Tested the patience of trainer Dermot Weld who failed to find the key in four career starts for the lightly raced five-year-old. Worth a note in the betting on stable debut in first-time tongue-tie.

Possibly needed the run on first start since January in a Leopardstown handicap over 1m2f on good to firm ground last month. Hard to place any faith in.

Not disgraced in a number of spins on the AW at Dundalk over the winter/spring but was found wanting Flat turf debut when a well beaten 20th of 23 in a Leopardstown handicap over 1m5f last month. Hard to make a case for here.

Solid and consistent in his last four starts including finishing fourth of 16 at Gowran Park before finishing second of 12 beaten 2¾L in a Fairyhouse handicap on good to firm last month. Place claims on current mark.

Six-race maiden on turf and continued to disapoint last month at Fairyhouse when well beaten 12L finishing 7th of 10 on good to firm ground over 1m2f. Will need to improve to figure.

Needs to recapture the form of spring 2017 though possibly needed the run on return to the track when finishing 11th of 18 as beaten favourite in a Cork handicap last month. First time cheekpieces could be of assistance.

Multiple winner over this trip who acts on the ground. Plenty to like about her return to turf when finishing seventh of 12 beaten over 4L in a Fairyhouse last month. Place claims on current mark.

Winner of his last two starts on the AW at Dundalk the latest coming last month over this trip. Acts on the ground and worth noting in the betting.

Filed to win again in five starts since landing a Navan handicap off a 3lb lower mark last September. Looks in need of some assistance from the handicapper.

Popular dual-purpose veteran whose last three starts on the Flat have come on turf, beach and AW at Dundalk. Well beaten in three chase spins last month and plenty needed here on return to the level.

Beaten favourite last month on a British raid in an Ayr handicap on good to firm over 7f subsequently beaten 4½L finishing 8th of 11. Better than that run and worth a market check here.

Travelling well until the final furlong on seasonal debut in April at Navan over 1m3f eventually finishing fourth of 10 before disappointing once more at Clonmel last month. May struggle here once again.

Forecast

Schoolboy Error (9/2), Time For Mabel (9/2), Pari Passu (6/1), Mademoiselle Penny (7/1), Happy Company (7/1), Ace Of Diamonds (7/1), Look Closer (10/1), Dream Sleep (10/1), Shadagann (10/1), Clementina (12/1), Bibliotheca (16/1), Usa (16/1), Newcross (20/1), Vienna Circle (20/1), Match My Fire (20/1), Poitin (28/1), Duke Of Waspington (33/1), Rise Again (33/1), Divin Desir (33/1)

Verdict

ACE OF DIAMONDS has dropped to 3lb lower than his last winning mark and can land the spoils here in the closing contest following up on two solid runs last month. Pari Passu has been running well in defeat in May and can be certainly make his presence felt once again here with last time out beaten favourites Newcross and Shadagann who can go well at a price.
