Form & Verdict

Despite running green, went very close in a maiden on debut at Gowran early last season; lost out narrowly to the experienced Squire Danagher over the extended 1m2f at Dundalk in January; that form worked out well but he was an unplaced favourite on his return to turf at Gowran last month; back in trip now with cheekpieces on for handicap debut.

Despite running green, went very close in a maiden over an extended 1m1f at this venue a year ago; just lost out to the experienced Squire Danaher over the extended 1m4f at Dundalk in January; the winner followed up in handicap company, and third-placed Morse has also won a handicap; strong contender.

Form & Verdict

Four-time winner, likes a sound surface; good effort in a 1m Dundalk race early last month having been consistent at that venue without winning last November/December; met trouble in running at Cork last time and did well in the circumstances to finish a close-up third of 18.

Form & Verdict

Flat maiden, three-time hurdles winner, all here, her local track; has also shown her best form on the Flat at this track, including when third in this race last year; should be better for her run here ten days ago and could not be left out of calculations despite the drawback of being 6lb out of the handicap.

Form & Verdict

Best form has been on her trainer's Scottish raids; won over 1m1f at Musselburgh last August, later second at Ayr and Hamilton; respectable runs at Naas and the Curragh before winning on his return to Ayr late last month; possibly a bit high in the weights now.
