Approbare

9st 5lb

J: Chloe Byrne

T: T M Walsh

Has been trying since 2014; still runs an occasional decent race from time-to-time but he's only getting 2lb from a rival rated 18lb higher and he has to give weight to others rated higher than him.

Form & Verdict

Ordinary form on turf, good enough to finish second in a weak 5f maiden here 12 days ago; this looks a slightly stronger contest; place chance again if cheekpieces help to bring about some improvement.

Form & Verdict

Started to find his form at the end of his time with Michael Halford, for whom he was placed three times in September, including a good effort when second of 18 in a 1m handicap at the Curragh; drop to 7f seem to suit when second here a fortnight ago. perhaps another drop to 6f will do the trick.

Just took advantage of a winnable opportunity in a 6f maiden here in November; went closest since in a C&D handicap last month and the drop back to 6f probably didn't suit last time; back over probably his best trip here and looks a leading contender.

Verdict

This could be a suitable opportunity for STELLAR SPIRIT who has fair form at 7f/1m and is dropped to this trip for the first time. No Browsin deserves consideration on last year's third placing at this venue, rather than on the form of two turf outings this year. Cheval Blanc should enter calculations following his recent second over 5f here. [Alan Sweetman]
