Form & Verdict

Some fair maiden form before improvement in first-time cheekpieces to score over just shy of this trip at Roscommon early in the month, winning with plenty in hand; upped 6lb for that but looks the type to keep improving and should go well on return to handicap company.

All three starts have come on soft or heavy ground; decent third on debut at Killarney last year but was disappointing over C&D on return; better again at Leopardstown last time and gelded since; check the market on handicap debut.

Form & Verdict

Progressive handicapper, especially on soft ground, winning at Naas and chasing home a smart type at Navan over 1m2f; bit too keen and didn't appear to get home over today's trip at Galway on latest but not to be ruled out here providing he settles better.

Form & Verdict

Cork winner (1m2f) upped in trip since, not clear run when third behind Ameerat Jumaira at same track and was again doing best work at finish over 1m6f at Listowel when close third on soft, having been under pressure from some way out; seems to hit a flat spot in his races but no doubting his stamina and ground should suit.

Form & Verdict

Blinkered filly not without her quirks and can be keen but has won her first two handicaps, at Killarney and better again when easily shrugging off a 7lb rise over this trip at Cork; up a further 6lb which could be within her compass but ground concerns having been withdrawn at Listowel on soft.
