33/1

E17,000 purchase as a yearling and some promise to be taken from the pedigree, but yard not known for first-time winners and the tongue-tie on for debut another concern.

Looked a winner in waiting on his close third at Naas in March but most disappointing when well beaten at odds-on last time. That run best forgotten (possibly ground to blame) and if getting back on track, has chances here.

Cost £20,000 as a yearling, dam of little account but was related to a couple of winners. Others make a bit more appeal on paper.

Has had a few tries at winning already, three runner-up spots to show for his efforts but disappointing when a well-beaten favourite at Chelmsford last time out. May find others improving past him here.

Tailed off on both starts last year and makes very little appeal here. May have more chance in handicaps after this run.

Second at Bellewstown his best effort of four last year and but that was on better ground than he is likely to encounter here. May need this run after his winter break anyway, and others preferred.

Bounced back from a poor effort at Galway by finishing second at Cork in a handicap last time out, form that gives him a decent shout here. Handles the likely soft ground and should run his race once more.

Stuck to it late on to finish midfield over a trip too short on his Naas debut last month, and this trip should prove more suitable. Plenty more needed on that but in good hands and should improve. Outside chance.

Has run well on both starts so far, following up his close fifth on debut at Dundalk by finishing runner-up there latest. Needs to translate that form to turf now but every chance he will, and looks one of the more likely ones.

Well beaten at big prices on both starts to date and makes next to no appeal as the winner here.

Mixed messages to be taken from the form of his debut fourth here last September and then did not perform as the market expected at Limerick last month. Bit to prove after that, although better ground here may help.

In the frame all three starts and back to form when second at Leopardstown last time, looking like this step up to a mile would suit. Cheekpieces on now, which may help her finishing effort, and has to be considered.

Betting

Forecast

Escapability (5/4), Shifted Strategy (11/2), Treble Cone (6/1), Shareva (7/1), My Snowdrop (11/1), Irish Minister (14/1), Maunganui (14/1), Indie Groove (16/1), Signing Off (25/1), Arctic Edge (33/1), Magnetic North (50/1), Capitalist Queen (66/1)

Verdict

SHIFTED STRATEGY has had a few goes already but tends to run his race more often than not and in the likely soft ground, can put his experience to good use, and come out on top in an open looking maiden. Escapability needs a poor effort last time forgiving but would have an excellent chance on earlier form. Shareva is another that should go close and if Treble Cone is as happy on turf as sand, then he too comes into the reckoning.
