Has had a torrid season well beaten in four handicap starts over a variety of distances. Difficult to see if first-time blinkers bring about any improvement.

Disappointed last time out at Navan but had previously shown plenty of promise over 6f at the Curragh and Fairyhouse but still a 16-race maiden.

Won over this distance in a Curragh handicap on good ground in May. Handled the heavy ground last time out at Listowel when sixth of 14 earlier in the month when beaten 4L. One for the shortlist.

Just one win from 15 on turf and little signs of any encouragement in two starts this season including a heavy defeat om her penultimate start at Dundalk last month beaten 26L. Others hold stronger profiles here.

Largely inconsistent this season with a more satisfactory run last time out when fourth of 14 beaten 3 ¼ l in a Listowel handicap over an extended 6f. Hard to trust on recent performances.

Genuine and consistent throughout the summer without winning - last win in April 2016 - including second of 14 last time out in a Listowel handicap over the extended 6f beaten 1¼L. The filly is clearly in good form with herself.

Has been below-par for the majority of the season including a 7¼L defeat last time out - despite finishing third. First-time blinkers added to tongue-tie today will hope to bring about some improvement.

Forecast

Free To Roam (7/2), A Likely Story (5/1), Gopsies Daughter (11/2), D K Travel (7/1), Sweetest Taboo (8/1), Landline (12/1), Gifted Lady (12/1), Peace Mission (12/1), Intense Starlet (14/1), Ai Chan (16/1), Roryslittlesister (20/1), Feotanach (20/1), Olaudah (20/1), Sarah Ash Calum (33/1), Miss Florence (33/1), The Greedy Yank (33/1), La Canaada (33/1), There's The Rain (40/1), Baile Ghilibert (50/1)

Verdict

FREE TO ROAM has been running gallantly for the majority of the season and finds herself 8lb lower than her last win which puts her in pole position to add to her single career win here. Speed could possibly come from the returning La Canada with Gopsie's Daughter and A Likely Story hitting the frame.
