Ran well in defeat in a Redcar 1m2f handicap last month finishing third of 14 beaten 1L. Holds a big chance of finally getting off the mark at the 17th attempt.

Just moderate at Leopardstown in October before a couple of dismal efforts at Tipperary and last month at Gowran Park and hard to see her finding the progress required.

Nothing of note in three starts on the Flat when last seen turning out for trainer Dermot Weld. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed but worth a market check on handicap debut.

Winner of three of her 26 turf starts on the Flat, the Jeremy mare has been seen over inadequate trips since April. Likely to appreciate this step back up in trip.

32-race maiden on the Flat. 24 of those defeats coming on turf. Well held on most recent start on the level last month and looks opposable in current form.

Three-race maiden well held on each start since debut run at Roscommon in August. Possibly best watched on debut unless the market suggests otherwise.

Goes well over this trip on the AW at Dundalk and produced a decent effort in a 1m5f handicap at Ayr last month. Usually slow away and appears to have her own ideas on racing.

Down the field on comeback at Clonmel in April before a couple more below-par efforts at Navan and Leopardstown over similar trips. Others look more convincing at this level.

Sole win in 28 starts came at the 2017 Galway festival when landing a soft ground handicap over this trip off a 10lb higher mark. On a long losing run but holds strong place claims in this company.

Off the mark on turf in a Galway soft ground handicap over this trip in October off a 1lb lower mark. Capable of hitting the frame and not to be taken lightly in this heat.

More of frequent visitor to Dundalk on the AW, the Lonhro mare is without success in two starts on turf, including on last start at Leopardstown over 1m in April. Likely to find it tough going here.

Will have disappointed connections in a series of dismal career efforts since making his debut in August. First time hood unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.

Hints of improvement on his most recent start at Dundalk on the AW in April. Requires a chunk of improvement to play a role at the business end of proceedings.

Forecast

Machiavelli (11/2), Phebes Dream (8/1), Millford Sound (8/1), Nuzzles (8/1), Athenry Boy (9/1), Bobby Jean (10/1), St Estephe (10/1), Roses Queen (12/1), Seekamist (12/1), Stander (12/1), High Glory (14/1), Poitin (14/1), Challow (14/1), De Mazzaro (16/1), Loudest Whisper (20/1), Wedding Photo (20/1), Dsoloman (20/1), King Con (20/1), Indian Eye (25/1), Delaire (50/1), She's A Novelty (50/1)

Verdict

Denis Hogan-trained maiden, MACHIAVELLI can get off the mark at the 17th time of asking for connections, his 13th start on turf. The gelding can land the finale' seeing off the attentions of the Conor O'Dwyer-trained, Roses Queen and Cork fifth, Athenry Boy. It would come as no surprise to see Poitin and Wedding Photo hit the frame at a big price.
