CATHERINE OF SIENA has shown plenty of pace on all six starts and should enjoy this drop back to the minimum trip. The daughter of U S Navy Flag made most of the running when runner-up to Queen Maedbh here over six furlongs before opening her account last month with a wide-margin success. Excesso Velocidad showed promise in a barrier trial here this summer and was prominent throughout when successful, also over six furlongs, a fortnight ago. Maggie Mcgrath weakened in the closing stages when about two lengths behind but could well be a factor over this trip.
Prediction : 1st Catherine Of Siena 2nd Excesso Velocidad 3rd Maggie Mcgrath

CYBER ATTACK made a promising debut over this trip at the Curragh in July and again shaped with credit the following month behind Madly Truly in a Naas maiden that has thrown up a number of winners, including Group 3 scorer Lumiere Rock. Sound Of The Night is well treated by the conditions of the race and beat all bar Mere Accountant on debut over C&D last month, while Brasilian Princess and Monophonic also both filled the runner-up spot over this trip here in recent weeks. Vittoria Colanna is one of three newcomers from the Joseph O'Brien yard and the Caravaggio filly, out of a winning Galileo mare, is closely related to Telescope and Moon Ballad.
Prediction : 1st Cyber Attack 2nd Sound Of The Night 3rd Vittoria Colanna

BOLD RIBB may have been found a good opportunity to open his account. The son of Ribchester was placed on debut for Roger Varian and was then absent for over six months before running quite freely over a mile at Killarney. The Joseph O'Brien-trained colt was subsequently only caught close home last month by stablemate Sheer Chance, with Bambino Cavallo well behind, and should be suited by this step back in trip. Esta Ella Fuera could take a hand if building on her debut here last month but Tellthemi'mhere has failed to recapture her decent placed form of last year following a lengthy layoff. Andy Oliver saddled a double here on Wednesday and any market move for Secret Spy would be interesting.
Prediction : 1st Bold Ribb 2nd Esta Ella Fuera 3rd Secret Spy

Bellick and LION RING filled minor places behind Leclerc over C&D last week and slight preference is given to the latter on these revised terms. The selection has been frustrating to follow for a number of trainers and went agonisingly close on his penultimate start, also over this trip. Bellick has gained all five wins over six furlongs but appears better served now by this distance. Malaysian came out best in a blanket finish over a mile last Friday, with Hurricane Helen (second reserve) and Havana Pearl both close behind. The latter ran keenly on that occasion after nearly eight months off and is one for the shortlist, along with Delta Romeo.
Prediction : 1st Lion Ring 2nd Bellick 3rd Havana Pearl

JAZZY DANCER was behind two of today's rivals over course and distance nine days ago but might turn the form around. He finished two and a half lengths behind winner Leclerc but is now 16lb better off and while his only win has been over five furlongs, he seems to stay this distance quite well. Leclerc is still somewhat unexposed on the all-weather and while open to more progression, also meets the third-placed Numoor on 9lb worse terms. Caesar's Comet is a six-time winner but was well held in seventh in that recent race. The Bog Bnk is in good heart but most of her form is at a mile, while Circles has recent form and is tried in first-time blinkers. Capla Knight competes from a career-low rating and ran well when third over a mile here last week.
Prediction : 1st Jazzy Dancer 2nd Leclerc 3rd Numoor

19:30 Dundalk

ROUGH DIAMOND struck from 7lb lower over course and distance in October and remains unexposed on this surface. Previously a soft-ground performer on grass, he has taken well to the all-weather, won readily in October, and is ideally suited to this distance. Dream Today was second in that October race and is 9lb better off but might struggle to turn placings, while fourth-placed Ampeson has been busy and has place claims on recent form. Hodd's Girl is in form and has an excellent all-weather record but competes from a career-high mark and is closely matched with Ivasecret, who ran well on debut for new connections last month and likes all-weather surfaces. Rocky Dreams is a five-time course winner, landing four claimers, but is held by Hodd's Girl and debuts for a new yard.
Prediction : 1st Rough Diamond 2nd Dream Today 3rd Hodds Girl

20:00 Dundalk

SAMROGUE was virtually pulled up with a slipped saddle last month and has useful form. She was travelling well when eased two furlongs out in that race, is progressive and well suited to the all-weather. Inishmot Prince also operates well on this surface and at this distance and has obvious claims from 3lb higher than when winning recently. Capuchinero was beaten from a rating of 66 here in November, but that was her reappearance run and yard debut. She won a C&D maiden last week and can get involved, despite meeting more experienced rivals. Gobi Star won a claimer on his all-weather debut in November and runs for new connections but has plenty of weight, while Pretty Smart disappointed on her most recent run. Collective Power, Scarlet Dancer and eight-year-old Tai Sing Yeh are consistent, while Irish Millions is long absent.
Prediction : 1st Samrogue 2nd Inishmot Prince 3rd Capuchinero

20:30 Dundalk

By Galileo and out of a Group 3-winning mare who has produced two black type performers, PRINCESS WANNABE was well beaten in Leopardstown and Curragh maidens but shaped well on her all-weather and handicap debut. She could be a handicap blot with that experience behind her. Matilda With Me defeated a subsequent winner to score last month and competes from 3lb higher, while Shona Mea, who finished third, ran well when occupying the same position a fortnight ago. The Lion Strikes, fifth in the November race, was a close third 16 days ago and is a progressive three-year-old. Maura's Gift, another three-year-old, beat Chateau Musar to win over course and distance recently, while eight-time winner Getaway Queen was well beaten in a recent Listed hurdle but had won over two miles here just three days earlier. Lariat has won just twice from 57 runs but has form.
Prediction : 1st Princess Wannabe 2nd Matilda With Me 3rd Shona Mea
