Promising reappearance was not far behind his best juvenile performance. Interesting now handicapping with good apprentice on board and cheekpieces to assist.

Rarely beaten too far but tends to finish in the pack and this trip poses a problem having failed to stay 7f previously.

Has gone well here twice this season and cheekpieces provoked an improved display two weeks ago. Looks one of the principal players.

Some ability in three AW maidens but opening handicap mark is demanding. May need the run with the yard going through a quiet spell.

Just one win from eight starts when a winner on heavy ground in cheekpieces at Fairyhouse (6f) last year. Not as effective over 1m4f on quicker ground for last two runs and rain needed to help slow some of these down.

Has run well enough on his last four starts to go on the shortlist assuming he runs to the same level again.

Originally cost 70,000 gns at the breeze-ups and showed her first glimpse of ability last time when running well to this distance at Roscommon.

In good form last month and landed a 7f Sligo contest. Well-held in two runs since off his current mark.

Travels strongly in his races but looks the type who needs to be delivered as late as possible. Best effort came at Dundalk and he has not appeared to get 1m2f on turf since. Interesting down to a mile but that may counter his cruising speed.

Held by Hey Pretty judged on her Fairyhouse return and task made harder from 7lb out of the weights.

Has looked one paced so far and he faces a stern test from a mark 8lb out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Hey Pretty (3/1), Rince Deireanach (9/2), Danehill Quest (6/1), Point Zero (13/2), Golden Footsteps (10/1), Chaparral Dream (11/1), Villa Maria (11/1), So Enjoy (12/1), Dancing Lady (14/1), Stormy Tale (16/1), Groovy Jazz (16/1), Bonnington Lass (16/1)

Verdict

SO ENJOY has already produced two big runs here and cheekpieces helped her to an improved effort last time. That leaves her looking well-handicapped and she is just preferred ahead of Hey Pretty who looks more straightforward than most in this. If running to current levels he will be in the mix, whilst Point Zero looks interesting on his handicap bow.
