6 yo Filly

OR: 74

Form & Verdict

Defied a similar draw in this 12 months ago and returns off just 2lb higher; however, she lacks a run this time and the recent rain has done her few favours (best on good ground).

Narrowly got off the mark in a Fairyhouse handicap over this trip in June and two solid runs in defeat since; best form is on good ground, so significant rain may harm her chance.

J: Chris Hayes

Best form had been here on good ground until posting a career-best RPR in winning a big-field handicap at last year's Galway Festival (yielding to soft); returns off a 5lb higher mark but fair shout if resuming where he left off.

Maiden winner who had run some good races in handicaps before getting it in the stewards' room after suffering interference over 1m2f at Leopardstown two weeks ago (good); 6lb higher now but won't be bothered by softer ground.

Form & Verdict

Stays further and it was his stamina that got him home over this trip at Navan (yielding) 23 days ago; did travel well though before digging in and he looked ahead of his mark; whether that's true now after an 8lb rise remains to be seen and he's drawn wide, but still not ruled out.
