Form & Verdict

0-10 but went close in a C&D heavy ground handicap last term and now 5lb lower; probably needed her return at Killarney and respected, particularly with some rain expected.

Didn't go on from her initial AW promise as a 2yo but best run since was a 2nd over 7f in a handicap here last year; a repeat of that will see her go close and Keane aboard is a positive.

Six-race maiden but one of her better efforts when seventh in a Navan maiden when last seen; might need this after a three-month break and probably needs improvement to defy this mark.

String of poor efforts in Ireland last year and not much was seemingly expected for her new yard at Lingfield recently; she won with a bit in hand, though, and will only have learned from that, so could well defy a 5lb rise.

Now a 34-race maiden, placed eight times but hard to have much confidence in him, since he has been no closer than tenth in three starts this season; has slumped in the rating since 2021 when he had good form including a C&D second in a maiden.

Promising return when fourth at Listowel and bounced back from a lesser run to finish runner-up (beaten 1l) at Killarney last month; 2lb rise fair but may need a bit further than 7f these days.

All three wins have come on AW but she handles soft ground; however, needs to bounce back from a poor run at Naas (6f, soft) last time and while she stays this trip, her best form is over a bit shorter.

Verdict

Barnhill Rose is in fine form and will be a big threat if she gets in the race (first reserve). ROSE OF MALTA could be the way to go if she comes on from her low-key reappearance and returns to the level of form that saw her narrowly denied over C&D last season. Han Solo is respected after a narrow defeat at Killarney last month and the unexposed Miss Slovakia is another to keep on side. [Phill Anderson]
