Winner of two races and runner-up in a further five including a valuable prize last time. Blinkers on here but drop back to 6f is not guaranteed to help.

39-9OR: 83D
Winner of a 6f novice event at Wolverhampton (AW) in December and followed with a fine race in Naas Listed event (5½f, good to yielding). Eased in a valuable race last month when conditions were heavy and has a chance to bounce back.

All out to open her account at Fairyhouse and the runner-up has franked the form. Blinkers clearly helped and need to have a similar effect again.

39-6OR: 80D
Has only gone up 3lb for finishing amongst higher rated horses over 7f here two weeks ago. Equally effective over 6f and cannot be dismissed on that form.

39-4OR: 78
Better last time in cheekpieces and on quicker ground. Yet to prove his effectiveness at this trip, but on a handy mark if he does.

38-13OR: 73D
Shock Dundalk winner in September who has done little since. Blinkers tried this time and others have stronger claims.

38-10OR: 70D
Clearly the pick of the weights given his latest display which means he goes up 3lb next time. However, he is a difficult ride who needs things to his way and he cannot be relied upon to step up this time.

Betting

Forecast

Elegant Drama (5/2), War Hero (10/3), It's All A Joke (10/3), Gottardo (11/2), Hello Brigette (9/1), Highly Approved (12/1), Cristale (22/1)

Verdict

Blinkers assisted Elegant Drama last time and connections will be hoping they work on War Hero. It's All A Joke is difficult to catch right, although well-handicapped this time, and the vote goes to HIGHLY APPROVED. She has a more consistent profile and only needs to run to her current standard to be hard to beat.
  1. Highly Approved
