Victorious twice in autumn 2016 and signs that further success may not be far away when finishing fifth over 1m at Gowran Park (soft-to-heavy) earlier this month.

Well held on four outings at Dundalk since joining this yard. Handicap mark is falling as a result and market support would be interesting in this contest.

Fair fifth at Navan (yielding-to-soft) on seasonal debut last month but struggled at Cork (soft-to-heavy) subsequently and others make more appeal.

Successful over 7f at Naas (yielding) in June last year but disappointing since. Well handicapped as a result and races off a mark 6lb lower than for that Naas victory.

Put a number of disappointing efforts behind him when finishing runner-up dropping to this trip in a heavy ground 30 runner contest at The Curragh last time out. Repeat of that should see him figure in the finish.

Placed over 7f at Laytown last September and some fair efforts since. Worth a check in the market from 1lb out of the weights racing off a mark 8lb lower than for his latest success with a top jockey booked to ride.

Betting

Forecast

Aspen Belle (3/1), Keep Believing (10/3), Thiswaycadeaux (5/1), Waitaki (8/1), Gentil J (10/1), Truffles (10/1), Geological (12/1), Count Of Carabass (14/1), Fastidious (16/1), Enzani (16/1), Landline (25/1), The Mcgregornator (25/1), Lyfka (25/1), Botanical Lady (25/1), Full Disclosure (33/1), Timia (50/1)

Verdict

ASPEN BELLE has been in good form so far this spring and she can defy a career high mark to follow-up her Cork victory earlier this month. The selection has has the ground to suit here and having won over this trip in the past she is taken to get the better of Keep Believing who finished runner-up in a highly competitive contest at The Curragh last time. Thiswaycadeaux finished third in the aforementioned race at The Curragh and he can fill the same position in this.
  1. Aspen Belle
  2. Keep Believing
  3. Thiswaycadeaux
