Good efforts here over 6f/7f on first two starts this term, runner-up at Navan since on first attempt at the mile. Creeping up the weights but was a good-ground winner last season and may find more on this surface.

Had more than 3L to spare on runner-up Band Of Outlaws last time they met at Navan (1m, soft), since found things tough going off increased rating at Chester in a tougher contest than this.

Improving Galileo colt, won a mile maiden on the AW at Dundalk this month and backed that up with second at the Curragh (1m, yielding to soft) off this mark, likely more to come on better surface forecast here for respected connections.

Lightly-raced Kodiac colt, won a 7f AW maiden at Dundalk in November. Not beaten far despite finishing last of four in April and very much entitled to improve for that run. Worth considering back on turf.

Returned from winter break having been gelded and duly notched a 7f AW handicap at Dundalk in early April. Upped in distance and 2lb higher here, second Ger Lyons runner and both can be given a chance.

Lope De Vega colt kept some decent company last year before shedding maiden tag in 7f Dundalk contest in December. Should be better things to come this season.

Galway maiden winner last summer (7f, soft), made bright start in handicaps but regressed a bit since. Behind a couple of these over the trip at Navan last month but that was a step in the right direction.

Mastercraftsman filly cost €35,000 as a yearling and showed some potential in three turf starts last summer over 6f/7f. Perhaps needed outing over 1m2½f at Dundalk a fortnight ago and immediate 4lb relief should help back down in trip.

Lope De Vega gelding related to multiple winners, made winning start last month in 7f Limerick maiden (soft to heavy) and should have improvement on second start for the Weld team.

Exposed maiden, bits and bobs of form last season but doesn't appear to be particularly well treated on first start for 218 days.

Not really gone on from winning a 5f maiden at Naas on debut this time last year, poor effort over 6f at the Curragh last week on return and eased just 1lb. Needs a major step forward on that showing.

Finished third of six in 1m2f Navan contest last month on seasonal bow / handicap debut from this mark. Not discounted from doing better down to the mile with benefit of that run.

Thrice-raced maiden, has made presence felt in all three starts, on turf last summer and twice early this year on Dundalk's AW circuit over 7f. First attempt at the mile on handicap bow and one to take an interest in off a fair mark.

Roderic O'connor gelding improved to finish 2¼L fourth of eight on handicap bow at the Curragh in August off a mark of 75. Could be more to come if primed to fire returning from the break.

Well held in three handicaps late last year, including 13L defeat over this trip at Naas on yielding ground. Handicapper hasn't taken any major chances, will have to improve on his own steam in seasonal bow.

Betting

Forecast

Rock Sound (7/2), Bond Street (6/1), Caffe Macchiato (7/1), Band of Outlaws (8/1), Overcoming (8/1), Havana Go (10/1), Masucci (10/1), Medal Of Honour (12/1), Meagher's Flag (12/1), Natty Dresser (12/1), Raphael (14/1), Big Bad Sal (16/1), Spiorad Saoirse (16/1), Bella Figura (16/1), T For Tango (25/1)

Verdict

BOND STREET had some useful for last season behind top-notch stablemates form Ballydoyle and he got off the mark at Dundalk in a maiden this month. He has since chased home the unbeaten Hand On Heart over this trip at the Curragh, losing little caste in doing so. The better ground forecast should be a plus an he's the pick on form. Caffe Macchiato is also improving and should get involved while Rock Sound made a winning debut at Limerick and can likely improve on that. Band Of Outlaws may do better on this ground (behind Caffe Macchiato latest) while Havana Go is one to note in the betting ahead of his handicap debut.
