First start since being gelded when finishing 5L fourth in a 1m2f handicap at Navan (good-to-yielding) a week ago. Interesting racing off a 3lb lower mark in this contest.
Well beaten in three starts this season and handicap mark is falling as a result. Market support would be notable off a mark 16lb lower than for his most recent victory.
Returning from a break when winning over this trip on soft ground at Roscommon earlier this week. Tongue tie worn for the first time that day is retained and she is one for the shortlist following a 5lb rise in the weights.
Ran well to finish third in a 2m handicap at Navan (good-to-yielding) on Flat return recently. Drop in trip unlikely to inconvenience too much on just his sixth Flat start.
Placed on each of his last three starts including when third over 1m2f at Navan (good-to-yielding) a week ago. Step up in trip no issue and holds strong claims once more.
Promising third in a soft ground 1m maiden at this venue in April. Struggled on handicap debut last time out however and market support would be notable upped in trip.
Well beaten on handicap and seasonal debut over an extended 1m4f at Tipperary (soft) earlier this month. Probably best watched at present.
Ran well when finishing 2L fourth over this trip at Roscommon (soft) five days ago. Races off the same mark here and cheekpieces tried for the first time.
Improved on debut for this yard when finishing third over an extended 1m1f at Gowran Park (good-to-firm) last time out. Shapes as if this step up in distance will suit.
Failed to beat a rival home in two starts this campaign including when 15L ninth over an extended 1m1f at Gowran Park (good) last time out. Tongue tie tried for the first time stepping up in distance.
Good third over 1m4f on the AW at Dundalk on his penultimate start. Well beaten over the same C&D subsequently however and is making his first start in nearly two months.
