Form & Verdict

Won a handicap and ran well in stakes company on good but standout performances came on testing ground in Britain last term, facile handicap win at Nottingham and five-runner Group 3 success at Newbury; had his ground when held in recent starts; handicapper relenting and down in grade but opposable on this terrain.

J: James Ryan

T: Jack W Davison

Proved himself in the mud when winning a 5f Group 3 at Newbury last September; that doesn't look solid form though and he's been well held in three runs since (two this year); others appeal as being better treated.

Form & Verdict

Not a frequent winner by any means and not shown much last two runs but ran well on AW return in March and now 7lb lower; has run some crackers in defeat at this venue and should be okay on the ground.

Form & Verdict

Won at Cork over 5f and second off 7lb higher mark in 6f Curragh premier handicap for Fozzy Stack last term; was on the right part of track when behind a couple of these over C&D last month and beaten fav when dropped in grade at Tipperary since; hood needs to do something and doubt he wants ground as quick as this.

Form & Verdict

Late headway when 2l behind Mehman on reappearance over C&D; beaten less than 2l in Curragh handicaps over farther since including when dropped in grade over 6.3f on Wednesday, a race he had won last year; will like the ground but doubt he'll have the gears over this trip; 1lb wrong.

4 yo Filly

OR: 80

Form & Verdict

Shot up the ratings after pair of easy AW victories in March/April; wasn't able to transfer that improvement to turf when well held over C&D last month, nearly 4l behind Mehman; faster ground may help; blinkers worn in last four starts left off.

J: Wayne Hassett

T: W P Browne

Came good with an emphatic success at Dundalk (5f, Polytrack) last month and she backed that up with a creditable second there 16 days ago; has shot up in the weights since her win but she still looks feasibly treated and is respected on this switch to Tapeta.

Made hay last year when winning six races for James McAuley, one of them here; big prices when out the back on first two starts for this yard last month and opposable at present.
