Sir Prancealot half-brother to 6f-1m1f winner Christmas Aria and 1¼m-1m3½f winner Avocadeau. Hard to weigh up, but not overfaced on debut, and of interest if attracting support in the market.

Fairly useful efforts from the front in a pair of 7f maidens here and at Down Royal in July, and the one to beat if reproducing that level of form, for all he's been a little disappointing since. Blinkers off after a poor run last time.

Showed ability when sixth of 11 to Gold Jasmine in maiden claimer at Tipperary on debut, but seemed stretched by 7½f at Listowel last time, and may benefit from drop in trip.

4/1

Improved when a close second on her nursery debut at the Curragh last month, and matched that form when third in a 7½f maiden claimer at Tipperary. Just a respectable effort last time, and may need a stiffer test than this.

Improved on earlier efforts when head second of 13 to Dancing Mountain in 5½f nursery at Naas last time, showing good speed. Needs to find more, but going the right way.

Well held in three maidens, and while this is an easier task, he isn't easy to make a case for.

Standout effort when mid-field at Gowran (7f) in June, but failed badly to build on that next time, and now tried in cheekpieces down in class.

Shaped well on debut, but not progressed, although best recent effort when third at this level at Leopardstown with blinkers fitted. Visor tried now, and should be competitive, for all drop to 6f isn't ideal.

Career best run came on his second start in a 5f Down Royal maiden in June when third of nine beaten 2¾L. Not built on that in nurseries, and blinkers reached for now dropped to claiming company.

Big price and well held when eighth of 10 at Down Royal (f) on recent debut. Needs plenty of improvement to figure.

Bred to need middle distances, and has shown virtually nothing in three tries at 5f/6f. Gelded since latest outing, but makes little appeal.

Has beaten just two rivals in total, and looks very limited on early evidence. Tongue-tie she wore last time is retained.

Has beaten a solitary rival in three starts so far, and can't be considered even in such a weak affair.

Hinted at ability in maidens, but finished last in a low-grade nursery here last time, and it will be a very weak race that she can win.

Has regressed since mild promise of debut at Tipperary in June, and needs a visor to sharpen her up if she's to be competitive here.

Best effort when eighth of 14 to So Perfect at Navan in April, and not seen since the following month. Still makes more appeal than most of these, however, so worth a check in the market.

Betting

Forecast

Biltmore (7/2), Chernish (4/1), Emily Grace (9/2), Man Of The Sea (8/1), Speirling Ophelia (8/1), Nearly (9/1), Rest Bay (12/1), Social Imposer (16/1), Sea The Night (20/1), Fox Hill (25/1), Cozy Sky (25/1), Ebony Belle (28/1), Wolfofmountstreet (40/1), Frow (40/1), Miss Wow (66/1), Aishling's Vision (80/1)

Verdict

BILTMORE is hardly an ironclad selection, but he can be excused a flop last time when not taking to blinkers, and the best of his form gives him a decent chance of making all the running in this weak claimer. Man of The Sea should be competitive in a change of headgear, with Emily Grace considered on the basis that she is progressing with racing, for all she has a bit to find.
