Losing run stretches back to a Dundalk maiden win in 2021; not at his best this year although declining mark could bring him into it.

Form & Verdict

Won a Curragh maiden as a juvenile but form this term has been regressive; gelded since last run and first-time eye-shield here off reduced mark so not one to readily rule out.

Highly tried after winner a Curragh maiden as a 2yo; revived by the switch to AW this winter, winning a 6f handicap at Dundalk in December (solid form) and then an eyecatching third back there five weeks ago (10lb claimer reported after the race that he was keen not to hit the front too soon); unlikely to be seeing too much daylight from stall 2 and James Doyle takes over in the saddle; perhaps not straightforward but he appeals as being better than his mark.

Found himself badly handicapped after winning Curragh juvenile maiden but has begun to take advantage of a reduced mark since switched to this surface; ridden by this 10lb claimer when C&D winner from Dontspoilasale in November, 5lb higher now; fair chance

Form & Verdict

Progressive early in the season in testing conditions, winning Cork maiden and second in valuable Naas handicap; back from a break with better effort again at the Curragh on Saturday when clear second to a gambled-on winner over 1m; big chance here off same mark (raised 5lb in future) although ideally wants it softer.

Curragh maiden winner; raced freely and didn't see out the 1m on her handicap debut there (good) but dropped back to 7f at Fairyhouse on Friday evening she quite readily accounted for higher-rated opposition in a non-handicap; Hugh Horgan rides again and would command utmost respect if turned out again with a penalty.

Still progressing and in career best form this term; gained a fourth career success in a 5f handicap on his penultimate start and only narrowly denied over 6f at Naas since; up another 2lb and needs to prove he's as effective at 7f but plenty to like.
