Bated Breath colt who looked a nice prospect when winning 7f Dundalk maiden on racecourse bow, but failed to settle when 14¼ lengths last of 5 to London Icon in minor event at Navan next time. May well do better.

Tongue-tied since debut, and built on promise of a couple of AW runs when narrowly winning a C&D maiden on latest start. Looks sure to do better still, and opening mark not insurmountable.

Has improved since going into handicaps this term, winning two from three, most recently at Roscommon on Tuesday. Penalty makes life harder, but can't be ignored in current mood.

Winner of a Galway maiden last term, and back to best when 3¾ lengths third of 8 to Caffe Macchiato in handicap at Navan last time under this rider. Needs to build on that to defy current mark.

€200,000 son of Invincible Spirit who built on earlier promise when winning a 7f maiden at Gowran late last month. Return to further will suit, and looks on a handy mark starting out in handicaps.

Cosy winner of a 7f Dundalk handicap in January, but he hasn't built on that win in a couple of outings since, and looks stable's second string on balance. Blinkers worn last time are left off.

Placed twice in Dundalk maidens last autumn, and not disgraced on handicap debut at the Curragh on latest start, short of room at a vital stage. Outside claims if building on that.

Showed some ability in maidens last season, but failed to fire on handicap bow/return at Navan recently. May have needed that, but much more required.

Bred in the purple, and placed at Lingfield for Roger Varian in November. Not gone on from that, however, including in two runs for current yard, tending to race freely.

Betting

Forecast

Rapture's Delight (5/2), Dream Of Words (10/3), Bucky Larson (5/1), Insignia Of Rank (5/1), Spiorad Saoirse (8/1), Editorial (9/1), Palace Guard (16/1), Alpine Peak (50/1), Our Legend (50/1)

Verdict

RAPTURE'S DELIGHT won despite finding the drop to seven furlongs against him last time, and he looks to have been given a chance by the handicapper, so gets the nod over another handicap debutant in the shape of Bucky Larson. Dream of Words carries a penalty for winning at Roscommon on Tuesday, and can't be ignored as she bids to make it three wins from her last starts.
  1. Rapture's Delight
  2. Bucky Larson
  3. Dream Of Words
