7/1

Winner of four of her last six starts including both races this summer and latest win in a 15-runner Killarney handicap over 1m suggested that even a 7lb hike here will not stop her from making a very bold bid for the hat-trick.

Won once as a two-year-old for Hugo Palmer but bowed out with best effort since when second over 1m½f at Beverley off this mark earlier in the month. Interesting sort here and the market a guide.

Raised 3lb for her win over 7f penultimately she went close to following up over 1m1½f at Gowran last month. Arrives as a filly on the up then and very much one for the shortlist.

Won twice last year as a two-year-old but has been unable to hit the frame in six handicap attempts this season. Was sixth of seven last time at Ayr. Down the weights again but others are preferred here.

Off the mark at the 13th time of asking latest in a 5½f Navan maiden but the biggest concern today is the 7f trip given he looked a non-stayer in his only previous try.

Kempton win last December his lone success in 21 starts and recent efforts suggest him unlikely to take advantage of a tumbling mark.

Lower mark now than his Curragh win last year but that due to four uncompetitive efforts in 2019 and he isn't easy to fancy here.

1m Cork win off a 2lb lower mark in May his lone success for Ger Lyons. Starts out for new and red-hot yard here but in-form Calling Time looks stable first string.

Up 7lb for Limerick win over 1m latest which followed a couple of good runs to start this season. Handicapper not been generous but he remains open to improvement and therefore must be respected here.

11-race maiden but comes here on the back of three excellent seconds over 6f and 6½f and surely her time will come. 1lb lower than at Limerick latest and has very strong claims here.

Won one of his 23 races for John Ryan so probably best watched here on Irish debut for new connections.

Winning for the first time on turf when successful by a nose over an extended 6f at Limerick (good) earlier this month. Raised 3lb for that victory she finished sixth of 14 at Leopardstown latest but could so better here and make the frame.

7f Gowran winner on testing conditions in the spring but struggled since and sixth of eight to Calling Time at Roscommon hardly hinted she likely to reverse the form here.

Looks to be living up to his name based on two three-year-old races and latest second over 6½f at Limerick suggests a first win imminent. More to come here and certainly one for the shortlist.

First Reserve- Won an ordinary contest at Sligo over 6f but that remains his only success to date. Form in handicaps suggests current mark plenty and others make greater appeal.

Betting

Forecast

Improving (5/1), Engles Rock (5/1), Syrena (7/1), Cruella Dovil (7/1), Calling Time (7/1), Fancy Footings (8/1), Sunset Nova (12/1), Pepperoni Pete (14/1), Deira Surprise (16/1), Njord (16/1), Silver Service (16/1), Galtee Mist (20/1), Beleaguerment (20/1), Lord Rapscallion (20/1), Facethepuckout (22/1), Lumsden (25/1), Segenhoe (25/1), Evasive Power (33/1)

Verdict

It is worth staying on the right side of the hugely progressive CALLING TIME as she bids for a hat-trick even with another hike in the handicaps. Colin Keane's mount Cruella Dovil is knocking ever louder at the door and looks sure to go close again as does Improving whose second latest suggests he too can get off the mark soon.
