610-2OR: 82
6/1

Ended a long losing run when landing a Clonmel handicap over 1m1½f on yielding ground last month off a 4lb lower mark. Shaped like there was more to come and a leading player stepping up in trip.

77-rated handicapper on the Flat for trainer Ralph Beckett. Running well in defeat in a couple of starts for current connections. Went very close on latest start at Dundalk and a repeat of that effort would herald another bold bid.

Three from 17 turf starts on the Flat, hitting the frame on a further three occasions and winner on sole start over C&D of a similar contest at this meeting 12 months ago off a 5lb lower mark. Likely to find it tough going here.

Hasn't won since 2017 and he was in a poor run of form towards the end of last season. Eighth of 14 beaten 8½L on seasonal debut at Naas last month and others look open to more improvement.

Distance winner who has been blowing hot and cold in a number of starts since October both on turf and the AW at Dundalk. Never has been the easiest to catch right.

One from seven on turf, the gelding keeps his better performances for the AW at Dundalk. Not seen since January and is hard to enthuse over in this company.

Four time winner on the AW but is just one from 16 on turf, the win coming in a Lingfield maiden three years ago when in the hands of trainer Harry Dunlop. Hard to make a case for him on recent form to hand.

Six-race maiden on the Flat, the filly was seen struggling in a couple of hurdling efforts towards the end of the year. Generally well held on form on the level and others make more appeal.

Needed every yard of 1m1f to get up at Tipperary last month before finishing a gallant third of 14 beaten 1L at Limerick over a similar distance two days later. One of the more intriguing contenders.

Ended last term with an excellent close second on testing ground at Galway and reappeared with a comparable performance in fifth of 14 at Limerick, before further improvement at Cork earlier this month. One for the shortlist.

Betting

Forecast

Happy Company (7/2), Rock On Seamie (7/2), Tirmizi (6/1), Grasping At Straws (7/1), Schoolboy Error (7/1), Poseidon (8/1), Construct (9/1), New Direction (10/1), Bianca Minola (10/1), Andratx (16/1), Moonmeister (20/1), California Lad (33/1)

Verdict

The solid and consistent ROCK ON SEAMIE has returned in rude health, enjoying his racing at Tipperary and Limerick last month. The Ray Hackett-trained winner off a 7lb lower mark last month, can land the spoils here, with Clonmel winner, Tirmizi and John McConnell's Construct, emerging as the most likely dangers.
  1. Rock On Seamie
  2. Tirmizi
  3. Construct
