610-0OR: 64CD
C&D winner on her third career start in April 2014 and remains her sole turf win in 15 starts. Liable to find a couple stronger here.

59-11OR: 61BFCD
Course winner that has won over the trip and was beaten favourite last time out in a Navan 5f handicap on good to firm ground when disappointing earlier this month. Plenty to find on recent offerings.

89-10OR: 60BF
Beaten favourite last time out on a British raid in an Ayr 6f handicap finishing third of nine 1¾L behind the winner Fintry Flyer last month. Could be interesting back on a winning mark.

49-9OR: 59D
Well beaten in all three starts this season and first time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

79-8OR: 58D
Well held in a couple of runs over this trip recently off her current mark and will need plenty of luck in running to land a blow here.

49-5OR: 55D
Gained only success from 13 starts over this trip on the AW at Dundalk in March, poor back there since and doesn't make obvious appeal returned to turf.

39-4OR: 60
Successful off a 5lb lower mark over 6f at Dundalk in February. Well held since and has work to do based on current form.

Won a Curragh maiden back in September 2015 over this trip but has looked to have lost her way since. Others preferred.

39-2OR: 58
Well beaten on all her five starts and showed nothing in a handicap last time out. Likely to need some relief from the assessor before becoming of interest.

49-0OR: 50D
Successful twice in sprints last autumn but below par end to the season and well held in two starts last month. Looks vulnerable in this company.

58-13OR: 49
Won a 6f handicap in December on the AW at Dundalk but has failed to build on that win when running on turf including finishing last of 28 at the Curragh last month over this trip.

68-12OR: 48
Will possibly come on for his seasonal debut when finishing eighth of 27 beaten 7L in a Curragh handicap over 6½f earlier this month. Plenty to work on running at this distance for the first time.

58-12OR: 48
Still a maiden after 11 starts but produced career best efforts yet at Cork and Gowran Park last month but drop to this trip is a major concern.

58-11OR: 47
Missed much of 2016 and had just three starts for this yard last year. Ninth of 11 beaten over 14L on return to the track in a Navan handicap over 1m. Best watched on first 5f start.

Distance winner of a Lingfield maiden when in the hands of trainer-Tony Carroll, his sole win in 24 career starts. Looks opposable.

58-9OR: 45
Well beaten on each of his first 11 starts but produced a better efforts behind Gopsies Daughter at Navan and Bellick at the same track earlier this month and will look to continue improvement here.

88-9OR: 45CD
Course winner who has also won over the trip. Last win came on the sand at Laytown in September and is now racing off 34lb lower than his last winning mark. Hard to fancy despite recent promising runs.

58-9OR: 45D
Well held in two starts on the ground and losing run dates back to July 2016 when winning a Tipperary maiden over this trip. Looks up against it here.

Betting

Forecast

Kings Of Luxor (5/1), Lily's Prince (13/2), Rimshot (7/1), Coto (15/2), Clebourne (15/2), Sweetest Taboo (8/1), Haqeeba (10/1), Jenniechild (10/1), Blastofmagic (10/1), Red All Star (12/1), Approbare (12/1), Very Smart (16/1), Landline (18/1), Ahundrednotout (20/1), Sarah Ash Calum (25/1), Chosen Rock (33/1), Hot Stuff (33/1), Logarithm (33/1)

Verdict

LILY'S PRINCE can build on two solid starts at Cork and Ayr last month to land the Apprentice handicap under talented pilot Dylan Hogan, to take advantage of an attractive current handicap mark. Kings Of Luxor has been persistent since returning to the track this month and can hit the frame along with C&D winner Coto. Sarah Ash Calum and Landline are worthy of consideration at big prices.
