Lightly raced and well beaten on two career starts when last seen in late 2016. Hard to fancy on comeback run.

Standout effort when third of 8 to Soffia in C&D maiden in June, and possibly found the run coming too soon when below that form next time. Tongue tied now, and likely to get back on track.

Brother to useful 6f winner Speedfiend and half-brother to useful 5f-7f winner Dougan, but he didn't show a great deal on debut at Galway 12 days ago. Gelded since, and this comes soon enough.

Well held on first two starts, but much improved in this headgear when 3¾L third of 9 to Amthaal in 5f maiden at Bellewstown last time, keeping on well. Stiffer track will suit, and one to consider.

Showed ability in maidens as a juvenile, but well held in two runs since returning from absence in July, and makes little appeal once more.

By Bated Breath out of a 6f 2-y-o winner. Finished last on debut at Dundalk in October, and while that was a listed contest, she's not easy to fancy after a longish absence.

Best effort to date when a staying-on third in a heavy-ground maiden at Naas in March, but failed to build on that next time, and drop to 5f on faster ground not certain to suit here.

Sir Prancealot filly who cost just €2,000 as a yearling despite being a half-sister to winners. Probably best watched on belated debut, for all this isn't a strong race for the track.

Thrice-raced filly who put up her best effort when 6L third of 11 to National Glory in maiden at Naas (6f) last time. Needs to take another step forward now, but drop in trip not ideal.

Well held in a trio of qualifying runs, and has failed to improve in a couple of handicaps. Tongue tie replaces hood she wore last time, but no reason to expect her to figure.

Ran very well in cheekpieces when second at Navan in October, but that remains a standout on her record, and failed to fire in a tongue tie at Galway (7f) last time. Patience wearing thin.

Dam won over 5f, but this Choisir filly cost just €1,300 as a foal, and showed nothing on her debut at Naas in March.

Cost 110,000 gns, and hinted at ability on her debut at Leopardstown a year ago; not delivered on that mild promise in two subsequent starts, and looks one for handicaps in time.

Hasn't shown much in three maidens to date, merely passing tiring rivals when eighth of 14 at Naas last time. Tongue tie reached for now.

Bred for speed and has hinted at ability in a couple of runs to date. Probably needed the outing on belated return at Naas last month, but any improvement likely to come when handicapping.

Betting

Forecast

Ajmera (13/8), Hot Stone (7/2), Run The Day (8/1), Astrospeed (9/1), Optionality (12/1), Miss Margarita (14/1), Stellaire Enfant (14/1), Elegant Lass (16/1), Bonnie Park (25/1), Bahlwan (25/1), Al Batal (33/1), Noirvento (33/1), Amaretto Stone (33/1), Gala N Dandy (33/1), Lake Moraine (100/1)

Verdict

With form pick Ajmera coming back from a break and dropping in trip, this is probably best left to Bellewstown third RUN THE DAY, who will be seen to better effect at this stiff track. Astrospeed looks best of the rest in a race which lacks depth.
