Won a 1m2f handicap and 1m Listed race at the Curragh this season before flopping back in a handicap latest off a career-high mark. Be some performance off top-weight here.

Placed off a similar mark last season but only made the track once so far this season and under-performed so others more compelling.

Four-time winner ran well two starts back but is 0-11 from a three-figure mark so off 100 here others probably better treated.

In good form since joining this yard (two wins and two seconds). Arrives 8lb higher today than when winning at Limerick in June over 1m but can't be ignored given sudden progress.

Seeks a hat-trick after wins at Killarney (1m) and Ballinrobe (1m1½f) the last twice. Is somehow 1lb lower today than the latest of those two so has to feared despite this being an awful lot tougher.

Sole success so far came in a 7f maiden at Tipperary (soft-to-heavy) in September last year. Well held in four starts since joining this stable. Blinkers now tried.

Fourth in a similarly valuable 1m2f handicap at Leopardstown latest and with 1lb back and first-time blinkers there is cause for optimism once again here.

Won a 1m Limerick maiden followed by a valuable 7f Curragh handicap and had several of these behind at the Curragh again latest when second in an other big handicap. Same mark today and is highly appealing even in such a big field.

Well held at Leopardstown (Listed) and Limerick (Handicap) recently. Looks in the grip of the handicapper based on the balance of his runs this season.

Fifth in the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot latest and back off his 9lb lower domestic mark here he rates a leading contender based on his Listed third at Dundalk in March.

UK raider not exactly prolific but arrives on a 1lb lower mark than when third the last twice in his homeland so merits respect here and jockey booking a positive.

Behind Jassaar the last twice although got a great deal closer last time. ¾L to make up today on the same terms and given he was a little unlucky latest there is every chance he can turn the tables; leading player.

Has several pieces of form this season to suggest him a real player and while others probably hold stronger claims he makes some each-way appeal.

Seven-time winner running quite respectably in the UK this season in similarly competitive contests although not doing enough to suggest him a leading player.

Had a host of these when winning at Leopardstown over 1m2f last season so a 3lb rise looks very lenient especially considering he had won the time before at Navan. Very realistic claims.

Good second on return but nothing since and a mile behind Aussie Valentine latest so comes with a great deal of risk now.

Neck second to Magnetic North latest and has also been second to Aussie Valentine this season. Can't rule her out with handicap still within range for red-hot trainer.

Betting

Forecast

Numerian (9/2), Onlyhuman (9/2), Jassaar (5/1), Saltonstall (9/1), Magnetic North (9/1), Rufus King (10/1), Innamorare (12/1), Turnberry Isle (12/1), Hamley (14/1), Quizical (16/1), Baraweez (16/1), Marshall Jennings (25/1), Trading Point (25/1), Insignia Of Rank (25/1), Aussie Valentine (33/1), Zabriskie (50/1), Allegio (50/1), Wee Jim (66/1)

Verdict

Dermot Weld can further his already legendary status at this meeting by plundering this valuable contest with JASSAAR whose efforts in big handicaps the last twice have been impeccable especially given he remains off the same mark today as his latest second. The most feared rivals are Numerian who ran well at Royal Ascot latest after a layoff and Saltonstall who has very little to find with Jassaar based on their clash last time out.
