Not won on the Flat since landing a Tipperary handicap in April last year off a 2lb lower mark. Went well at Ballinrobe last month on yielding ground before finishing fifth of 17 at the Galway festival earlier in the month.

Lightly-raced Nathaniel gelding, some promise shown in trio of maidens last term. Generally well held in two starts this term and others preferred here despite first-time tongue-tie.

One-time inmate of Sir Henry Cecil, this fellow is a battle-hardened character that is still capable at this level but has not won on turf for 12-months off a 19lb higher mark. Clearly regressing and best avoided.

Solid and consistent in three starts this season including a 1¾L defeat when last seen in June in a Fairyhouse 1m4f handicap on good ground. Has the form to make a bold bid in first-time cheekpieces.

Winner of two of his 13 starts on the Flat but losing run goes back to September 2016. Lack of racecourse appearances since has to be a concern.

Beaten favourite earlier in the month the second of two promising starts this season. Likable type who should be in the mix.

Hasn't achieved a lot to date and by no means a strong Ballydoyle sort, sports first-time cheekpieces and requires an improved effort.

Modest 59-rated handicapper on the Flat and well down the field in a couple maiden hurdles recently and hard to see him making any significant impact here.

Only previous win came in 2013, no suggestion in four runs last term that another success is looming somewhere on the horizon. Others preferred on return to the track.

17-race maiden who has not been seen since finishing fifth of nine on the beach at Laytown in September 2016 when in the care of Tom Cleary. Impossible to follow on stable debut.

Sent off at 100/1 on her last two starts in June. Likely to be shown to better effect with handicap experience.

Seven-race maiden without a win in three Flat starts on turf. Overall form does not warrant support in this company.

Vocalised filly is a sister to 1m1½f winner Vitalized out of an unraced dam. Has largely disappointed in six career starts to date.

Betting

Forecast

Runyon Rattler (3/1), Creative Talent (9/2), Head Turner (6/1), Papal Parade (10/1), Conquest (10/1), Archibald Thorburn (10/1), Volatile Lady (12/1), Capital Fund (14/1), Specific Gravity (14/1), Kelter's Dawn (14/1), Easkey Lad (16/1), Bomber Jackson (16/1), Coral Cluster (20/1), Pivot Bridge (20/1), Royal Alto (25/1), Johnny Carney (25/1)

Verdict

Last time out beaten favourite RUNYON RATTLER has a couple of solid spins on the level to his name this season and can follow up on a 1¼L in a 2m Clonmel handicap when last seen on the level in May by grabbing the win here. Aiden O'Brien's Conquest could be in the last chance saloon here so it may be advisable to be considering the likes of Creative Talent and Papal Parade for the minors.
