Runner-up off 1lb higher at Cork in April, and respectable efforts since, most recently when 2½ lengths fourth of 7 to Turnberry Isle at Ballinrobe. Place claims again, but needs to pull out more to win.

Below form since finishing a close fifth at Cork in April, albeit not disgraced at Killarney on penultimate start, Stiff task last time, but others readily preferred once more.

Progressing well since returned to turf in May, winning at Naas on his penultimate start, and finishing with a rattle when third of 9 to Claim The Lady there last time. One to keep on side in current vein of form.

Winning for the third time when scoring over 1¼m at Navan on penultimate start, but she proved rather disappointing when favourite at Gowran next time, finishing weakly. Only her very best will do off a career-high mark.

Made all in the mud at Roscommon in June, but that form hasn't worked out, and she has struggled to make much of an impact since, including over hurdles. Needs a little more help from the handicapper.

Plenty of placed form in maidens, and at least as good as ever when head second of 7 to Defining Battle in a 1m3f handicap at Killarney last time. Not straightforward, but did little wrong last time.

Has winning form at 6f, but has improved for longer trips on last two starts, and did well to finish second to the progressive Turnberry Isle at Ballinrobe (1m1½f) last time after a slow start. Not easily dismissed.

C&D winner who ran poorly at Galway, but had finished in the frame on his six handicap outings prior to that, so isn't one to discount on the back of a single effort.

Betting

Forecast

Elite Trooper Grey (11/4), Happy Company (9/2), Charcor (11/2), Edification (13/2), Spiorad Saoirse (13/2), Takeachancejimmy (7/1), Maricruz (10/1), Stormy Tale (12/1)

Verdict

EDIFICATION finished best when third at Naas last time, and is building up a solid profile for his current yard. He shades the verdict from consistent maiden Elite Trooper Grey, with Takeachancejimmy and Happy Company others to consider in a competitive race of its type.
