Did well to win on final start of Andrew balding but not so eye-catching on debut for his current yard at Gowran Park two weeks ago. Has something to prove now and faces a stiff test on these terms.

A winner on the AW at Dundalk in January but has looked to be in the handicapper's grip ever since. Latest start (over 1m at The Curragh) left a lot to be desired. Others preferred.

Holding his form well - gaining a deserved success at Leopardstown at the start of this month before going close under a 6lb penalty at Roscommon last week. Up a further 2lb but still respected in this company and merits a place on the shortlist.

Cost 50,000 gns as a yearling and did manage to win a maiden at Roscommon last summer. Handicap form not so inspiring and this season's two runs need to be signig=ficantly bettered here.

Losing sequence is starting to mount up and looks a risky option despite posting one of his better performances at Leopardstown last time out. (Still no better than mid-division and improvement needed.)

Set to race from 2lb below last winning mark and very feasible he needed the run despite being well backed on his reappearance last time out. Has the ability to go close and is one to monitor closely.

Endured training problems and only lightly raced in recent times. Signs of a revival last time out at Gowran park but still needs to up his game a good deal to get competitive here.

Won a maiden on the AW at Wolverhampton when trained in the UK last year but not yet caught the imagination since joining his current yard. A lot needs to be taken on trust on this return to racing on the Flat.

Best form so far has been on the AW at Dundalk and looks high enough in the weights for this first crack at racing on turf since last winter. Others more appealing.

Well handicapped on the pick of his old form but has a bit to prove over this trip, which may well be on the sharp side for him these days.

Gone well at this course in the past and arrives in good heart after winning at Roscommon earlier in the week. Obvious claims under 4lb higher but suited by stepping up in trip and could be a big player if the run doesn't come around too soon.

Becoming hard to win with and looks one for the brave only despite him being on a handy mark. Place claims at best.

Thriving on being kept busy - chases her third win from four starts but is up 7lb since last time and now faces a bit of an acid test. However, the manner of her latest win was impressive and the filly has to merit an interest in this company.

Steadily getting the hang of things on turf; her latest start created the impression she has a race within her at some point. Unexposed at the trip and well worth a betting check for each-way punters.

A winner on the AW at Dundalk last month but well held both starts back on turf since. Has a bit to prove after failing to make an impact last time out.

Has place claims on the pick of his form but hasn't been so effective since switching back to turf and now has a bit to prove. Still a maiden and is yet to reach the frame from four previous starts on turf raises cause for concern.

Betting

Forecast

Pedisnap (3/1), Dance Alone (9/2), High Altitude (7/1), Fox Dream (10/1), Greengage (10/1), Masalai (12/1), Khabaray (12/1), Queen Rabab (14/1), Pushaq (16/1), Giorni Felice (16/1), Ask Katie (16/1), Noble Intention (20/1), The Phantom Punch (20/1), Ragtime Red (25/1), Stepney (25/1), Talk Now (25/1), Tennesse Waltz (25/1), Alhajjaj (33/1), King Torus (33/1)

Verdict

There may be a bit more to come from PENDISNAP, who has hot form with a vengeance just at the right time and looks handily enough weighted to exploit any weaknesses from the rest. Fox Dream is another that has a solid recent profile and looks a viable alternative, while Khabaray and Greengage also have sound claims of at least making the frame in this company.
