Czabo may be able to take advantage of any lack of fitness...Czabo may be able to take advantage of any lack of fitness of Somehow (who is the one to beat on form). She'll love the ground, having gained all her wins on softer ground and she was also 4th in last season's Irish 1000 Guineas on heavy behind 3 smart horses. She followed that run up with a listed win on soft in France. She failed to sparkle on first run back in France earlier this month but that run should have brought her on and Mick Channon's only runner at Naas in last 10 years was a 15/2 winner of the listed Sweet Mimosa Stakes.
Massif Central (each way) showed a decent level as a 2yo...Massif Central (each way) showed a decent level as a 2yo and if fit for this, should go close off 83. He was 3rd in a 6f race here on debut as a 2yo, behind 2 horses with previous experience, 2nd won next time and winner placed in a listed race since, both now rated 90+. He appeared to like move up to 7f when beaten just under a length in a Roscommon maiden. He ran in a valuable auction race over this CD on third run, and was beaten 2 necks into 3rd, just ahead of 4th Youareawonder, who placed in a listed race next time and is now rated 100. Massif Central may just not have quite got home in a 1m Dundalk maiden on last run, when a neck 2nd and had 2 subsequent winners behind him. Conditions should suit Massif Central today and 83 looks a fair mark. Dec Mcdonogh rides and looks a fair bet
