Fair fourth behind Rashaan on seasonal debut at Clonmel (2m, heavy) last month. Slightly disappointing subsequently and work to do to reverse form with that rival.

Struggled in two starts so far this term. Wears a tongue tie for the first time and races off a mark 7lb lower than for his latest success.

Decent effort when fourth on the AW over this trip in January but well held in first time cheekpieces (absent here) over 1m4f at Dundalk subsequently. Returning from a break and racing from out of the handicap..

Failed to complete on final two starts over fences in the autumn and well beaten in a handicap hurdle at Wexford last month. Probably best watched from out of the handicap on Flat return.

Ran well to finish 1L third over 1m5f at Navan (good-to-firm) earlier this month. Shapes as if this step up in trip may suit and he is one for the shortlist despite racing from out of the handicap.

Beaten just 1L when finishing runner-up over 2m1f at Killarney (soft) last month. Fair ninth dropping in trip subsequently and best form has come on ground softer than forecast. Races from out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Rashaan (9/4), Aydoun (5/2), Nelson Road (11/2), Jan Van Eyck (13/2), The Graduate (10/1), All Body And Soul (10/1), Weather Watch (20/1), Micras (25/1)

Verdict

JAN VAN EYCK ran well on his return from a short break last time and he can register his fifth win on turf on just his second attempt at this trip. Impressive Clonmel winner Rashaan is taken to claim second ahead of Aydoun who finished fourth in that Clonmel contest.
