Very little form to go on here with Castle Chase possibly the best of those with experience after a fair debut at Leopardstown last summer. His stable companion Shelir is the second foal of a mare who produced a 7f winner with her first while Tracker Saga hails from Jim Bolger's in-form yard though he has a middle-distance pedigree. JUST SO, one of only two three-year-old fillies in the race, is by Galileo and a half-sister to the Group 1 winner Mukhadram. She won't need to be a world-beater to make a successful start and is handed the vote though the market should be watched for clues. Starlite Dancer is a half-brother to a couple of decent winners at this trip and is another to note.
