In depth

Verdict

Ma Fee Heela is obviously well regarded as he started favourite for his debut at Naas last month where he couldn't match the pace of the much more experienced filly Alphabet, who was receiving 7lb. Aidan O'Brien trains the winner and has MUSIC BOX engaged here though she's only allowed to run due to an appeal. A staying-on third behind stable companion Asking at Dundalk, the stewards banned her for 42 days and suspended jockey Wayne Lordan so all eyes will be on her here. World Tax War made a very encouraging debut over the course and distance in October and has to be of interest along with Dermot Weld's newcomer So You Thought, a half-brother to a winner in France, and Jim Bolger's Free Ranger, a 150,000gns foal out of an unraced mare.
