Winner over 5½f in a Navan handicap in April before finding a 5lb penalty at the Curragh too much last month when beaten over 6L finishing 11th of 13. Plenty to prove off top weight here.

Course winner that has also won over this trip and was a winner last time out in a Listowel handicap over 6½f earlier this month. Enters calculations again off a 5lb higher mark.

80-rated Flat handicapper for David Simcock before two shocking hurdle displays for new connections last month. Seventh of 13 beaten over 6L on return to the level last time out and plenty to prove here.

Course winner who has also won over the distance but failed to build on a pleasing seasonal debut at Leopardstown when finishing eighth of 12 in a disappointing 14L defeat at the Curragh last month over 1m. Worth a market check.

Distance winner who was well beaten on seasonal debut in a Leopardstown handicap over this trip last month when 10th of 16. Now 4lb lower than last winning mark but will have to improve here.

Third of 18 in this race 12 months ago and distance winner of Gowran Park handicap on good to firm ground beaten 13 rivals by ½L last month. Raised 6lb for that win and entitled to make the shortlist here.

Ran well to finish sixth of 18 beaten 2L behind the likable Dance Alone earlier this month at Leopardstown. Could be of interest given his last two promising starts.

Distance winner of a Gowran Park handicap this time last year. Generally well beaten since over a variety of trips. Has the form over 7f to make a bold bid now 7lb lower than last winning mark.

Tough and genuine on the AW at Dundalk over the winter and put a disappointing return to the turf behind her when finishing second of 27 beaten a nose in a Curragh handicap earlier this month. Likable type who should be in the mix.

87-rated handicapper on the Flat for William Haggas last term but has failed to beat a rival home in two starts for new connections. Out of sorts and this looks a tough ask.

Winner on the AW at Dundalk but well beaten on three starts on turf to date and first time tongue-tie unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Sole success in 17 attempts came in AW maiden at Dundalk over 6f in December 2016. Ran well to finish third of 13 beaten 1¾L in a Gowran Park handicap earlier this month. Eighth of 18 in this race 12 months ago and liable to find a couple stronger.

Betting

Forecast

Fit For Function (9/2), Ice Cold In Alex (7/1), Flawlessly (7/1), Wexford Opera (8/1), Mokhalad (8/1), Arbourfield (8/1), Waitaki (10/1), Ducky Mallon (10/1), Nothing To Lose (12/1), Coreczka (16/1), Luna's Luck (25/1), Ahlan Bil Zain (25/1), Smart Stinger (25/1), Gougane Barra (33/1), Lapilli (33/1)

Verdict

ARBOURFIELD (third of 18 in this contest 12 months ago) can build on his ½L win over the likable Dance Alone in a Gowran Park handicap over this trip last month and can take advantage of the 6lb he receives from fellow last time out winner Fit For Function who landed a Listowel handicap earlier this month. Wexford Opera from the inform Jim Bolger stable deserves a second look while Flawlessly and Ice Cold In Alex should not be underestimated.
