Early season encouragement has leveled out of late and the veteran now races 27lb lower than last winning mark. Capable of a big run but likely to find one or two stronger.

Six-race maiden without a win in four starts on turf. First time cheekpieces required to inspire improvement. Pilot without a win in six starts this term.

Solid and consistent form in a number of starts since May including finishing third of 13 beaten 3L at Down Royal last month. Rider among the winners recently at Bellewstown.

Winner of three starts this term. all at a mile. Can be forgiven latest run at Killarney when finishing 13th of 15 and has experienced pilot in the saddle.

Going nowhere quickly at present, beaten out of sight last three starts and although he might be a bit fitter here, still very hard to fancy with rider two from 46 rides this term.

Nothing of note or encouragement in three dismal career starts to date. Well beaten 25L on latest start at Killarney last month when sent off at 100/1 before running accordingly. Others preferred.

Off the mark for connections at the 17th time of asking on her ninth start on turf when winning over C&D on good ground last month off a 3lb lower mark. Well held at Down Royal since and others hold stronger claims.

12-race maiden on turf but has been running well in defeat in a couple of starts since returning to action at Gowran Park last month. Quickly turned out following her third of 15 beaten 1L at Gowran Park on Tuesday. Leading contender.

Running with plenty of consistency in a number of starts since May. Fifth of 17 at Gowran Park last month. Hold up tactics in big runner fields usually spell trouble for the Sir Prancealot mare.

Has shown very little in her four starts so far. She was 14th of 18 last time at Galway in October over the extended 1m trip. Likely to need this run on return to action in this contest.

Dismal efforts in a couple of starts this term well held at Ballinrobe in July before a 17L defeat at Roscommon last month. Plenty to prove at present.

Modest 83-rated handicapper hurdler of late. Not seen on the level since taking his losing run to five on turf at Killarney over 12 months ago. Will need to raise overall profile to play a role here.

Early season promising has dampened a little in a number of defeats since July. Needs to improve on even his best form to worry the leading contenders in this event.

Hints of improvement on his fourth career start at Gowran Park last month, but hard to fancy here in first-time tongue tie. Others hold sturdier claims.

First Reserve: Beaten over 9L on latest start, seven-race maiden yet to hit the frame in five starts on turf. Improvement needed if getting a run.

Forecast

Mountain Fox (7/2), Summer's Dream (9/2), Arcland (9/2), Rule The Sea (5/1), Lady Rosebud (13/2), Quite Subunctious (7/1), Coolbawn Magic (7/1), Musalsal (10/1), National Identity (10/1), Lady Scathach (12/1), Castle Guest (14/1), Cosmic Jazz (16/1), Magi Gal (25/1), Doi Suthep (25/1), Survival Mode (25/1), Cache Queen (25/1), Alpine Peak (33/1), Casting Call (33/1), Hattie Amarin (33/1), Quare Lucky (33/1), Botanical Lady (33/1), Ifyouhaveaminute (33/1), Dingle Bay (50/1)

Verdict

The Tim Doyle-trained, SUMMER'S DREAM is taken to get off the mark at the 13th time of asking following a number of promising efforts since May. Beaten 1L when third of 15 at Gowran Park on Tuesday, the filly can make the quick return a winning one at the expense of recent Tipperary winner, Rule The Sea, the solid and consistent Lady Rosebud and the reliable performer, Mountain Fox. If in the mood, the Adrian McGuinness-trained, Cache Queen can go well at a price.
