Zoffany colt cost €60,000 as a yearling and is a half-brother to a 10f AW winner. Won a Dundalk maiden in November and ran well in defeat on seasonal debut in a Cork handicap last month over similar trip. Can go well again.

Eight-race maiden who struggled when last seen on turf finishing last of 16 at Naas in October. Could be worth a market check following a number of decent efforts in defeat on the AW at Dundalk since February.

Failed to build on a promise debut at Roscommon when finishing down the field in a number of subsequent starts between September and November last year. Hard to fancy on return to action and others hold stronger claims.

Zoffany filly, cost €155,000 as a yearling. Dam a juvenile winner over this trip and half-sister to three Group winners. Lost place and weakened to finish seventh of 15 on seasonal debut at Limerick last month over a similar trip. More needed.

Well down the pack in a couple of nursery handicaps last term including when finishing sixth of 18 on final start of the season in a Galway 1m handicap in October. Promising run on seasonal bow in March but more needed here.

Dragon Pulse gelding, cost €35,000 as a yearling and €10,000 as a Breeze-up purchase. Off the mark at the third time of asking at Dundalk last month. Beaten since at the same venue and possibly best watched on return to turf.

A close third in a Dundalk maiden was the pick of his efforts for trainer Jessica Harrington. Not beaten far when running well in defeat in two starts for new connections since last month. Further improvement would not surprise.

War Front filly out of Irish 1000 Guineas winner. Four-race maiden but three of her starts have produced plenty of winners. Beaten but not disgraced in a couple of starts this term, she may have been given a lenient mark on handicap debut.

Shaped well to finish in the frame on each of his two handicap starts to date including finishing second of nine on the AW at Dundalk last month. Form solid and fancied here.

Lethal Force gelding out of a Pivotal mare. Half-brother to winners El Chapo and Lethal Lunch. Eight-race maiden and needs a chunk of improvement to play a role in the finish here.

£20,000 Dandy Man half-brother to Storm Over. Well beaten in three starts for former handler Robert Cowell. Plenty to prove on stable debut based on what he has shown so far.

Betting

Forecast

Pensylvania Avenue (2/1), Royal Canford (6/1), Carefully (7/1), Jungle Jungle (7/1), Red Sole Diva (7/1), Han Solo (10/1), Duhallow Noelie (14/1), She's My Dream (16/1), Never Shy Away (20/1), Will Be King (25/1), Showmethegin (28/1), Lethal Endeavour (50/1), Storm Blitz (80/1)

Verdict

The Aidan O'Brien-trained CAREFULLY, looks to have been found an ideal opportunity run a big race and off what looks like a lenient mark on handicap debut. The daughter of War Front can get off the mark at the fifth time of asking for connections holding off the probable challenge from the Gordon Elliott-trained, Pensylvania Avenue who can emerge as the biggest danger. Han Solo, Red Sole Diva and Jungle Jungle appear genuine sorts who look capable of hitting the frame.
