Form & Verdict

Irish-trained 6yo who is a longstanding maiden and has been soundly beaten the last twice (1m4f, good); however, before those she was a close second of 15 at Limerick (1m3f, soft) and the return to slow ground offers hope.

Won over 1m4f in November and not bad runs since over that trip; probably stays 2m and has an each-way chance.

Form & Verdict

Well-beaten fourth of five here (1m2f, soft) on last month's handicap debut and has something to prove after that; however, he'd shaped previously as though this step up to 1m4f may suit and the added cheekpieces may be another positive; remains lightly raced and is not written off.

Form & Verdict

0-4 in Ireland but he was a fair fourth of seven on his handicap debut at Limerick (11.5f, good to firm) in June and showed promise on soft ground on his debut last October; sold for 10,000gns last month and could have a part to play on first run for his new yard.

J: Joe Leavy

T: Alexandra Dunn

Seven-race maiden; failed to sparkle in three attempts on turf (1m2f-1m4f) last summer for this doubly represented trainer; gelded since then and in freefall in the handicap; should be fine on AW (debut) but stamina reserves are untested, and therefore questionable at 1m6f.
