Form & Verdict
Really good start to last season, winning heavy-ground Group 3 at Leopardstown on first start, second in Dante and running-on third in Derby; bombed out in Irish Derby before running respectably in Leopardstown Group 3; might be better over 1m4f but the one to beat on the figures if back to his best.

Form & Verdict
Unraced at two and just the four starts in fillies-only company last year, winning a Gowran maiden on debut and career-best when readily landing 1m1f Fairyhouse Group 3 in September; unraced on worse than yielding and this will be tougher against some hardy boys.

Decent filly goes best on testing ground, winning a Navan Listed and Saint-Cloud Group 3 last season in such conditions over this trip; is 3lb better off for a 3/4l beating by White Birch in the Group 3 Alleged Stakes on return, so there should be little between them today.

Mudlark won Group 1 here in 2021; has had physical issues and hasn't come close to that form for some time although was Listed-placed over 1m4f here in November; been hurdling since and fair to say he's been underwhelming in that sphere given his Flat rating; race fitness a plus but doubt it'll be enough.

Won 2yo Group 2 in September 2022; missed all of last year and kept on for an encouraging third in Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh (10.5f, good to yielding) last month on third start back; doesn't have White Birch or Auguste Rodin to worry about today and the step up to 1m4f may be a positive, but he was beaten 11l last time and needs a sizeable step forward.
