9/2

Dual two-year-old winner ran well enough first time out in a 5½f Listed race before a slow start latest saw her a non-factor. That can be forgiven to some extent and no surprise if she makes a bold bid here.

Built on promising reappearance when winning at Dundalk (1m) before finishing third of five latest at Gowran where he travelled like a winner but faded. Perhaps then this trip can help and could be worth chancing here.

Off the mark at the fifth time of asking latest when winning a 17-runner Naas handicap (6f). Upped 9lb for that win so things get tougher now but she looks to be on the up so can't be ruled out here.

7/1

Outran odds of 66/1 at Naas to finish second last October and showed it no fluke when winning a 7f Gowran maiden. Drop to 6f no concern and should come on plenty given she was yard's first winner of 2019.

Placed three times before finally getting off the mark at Dundalk in February. Eighth of 17 to Woody Creek latest after a break gives him a fair bit to find despite being better off at the weights now.

Betting

Forecast

Woody Creek (2/1), National Guard (9/4), Chicago May (9/2), Cityman (5/1), Galtee Mist (7/1)

Verdict

A small field but no shortage of contenders here. The vote goes to NATIONAL GUARD who cruised to the front over 1m latest before fading into third. His best attributes all point at him being a sprinter so this trip could be just the tonic. Recent winners Galtee Mist and Woody Creek both remain open to further improvement, particularly the thrice-raced former.
