Havana Gold colt out of a Dalakhani mare. Two out of three last term including a win over this trip at Killarney when last seen in August. Appears to be more than capable of holding his own on handicap debut.

Progressive filly and her fifth at Listed level at Leopardstown has been franked with the third home having won a Group 1 since at Newmarket. Possibly best watched on handicap debut unless a market move is forthcoming.

Sprang a 33/1 shock on Curragh debut last summer, but subsequent starts point to that win being somewhat of a one off. Looks up against it here.

Bumped into some smart rivals in three unsuccessful maidens last season culminating in a sixth of 20 at Leopardstown. More than impressive when landing a Leopardstown 7f on handicap debut earlier this month off a 10lb lower mark. Leading player.

Running well in four career starts on the AW at Dundalk including a couple of runs since February. Worth a market check and further consideration for inform trainer/jockey combination.

Looked a useful sort back in the summer but form rather fell away. Shaped well on seasonal return finishing second of seven beaten ½L on the AW at Dundalk last month. Plenty to prove in this company.

Debut win last summer but looking exposed now and has been well beaten making no impression in two starts this term. Hard to see him figuring here.

Camacho filly is half-sister to two winners at two. Failed to build on a promising second of 16 beaten 3¾L when finishing down the pack in a Group 3 Leopardstown contest earlier this month. Could be playing for place money back in handicap company.

War Front colt out of a dual winner who was placed at Group 3 level. Without success in four starts last term but got off the mark at the sixth time of asking at Dundalk on the AW earlier this month. Not easy to discount.

One from three starts on the AW at Dundalk in his career to date. But needs to show plenty of progress from those runs to be in a position to trouble the judge in this contest.

Colt by Excelebration who shaped with plenty of promise on first two career starts in August before winning at the third time of asking in a Dundalk 1m contest when last seen in November. Entitled to make the shortlist in this contest.

Pulled up on latest start at Leopardstown earlier in the month when appearing to lose his action and careering into a rival. Winner on the AW at Dundalk in February but more needed here.

Well beaten and no impression in three starts since winning a maiden over 5f on soft-to-heavy ground here 12 months ago. Looks up against it on handicap debut.

Running well in defeat in five career starts including two solid turf starts at Gowran Park and here over 7f last month finishing third of 16 beaten 5L. Step back up in trip to suit.

By Acclamation is full-brother to a 5f and 6f winner out of a 1m2f winning dam. Not disgraced in four maiden starts to date and is worthy of a market check and further consideration on handicap debut.

Betting

Forecast

Crockford (4/1), I Am Superman (9/2), These Days (7/1), Chocolate Music (7/1), Sky Seven (9/1), Breaking Story (12/1), Zuenoon (12/1), Ferretti (14/1), Invasion Day (14/1), Black Magic Woman (16/1), Major Reward (18/1), Karasi (20/1), Dadoozdart (20/1), Jupiter Road (33/1), Copia Verborum (33/1)

Verdict

Recent winners on the AW at Dundalk Sky Seven and Ferretti can give a good account of themselves here and should not be underestimated but preference is for the impressive Leopardstown scorer, I AM SUPERMAN for the in form Michael O'Callaghan yard. The Footstepsinthesand colt led a field of 18 a merry dance on seasonal debut and can build on that win here at the expense of the Dermot Weld-trained Zuenoon.
  1. I Am Superman
  2. Zuenoon
  3. Ferretti
