Held a rating of 90 when in the hands of trainer Brian Meehan last year. Running well in defeat in three starts in the spring but may have needed debut run when disappointing at Galway earlier this month. Others preferred.

Busy season continues with the filly having the fifth start of the month following a solid run when finishing fourth of 16 behind Bigger And Bigger at Fairyhouse on Monday. Can give a good account without posing serious threat to principals.

Forecast

Bashiyr (4/1), Bopedro (5/1), Quizical (6/1), Grandmaster Flash (8/1), Karawaan (10/1), Starlite Dancer (10/1), Massa Lubrense (11/1), Dare To Flare (12/1), Silver Service (14/1), Balefire (14/1), The Game Of Life (16/1), Stormy Tale (20/1), Fastar (20/1), Master Speaker (25/1), Risaalaat (25/1)

Verdict

The Andrew Slattery-trained DARE TO FLARE can take advantage of the conditions here to land a wide open looking handicap. The Dandy Man gelding has finished third of 22 over C&D as well as winning on soft ground at Killarney over a similar trip last month. The hat-trick-seeking Bashiyr for the Dermot Weld yard can emerge as the biggest danger following a win at Galway earlier this month on rain-sodden ground. Stormy Tale and the Joseph O'Brien-trained The Game Of Life can give a good account of themselves.
