18:40 Fairyhouse Fri 15 June 2018
Solid and consistent in three starts this season when not beaten far despite his finishing positions. Looks a progressive type and shortlisted here.
Distance winner on the AW at Dundalk but generally well beaten since switching to the turf last month and hard to fancy on latest evidence.
Placed on first three starts at two but well held since including twice for Rebecca Menzies and on stable debut at Sligo last month. Opposable in present form.
No impression and looked one-pace on seasonal bow in a Tipperary handicap over 5f last month before a 2L defeat in a bunch finish at Leopardstown earlier this month. Could be dangerous off this mark.
Kodiac filly, cost 40,000 gns as a foal and 52,000 gns as a yearling. Will have disappointed connections in three career starts since April with below-par performances on each occasion. Watching brief for now.
Beaten favourite on handicap debut finishing seventh of 18 beaten over 3L at Fairyhouse before winning a Leopardstown contest earlier this month. 9lb rise in the weights looks a little harsh and must be noted.
Poor form in a series of dismal performances since making her debut in April. Plenty more needed in this group.
Ran a promising race on return to the track finishing fifth of 16 beaten 2L in a Navan handicap. Worth a check in the betting on first start since being gelded and with first-time tongue-tie to assist.
Nothing of note in four dismal career starts since making here debut in September and on seasonal debut earlier this month when 11th of 15 at Leopardstown. Unlikely to play a role in the finish here in first time hood.
Has been left toiling in a number of starts since April including a seventh of 11 beaten over 12L in a Fairyhouse maiden last month. Easily resistible on current form.
Has looked over-whelmed in three career starts as a juvenile finishing 11th of 13 when last seen in September. Hard to pace any faith in.
Ran above expectations on seasonal debut in a Fairyhouse handicap last month finishing second of 18 over 7f. Disappointed generally last season so possible improvement from that run unlikely.
A €14,000 yearling this Society Rock gelding is a half-brother to winner up to 6½f Mal And Dave. Has looked a modest sort in three career starts last month and will need to raise overall performance to play a role here.
18-race maiden but glimmers of hope recently at Fairyhouse and Navan earlier this month. Place claims at best in this company.
Not much to shout about in five career starts, three on the AW at Dundalk and on seasonal debut at Fairyhouse last month and requires a chunk of improvement to play a role here.
