3 yo Gelding

OR:

Form & Verdict
Free Eagle gelding made winning debut last month in 1m4f Cork maiden, running green but really getting into his stride inside final furlong (third, fourth have both won since); stiffer test here should suit, not sure the quicker ground will; big jump in class but could go well.

Form & Verdict
Didn't appear after Leopardstown maiden win last July until never dangerous fifth of 7 in Group 3 Salsabil Stakes here last month (beaten over 4l); entitled to come on for that although not a certain stayer.

Form & Verdict
Last year's Zetland Stakes second probably didn't have a sufficient stamina test on seasonal return at Newmarket last month when only sixth in Fielden Stakes; more expected of upped in trip.

Gasper De Lemos

9st 6lb

J: Dylan Browne McMonagle

T: A P O’Brien

Unraced on firmer than good; rather put in his place in a Group 3 on final 2yo start and two Listed races this season, but he rallied well when a close third to Birdman (Wednesday's Queen's Vase third) over 1m5f at Navan last time and perhaps could have done with setting a stronger pace; top trainer (runs four) won this in 2019 and has had two runners on the premises since.
