10/3

0-6 and comes here facing a stiff test in giving weight away at this stage. Did post one of her better efforts when not beaten far at Cork last time out but is untried over this trip and has a bit to prove.

8/1

Ran well in defeat at Down Royal last September and also posted a solid effort on the AW when last seen. Has an absence since November to overcome and her yard has been quiet so reasonable to say she'll be better for the run.

Only made modest strides in maidens and has shown very little since handicapping. Others make more appeal despite the assessor showing some leniency.

Well beaten in all three starts so far and big improvement required on her handicap debut.

Well held in her first couple of starts but did show more promise last time out. A bold show from Charousse in the 5.30pm race can boost the form; worth bearing in mind if supported in the betting.

Bred to be effective over this trip but three starts to date have left a bit to be desired. Another with improvement to find.

Only raced over 7f so far and has been well held in each of his four previous outings; plenty to find now.

Tried in a hood after making very little impression in four previous starts. Held in a big field at The Curragh last time but did show some promise. More of the same required here though.

Shown little in four previous starts - has finished last twice and not beaten many rivals the other times - and is hard to recommend.

Never been a factor in any of her three previous starts and needs to take a big step forward on what he's shown up to press; another who is hard to recommend as one to keep on the right side.

Hasn't made much progress in maiden company and makes limited appeal from a lowly mark for her handicap debut.

Yet to start a race at odds below 40/1 and previous performances suggest the betting market is unlikely to be any different on this occasion.

Ran well at Naas on her penultimate start but reverted to type on the AW last time she was seen. Best watched on seasonal bow.

Betting

Forecast

Pleasurable (10/3), Fanny Blankers (10/3), Cozy Sky (7/1), Trueba (15/2), Bionic Tonic (8/1), Espirit D'Escalier (8/1), Chagall (9/1), Three Angels (10/1), Adapt To Dan (10/1), Dillygass (10/1), Boughtinthedark (11/1), Finsceal Rose (12/1), Clifftop (20/1), Blackstone Cliff (33/1), Storm Blitz (33/1)

Verdict

Not many of these have captured much of the imagination as yet and the likes of Pleasurable, Espirit D'Escalier, and Dillygass all fit the bill as ones to be wary of despite having shown signs of ability. However, there may be more to come from BIONIC TONIC, who ran well behind some better rivals last time and she just edges the nomination as the one to be on with a minimum stakes play. Fanny Blanker showed improved form in a handicap last time and might be the one to give the selection the most to worry about.
