Helmet colt, cost 26,000 gns as a foal and €140,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to two winners including a Listed winner. Much improved at Clonmel on reappearance and ran to a similar level at Limerick. Open to improvement and a leading player.

Sole win in 21 starts at Wolverhampton over 7f and has proved much better suited by an AW surface. Tailed-off back on turf at Naas and yet to place in this sphere. Hard to fancy.

Seemed to lose her way after leaving Jim Bolger last summer but much better on Leopardstown reappearance when a running on second over this trip. Suited by these conditions and remains well handicapped despite 2lb rise. Can be involved.

Remains a maiden following eight starts and profile was inconsistent when trained by Andrew Slattery last year. Appreciates plenty of cut in the ground but plenty more needed following reappearance over 7f here.

Inconsistent filly on a losing run stretching back to 2017 and has proven better suited by 7f which includes a win at this track. Better effort back over that trip here but an infrequent winner and can't be guaranteed to build on it.

Remains an 11-race maiden but placed for the first time when second at Naas last month. Caught the eye running on well there and best form has come with cut in the ground and could be open to improvement now for powerful stable.

Vale of York filly is a half-sister to 6f winner Inishmot Duchess. Hasn't made much of an impression in four starts to date including on reappearance at Naas. Plenty more needed now.

Showed some early promise including a Cork heavy ground win off 7lb higher than current mark. Had seemingly regressed and lost her way since until a much better third latest. More needed again but could be competitive.

Hasn't really progressed and remains a maiden following nine starts. Ran he best race for a while at Clonmel on her reappearance but disappointing again at Tipperary and others look stronger candidates.

Fast Company filly out of a Titus Livius mare. Half-sister to Jet Setting and Downforce. Hints of ability on debut but very poor in two subsequent runs. Best watched on handicap and season debut.

Filly by Arcano out of a Generous mare. Nothing of note last Autumn until an improved performance at Dundalk on the AW in November. Well below that in two runs this season and questions remain at present.

Home-bred Dawn Approach filly, cost €50,000 as a foal. Half-sister to a dual-Listed winner. Maiden after five starts, showed little in first four before a bit better in a bunch finish at Dundalk in November. Market best guide on reappearance.

Yet to place in six starts on turf with sole winning coming off this mark on the AW at Dundalk. Looked one paced in both starts back last month and plenty more needed now.

Still yet to win a race following 26 starts but went very close to breaking his duck on his second start for new yard in a Clonmel claimer when headed late. Drop in trip may help but more needed back in a handicap.

Elusive Pimpernel filly, dam was a winner over 6f/7f. Yet to place in five starts to date with the best coming in a maiden claimer. Struggled to beat many rivals home in three runs since and easy to overlook.

Showed little in four starts back in 2016 so ran with some credit following a 847-day absence at Dundalk in December. Disappointed back there over further in January and while the drop in trip may help, doesn't look overly reliable.

Betting

Forecast

Scorpion Black (4/1), Midnitemudcrabs (5/1), Khafaaq (6/1), Our Anniversary (7/1), Summer's Dream (8/1), Rince Deireanach (10/1), Olly's Folly (10/1), My Lark (12/1), Kudbegood (16/1), Lady Savanah (16/1), Figure It Out (16/1), Come At Dawn (20/1), Letmebreeze (20/1), Wilderness (20/1), Tiernaur General (25/1), Descendant (33/1), The Factory Girl (33/1)

Verdict

Khafaaq will need more but he's shown promise the last twice and has more upside than the majority of these. Rince Deireanach was much better on her reappearance and should have more to offer now off this very good mark. SCORPION BLACK has shaped as though he needs cut but remains lightly-raced on that sort of surface so could be worth following.

  2. Rince Deireanach
  3. Khafaaq
