GLOUNTHAUNE could be better than his Dewhurst display and Seamie Heffernan's presence on board is a positive. A winner of a smart maiden in April, he returned from a 175 days break at Newmarket when he stumbled leaving the stalls, met a little traffic trouble with two furlongs to race before staying on reasonably well in the final furlong. Progression from the run is likely. Homeless Songs won a hot maiden well over CD in July and also performed well when fifth in the Moyglare. She has plenty in her favour and should give the selection plenty to worry about. New Energy is a good prospect and won in taking style on debut last month. The runner-up had won a Barrier Trial while the third was a close second subsequently, giving some weight to the form, and he should get involved, with progression also likely. Howth has run well in two Group 2s recently while The Acropolis is similarly able, although both needs to improve to win. Pennine Hills ran over an inadequate 5f at Dundalk latest while Confident Star and Jack Rose were maiden winners on their latest starts while Boundless Ocean was touched off when second in a Curragh maiden in Thursday.
