Lost his way towards the end of his time with John Quinn and five starts here for new yard have not shown him to be back on the right path. Limited hopes back on turf.

A 16-race maiden, needs to find something extra back on turf off this rating, though the ground is a plus today.

Eight-race maiden but some promising efforts from the Bated Breath filly in maidens, potentially on a decent mark going handicapping off a layoff, though might need more than 6f.

Exposed maiden, has failed to get off the mark in AW maidens this year, must improve now switched back to this surface from this rating.

Beaten out of sight on handicap debut over C&D already this month, change here appears to hinge on better ground changing his fortunes.

Winner when in Britain for Richard Hannon and runner-up for Richard Fahey. Well beaten on all four starts for current yard and refused to race when last spotted on the AW at Dundalk in March.

Yet to score in 25 starts on turf and just 3-65 all told. Was running poorly on the AW earlier this year but couldn't be completely ruled out from this mark on turf.

Been fairly consistent in early 2018 without winning (mostly on AW), though weakened out of contention this month at the Curragh (5½f, yielding to soft) and hard to rely on after that effort.

Twice gone close in AW contests at Lingfield and Dundalk over similar trips of late, she reverts to turf on a fair mark if able to transfer that form across in an open heat.

Mark already in freefall after some well below par efforts and hard to see why he should turn things around here.

Won a Listowel contest over this distance in September, well beaten over C&D 13 days ago on seasonal bow, handicapped to have claims if coming on for that run.

Didn't show a lot of promise in AW maidens over 6f/7f around the turn of the year and needs to pick things up considerably now switched to turf and trying a handicap.

Unable to land any sort of blow so far on AW/turf in maidens and handicaps over a variety of trips. Would take a leap of faith to see him winning this.

Forecast

Focus Of Attention (4/1), Count Of Carabass (5/1), Pillar (5/1), Time Stands Still (11/2), Steelriver (7/1), Bay Of Skaill (9/1), Above Us Only Sky (9/1), Delegating (10/1), Rimshot (12/1), Solomons Seal (12/1), Ancient Astronaut (16/1), Althib (18/1), Intense Starlet (20/1), Scobias (20/1), Dash D'Or (25/1), Blue Suede (25/1), Blue Bounty (33/1)

Verdict

TIME STANDS STILL has been threatening to get a breakthrough on the AW recently and is on a feasible mark now switching to this surface in a heat where there are not outstanding candidates. Bay Of Skaill should also have claims, if the trip isn't on the sharp side while the likes of Focus Of Attention and Pillar can also have a case made, though the latter was poor last time out.
  1. Time Stands Still
