Promise in first four starts at Dundalk including first handicap (fifth of nine). Seventh of 18 here since in a handicap a similar level on turf bow but step up on that needed even at this low grade.

Bumped into some useful sort sin maidens before respectable start in 1m4f handicap at Leopardstown latest. Not sure he wants to step back in trip but perhaps can make more use of him here. Draw not ideal.

No signs of improvement across his five starts at two. Starts out upped in trip now as a three-year-old but others make greater appeal.

Third in last three starts and only went down by 2L at Dundalk latest. Blinkers added in aim to eek out slight improvement needed to get him over the line. Certainly one of the most likely sorts.

Beaten a total of 57L in his four maiden starts to date. Handicap at a low grade will suit better but others more appealing.

Had the misfortune of bumping into three smart Ballydoyle winners in maidens so perhaps no surprise he improved plenty to finish fourth of 21 on handicap bow at Leopardstown over 1m4f. Lost two places close home there so even better at 1m2f now.

Beaten just a neck at Dundalk (1m2½f) in first time blinkers two start back and ran to a similar level latest when fourth there over 1m4f. No reason he can't be as effective now on turf so one for the shortlist here.

Off the mark on the fifth time of asking at Dundalk, when beating eight rivals and Esprit De Lumiere a neck. Ahead of that rival once again when a close second nest over 1m4f. Only once raced on turf before but if as effective surely will go close.

In rear throughout and never a factor in her three maidens to date. Latest two over 7f which looked inadequate. Do better here for extra 3f. Yard also run Esprit de Lumiere who appeals more.

Twice second in handicaps, firstly here (1m½f) and then at Musselburgh (1m1f) but well held by some of these over 1m4f at Leopardstown next. Shorter trip/lower mark help this time.

Next to nothing in three maidens from 7f-1m2f to date. Low mark for ordinary handicap means he ought to do better but can't be confident.

Rated better on turf than the AW but is another who looks held by a couple of others on previous form and looks a risky option this time.

Betting

Forecast

Lyrical Attraction (4/1), Dreamboat Dave (4/1), Esprit de Lumiere (6/1), Pearl Warrior (7/1), Bellepower (7/1), Malbas (8/1), Muntahez (8/1), Kinch (12/1), Hidden Spark (14/1), Eyeoweyou (14/1), High Glory (14/1), Military Star (16/1), Light Breeze (20/1), Ellaat (25/1), Der Mc (25/1), Leahman (33/1), Indictment (50/1), Little Stone (50/1)

Verdict

A very winnable handicap and it may be worth chancing KINCH who has been spotted staying on well over both 6f and 7f this term. If he gets this trip he could improve significantly now and make light of this handicap mark, Oisin Orr looks a statement of intent. The best form over this sort of trip on turf probably belongs to Pearl Warrior who ran well over 1m4f latest despite looking to come to the end of his tether late on. Lyrical Attraction's AW form is enough to give him every chance too.
