Struggling to add to her sole win in 12 starts since winning at Navan over 1m2f 12 months ago. Likely to need a little more relief from the handicapper before placing any trust in the filly.

Sole win in 17 Flat starts on turf came over C&D in this contest 12 months ago off a 1lb higher mark. Well held in a number of starts since and hard to see where improvement is coming from.

Back to running below his last winning mark following a series of dismal efforts this term. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.

Off the mark for connections at the sixth time of asking at Killarney in July before three defeats over differing distances. Appeared vulnerable off revised mark and others currently preferred.

Failed to land a hat-trick of wins when finishing third of 15 beaten 3¾L in a Roscommon 1m4f handicap on heavy ground earlier this month. Tough ask dropping in trip running 11lb higher than first win in July.

Early promise appears to have leveled out somewhat in a disappointing run at Gowran Park on return to action earlier this month. Liable to find a couple stronger.

Won over 1m1f at Tipperary in April, and has mixed Flat and hurdling since. Well beaten on latest start at the Curragh last month finishing well down the field of 23. Needs a sizable improvement to mix it here.

Not disgraced in six career starts so far since making her debut at Gowran Park in June. Yard in good shape currently and a big run from the filly would not surprise.

Three career wins have all come this season, including a success at Bellewstown in July beating Passing Trade a short-head off a 2lb lower mark. Beaten since but capable of bouncing back if in the mood.

Betting

Forecast

Franklyn (7/4), Divine Approach (6/1), Spruce Meadows (8/1), Highway To Heaven (8/1), Prosecution (9/1), Landing Zone (11/1), Belle Cora (12/1), Vocatus (14/1), Lady Scathach (14/1), Shifted Strategy (14/1), Sky Moon (14/1), Ideal Pal (16/1), Sharp Focus (16/1), High Spec (20/1), Toffee Galore (25/1), Navigate By Stars (28/1), Rock On Seamie (33/1), Cosmic Symbol (100/1), Han Solo (100/1)

Verdict

Winner for the second time on turf at Down Royal last month, SPRUCE MEADOWS can add to the total here to defy an 8lb penalty. The gelding must be caught in the grand form he is currently producing ahead of the likes of potential improver, Belle Cora and recent Roscommon third, Franklyn.
