Dual course winner who has been running well in defeat in a number of starts here since November. Should be among the leading players.

Ninth of 14 beaten 10L on sole start here last month over 1m2½f. Not to be taken lightly and any market move would be worth noting.

Without a win in six starts over C&D but has hit the frame on a couple of occasions including when second of 14 beaten 1½L last month. Needs to show more consistency but not completely ruled out.

Eight-race maiden well held on stable debut last month following a move from the John O'Connell yard. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Betting

Forecast

Sleepy Head (2/1), Drakensberg (5/1), Power Drive (6/1), New Vocation (8/1), Caronda (8/1), Madame Delavanti (9/1), Important Message (9/1), Spinning Pearl (12/1), Groovy Jazz (20/1), Magic Sea (25/1), Paula's Prayer (40/1), The Perch (66/1), Markus Twain (66/1)

Verdict

The manner of SLEEPY HEAD's second of 12 over C&D in November and her runner-up position last month puts the daughter of Rip Van Winkle firmly in the mix here to add to her two course victory's. In a competitive contest, Madame Delavanti on debut for the Adrian McGuinness yard and potential improver, Caronda appear more than capable of hitting the frame, while any market move for Drakensberg should be monitored.
