59-12OR: 95D
7/2

Talented sprinter who ran well on AW Finals Day at Lingfield in hot race. Tends to do his best on artificial surfaces, has won over 5f on turf but career-best needed from current perch.

All career successes (3-19) have come on AW, though three-times hit the crossbar in turf sprints after joining Denis Hogan last year, including over C&D. Runs this track well and not counted out.

8/1

Dual 5f winner at two-years-old, has come up well short in Listed races in 2-3 starts since, including seasonal bow at Cork (5½f, good; 16-1) eight days ago. This is a more realistic target.

79-rated handicapper last season for trainer David O'Meara, winning over 6f on soft going at Hamilton in June. Much-improved on second start for this handler when 2¼L second of 22 behind Mokhalad at Naas (6f, good to yielding) recently.

Two wins and two seconds at two for Michael O'Callaghan from seven runs; failed to spark on debut for this handler at Naas (6f, good to yielding; 12-1) recently but not harshly treated if improving for that run.

Moved to the UK last year but remained a frequent visitor to Ireland, counted a 5f course success (rated 78) amongst four wins in first season for trainer Jedd O'Keefe. Had a recent pipe-opener on AW, won second time out last season.

Rip Van Winkle gelding who opened his account at the 13th time of asking over 6f (good to yielding; 14-1) at Naas last week. Not the most obvious contender to follow up.

Won three in quick succession last autumn including at Naas over 6f and twice over 5f. Handicapper may have caught up now however and midfield effort at this track on reappearance suggested that.

Betting

Forecast

Only Spoofing (3/1), Alfredo Arcano (7/2), Twenty Minutes (5/1), Aleef (11/2), Amanaat (7/1), Bailly (8/1), Dash D'Or (11/1), Evasive Power (20/1)

Verdict

The talented Alfredo Arcano is given every respect and is in good heart but he may be needing a career-best on these terms to put his head in front. Instead, a chance is handed to Ger Lyons' BAILLY, a dual winner over this sort or trip last year. Since then he's been highly-tried, including on his reappearance in Listed company. This looks a more presentable chance for him to take a step forward. Jedd O'Keefe's raider Only Spoofing is respected along with Mokhalad and Hathiq.
