Raised 12lb for an impressive win over C&D last month. Likely to be a leading player here but consistency isn't one of her strong points.

Six race maiden on the Flat and first time tongue-tie doubtful to bring about the required amount of progress needed to play a role here.

Winner at last year's Galway Festival but that's his only win in 25 starts on the level and is only just coming back down to a winning mark. Plenty to prove at present.

Beaten favourite on most recent start in a 1m½f handicap on soft ground, the second of two starts at the Galway festival when beaten 7½L by Dani's Boy. Back up in trip sure to suit.

Third of 10 beaten 3¾l in a Killarney 1m3f handicap last month and likely to appreciate a further step up in trip but remains a seven-race maiden on the Flat.

Six race maiden in turf starts on the Flat and not seen since finishing 10th of 14 in a Dundalk 1m4f handicap in September last year. Will need to raise overall performance to play a role here.

Winner of a Tipperary 1m4½f handicap on soft ground in May off a 4lb lower mark. Beaten over hurdles at the Galway festival since but could be of each way interest with conditions to suit.

Eye-catching third of 15 when staying on in a Limerick handicap on good to firm over 1m3½f in June before disappointing in a couple of below-par runs last month. Out of sorts recently and this looks a tough ask in first-time blinkers.

Useful 118-rated hurdler not seen on the Flat since July 2016. Improving form over timber since puts him in the mix here and could be on a handy mark.

Winner over hurdles at the fifth time of asking in a 2m Limerick handicap last month but remains without a win in eight starts on the Flat. Each way claims given current hurdling form.

Noe racing 3lb below her last winning mark which came in a 7f Fairyhouse handicap in October. Well held since in eight starts on turf and hard to place any faith in here.

Not much to shout about in three dismal display on the Flat since May including a 17L defeat at Naas when last seen in June. May find it tough going here.

Betting

Forecast

Solar Heat (9/4), Randalls Ur Poet (9/2), Greengage (5/1), Magic Sea (10/1), Dixie Highway (12/1), Ask Katie (12/1), Beat Of The Sea (12/1), Maid In Manhattan (14/1), Alfred Wegener (14/1), Emily Square (14/1), Greanta (14/1), Lady Magdala (16/1), Sir Popple (16/1), Athenry Boy (20/1), Torthai An Ghra (20/1), U S Navy Seal (25/1), Paddytheirishman (50/1)

Verdict

Although up 12lb for her efforts the manner of SOLAR HEAT's win over C&D last month sets the standard in the closing race of the meeting here. The revitalised mare can see of the attentions of her closest rivals Greengage and Alfred Wegener, while improving hurdler Randalls Ur Poet can hit the frame.
