50/1

Poor nine-race maiden with two defeats coming on turf. Well held in a couple of maiden hurdle starts recently and not in the form required to play a part.

39-race maiden including without success in 18 turf starts. Beaten 26L at Dundalk on the AW recently and still looking no nearer to a breakthrough success.

C&D winner on his only visit here over the combination seven years ago. Held up in rear on seasonal debut, running on well towards the finish to eventually finish sixth of 16 behind the impressive Bobby Boy. Leading player.

Just the one run in the Godolphin for trainer Saeed bin Suroor, finishing fourth of 10 beaten ¾L in November 2016. Ran as well as could be expected finishing seventh of 12 beaten 10½L on return to the track last month. Tough ask.

Five-race maiden including a couple of defeats on turf, well held over 7f at Cork and Galway. Will need to raise overall profile to playa role here.

19-race maiden, career best when third in a Clonmel claimer in May, but has been well down the field in a couple of starts since. Tough ask and others preferred.

Unplaced in 11 starts on the Flat and hinted at ability although ultimately well beaten on first two starts over timber at Naas and Fairyhouse. Plenty more needed on return to the level and others preferred.

20-race maiden 18 of those defeats coming on turf. 12th of 16 beaten 22L when last seen in October, sent off at odds of 100/1 and running accordingly in the process. Hard to place any faith in.

Now a maiden after 25 starts including 14 defeats on turf. Not disgraced in four starts since the turn of the year but alway liable to find a couple quicker in his races.

Camacho filly who usually flatters to deceive in here races as witnessed in a couple of starts on the AW at Dundalk and more recently an 11L defeat at Newcastle last month. Form doesn't warrant support.

Dual winner on the AW at Dundalk but remains without success in 11 starts on turf. Drops in grade here and appears more than capable of hitting the frame.

Betting

Forecast

Castle Guest (8/13), Stormy Air (7/2), Yamato (4/1), The Perch (10/1), High Mark (12/1), Olly's Folly (14/1), Deauville Society (20/1), Lady Scathach (25/1), Rockview Emperor (25/1), Stadius (33/1), Its Harrys Girl (50/1), Effernock Fizz (50/1), Multiviz (66/1)

Verdict

Despite his advancing years, the Mick Halford-trained CASTLE GUEST can land the opener here following an encouraging seasonal debut behind the impressive and well thought of, Bobby Boy at Navan last month. Stablemate, Yamato could emerge as the biggest danger in a weak looking renewal, while Stormy Air and High Mark can battle for the remaining place position.
