7/2
Won on first start over C&D late last month beating Lachet a nose. Life more difficult off a 3lb higher mark but very much a leading player in this contest.

Won for the first time at this track on just her second start here when beating Dubai Rainbow in a 13-runner field last month off a 2lb lower mark. Could be a lenient rise stepping up in trip.

Scored a quick double at Gowran Park and Leopardstown in June over 7f/1m but has lost way since and was in trouble before unseating rider at the Curragh latest. Makes polytrack debut.

7/1
Tough and genuine sort who has been on the go since April. Traces of a long season starting to show in a couple of recent starts at Listowel and Limerick last month. Capable of a big run on Polytrack debut.

14/1
Lightly raced daughter of Helmet. Had not returned to action in the best form, tailing off in a couple of starts last month following a 12 month break before a resurgent start in first-time Cheekpieces over C&D early last month. More to come.

13/2
Has a record of one win from 14 starts over C&D though the Cape Cross gelding has proceeded to hit the frame on a further five occasions. Continues to run well in defeat and another bold show likely.

25/1
Hasn't won in well over two years but ran with credit in a couple of starts at this track last month. Likely to find one or two better handicapped sorts lurking on a competitive card.

Lily Lily Rose15
Age: 3|  Weight: 9-3| J: C D Hayes| T: A A Howard| OR:  56
13/2
Nine-race maiden, well held on her only start on this surface when finishing 12L ninth of 14 in a two-year-old maiden 12 months ago. Needs to take a big step forward on what she has shown in her most recent starts on turf.

10/1
10-race maiden. 10th of 14 beaten 8L on first start on this surface in a 7f handicap last month on his sixth start for current connections. Form doesn't warrant support here.

Suntory Times33

9/1
Eight-race maiden but has run well at this track in the past including when hitting the frame in a couple of starts from five runs over C&D. Can give a good account without posing serious threat to principals.

25/1
Zebedee gelding. Well beaten and no impression in four dismal career starts so far. Difficult to make a case for on Polytrack debut.

20/1
Well tried on this course but has only appeared on one occasion over C&D, finishing third of nine runners, 3½L behind Elysees Palace in March 2018. Could go well at a price.

6/1
Below-par four race maiden well beaten in three starts since returning to action in April. Needs to step up on efforts over the summer to play a part on polytrack debut.

Hit the frame on one occasion from three visits to the venue but overall form looks pretty patchy for the 11-race maiden. First-time cheekpieces unlikely to work their magic.

Forecasts

Lady In Lavender (7/2), Happaugue (6/1), Lily Lily Rose (13/2), Mulzamm (13/2), Solomons Seal (7/1), Scream (8/1), Suntory Times (9/1), Prime Chief (10/1), Waitaki (10/1), Raffaello (12/1), Khazix (12/1), Lady Boomerang (14/1), Northern Surprise (16/1), Dayereh (20/1), Stringr (25/1), Heir of Excitement (25/1), Me Well (33/1)

Verdict

A slowly run race is possible with little or no pace on up front. The lack of early speed will suit LADY IN LAVENDER who won on first start over C&D late last month beating Lachet a nose off a 3lb lower mark. The five-year-old can hold off the attentions of the Shane Duffy-trained Scream, a winner of a 7f claimer at this track last month. Lily Lily Rose and the Denis Hogan-trained, C&D winner, Mulzamm can compete for the minor honours while the mare, Dayereh could go well at a price.
