€100,000 yearling, Shamardal colt. Half-brother to smart 1m2f-1m7f winner Fergus McIver and 7f winner Dariga. Winner on debut at Killarney beating Time Tunnel ½L. Difficult to dismiss given the form of the yard.

Will have disappointed connections in a number of laboured efforts this season but in the right hands to claim a win soon. Trainer boasts a 43% strike rate in this contest in the last eight years winning the contest on three occasions.

Winner of a 7f maiden at Gowran Park on his final start of last season but has found himself out of luck this term. Very much respected for yard who are three from seven in this contest in the last eight years.

Failed to follow up on a pleasing win at Tipperary when losing all chance blowing the start at Limerick last month. Looks to be up against it but no surprise to see an improved run.

Winner of two of his last four starts landing the spoils at Cork and Leopardstown over 1m. Likely to be popular in the market for leading connections.

Won his last two starts for Tom Dascombe in the autumn, but he hasn't beaten many rivals in three starts for current yard this term. Form doesn't warrant support here.

Landed the second of two wins in eight at Naas last week beating four rivals a neck. More needed but requires plenty of respect for trainer/jockey combination among the winners this week.

Disappointed when sent off as joint favourite here on Monday only to finish seventh of 15 beaten 3¾L. Needs to step up here to get involved.

Off the mark at the seventh time of asking for connections at Naas last month. Leading player for respected yard who have saddled two winners from nine runners in the last eight years with a further three hitting the frame.

Forecast

Tauran Shaman (7/2), Cosmic Horizon (9/2), Balefire (6/1), Engles Rock (7/1), Zander (7/1), Leagan Gaeilge (9/1), Insane Bolt (10/1), Frosty Beach (12/1), Giga White (12/1), Aurora Moon (20/1), Gee Rex (20/1), Colfer Me (25/1), Blyton (50/1)

Verdict

FROSTY BEACH for the Dermot Weld yard appears to be improving with every race and can grab a second career win here. The daughter of Footstepinthesand will look to follow up on her win at Naas last month and cement the already solid record of the yard in this contest. Trainer Ger Lyons has a similar strong record in the race landing the spoils with Espere last year and Tony The Gent in 2016 while Sacrificial won for the yard four years ago. Giga White can emerge as the biggest danger with Balefire and Insane Bolt battling for prize money.
