Came away to win impressively by 4L from a 15 strong field at Gowran Park earlier this month off a 10lb lower mark. Another bold bid looks on the cards but rise may temporarily half progress.

Nibbled at in the betting when finally getting off the mark over 7f at Dundalk 15th time of ask in February. Without success in six starts on turf but one that cannot be totally ruled out.

Two from 12 starts over this trip and the mare has hit the frame on a further two occasions. Poor effort over 6f earlier this month but can go better back at this distance without troubling the judge.

Just one win in 14 starts, a soft ground win over 6f at Doncaster 12 months ago. Well held in a belo-par effort at Naas earlier this month finishing 7L behind the gutsy Mkhalad. Hard to make a case for him on form to hand.

Losing run is now mounting up, standing at 17 here and overall record casts doubt on his ability to get competitive back on turf.

Drawn 16 of 16 at Gowran Park earlier this month. Attempted to drop in but was forced wide for most of the contest. Short of room two out before making giant strides when in the clear to finish fourth beaten 1½L. Big player.

Winner on debut at Dundalk on the AW landing a 13 runner handicap in November. Return to action didn't go to plan in February and remains with plenty to prove in this contest.

Running respectably over the winter in a six-race Dundalk campaign on the AW without success. Best watched on turf debut unless the market indicates otherwise.

Winner of his sole start over this trip in a handicap last month on the AW at Dundalk. Beaten since over further but the Art Connoisseur gelding cannot be totally dismissed back over this trip.

One win from 17 on turf and losing run goes back to 2017. Hit the frame on a couple of occasions last term but over shorter trips. Slipping in the weights but still opposable.

By Arcano out of a Generous mare. Nothing of note in a number of desolate efforts last Autumn until a much improved performance at Dundalk on the AW in November. Well held on seasonal debut earlier this month at Gowran Park and others preferred.

Plenty to take out of her seasonal debut running the gallant Annie Fior to 5¾L at Gowran Park over this trip earlier this month. Could go well without troubling the judge.

Three career wins on turf came when in the hands of trainer John Quinn over 18-months ago. Beaten 16L in a Gowran Park 7f handicap earlier this month and has plenty to find on Solomons Seal and Lunastar alone.

Well held and never nearer in four starts since February here over a variety of trips. Will need to raise overall profile to play a role in this contest.

Goes well on the AW at Dundalk but is without success on the turf in 10 starts despite hitting the frame on his sole C&D run in October when third of 16 beaten ¾L off a 4lb higher mark. Worth a market check.

Six race maiden at Dundalk and well held on turf debut at Gowran Park behind Villa Maria earlier this month. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Well beaten in a couple of starts before another poor effort over C&D when last seen in October finishing a well beaten 15th of 18. Hasn't shown enough to be of interest here.

Verdict

SOLOMONS SEAL was forced to race wide for most of the race at Gowran Park earlier this month, finding himself short of room two out before making giant strides when in the clear to finish fourth beaten 1½L behind the gallant Annie Fior in the 16-runner handicap. The five-year-old runs off a 3lb higher mark here but can hold of the challenges coming from the likes of last time out winner, Villa Maria, Lunastar, Crest Of A Wave and Happy Company, the mount of Colin Keane.
