7/1

Winner of one of his 12 starts on turf for a gelding who has been around the block in terms of trainers in his career. Improved effort latest when a running on third at Limerick and a repeat of that should see him contend.

Second over 1m2f at Navan another solid effort and he remains of some interest having won off higher marks in the past although the drop back to 1m isn't necessarily ideal.

Second three times this season including short head defeat over this trip at Bellewstown latest. 2lb rise not ideal but surely will go well again.

Fifth at Naas latest a step in the right direction but overall moderate 2019 form does little to suggest he is well handicapped despite mark sliding.

In good form in the spring winning at Leopardstown before finishing third and sixth in 18 runner handicaps at Leopardstown and the Curragh. Handicapper has a hold but could still go well.

Improved on debut effort when sixth in a maiden at Down Royal and again stepped forward when back in distance at Bellewstown latest finishing second of 15. Handicap debutant seriously unexposed for red-hot yard.

Not shown enough to be of real interest here in her three 2019 starts and others boast far more obvious claims.

Belatedly improved this season and seeks an unlikely four-timer after wins at Gowran, Limerick and Bellewstown. Handicapper raises the stakes and the draw is restrictive but in too good form to ignore.

Nine-race maiden ran one of his best races so far when second to fair yardstick Mokhalad at Bellewstown over 1m. Each-way potential here.

Ended her three-year-old season with two thirds in very testing conditions over 7f. First race in nine months and at 1m so market may help guide.

Second when last on the level over 1m4f and over fences since but this trip surely on the short side and 1-29 record is also a worry. Jockey booking and recent form are positives.

Almost two years since his lone win in 12 starts and although there have been some fair runs since overall he looks pretty exposed in this company.

Second over 1m4½f at Tipperary in June an improvement and showed it no flash in the pan when off the mark over 1m at Killarney latest. Handicap rises now but more to come and top jockey retains the ride.

Good third in a 1m claiming contest at Killarney (good) on his penultimate start. Struggled upped to an extended 1m1f in a similar race subsequently however.

Won here last August but basically disappointed since and recent 13th of 21 on return left plenty to be desired. Market support would be interesting here.

Only win (1-20) came on the AW at Dundalk in October over a mile from 3lb lower mark. Hasn't exactly been threatening on turf recently and others preferred.

Won three times last winter and although still 0-12 on turf his narrow second over 1m2f at Ayr suggested he can win on the surface soon enough. Genuine contender here.

Betting

Forecast

Scorpion Black (11/2), Passing Trade (6/1), One Cool Poet (7/1), Cyrus Dallin (7/1), Sharp Focus (8/1), Dani's Boy (8/1), Blankiedoodie (9/1), Dance Emperor (9/1), Wild Shot (10/1), Spruce Meadows (12/1), Institution (14/1), Ken's Sam's (14/1), Conamara Handshake (16/1), Treble Cone (16/1), Mona Bell (20/1), Stormy Air (22/1), Emphatic (25/1), Reverberation (25/1), Quinns Red Rose (25/1), Caesar's Comet (25/1), Poetic Light (50/1)

Verdict

A hotly contested race can go the way of recent Killarney winner SHARP FOCUS who is still a very unexposed sort over this sort of trip. Also unexposed but respected is handicap debutant Conamara Handshake for bang-in-form Gavin Cromwell after an improved effort latest. Wild Shot has been thoroughly progressive as a five-year-old and he too merits consideration.
  1. Sharp Focus
  2. Conamara Handshake
