In depth


Sea of Blue is likely to make a bold bid to keep the Joseph O'Brien bandwagon rolling as he has followed his very consistent form at Dundalk with a couple of very good runs on Turf. Navegante was behind him at Wexford last month but did better when dropped down to 1m1f at Gowran where he also found the quicker ground more to his liking. PIROLO was having only his sixth race when comfortably landing a Navan handicap last month. He's been raised 11lb but looks better than a 58-rated handicapper and can complete a double. Trans City hasn't won since 2011 but can't go much lower in the weights.
