Beaten a minimum of 15L in three starts so far. Likely to appreciate the step up in trip but probably best watched on handicap debut from out of the weights.

Well beaten at big prices in four maiden starts including over 7f at Galway (yielding) early last month. Others make more appeal on handicap debut from out of the weights.

Betting

Forecast

Colfer Me (11/4), Rathmoylan Cove (6/1), Cuban Surfer (7/1), Pleasurable (8/1), Calorific (10/1), Harvest Bow (10/1), Gold Jasmine (12/1), Gold Memory (12/1), Finding Nero (14/1), Hidden Spark (14/1), Nikeandnemesis (16/1), Always Running (16/1), Elusive Fantasy (20/1), Clifftop (20/1), Vhagar (25/1), Riding The Storm (25/1), The Next Abbey (50/1), Lady Alessandria (50/1), An Bhfuil Tu Reidh (50/1)

Verdict

COLFER ME was a handicap debut winner last time out and he is taken to defy top weight to take this highly competitive nursery contest. The selection has to defy a 10lb rise in the weights but looks capable of doing so and he can see off Rathmoylan Cove who finished runner-up in that Down Royal event. Third place can go to Elusive Fantasy who can step up on previous efforts for a yard in good form at present.
