Denis Hogan's mare has career figures of five wins in 37 outings. Won four times last season at 5f and if she can find that form again, she can be competitive but she has failed to fire in four starts this term so far.

Only won once (Down Royal maiden last year) but ran really well penultimate start when seventh of 21 beaten just 2L over 5½f here (led 1f out). Blinkers tried here and mark drops again.

Now gone 16 runs since last win in 2017, but shaped with more purpose over this trip at Naas last week and entitled to get competitive with repeat showing here.

Still searching for her first victory after 11 starts and was disappointing last time at the Curragh (6f, yielding to soft; 50-1). Has plenty to find on her rivals as she tries again to break her maiden with cheekpieces now tried.

Mare is a three-time turf winner and has shaped well on the AW this year. Ran fair race at Naas (5f, good to yielding; 20-1) recently back on turf (beaten 4L in the end) and may build on that now.

Course winner last year over half-furlong more, 1-9 on turf all told. Scored over 6f at Dundalk in March and has continued to show up well at that track. Perfectly entitled to get involved back on this surface.

Has not been at her best in three starts for this yard, but her French form as a youngster suggests she might be worth a try dropped back in distance. Watch betting.

AW winner at Dundalk in March over further, 2-13 career record now and while wins have been over further, ran close behind in third in Curragh contest over this trip won by Gopsies Daughter last summer, so cannot be ruled out with certainty.

Lightly-raced sort, enjoyed a profitable Musselburgh raid when breaking duck earlier this month over this journey. Since held there off current mark, so will need a bit more in this company to oblige.

Once rated 75 for Kevin Ryan in Britain, round the houses since but off the mark at Dundalk (6f, AW; 8-1) in December. Couple of tame showings there in the spring ensure he's got something to prove back for turf season.

Long-standing maiden, has been operating over significantly further trips lately with little threat of success. Colin Keane booked but leap of faith needed on the formbook evidence.

Now 9lb lower than 5f Bellewstown win last summer but that can probably be attributed to her being unplaced in nine subsequent runs. Looks held on form.

Has shown very little on her two all-weather starts earlier this year. Visor on for the first time to see if an improvement can be found.

Of fairly modest account based on eight starts so far, tailed off in a handicap at Naas (5f, good to yielding; 20-1) last week, hard to forecast big turnaround here.

Dawn Approach filly, bred for a bit further than this trip, has yet to show any tangible form in her five starts, including two handicaps, and is passed over fairly readily again.

Well into the veteran stages now. Has run well on the AW at Dundalk on occasion since joining this handler but a surprise should he prove up to this challenge, even with sizeable claim.

Filly for whom the positives were few last year, including a couple of starts around here. Seasonal bow and no surprise should she need the outing.

€75,000 yearling by Alhebayeb out of an unraced half-sister to two Group Three winners at 1m. No sign of justifying price tag in four runs from 5f-1m thus far and will have to show more before becoming of interest.

Power filly, showed little in three turf maidens last year (two of them here) before failing to improve in pair of AW handicaps at Dundalk. Off since November, opposable on form.

Betting

Forecast

May Remain (9/2), Dance Alone (9/2), Gopsies Daughter (5/1), Early Call (13/2), Bahlwan (13/2), Bellick (10/1), Straffan (10/1), Sweetest Taboo (12/1), Haqeeba (14/1), Takeachancejimmy (14/1), Rag Tatter (16/1), Trueba (16/1), Rego Park Lady (20/1), Zeb City (20/1), Oor Jock (25/1), Florida's King (28/1), Nakakande (33/1), Realtin Fantasy (33/1), Misty Dawn (33/1), Flojo (40/1)

Verdict

Plenty in with chances but BELLICK is a previous course winner and he has been in good heart on the AW at Dundalk of late. He looks set for a good run on his return to the turf, now rated 1lb below that previous course-winning mark. Recent Musselburgh winner Bahlwan wasn't disgraced back there since and could go well while May Remain was back on the right track last week at Naas and may be a danger. Haqeeba and Nakakande are possible place players.
