Form & Verdict

Winning miler at Killarney for previous yard; only blip for this one came when well held in the Ulster Derby and he bounced back from that when only narrowly failing to get up over C&D on Wednesday; Colin Keane replaces a 7lb claimer with a hood turned to; obvious claims.

Plenty of promise in seven defeats for Ralph Beckett; hood added for her stable debut over 7f here on Wednesday and she went down fighting after racing close to a strong pace; returning to 1m won't faze her; much respected.

Only 3l away in a Sligo 1m2f maiden and racing freely in front was no help when upped to 1m4f on his handicap debut at Fairyhouse (first-time cheekpieces now absent); having first run at 1m but that could be a good thing.

Failed to win in Ireland but he went close at Nottingham on his stable debut last month before an easy win at Pontefract nine days ago (1m2f, soft); 3lb well in under a penalty and the return of cheekpieces could have a positive effect; strong claims.
