Winner of a Clonmel handicap over 1m2f last month off a 3lb lower mark. Well down the field on two occasions since when stepped up in trip. Worthy of consideration back at 10f.

Failed to win again in six starts since landing a Navan handicap off a 3lb lower mark last September. Not disgraced on recent starts and capable of a big run in current form.

Beaten but not disgraced in three starts over 7f/1m since April and the four race turf maiden could do with a change of luck.

Modest 65-rated handicapper for the late Sir Henry Cecil six years ago whose last win on turf came in a Gowran Park handicap in August 2016 off a similar mark to today's. Place claims on best form.

Acts on the ground but largely dismal record since since running well in a Down Royal handicap in September. May find this a tough assignment.

No impression and well held in two seasonal starts at Navan and over this trip at Cork last month. Will need to improve to figure.

Was a disappointing beaten favourite last month in a Leopardstown 1m4f handicap following a first career win at the sixth time of asking over C&D. Tough ask given his new mark.

Nothing of note in three disconcerting career starts last month including when finishing down the field in a Fairyhouse maiden over this trip. Tough ask and others preferred.

Not much to shout about in four starts over a variety of distances since February on both the AW at Dundalk and on two turf starts at Cork. May struggle on these terms.

Well held and no impression in three career starts on the Flat. Requires a chunk of improvement to land a blow here.

Struggled in three starts in maiden company before a grim display on handicap debut at Leopardstown last month finishing seventh of 10 beaten over 8L over 1m4f. Very little to be positive about.

Well held and never nearer in four career starts including a 9L defeat on handicap debut at Gowran Park last month. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.

First Reserve: Mastercraftsman filly remains without a win after 16 attempts. Placed on the ground and over this trip, could be worthy of a market check.

Betting

Forecast

Flindt (7/2), Happy Company (4/1), Greenpanda (11/2), King Christophe (13/2), Stormy Air (7/1), Easkey Lad (8/1), Ojinjintka (10/1), Duchess Ravenwaves (14/1), Bo Bridget (14/1), Volatile Lady (16/1), Itschessnotchekers (16/1), Dark Amber (16/1), Survival Mode (25/1), Mel Biechif Diane (25/1), Romantic (33/1), Mills On Tour (33/1), Goodbye Oonagh (40/1)

Verdict

Despite his finishing positions HAPPY COMPANY has been running well in recent starts and has proved capable of a big run over this trip and has plenty in his favour here. Flindt and Stormy Air who have both been solid and consistent in each of their last three starts can grab a place in a contest that won't take a great deal of improvement to win.
