16 race maiden finished a fair 4L eighth on seasonal debut at The Curragh (1m, good-to-firm) last time out. Met trouble in running that day and is of interest on this occasion.

Decent fifth over 1m2f on seasonal debut here last month. Drop in trip no issue and market support would be notable on this occasion.

Placed on both starts this campaign including when beaten a head over 1m at Listowel (yielding) earlier this month. Interesting despite a 1lb rise in the weights.

Improved form when finishing a close third over an extended 1m1f at Gowran Park (good) earlier this month. Represents a top yard and is a leading player once more.

Seven race maiden has struggled in two handicaps and a claimer on her last three starts. Probably best watched with visor tried for the first time.

Dual winner at Gowran Park this season including by a neck over 1m on her penultimate start. Good neck second at Listowel (7f, yielding) last time out and looks likely to play a leading role.

Beaten a minimum of 10½L in three 1m maiden starts last month. Market support would be notable with useful jockey in the saddle on handicap debut.

Promising debut in a 5f maiden at Navan (good-to-firm) in July last year. Disappointing in two subsequent starts however. Hood tried for the first time upped in trip on handicap debut following a break.

Betting

Forecast

Red Sole Diva (7/2), Ideal Pal (5/1), Shamad (7/1), Cork Harbour (7/1), Meryems Way (8/1), Never Rains (9/1), Pari Passu (9/1), Voyageofdiscovery (10/1), Gizi Gazelle (10/1), Queen Mia (16/1), Fiannaiocht (16/1), Overheer (16/1), Kody Ridge (20/1), Nanafullam (25/1), Neyland (25/1), Letmebreeze (25/1), Sharp Focus (25/1), Puddymore (33/1), Ally Cay (33/1), Mooborak (33/1), Long Wood (33/1)

Verdict

MERYEMS WAY has shown good form of late and with further improvement likely she is taken to register a victory in division one of this competitive handicap. The selection looks capable of getting the better of Voyageofdiscovery who has placed on both starts this season while third place can go to Red Sole Diva who hails from a top yard.
  1. Meryems Way
  2. Voyageofdiscovery
  3. Red Sole Diva
