Won C&D maiden nearly a year ago (soft) and some solid runs in defeat this term, notably second over conventional 5f here; unable to go the pace at Tipperary on latest, this stiffer test sure to suit; down to a nice mark too.

Gained a first handicap success at Navan in October before a narrow defeat to Half Nutz over C&D; not as good twice since including his return here (7f) in March but entitled to come on for that and should appreciate return to 6f.

Best form has been over sprint trips here and at Navan; had today's rivals Zephron and Bonnyrigg behind when winning over an extended 5f at Navan last October; should not be far away if he stays.

Form & Verdict
Recorded seventh career win when lasting home at Bellewstown last week, idling a little and value for a bit more; already a four-time winner at this more conventional track and likes an ease so any rain would suit; won here off this mark this time last year and high on the shortlist again.

In good form at the back-end of last season, winning at Bellewstown before a narrow defeat at Navan; a player if he returns in that sort of form but best form is over shorter and he's got a 199-day absence to defy.

Form & Verdict
Decent level of form as a 2yo in second half of last year, twice runner-up at Dundalk before landing 5f maiden there in October, making most from wide draw and rallying well; year's absence suggests she has met problems and market probably best guide after year's absence on only third turf start.
