8/1

Group 3 winner in 2015 and while he's not won since, he produced a good effort at Naas on reappearance in March when just touched off. Well beaten in Listed class last time over C&D and needs to bounce back here in first-time tongue-tie.

Won twice last year and well suited to 5f on fast ground. Absence to overcome but ran well on reappearance last campaign and should run well.

Winner at the Curragh on debut in 2016 and went close to following up back at that course next time but has shaped as if amiss on subsequent starts and clearly not the easiest to train. Hard to fancy.

5/2

A seven time winner in her career with most of those efforts coming on AW. Fine effort at Dundalk last time but she needs more here and tends to struggle off marks this high.

14/1

Gained his first win since 2016 over C&D earlier in the season but all his best form has come with cut in the ground and he's struggled on his last two outings. Wants an uncontested lead to be seen at his best.

Has won two of his last four starts but has never seemed quite as effective over the minimum trip and widest draw to contend with here.

In a poor run of form and losing streak goes all the way back to 2013. Remarkably only 3lb below that last winning mark and hard to fancy until he's cut some slack from the handicapper.

8/1

Not the most straightforward sort and struggles to win as many races as he should. There's a suspicion he's well handicapped and has run some fair races on turf so can't be ruled out.

Winner of a valuable handicap over C&D last year and returned with a promising effort off this mark at Dundalk last time. Less exposed than most and she should go well.

Curragh winner on handicap debut this time last year but has struggled off her revised mark since. Stable have stronger claims with Snowstar.

Generally a consistent sort, though well beaten here last time and has a tough ask from 10lb out of the handicap against these rivals.

Betting

Forecast

Oneoveryou (5/2), Blue Uluru (4/1), St Brelades Bay (13/2), Smash Williams (8/1), Alfredo Arcano (8/1), Snowstar (12/1), Abstraction (14/1), Sors (14/1), Mister Trader (16/1), Solar Halo (20/1), Haqeeba (25/1)

Verdict

SNOWSTAR gets her optimum conditions and ought to run well if she's ready to go on her return. Alfredo Arcano looks like a tricky customer but he's more than capable at this level while Smash Williams isn't ruled out if the first-time headgear does the trick.
  1. Snowstar
  2. Alfredo Arcano
  3. Smash Williams
