21:00 Killarney Wed 17 July 2019
Very consistent in six runs this season, finishing in the money on previous four starts. Finds winning hard (2-30) but in good form and should be competitive from this mark.
Off the mark for connections over hurdles at the fifth time of asking when landing a Kilbeggan handicap hurdle over 2m last month. 0-8 previously on the Flat but on fair mark and no shock to see him competitive.
Just 3lb above Cork winning-mark (1m3f) from May, has run a couple of solid races lately and certainly merits consideration for honours in this line-up.
Sea The Stars filly, well held in trio of outings so far in maidens, goes up in distance now handicapping and not the greatest surprise should she improve on form.
Heavy-ground winner at Clonmel in May 2018 for a previous trainer, has struggled in low-grade AW handicaps in Britain recently before being pulled up over hurdles at Roscommon last month. Hard to trust.
Sole success from 18 career starts came over a mile in apprentice handicap at this venue last August (rated 52 at the time). Stays this far, though form this year lacks consistency.
Mare hasn't shown enough in seven-race interrupted career to merit selection, though her recent Limerick effort over a mile was more like and she may build on that.
14-race maiden having mixed the Flat and hurdling to little effect. Back from a break and returns to this code with handicapper having relented somewhat.
Hard to fancy on overall evidence for Jessica Harrington and this trainer so far. Needs a big step forward.
Kodiac colt, unplaced so far in six starts, races beyond 7f for the first time here, so interesting to see if any improvement is forthcoming.
Mare has started huge prices in five Flat starts previously and never able to threaten; 2019 form over hurdles has done little to improve prospects. Easily bypassed.
Nine-race maiden, finished last of nine (beaten 20L) when attempting this trip for the first time at Tipperary recently. Hard to make a case for here.
Twice won on the AW in Britain last year, though has found things tough since over hurdles and on Flat. Will have to improve if getting in (First Reserve).
Hurdles winner last summer but has lost way and three-race Flat career leave plenty to be desired (Third Reserve).
