4/1

Missed all of 2018 and best run this campaign was his fourth after a break in a Listed contest at Cork at the start of the month. Failed to build to on that when disappointing in valuable handicap at Ascot and bit to prove now.

Consistent handicapper who showed he belongs in this company when splitting Pincheck and Amadeo Modigliani at Cork at start of the month over 1m. This drop down a furlong is ideal and should play a part on his preferred ground.

Finished just ahead of five of today's rivals when second Cork Listed race but beaten at Newmarket since and this his first run at shorter that 1m since his juvenile days. Cheek pieces now go on.

8/1

Bit better when switched to front running tactics last time but ultimately only fourth in that Group 3 at Tipperary and suspicion remains that he isn't quite at the level he was in 2018.

7f specialist and the more rain the better but winning Haydock handicap off mark of 89 on penultimate run was his best effort and that needs improving upon in this better class contest.

Off the mark finally in 7f Fairyhouse maiden on soft ground and ran as well as her 66/1 odds suggested she could when behind some of these rivals at Cork and needs to find a bit more to reverse that form.

Landed a Roscommon handicap off mark of 83 early last month on similar ground but efforts either side of that have been below that level and hard to fancy stepping up to Listed class on recent evidence.

Gowran win on debut in June but although her fourth at Listowel was a decent effort has been found out in this company so far and needs to improvement to trouble the best of these.

Forecast

Pincheck (2/1), Laughifuwant (9/4), Amedeo Modigliani (4/1), Psychedelic Funk (8/1), Finoah (14/1), Come September (16/1), Myth Creation (25/1), Thiswaycadeaux (28/1)

Verdict

The 1m Cork Listed race won by Up Helly Aa at the start of the month looks the race that holds the key to this and although LAUGHIFUWANT was just behind Pinstripe on that occasion, this drop down to 7f may help him turn the form around. Amadeo Modigliani ran poorly when fancied for Ascot handicap a week ago and isn't easy to assess but may reach the frame here.
