7f Roscommon score latest her third in her last five starts and also a first win on turf. Handicapper raises the stakes again but she's clearly progressive and highly respected here.

Six-race maiden ran really well on handicap debut three races ago when third of 18 but has disappointed twice since including in a claimer latest. Now has a bit to prove.

Gowran Park winner earlier in the season and fourth of 18 at Navan latest (Rehoboth Beach third). 2lb less now and has sound claims once again with that a boost to his credentials.

Dundalk winner in November but not really inspired since and only placed once in eight turf races so far. Risky proposition overall.

Second for the third time latest over 1m1f at Tipperary where he led until 50 yards from home. A repeat of that effort particularly over 1f shorter gives him very sound claims here although an extra 3lb and stall 17 are negatives.

Fourth over 1m1f at Tipperary his best effort for some time although was two places behind Imposing Supreme there. Same handicap mark here so reversal is possible but his overall profile is somewhat inconsistent.

Found a good deal of improvement on handicap debut at Navan latest over 1m2f where she ran out of steam late and eventually was third of 16. Drop to 1m ought to suit well now and a rise of 2lb not enough to rule her out here.

Three-race maiden outran 66/1 odds latest when fourth of 15 and may be stepping into handicaps at the right time given that was an improved effort. Market can guide here.

Never really threatened in three maidens and although handicaps may help he looks to have done little to earn such an opening mark.

Third at Bellewstown latest was her best effort to date albeit she was very comfortably held. Gets 2lb back today which helps and she has claims of a repeat placing now although others more compelling overall.

Didn't seem to quite stay 1m in lone previous try although latest effort when staying on for fourth over 6½f suggested she wanted further. Worth another go at 1m here and not totally ruled out.

Sixth of 16 at Tipperary latest comfortably his best race to date although he must progress again if to make the frame for the first time.

Does have some nice pieces of form on her CV but arrives after lacklustre efforts at Naas and Tipperary the last twice so does come with a fair amount of risk here.

Modest late progress into ninth of 18 over 7f latest having run a similar race over 1m the time before. Cheekpieces added in attempt to sharpen her up in the early stages now.

Fifth of 16 at Naas in April suggested for the first time that he was a horse capable of winning races but took a backwards step after a break latest at Bellewstown. Could do better now second time after the layoff.

Forecast

Calling Time (5/1), Njord (6/1), Alice Milligan (7/1), A Step Too Far (7/1), Tracing (8/1), Able Dealer (8/1), Imposing Supreme (12/1), Queen Guanhumara (12/1), Rehoboth Beach (14/1), Asanda (16/1), Vhagar (18/1), Jered Maddox (20/1), Der Mc (25/1), Shamarouski (33/1), Rudisha (40/1), Never Rains (N/A), Bendzonic (N/A), Come Back And Stay (N/A)

Verdict

Although burdened with top-weight now CALLING TIME can continue her excellent run of form for Jessica Harrington with her win last time over 7f suggesting there may yet be more to come. Njord ran well enough last time to be rated also a leading contender and back at 1m Alice Milligan also must be taken seriously.
