Form & Verdict
Has an experience edge over these rivals and decent ground likely up her street, although is versatile in that sense; not disgraced finishing seventh in Apprentice Derby 16 days ago and possible she'll enjoy this smaller field (Leopardstown win came in eight-runner affair); step up from that effort required but should go well.

Form & Verdict
Big weight is slightly offset by booking of useful 7lb claimer; return to this trip looks a positive move after staying on well to only be beaten a neck over 1m1.5f at Ballinrobe 20 days ago, although was safely held in fourth when trying 1m4.5f at Tipperary two starts ago; sets solid standard.

Form & Verdict
Looked like he'd be up to winning a handicap after hitting fame on first two starts of the season at Gowran and Limerick; ran below that standard when down the field at Sligo since, but track possibly didn't play to his strengths on that occasion; freshened up since; respected if back to best.
