Best of 2018 efforts have come on the AW at Dundalk, including a win over 1m2½f in May off a mark of 65. Went close again there over 1m4f on Thursday off this rating. Cheekpieces added, has won on turf before.

Remains one from 18 on turf despite a number of consistent starts this term since May. Finished last in Listed contest at Roscommon over similar trip latest, capable of bouncing back in this company.

Looked better for the drop in trip in a Roscommon handicap on rattling fast ground over 1m4f last month and duly won well Ballinrobe (1m5f, good) next time, when given a soft lead. Raised 13lb for that success and unlikely to get things as easy.

Sole success came over 1m4f at Dundalk in November 2016. Finished third of five in handicap at Tipperary (1m1f, good to firm) last month on second start back. Likely needs this sort of trip to be at best and market support would be noteworthy.

Dual winner already this season including over 1m4f at The Curragh (good to firm) last month. Very good second of eight in 1m5f Leopardstown handicap three days ago from this mark, strong claims with a repeat here.

Not won on the Flat since landing a Tipperary handicap in April last year off a 1lb lower mark. Chase winner in February over 2m at Fairyhouse and good return to the Flat (second) at Ballinrobe (1m5f, good) last month. Can be involved.

7/4

High Chaparral filly, produced best of five career efforts when winning 11-runner handicap at Gowran Park (1m1½f, good) three weeks ago by 1L from Dawn Hoofer. Up 4lb, has scope to improve again.

Betting

Forecast

Birth Of Venus (7/4), Dawn Hoofer (2/1), Claregate Street (11/2), Bibliotheca (8/1), Dancing Doll (12/1), Nanabad (16/1), Head Turner (16/1)

Verdict

The Gowran Park meeting of BIRTH OF VENUS (first) and Dawn Hoofer (second) is perhaps key to this puzzle. The runner-up scored next time out at the Curragh and has run well from 8lb higher at Leopardstown this week. Jim Bolger's filly seems likely to run well again but the selection is meeting her on better terms this time and also looks likely to make further progress. Bibliotheca is unlikely to be afforded the sort of easy lead that contributed to victory last time, while Dancing Doll is worth noting in the betting over this longer trip in a contest where none can be discounted.
