Three from 35 in his career hitting the frame on a further four occasions. Last win came 12 months ago off a 4lb higher mark. Has placed over C&D and deserves plenty of respect but unlikely to be troubling the judge.

Three race maiden, well beaten 18L finishing 14th of 17 on seasonal debut at Gowran Park earlier this month. Likely to find better handicapped sorts lurking on the card.

Both of his two career victories, from nine starts, have come over 5½f at Navan. Ran well in defeat when last seen finishing fifth of 17 beaten 2L in a Naas 5f handicap in November. Usually needs first run back from a break.

Four from 30 career starts, running in to the frame on a further five occasions. Has had a busy time since February on the AW at Dundalk and on turf. Winner on latest start at Navan earlier this month but has a 9lb rise to contend with.

Five race maiden on turf but caught the eye on seasonal debut over 5f when finding plenty of trouble in running to finish in midfield at Navan in March. Curiously stepped upped to 7f on next start when a well beaten favourite. Worth a market check.

Winner of four of his 27 stars on turf, hitting the frame on a further six occasions. All four victories have come over this trip and could be a big player, slipping in the weights, dropping back to this trip.

More recently seen plying her trade on the AW at Dundalk. Just the one success from 16 starts on turf and needs plenty of improvement to play a role in the finish back on this surface.

Finished 4L behind Haqeeba in a Navan 5f handicap earlier this month off a 1lb higher mark. Repeat of that effort with 3lb claimer back in the plate would herald another bold bid.

Just the sole success from 22 starts on turf, but the gelding has been running well in defeat in a number of starts since March. Behind Haqeeba on latest start and holds strong place claims in this company.

Had returned to the track in decent shape when finishing fifth of 18 at Cork last month before getting off the mark for connections at the sixth time of asking on turf in a Sligo 6f handicap on Tuesday. Open to more improvement.

Four-race maiden who ran well in defeat on handicap debut last month in a Southwell 6f contest beaten 5L behind Termonator. Could be an interesting outsider in first-time blinkers.

Verdict

Given the likely pace of the race, it may pay to keep those drawn in the higher stalls on side. Last time out winner Haqeeba may lead the way, with Ten Joys, in the early stages with a host of 'flashy' types racing around the mare. The initial speed will be an advantage to the likes of the Willie McCreery-trained PESHKOVA who can possibly see off the attentions of Tide Of Time and the enigmatic, Gospies Daughter.
