Won on seasonal return at Dundalk (7f) and has returned to form lately with two impressive course outings. Runner-up over C&D two starts back before getting his head back in front over the extended 5f last time. Up 10lb but should go well again.

Just one win from 22 starts and that came on AW at Dundalk. Has run okay in defeat in his two starts for this yard and he still lurks on a dangerous mark. Slight drop in trip should help.

Dual C&D winner who was in fine form throughout last season. Back below her last winning handicap mark now but recent form hasn't suggested a return to the winners' enclosure is near. Wears first-time tongue-tie.

Just one win from 27 starts and while he ran okay over C&D on his seasonal reappearance, he's gone off the boil subsequently. Hard to fancy at present.

In good form throughout last season and ran okay in his first couple of starts at Dundalk this year. Not at his best back at that venue last time but only 3lb higher than his last winning handicap mark and first-time blinkers may spark a revival.

A maiden after 10 starts but has gone close in three of his four runs this season (unseated rider on other start). Finishing effort not always the strongest but likely to get his head in front sooner rather than later and left on same mark here.

Won a competitive handicap on seasonal reappearance last year but struggled to build on that effort and well beaten on his return here last time out. Lurks on a dangerous mark and not one to rule out at present.

A maiden after five starts and hasn't improved for the switch to handicaps. Last seen finishing 15 of 21 here in April but handicapper trying to give him a chance, dropping him 5lb for that effort. Wears first-time visor.

Yet to score in her six starts but it was a much improved effort at Leopardstown last time when outrunning odds of 100/1 to finish fifth of 12. May have more to come on just her third start for this yard.

Well beaten in a trio of maiden efforts. Needs to improve for the drop back in trip on handicap debut here and interesting to see what the market makes of her chance.

Hasn't won on turf since 2016 and looks to be regressing in three starts for this outfit. Well beaten ninth of 10 at Sligo last time and has plenty to prove at present.

Yet to win in nine starts but did go close over an extended 5f here in October. That was on similar ground and she may have needed her comeback run in April. Each-way player.

Yet to win in 14 starts and well beaten on yard debut last time out here. Her better form has come on AW and she looks opposable in a race this competitive.

Beaten out of sight on all six of her starts including when only beating one home in a 14 runner race at Dundalk last time. Wears first-time tongue-tie; others preferred.

Shown virtually nothing in nine starts and beaten a long way in four AW outings this year. Very hard to make a case for.

Five-race turf maiden showed plenty of promise on return to action at Sligo last month finishing third of 13 beaten 2½L over 6f. Not always quickest away though and wouldn't want to miss the break here.

Betting

Forecast

Gopsies Daughter (9/2), Takeachancejimmy (9/2), Teddy Boy (5/1), Art Of Unity (6/1), Brave Display (10/1), Blastofmagic (10/1), Bonnie Park (12/1), Straffan (12/1), Face Off (14/1), Early Call (14/1), Cozy Sky (14/1), Lewandowski (14/1), Kodiqueen (20/1), Speirling Ophelia (20/1), Bluesbreaker (33/1), Gala N Dandy (50/1), Rockafilly (50/1), Mystical Affair (50/1)

Verdict

Eddie Lynam does well with his sprinters and it might be worth taking a chance on TEDDY BOY who has been rather leniently left on the same mark by the handicapper for a good performance last time out. Art Of Unity appeals as well-handicapped while Takeachancejimmy showed enough last time to suggest he might not be far away here.
