Form & Verdict
No match for Entropy in a maiden at Sligo in May; made all to beat a couple of decent dual-purpose performers in 1m5f maiden at Down Royal but has weakened right out of contention on first two starts in handicaps; comes back in trip now but hard to fancy.

Form & Verdict
Won AW maiden at Dundalk last year and third to Ides Of August in handicap at same venue next time; found only one too good in premier handicaps over 1m2f/1m4f in early summer but bombed out last time on Irish Derby weekend at the Curragh; comes back in trip and tried in new headgear combination.

Beaten only a length in C&D handicaps in April/May before easily breaking his maiden at Sligo; disappointing in a premier handicap back here last month but worth another chance.

Form & Verdict
Has only won once in 15 starts since winning the first two races of his career at three but he's a very capable sort; won here last year and runner-up in a C&D premier handicap off this mark; slowly away before running on well when beaten less than 3l on Cork return in April; not seen since but decent record fresh.

Won a sprint maiden on 2yo debut at Navan; never a factor over this distance on reappearance but kept on well for second at the Curragh (1m) last month when blinkered and ridden to get the trip; must still be reservations about her stamina for 1m2f.
