8/1

Impressive C&D winner last November in first-time blinkers. Landed a gamble that day and won with more authority than allowed for in today's 3lb higher mark. The one to beat if the market suggests she is fit.

Landed a barrier trial here and has run some good races in defeat since. On his third trainer after just seven races, but this will be his first attempt at 5f and the indications last time were that this might prove to be his best trip.

Proper 5f filly who has shown plenty of speed in her starts to date. Makes AW debut and yard do not have the best of records here. Collateral form through the winner of her last start gives her plenty to find with Emily Grace.

Closely matched with Emily Grace on October running here although he has not run to a similar level since. Only beat one home on turf last time when favourably drawn.

Noted staying on well to finish third over 6f at Fairyhouse on third start before running poorly here over an extra furlong. The runner-up has scored since off a mark of 73 so he is potentially well-treated if happy with the drop in trip.

Sprang a surprise when winning from 7lb out of the handicap over C&D. Only has an extra 1lb to carry and should confirm form with Compton's Finale.

A strong traveller who looks the type to improve as he carried a lot of scope last term. Not sure what his right trip is, but last season's efforts would suggest this may a bit sharp.

Looked destined for better last summer but performances have been on the wane since and trainer now experiments with headgear. Has the speed, draw and form to win this if there is a positive response.

Showed plenty of speed here last month before fading in the final furlong. Drop to 5f a clear benefit and she will be a lot fitter.

Has a bit to find with Emily Grace on October running here but that was her first run in three months. Looked unlucky next time and her first two starts make her look attractively weighted. Worth a look in the market.

Betting

Forecast

Sundance Star (4/1), Will Be King (6/1), Jarrocho (13/2), Associate Rock (7/1), Emily Grace (7/1), Miss Jabeam (8/1), Compton's Finale (8/1), Dandy Belle (8/1), Olay Power (9/1), Sunset Nova (14/1)

Verdict

This looks highly difficult to solve given the likes of Miss Jabeam, Olay Power and Emily Grace have been treated kindly by the handicapper but lack a recent run. Associate Rock showed speed to this distance here last month and a similar remark applies to WILL BE KING. The selection has been dropped 4lb for his latest run in a 6f maiden here when third to a highly-regarded Ballydoyle runner. The runner-up has shaped well since and he has given every indication that 5f is as far as he wants to go.
