By Slade Power out of an Indian Ridge mare who failed to make any impression in his first three starts but left that behind with a better effort over 7f at this track. Extra furlong should now suit as he hit the line well and a player.

Elusive Pimpernel half-sister to 5f winner Johnny Lawman and 6f/7f winner Strong Michel. Well held on all three starts at long odds and although better on reappearance, lots more required to be involved.

Lawman filly out of a Bachelor Duke mare who put in an improved performance when runner-up and staying on strongly over 7f on handicap debut over here (Insane Bolt 4th). Only likely to improve now up to this distance and first-time visor may help.

Filly by Roderic O'Connor out of an Indian Ridge mare. Poor and debut and on return here but best effort in a maiden came over this C&D. On a fair mark based on that sole run for handicap debut and could be competitive if bouncing back.

Gale Force Ten colt out of a Shamardal mare. Broke through on start number seven with a determined effort over this trip on the AW at Dundalk. Has more to offer over this distance but chance depends on handling these different conditions.

March foal by Elusive Pimpernel out of a Bach mare. who showed improved form in her first two nursery starts last year. Disappointed on final start last year in a stronger race and market should indicate expectations on reappearance.

€16,000 son of Olympic Glory from an unraced dam closely related to a flat and hurdle winner at up to 3m. Struggled in three starts last year when generally unfancied. Best watched on season and handicap debut.

Big Bad Bob filly, sister to a juvenile winner. Half-sister to a a juvenile Listed winner. Left first four runs behind when shaping far better on her second handicap start last year. Has now joined a leading stable and interesting on return.

Put in a much improved performance when staying readily clear for a breakthrough success on start number seven. Up 9lb but the manner of the performance following a break suggested she should be one to keep on the right side of.

By Tough As Nails out of a dam placed at 7f-1m and over hurdles. Career best came at Navan on handicap debut last September and well handicapped on that, however not quite in the same form since.

Rock of Gibraltar colt out of a 1m3f winner. Little promise in two starts last year and on return. Up a furlong and may need even further than this in time. Others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Grace To Grace (3/1), Gatsby Cap (6/1), Insane Bolt (7/1), Meryems Way (8/1), Ideal Pal (8/1), Ho Ho Bird (8/1), Faerie Laws (9/1), Manard (12/1), Vocal Impact (12/1), In My Business (16/1), Elusive Fantasy (16/1), Cois Sionna (20/1), Trueba (20/1), Katie Blue (22/1), High Glory (25/1), Leahman (25/1), Masque Of Anarchy (25/1), Willie The Wisp (25/1), Little Stone (33/1)

Verdict

Plenty of challengers in an open race where MERYEMS WAY gets a narrow verdict on the basis that she could still be ahead of the handicapper following a much improved win. Gatsby Cap likewise gained a likeable win if he can transfer his form from the AW while Faerie Laws can kick on again up to this distance.
