It's Irish Cesarewitch day at the Curragh on Sunday and Racing Post tipster Graeme Rodway runs you through his best bets on the card at the County Kildare venue.
Shot Of Love @ 5/1
Power Under Me @ 5/1
The Irish EBF Maiden (1.25) looks like a good opportunity for Shot Of Love, who made an eyecatching debut over course and distance last month and has a big chance of progressing.
The 150,000gns yearling is a half-brother to a 7f two-year-old winner, so is bred to be precocious, and he showed more than his fair share of ability when sixth here 50 days ago.
Shot Of Love attracted some on course support and made good late headway to pass several rivals in the final three furlongs. He actually finished faster than anything and that was all after getting worked up beforehand.
That is strong form when you consider that the winner, Al Riffa, went on to land the Group 1 National Stakes at this track next time and Shot Of Love has similar potential judged on the promise he showed.
There should be plenty of further improvement to come with experience.
Colin Keane, who rode on his debut, is back in the saddle to partner Shot Of Love and, if he makes the progress expected from first-to-second start, he should be extremely hard to beat.
Art Power is a warm order for the Renaissance Stakes (3.05) and if he turns up on his best form he will make short work of these rivals.
However, he hasn't shown that level for more than a year and his recent efforts suggest he might be regressing now he is a five-year-old.
I couldn't have him on my mind at the odds available and much prefer the chances of Power Under Me, who has some smart form at this course and is progressive.
He was successful in a Listed race over course and distance on easy ground last season and returned from a winter break to land another one at Cork in April, again on yielding ground.
He probably found Group 2 company beyond him behind Brad The Brief next time and he would have preferred softer ground when he was beaten in a Listed event here two runs ago.
Trainer Ger Lyons gave him a 78-day break and Power Under Me shaped well when midfield over course and distance last time. He travelled well but got caught on the far side of the track when the action unfolded on the near side and ended up coming home well beaten.
He is better than that and might have needed the run on his return from a break, so better can be expected now that he has that under his belt. I'm expecting him to come on significantly.
The ease in the ground is in his favour and first-time blinkers might just do the trick with Keane back in the saddle, hopefully searching for a double after Shot Of Love in the first.
