Sea The Stars gelding, made it two wins from four runs when easily scoring odds-on win at Listowel (1m6½f, good) in June last year. Off since and left Dermot Weld, a hood is added and this is tougher. Enters calculations no less.

Just the one win on turf (from 16), coming at Galway (7f, good) in July 2016. Run well enough in two AW outings at Dundalk this year to hold place claims.

Has won over this trip in Britain for trainer Eve Johnson-Houghton, poor in two hurdles starts for this yard around turn of the year, needs his best stuff to score off this mark on return to Flat.

Montjeu gelding is a dual-purpose performer and improved the best part of a stone on the Flat last year, entitled to be in the mix on return from this rating, though perhaps will need the run. Market can tell more.

Halling filly, scored twice during 2017 for Ralph Beckett, no concerns over the ground and trip but the handicapper hasn't taken any undue risks on first start for new trainer.

Formerly trained by Sir Michael Stoute, two from three for these connections last term and found only one too strong on return at Navan (1m, heavy) last month. Back up in trip, likely to be competitive.

Born To Sea colt already a winner in France (claimer), hard to know what to make of that form and market may tell more on first start for new connections.

Winner over extended-mile at Cork (soft) in October for this trainer, behind Inscribe subsequently over this trip at Naas. Finished 6L second at Cork in March on reappearance, yard faring much better now.

Poor on reappearance at Cork last month over extended-mile, likely going to be waiting for firmer surface before having a chance to showcase his best.

Lightly-raced colt who won a Navan maiden over 1m on his second and final race of last season. Last of three when weakening on seasonal debut in a Cork 1m½f contest in March. Up in trip.

Redcar maiden winner on good ground over this trip almost a year ago for Luca Cumani, not without promise thereafter in four handicaps. First start for new connections and worth a second look.

Maiden winner over similar trip at Dundalk in February on sixth start, has run well on turf and will handle any ground. Opening handicap mark doesn't appear lenient.

More poor efforts than good ones during 2017, most recent winning form has come on better ground and possibly best watched on seasonal bow.

Roscommon maiden winner over this trip on heavy last August, then found things hard going in pair of handicaps in soft going. Assessor has relented somewhat for this return to action.

Twice a winner over his trip for Richard Hannon, has shown enough in three runs for this trainer to suggest he'll get more wins and has benefit of last month's Leopardstown run behind him.

Forecast

Inscribe (3/1), Rickrack (10/3), Escamillo (10/1), Winston Wolfe (11/1), Giorni Felice (12/1), Spruce Meadows (14/1), Pando (14/1), Bigger And Better (14/1), Fiesole (14/1), Near Kettering (16/1), Toulson (16/1), Pandagreen (16/1), Hamley (16/1), Tirmizi (20/1), Harebell (25/1), Admodum (25/1), Vastonea (25/1), Castle Guest (33/1)

Verdict

Inscribe will be popular for the Lyons/Keane team after a good reappearance over a shorter trip and should be in the mix when it counts, while Giorni Felice has winning form over the trip and gets a chance from the handicapper on this return to action. Tirmizi, Toulson and Rickrack have their merits but PANDAGREEN represents a trainer going great runs, has won over the trip and is capable of going well fresh on any ground. She gets the nod.
