Another tough handicap to finish the day but three-year-olds have been successful in all but one of the four renewals and can continue the trend. Brendan Brackan made a winning debut at Down Royal before an encouraging run on very testing ground at Naas. He'll progress further and should be in the frame though may find SUEHAIL too strong. David Marnane's colt showed his battling qualities to score here a month ago and a 4lb rise shouldn't be enough to prevent him going in again. Sindjara has been handed a 10lb rise for her convincing success at Down Royal and John Oxx' progressive filly is expected to defy the extra with a big run. Mark Johnston has a good strike-rate on the track so the presence of Colour Guard, with Joseph O'Brien on board, has to be a pointer.
