49-12OR: 62C

Couldn't land any sort of blow in six starts for Mick Halford but she improved rapidly for this outfit, including a win here in May. Eased in class now and in the mix.

Won a Nottingham handicap for the Karl Burke yard last term but has been well held in all three starts for this firm and watching brief advised again.

Best of recent effort came when 4L third over 1m3f at Killarney (good) and not certain to relish this trip.

Gelded son of Showcasing sent off big prices and no impact in two starts in Britain for Andi Brown. No impact in two runs for current handler and might need softer ground.

Runner-up last time at Tipperary, didn't have a lot of luck in that race and could well give this a big push if Robbie Downey can get him into a handy position.

Yet to win in 12 starts and her better efforts have come on softer ground than what she will get here. Hard to make case for.

Showed enough in trip of maidens last year to suggest a market check would be needed here on return to action / handicap bow.

Brushed aside in two 6f handicaps since joining this trainer, stays this trip and starting to look well handicapped. Interesting contender.

By Approve out of a Black Sam Bellamy mare related to Waady, El Astonaute. Better effort last time at Navan over 1m2f on good to firm, could find the frame here.

Turf form improved for a drop in trip when finishing fourth of 13 beaten 2L in a 1m handicap here last month, since gone well over C&D under prominent ride and one to consider.

Now a 16-race maiden and promising signs have long since evaporated. Hard to put any sort of faith for the moment.

No win since 2015, though did finish second here in May, poor effort last time at Naas but if a win is to materialise again, likely it would be here.

Ten-raced maiden in both codes, has been toiling recently over timber and doesn't make any great appeal back on the Flat, plenty improvement to find.

Now 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 starts this season including only beating one home in a Tipperary 17-runner handicap in June on good to firm ground. Hard to fancy.

48-9OR: 45

Big prices and wide-margin defeats in four starts so far in maiden/claiming company. Lots to find if hoping for a different outcome now tackling a handicap.

48-9OR: 45

Nothing to be positive about in six starts last year, returned to action with tailed off effort over 7f at Dundalk on the AW in May. Runs beyond a mile for the first time. Hard to see a challenge coming.

Betting

Forecast

Royal Admiral (6/4), Galtymore (11/2), Pedisnap (7/1), Vitalized (15/2), Lizard Point (10/1), Lady De Vesci (10/1), Ask Katie (12/1), Hawthorn Echo (20/1), Mujaafy (22/1), Song Cito (22/1), Binary Code (25/1), Broughtons Sport (28/1), Teomaria (28/1), Molten Gold (33/1), Woodcarver (33/1), Wicket (33/1), Myra Awnya (40/1)

Verdict

ROYAL ADMIRAL was well backed last time at Tipperary and might well have rewarded his supporters had he got away better. He finished to good effect however and well and truly advertised his claims of going in off the same mark now. If Robbie Downey can chart a decent course, compensation awaits. This trip should be much more suitable to Binary Code, who find himself on a workable mark and is noted, while Pedisnap has sights lowered a bit here and joins Lizzard Point in completing the shortlist.
