Career-best when winning 11-runner claimer at Dundalk (1m, AW) six days ago, staying on well. Carries penalty and faces tougher task back on turf.

Improved for the fitting of blinkers at Tipperary last week. Staying on well and shaping like this extra yardage may help.

Fair efforts on last two starts and handicap mark is fair. Needs a second glance if taking part (Engaged at Cork on Tuesday).

Lightly-raced and took advantage of lenient opening handicap mark to score at Naas this month, holding off Eos in second spot, should have more to offer.

Showed little in three maidens last term for Johnny Murtagh and his relocated over the winter, likely to struggle on handicap debut for new handler unless improving dramatically.

Improved over 1m2½f in a Sligo handicap when fourth of 13 beaten 6L on yielding ground last month. More needed on return to the track.

Usually seen on the AW at Dundalk but has run well the last three times on Turf on better ground. Has each-way claims on that recent evidence.

Lightly-raced maiden. Sent off 66/1 and finished last of six in minor event at Limerick 32 days ago over similar trip on good ground. Has plenty improvement to find.

Three poor runs in maidens. Starts life in handicap company off a lowly mark but needs a good jolt of improvement to be involved.

Beaten a very long way on handicap debut over a mile at Naas last month, since finished 9½L seventh of 11 behind Power Drive upped to 1m2f at the same track. Hard to be confident.

Betting

Forecast

Cache Queen (5/2), Eos (7/2), Power Drive (4/1), Greengage (13/2), Conquest (8/1), Survival Mode (10/1), So Enjoy (12/1), Mooborak (16/1), Havingagoodtime (20/1), Kilcoran (25/1), Sovereigns Rock (40/1)

Verdict

Eos was good winner of a claimer on the sand at Dundalk last week and will come here in good heart but she was previously beaten by POWER DRIVE at Naas. Charles O'Brien's runner was starting in a handicap for the first time there and has plenty scope for further improvement. So Enjoy is likely to relish the longer trip here and joins Cache Queen, in decent form of late on turf, in rounding out the shortlist.
  1. Power Drive
  2. So Enjoy
  3. Cache Queen
