ON OUR RADAR improved from a mildly promising debut before Christmas to fill the runner-up berth behind an easy winner over 6f here last time. He showed a bit of pace on that occasion and coming from the inside stall should be of benefit to him over the minimum distance. Maid To Shine has run a couple of sound races over 6f here and has the advantage of being an older filly with most of her rivals having just turned three. Although holding a modest rating of 52, she may not be far away. From a fast family and related to several five-furlong winners, Royal Pompom makes his debut in an ordinary contest and market moves should be noted. Diamondsinthesand, second at Naas in November and not beaten far on his last two starts at this venue, has place claims.
Prediction : 1st On Our Radar 2nd Maid To Shine 3rd Royal Pompom

Narrowly beaten on her last two starts over C&D, GRACESOLUTION is worth another chance. Twice a winner over shorter trips on turf last summer, Ross O'Sullivan's mare stays this trip all right and has done little wrong in defeat lately. She's up 5lb in total for those two reverses but still appeals as one who can win again. Bambeano got the better of the selection in early January and is better off at the weights but her victory came out of the blue and she may have to give best this time. Hinemoa was, like Bambeano, a long-priced winner last time and, lightly-raced for one of her age, can go well again while Chutzpal won over 1m2f here in November but had twice run well over this trip prior to that. He starts out for an in-form yard now. Oranmore was pipped here last time but a 6lb hike leaves him up against it.
Prediction : 1st Gracesolution 2nd Hinemoa 3rd Chutzpal

TWENTYNINE PALMS has shown promise over a mile on her first two starts and gets the vote with a tongue-tie now fitted. The daughter of American Pharaoh has been keeping on in her races and looks worth a try over this longer trip. Cooler was a couple of lengths in front of the selection in the fog here before Christmas but had the advantage of a run under her belt on that occasion. On pedigree, she may appreciate this longer trip and has her chance. Luigi Antinori was quite well fancied when beaten six lengths on debut over a mile here in December and may improve significantly for that experience. He gives Joseph O'Brien a strong hand. Segomo was second in a Leopardstown maiden before disappointing on second start at the Curragh. He's since been gelded and returns from an eight month lay-off.
Prediction : 1st Twentynine Palms 2nd Cooler 3rd Luigi Antinori

ISOTTA did little wrong on debut for Ado McGuinness when runner-up over 1m4f here a fortnight ago. The Camelot filly had Zawahir back in fourth when second to a subsequent Listed winner at Bellewstown in the summer. That was her final start for Ger Lyons and she subsequently had a spell in France where she went close over 1m7f. Having had a little lay-off before her latest run, she can come on enough to score although the drop in trip is a slight concern. Rockview Consort has been beaten less than a length in similar contests over C&D on her last three starts and looks sure to go close again. Banned, only fractions behind the latter here in December, was placed twice when trained in Britain and has the rating to be competitive. Well-bred Soul Control is a newcomer to note for a yard with a good recent record at this venue.
Prediction : 1st Isotta 2nd Rockview Consort 3rd Banned

The handicapper has dropped ARCANEARS down to a mark of 65 which gets him into this basement grade and he can land his fifth victory in Dundalk. He has been putting in consistent performances and wasn't beaten far into fifth in his last couple of starts, in higher grades, over this trip. Royal Tribute won a claimer over C&D in December and Colin Keane is a notable booking. Indiana Grey was a solid second over C&D last month which gives her a chance. Eruption didn't run badly on his Irish debut when fifth over 6f at this track. This is his first crack at 7f. Prince Of Flight has moved to Denis Hogan from Robert Cowell in Britain. He starts his Irish career on a lowly mark with 10lb claimed off his back, and a decent run wouldn't be a surprise.
Prediction : 1st Arcanears 2nd Royal Tribute 3rd Indiana Grey

A very tricky race. DUTCH GLORY won over C&D on her penultimate start in January before having to chart a wide course when fifth over 1m on her latest outing. She appeals back at this trip. Adatorio is of interest on his Irish debut for Denis Hogan. On his last start for Clive Cox, he stayed on to be a close fifth over an extended 7f at Wolverhampton. Several winners have come out of that race. Selective Power in blinkers with James Ryan claiming a handy 7lb is another to consider from a good draw. The Cola Brasil likes this trip and was just a head behind Dutch Glory in second in that aforementioned race. He is likely to post another solid effort. Leanne Breen's stable has hit form and Woodrow is more than capable of bouncing back. He gets a first-time visor and is on a mark he can do damage off.
Prediction : 1st Dutch Glory 2nd Adatorio 3rd Selective Power

HODD'S GIRL and 7lb-claimer Adam Caffrey are proving to be an excellent partnership. The apprentice has conjured up four wins and a runner-up spot from their six spins together at this track. The grey mare clearly relishes the Polytrack and is strong at the end of her races, so has a fair shot at defying an 8lb rise. Ado McGuinness also runs Hightimeyouwon who took the scalp of Hodd's Girl by three-quarters of a length over C&D last month. That brings him right into the equation. Tosen Wish has a long absence to overcome, but has switched to Joseph O'Brien and won't be lacking in fitness. He was last seen winning over 5f at Navan in October 2021. J J Jumbo was a winner over C&D last summer. He could go well at a price.
Prediction : 1st Hodds Girl 2nd Hightimeyouwon 3rd Tosen Wish

COLLECTIVE POWER can regain a winning thread. He suffered a nightmare route when unplaced in a much higher grade last month. He is better assessed on a trio of placed efforts prior to that run. He should be a big player in this company. Tawaazon kept on in fourth in a better-class race over this trip last month and that reads well. Zig Zag Zyggy has been a beaten favourite on his last three outings, so doesn't come without risks, however, there is no doubt he is on an appealing mark with Adam Caffrey claiming 7lb. He wasn't beaten far in those races and another turn is looming. Hypernova won over this trip in Fairyhouse last summer and shouldn't be a backmarker. No Speed Limit puts a shift in every day and is likely to be in there pitching for prize money.
Prediction : 1st Collective Power 2nd Tawaazon 3rd Zig Zag Zyggy
