Fair fifth over this trip at Fairyhouse (good) last month but well beaten subsequently and others make more appeal in this contest.

Decent effort in finishing sixth at Roscommon (1m4f, soft) when last in action back in May. Returning from a break and unproven on the forecast going.

Victorious over 1m4f here on good-to-firm going in May. Decent third to an in form rival over 1m2f subsequently and one to note stepping up in trip.

Improving with racing this term and ran well to finish third in a 1m4f maiden at Gowran Park (good-to-firm) at the end of May. Given a break since and an interesting contender now switched to handicaps.

Returned to form with a ½L second over 1m4f at Fairyhouse (good-to-firm) earlier this month. Has run well over this trip in the past and is of interest on this occasion.

Beaten 9L into third in a 1m6f handicap at Bellewstown (good-to-firm) on her most recent outing. Decent fifth prior to that and has a top jockey on board here.

Betting

Forecast

For Pleasure (11/4), The Mouse Doctor (5/1), Subjudice (5/1), Ace Of Diamonds (5/1), Bit Of Banter (11/2), Black Label (8/1), Miraculum (10/1), Parisian (14/1), Remembered Joy (20/1)

Verdict

BIT OF BANTER can make a winning handicap debut by taking the concluding race on the card. The selection should appreciate the step up in trip and she can get the better of For Pleasure who was a winner here on his penultimate start. Third can go the way of Black Label who has run well over C&D in the past.
