Hardly given any rest this year but looks to be thriving on his racing having already scored four times from 19 starts. Runner-up at Nottingham last month and no reason he won't be in the mix again.

Maiden after 17 starts and below par in three outings this term. Has placed off higher marks in the past and cheekpieces are back on here after trying a visor at this track last time in a poor run.

Runner-up at Hamilton this week over an extended-mile, giving best to a well-handicapped rival. Step up in distance no concern and likely has more to offer.

Eight-race maiden who has shown little so far including when well beaten on reappearance at Newcastle on the AW. Fitter now but needs to build on best form.

Lightly-raced maiden, unable to land any sort of blow on turf/handicap bow at Windsor last month (1m3½f, good to firm) and needs marked improvement.

Second run back from wind surgery when shedding maiden tag at Nottingham (1m½f, good to firm) last time. Allowed to dictate matters from the front and uncertain to get same treatment now.

Three runs this season have all come here, over a variety of trips, and have done nothing for confidence and can only be watched for now.

Twice a runner up over 7f on the AW at Newcastle in November, but no real promise in a trio of recent runs on turf (1m-1m1f), and hasn't won anywhere since July 2015.

Ran a career best when finishing fourth of 16 beaten 4¼L in a Gowran Park handicap in May, dangerous on that evidence but nowhere near as good since at Fairyhouse. Market check needed.

Betting

Forecast

Alabanza (11/10), Elapidae (13/2), Ravenhoe (7/1), Rosemay (8/1), Foxy Rebel (9/1), Let It Go Papa (12/1), Betty Grable (20/1), Stardrifter (28/1), Rioja Day (33/1)

Verdict

Ruth Carr's Nottingham winner Foxy Rebel was allowed to call the shots in front on that occasion and, while respected, isn't certain to be given such an easy time here. ALABANZA meanwhile found only a well-handicapped rival too strong at Hamilton earlier this week and should be capable of doing better still upped in trip. Ravenhoe remains busy and is racing well while Let It Go Papa would be a player if repeating his penultimate effort in Ireland.
