He's No Saint did nothing wrong when narrowly beaten by Pleasant Bay at Dundalk and will improve though there are likely to be some smart newcomers here. Kevin Prendergast won the race a year ago and the Nayef colt Abushamah, whose dam has produced winners with her first four offspring, is one to note. Solar Focus makes a quick reappearance after a moderate debut at Gowran on Wednesday and Centre Of Interest may be a better proposition for Jim Bolger. Primogeniture, who is out of a classic winning mare in India, would be a welcome winner for John Oxx but once again it's Ballydoyle who should hold the aces with MASAI, by Oasis Dream out of a mare who produced a Grade 2 winner in the USA with her first foal, taken to see off stablemate Agena, though the latter is related to six winners.
