39-7OR: 105

Maiden winner at Thurles as a juvenile. Looked unlucky on reappearance when runner-up at Cork but won well in a Group 3 at the Curragh last time. More progress likely up in trip and a live player if handling this softer ground.

39-2OR: 100

Won a handicap at Naas towards the end of last year but well beaten by re-opposing stablemate Constantinople at the Curragh last month and will do well to turn that form around, despite a bit of help at the weights. Up in trip.

39-2OR: 100

Won three times last year but not at his best in three Pattern level starts this time around. Hasn't been suited by testing conditions in the past and has enough questions to answer in a race this competitive.

39-0OR: 98

Carrier best effort when only narrowly denied at Redcar on fast ground last month. 1lb out of the handicap that day and may have more to give despite a 5lb rise in the weights at this new trip.

39-0OR: 98

Won twice last year including a Listed race at Salisbury but has failed to beat a rival hom on his last three starts. Up in trip and eased in grade but very much opposable at present.

38-13OR: 97BF

Won a 16 runner maiden on second start for this yard at Windsor and only narrowly failed to get up at Newbury last month on handicap debut. 8lb higher here and needs to improve for the step up in trip.

38-12OR: 96

Beaten favourite three times as a juvenile but has improved from two to three-years-old, winning both starts this term. Useful yardstick in second last time out at Sandown and may have more to give up in trip if he handles conditions here.

38-12OR: 96

Gained two wins either side of the winter and only beaten 1L (Sinjaari second) at Newbury last time. A return to more testing ground should suit and capable of going well with more progress on the cards. De Sousa prefers Fox Premier though.

38-11OR: 95

Improved from debut to win a Sandown maiden but that form hasn't worked out so well and he was beaten a long way out in the Dante last time; has a bit to prove on handicap debut here.

Last RunWatch last race

38-11OR: 95BFD

Bolted up at Windsor on return and won in similar fashion at York next time out. Possibly caught out by the trip last time at Doncaster so a return to this distance should suit; unproven on this ground though.

Last RunWatch last race

38-10OR: 94

Winner on sole start as a juvenile but only runner-up in two conditions' races this time around. Can be slowly away and has to prove he can be as effective on this ground.

38-10OR: 94D

Plenty of promise in two runs as a juvenile and won well at Ripon on his return in April. Won with plenty in hand at Haydock last month despite a slow start and rates as an interesting contender if he handles these conditions.

38-10OR: 94

Winner on debut at Salisbury but beaten a long way in two runs at Pattern level on his last couple of starts. Opening handicap mark demands much more.

Last RunWatch last race

38-9OR: 93BF

Brought down on reappearance but no worse for that when winning at Naas and that form done a favour by the second finishing runner-up in the Queen's Vase. Stayed on well for second last time and should be suited by the step up in to 1m4f.

Last RunWatch last race

38-8OR: 92D

Improved from debut to win by 7L at Haydock and not seen to best effect at Lingfield last time in the Derby Trial. Too soon to write him off but the assessor hasn't taken any chances with his mark for handicap debut.

Last RunWatch last race

38-7OR: 91

Left his previous form behind when bolting up at Ripon on third start but would need plenty more to play a part at this level from his opening handicap mark.

38-7OR: 91D

Improving steadily with each run, beaten 6L by Sir Ron Priestley on reappearance but entitled to need that run (first start since wind op) and has won two four-runner events well since. Unproven on soft ground.

38-7OR: 91

Didn't show much as a juvenile but bolted up on his reappearance at Leopardstown on soft ground. Third next time out at Naas (South Pacific second) but he's another proven on the ground and should appreciate a step up in trip.

Last RunWatch last race

38-6OR: 90

Only found one too good on AW starts either side of the winter before bolting up in a Newbury maiden next time out. Failed to build on that in handicap company though and that leaves him needing more.

Betting

Forecast

Constantinople (9/2), Sir Ron Priestley (11/2), Sinjaari (6/1), Questionare (11/1), Good Birthday (11/1), Fox Premier (11/1), Almania (14/1), Summer Moon (18/1), South Pacific (18/1), Great Example (20/1), Babbo's Boy (20/1), Eminence (22/1), Antilles (22/1), Majestic Dawn (25/1), Severance (25/1), Kaloor (33/1), Persian Moon (33/1), Leroy Leroy (40/1), Kuwait Currency (66/1)

Verdict

A tricky race to end day three but SOUTH PACIFIC has shaped as if he's crying out for this step up in trip and the form of his win from Leopardstown received a timely boost here on Wednesday. He's closely matched with Eminence on the form of their Naas run last time and he gets similar positives to his aforementioned stablemate. Sir Ron Priestley has won well on both his recent starts and could go well if he handles the ground.
