Has a comparably consistent record on turf as he does on the AW and, having dropped to handy mark, should not be underestimated despite top weight. The rider's 10lb claim could also be a big help but the gelding does need to up his game.

Hit with a 10lb hike after winning his penultimate start and was well held at Leopardstown last month. May prefer a bit more give underfoot than he'll encounter here is a further point deducted from his claims.

Has been cut some slack by the handicapper but this season's efforts still suggest the filly could do with a little more weight off her back before she can be truly considered as a well-handicapped contender. Others preferred this time.

Winner over 6f in France but his form took a dive towards the end of his time with his previous yard. Difficult to asses where he stands on his Irish handicap debut and probably best watched here.

A consistent type who has dropped several hints that his turn is near. Both starts this season have been fair performance but the drop to 6f remains a concern and is a possible chink in the armour.

A 6f winner as a juvenile and is now on a handy turf rating in comparison to her AW mark after winning at Dundalk (6f) back in January. Subsequent starts have been modest, however, and the filly comes here with something to prove.

Plummeted in the ratings and fully took advantage to win a weak race at Ayr earlier this month. Plenty to prove under an 8lb higher mark and in stiffer company but has ground conditions to suit and possible he still has more to offer on turf.

Very interesting pedigree and starts her handicap career off at a very reasonable level. Open to plenty of improvement and merits an interest in a very ordinary contest. Yard also being in great form an obvious boost.

Holding his own well and at present and justified joint-favouritism in a gritty manner last time out. As a previous C&D winner, he has to be respected and looks a leading contender if able to extend the run of good form.

Struggling to land a blow of late but very possible he'll appreciate this drop in trip. No forlorn hope of bouncing back and, with a solid jockey booking aiding the cause, the gelding rates as good value for a place in the frame at least.

Goes well here but recent form has been below his best and leaves the gelding with a bit to prove just now. The rider's claim helps at the weights but others look a tad more convincing.

Took a couple of outings to sharpen him up this term but seized the opportunity to win a moderate race at Gowran Park last month. Doesn't have too many miles on the clock but her previous form hardly suggests she's noted for consistency.

Well held in all four previous starts and did little to suggest the step into handicap company will be the making of him. Possible the drop in trip will suit but looks a risky proposition this time around.

Betting

Forecast

Alans Pride (5/2), Hasselnott (10/3), Geological (9/2), Back At Dawn (10/1), Clonville (11/1), Boragh Steps (12/1), Mr Shelby (14/1), Count Of Carabass (16/1), Art Nouvelle (16/1), Hatton Cross (25/1), Kodiac's Back (25/1), Mujaafy (50/1), Forza Libranno (50/1)

Verdict

The well-bred BACK AT DAWN appears to have been found a very weak race in which to make her handicap debut and may be worth changing this time around. The filly has much more scope than the others and appeals as the best of a moderate bunch. Count Of Carabassis in good form just now and doesn't have too much to find to get competitive once more, while Hatton Cross and Mr Shelby are forwarded as the best of the rest.
