Twice a winner this summer and generally consistent since so her disappointing effort at Listowel latest was surprising. Capable of bounce back to make the frame.

Only won once in 25 starts and having not made the frame in the last three he's one to oppose even in first-time blinkers.

Maiden ran a really sound race to finish third at Gowran last time out on what was his handicap debut. Upped from 1m here and highly respected now with possibility of more to come.

14lb higher than when winning 1m handicap at Gowran in September but again ran well last time out over 7f and surely this trip given she's won over hurdles could bring about improvement; respected.

Won a 1m2f Ffos Las handicap on stable debut before flopping back on home soil over 1m latest. Only raised 5lb for the win so last race too bad to be true; bounce back possible.

Handicap debutant of interest as his maidens were worn by such Group performers as Il Paradiso, Sir Dragonet and Sydney Opera House. Could be handily treated and of interest here after the break.

12-race maiden seems regressive based on last couple of starts and is hard to fancy here on balance.

Maiden ran really well on handicap debut at the Curragh (third of 24) but failed to back that up after a slow start and trouble in running at Gowran. That can be forgiven so one of the more interesting unexposed sorts.

15-race maiden who has failed to hit the frame in four Flat starts on turf. Hasn't looked like a winner in waiting in a number of recent starts.

Seven-time winner ran some good races in an inconsistent campaign but given he hasn't won since August 2016 there are more appealing alternatives.

Daughter of Morpheus out of a Green Desert mare. Four-race maiden in France not seen for 13 months. Best watched on Irish and Stable debut.

Recently seen suffering heavy defeats over hurdles the daughter of Silver Frost had previously failed to hit the frame in six dismal efforts on the Flat. Still looking no nearer to breakthrough success.

Nothing of note in a number of career starts so far. Down the pack again at Galway latest and others bring more compelling claims.

Slight improvement latest when ninth of 24 at the Curragh but never better than sixth in a race at this stage so easily opposed again.

1m Navan maiden winner struggling of late after originally looking like she could handle the revised handicap mark. Bit to prove now.

Forecast

Final Endeavour (11/10), Calonne (3/1), Mother Vincent (7/1), Light Breeze (7/1), Lady In Lavender (8/1), Lightsider (9/1), Bodak (9/1), Cj Cregg (10/1), Oakmont (10/1), Sarah Jessica (14/1), Vocal Duke (16/1), Dance Emperor (16/1), Marwari (16/1), Griffyndor (20/1), Castle Guest (20/1), Mixed Media (33/1), Silvretta Schwarz (33/1), War Anthem (150/1), Rule The Sea (150/1)

Verdict

A weak but wide-open contest this and the sort to take a flier in. In-form Sheila Lavery's handicap debutant LIGHTSIDER has an absence to overcome but having met Group One horses earlier this campaign he could improve massively for this huge class drop. Others with likable claims include Lady In Lavender and Calonne.
  1. Lightsider
  2. Lady In Lavender
  3. Calonne
