Off the mark at the third time of asking when winning over 1m2f at Clonmel (heavy) earlier this month. One to note on handicap debut.

Finished third over 1m2f at Roscommon (heavy) earlier this month but proved a disappointment dropping in trip subsequently. Interesting to see if he can repeat that Roscommon effort here.

Fair sixth on debut last September but well held twice subsequently. Market support would be interesting stepping up in trip on handicap and seasonal debut.

Placed over 6f on debut and fair efforts in three subsequent starts at two. Disappointing in two outings this term and more needed in this contest.

Finished 4L second at Naas (7f, soft) in first time cheekpieces (absent here) on final start at two. Well held in blinkers and tongue tie (both left off for this) on seasonal debut recently.

Broke his maiden over an extended 1m at Cork (heavy) on last months seasonal debut. Struggled off this 6lb higher mark subsequently however.

Made a winning handicap debut over an extended 1m3f at Limerick (soft-to-heavy) last time out. Raised 3lb for that victory and this drop in trip isn't certain to suit.

Beaten 2L into sixth on handicap debut over 1m at Dundalk earlier this month and ran respectably on his first try over 1m2f subsequently. More needed here however.

Finished fourth on both starts since joining this yard including on good ground over 1m2f at Cork last time out. Interesting to see how she fares in this contest.

Betting

Forecast

A Smooth Criminal (11/4), Roses Queen (4/1), Flindt (9/2), Sunnyhill Lad (9/2), Dream Point (5/1), Cacique Royale (10/1), Marmalade N Toast (10/1), Dawn Hoofer (14/1), Wichita Line (14/1), Zeb City (20/1), Eos (20/1), Flamin Audi (50/1)

Verdict

A SMOOTH CRIMINAL broke his maiden last time out and he can make a winning handicap debut by defying top weight in this three-year-old contest. The selection shaped as if he'd appreciate the slight step up in distance and he can take this at the chief expense of Dream Point who is making her turf debut here having placed on the AW last time out. Roses Queen has run well on both starts so far this season and she is taken to finish third.
  1. A Smooth Criminal
  2. Dream Point
  3. Roses Queen
