Ran a career best last time when third of 13 runners at Sligo over the extended 1m2f trip. Back down in trip slightly and that should help his chances. Each-way claims.

Showed very little in his three AW appearances last season, however, looked more promising on her opening turf run last time when he was fourth of 16 runners. Cheekpieces on for first time. One to watch.

Was second of 13 runners at this course over the shorter trip of 7f back in April. Made no impression in the closing stages of his last start here over 1m when ninth of 16. Needs to improve.

Remains a maiden after his seven starts as a two-year-old. His best run last season came when he was third of 14 runners at Dundalk (7f) on the AW. One for shortlist.

Was 8th of 13 runners on his last last at Cork (1m2f) when going off at 100/1 in the betting. Handicap debut today and any market support would be interesting behind him.

Back down in trip after finishing 12th of 21 runners at Leopardstown last month. Still a maiden after five starts and needs to produce a lot more than he has shown so far.

Ran well on debut at Naas (6f) last season when ninth of 20 runners. Since then has shown very little. Taking a step up in trip on handicap debut which makes her an interesting runner.

Ninth of 16 runners at Naas (1m) back in April. Lighty-raced filly who is a maiden after four starts. Needs to be improve on what she has shown so far.

Was sixth of 16 runners at this course over 1m last month where he didn't get a clear run in the home straight. Remains off the same mark so one to consider.

Hasn't looked like being in the frame so far in his three racecourse starts, including when 14th of 16 runners at Naas (1m2f) last time. On his handicap debut today and it will be interesting if there is market support for him.

Well beaten on all three of her starts so far, with her latest run coming at Down Royal (7f) where she was last of 14 runners. On handicap debut and up in trip but hard to make a case for.

Second Reserve. A maiden after four starts so far. Was fourth of 15 runners at Clonmel over the extended 1m1f trip back in April. Needs to bounce back from disappointing effort at Killarney on latest run.

Betting

Forecast

Finding Nero (11/2), Belle Cora (6/1), High Glory (6/1), Olympic Honour (13/2), Red Sole Diva (7/1), Manard (7/1), Spelga (9/1), Faerie Laws (9/1), Grove Gold (10/1), Cosmic Jazz (10/1), All About Maddy (16/1), Charlie Bit Me (16/1), Seafield (16/1), Han Solo (16/1), Fescue (25/1), Paisean (25/1), Vineyard Sound (33/1), The Lady's Bid (33/1), Wicklow Gale (33/1), Nanafullam (66/1)

Verdict

A very competitive handicap with many of these being out of form. MANARD ran well here last month over 1m and the slight step up in trip should be in his favour. He is off the same mark so may be able to take advantage of that. Cosmic Jazz looks interesting on handicap debut where she is taking a step up in trip, while Finding Nero may be able to build on a good third place finish last time out.
