Placed on debut at Ballinrobe (1m2f, good) in July last year. Disappointing in the main since and others make more appeal.

Career best effort when finishing runner-up over 1m at Dundalk in February. Stepping back up in trip and interesting to see how she fares back in handicap company following a break.

Not beaten far when fifth at Cork (1m2f, good) on his most recent Flat outing in May. Held over hurdles twice since but worth a check in the market.

18 race maiden has placed on his last two starts in this sphere. Beaten 4¼L over an extended 1m4f at Sligo (good) recently and is of interest once more.

Placed in a 1m4f handicap at Gowran Park (good-to-firm) in May. Struggled on two most recent starts (one Flat and one hurdle) however. Interesting to see how he performs.

16 race maiden has finished well beaten over hurdles in four starts in 2018. Probably best watched with blinkers applied for the first time on his return to the Flat.

Betting

Forecast

A Few Bob Short (5/1), Dixie Highway (5/1), Creative Talent (11/2), A Place Apart (6/1), Greengage (6/1), Ineffable (8/1), Match My Fire (10/1), Sbraase (12/1), Cavelli (16/1), Beat Of The Sea (16/1), Greanta (25/1), Let It Go Papa (25/1), U S Navy Seal (25/1), Molly Kaye (25/1), My Amazing One (28/1), Loose Chippings (33/1)

Verdict

The consistent A FEW BOB SHORT can gain his first victory following some good efforts in recent starts. The selection has placed off a higher mark in the past and can see off A Place Apart who placed at Sligo earlier this month and has the forecast underfoot conditions to suit. Dixie Highway was in decent form earlier this year and can put a couple of disappointing efforts behind him by finishing third.
  1. A Few Bob Short
  2. A Place Apart
  3. Dixie Highway
