Had been shaping with some promise for this yard prior to gaining his first win from 14 starts here last time out over 1m. 7lb rise and a poor draw make life tougher but step up in trip could unlock some improvement.

Still a maiden after 10 runs but has placed on three of her four starts at this course and produced a better effort at Newcastle last time when third of 11 in a maiden. Step up in trip may unlock improvement and not ruled out off a career low mark.

Still a maiden after 12 starts but still feasibly handicapped on the best of his placed form. Makes AW handicap debut and this surface could suit so not one that can be ruled out.

6/4

Improved markedly on her second start in a handicap when a C&D winner last time out. Carries a 6lb penalty for that but she's unexposed and may be capable of further improvement.

Still a maiden after six starts but produced a better effort when fifth of 15 at Killarney last time. Handicapper has surprisingly dropped her 3lb for that and she may be able to get competitive on AW debut with a useful apprentice claiming 3lb.

A maiden after 19 starts and has struggled in claiming company on recent outings. Hard to fancy back in a handicap on debut for new yard.

Left all previous form behind when winning on AW debut here last time out over 1m. A 4lb rise is manageable and should go well again.

Has improved this winter, possibly for the switch to AW racing and followed up a placed effort here with a wide margin win over 1m4f last time. Drop back in trip shouldn't inconvenience him and a 9lb rise is fair. Not ruled out.

A seven-race maiden when trained by Jessica Harrington but not disgraced on yard debut returning from an absence at Gowran last time. Needs to improve but may do so.

Well beaten on each of her four starts including AW/handicap debut last time out and hard to fancy on all known form. Wears first-time cheekpieces.

Yet to win in 14 starts and there's been very little encouragement in his latest efforts including here on Wednesday. Others preferred.

Well beaten on each of her four starts including handicap debut last time. Wears first-time blinkers but draw is not ideal and others are more appealing.

Unplaced on each of his nine starts, though has hinted at ability from time to time. This looks competitive however and wide draw isn't ideal here.

Second Reserve: Well beaten in five starts and hard to fancy from out of the handicap in a race this competitive.

Forecast

Too Precious (6/4), Rips Dream (11/4), Russian Campaign (6/1), Reverberation (9/1), Stealth (16/1), Spanish Soprano (16/1), Maunganui (20/1), Ten Bears (25/1), Fabulae (25/1), Lady Godiva (33/1), Bye Bye Brussels (33/1), Aishling's Secret (33/1), Feisty Katerina (33/1), Inis Cealtra (33/1), Kanthaka (50/1), Lady Yasmin (50/1)

Verdict

REVERBERATION has a wide draw (13) to cope with but the gelding gave the impression he may improve for the step up in trip and he gets a useful apprentice claiming 5lb. Too Precious is an obvious danger who won over course and distance last time out. Russian Campaign is another last time out course winner who makes some appeal from an each-way perspective.
