79-11OR: 88C
10/1

Very likable sort but five wins have come over 6f and one over 7f so tackling 1m for the first time in his 40th race is a doubt. Not in good enough form to take a chance with the trip.

Three wins all over 6f-7f so there are doubts over the 1m trip here and after a series of dismal efforts culminating in a last of 12 here latest she's hard to fancy.

Only 1lb higher than May C&D win (good to firm) and his latest moderate showing at Galway can be partly excused given a wide draw. Not ruled out if he can bring his A-game.

6/1

Stable debutant won over 1m1½f off this mark at Gowran last year as well as running well to be sixth in the C&D Irish Cambridgeshire. Well capable here even after a short break and market support would buoy confidence.

Very promising season and stable debut when second at Naas. Things gone awry since for one reason and another but still suspect he's got another big run in him and the jockey booking adds to confidence today.

49-3OR: 80D
6/1

Best effort since Tipperary maiden score last year latest when an excellent 25/1 second of 12 over 1m at Limerick. Only raised 1lb so every chance he can follow that up and make another bold bid.

Well bred son of Dubawi stayed on powerfully to win on debut at Gowran in May but was a shade disappointing next at Killarney in a non-handicap against fair sorts. Opening mark could be generous here for top connections.

12/1

11-race maiden who has looked a little overwhelmed in a number of starts since returning to action in May. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Won twice in late 2017/early '18 for David Loughnane but not really fired for this yard yet through four starts. Never like to rule out runners from this source but she is ultimately hard to fancy.

8/1

Dual AW winner but 0-12 on turf and despite a sliding handicap mark his consistent run of midfield finishes likely to continue here.

Betting

Forecast

Star Quality (4/1), Manqoosh (9/2), Trading Point (5/1), Great Grey (6/1), Lethal Power (6/1), Aussie Valentine (8/1), Massa Lubrense (8/1), Equitant (8/1), St Brelades Bay (10/1), Mutadaawel (10/1), Gee Rex (12/1), Freescape (14/1), Solar Wave (16/1)

Verdict

In a difficult race the best course of action looks to be chancing the completely unexposed handicap-debutant MANQOOSH for the prolific Dermot Weld with his win at Gowran on debut evidence enough to take a chance. A winner off this mark and a proven commodity in big handicaps, Lethal Power is a very interesting runner on his debut for Joseph Murphy. Also shortlisted is May C&D winner Aussie Valentine.
