Four-race maiden posted a career best effort when finishing second of 14 beaten 3¾L in a Bellewstown 1m4f contest on handicap debut when last seen in August. Yard just two winners here from 53 starters since September.

Five-race maiden, career best effort came on debut in a 7f maiden at this venue 12 months ago. Ran well without getting her head in front in four starts on turf between April and when last seen in June. Interesting on handicap debut.

Off the mark at the eighth time of asking in a claimer over 7f on stable debut before another bold bid on handicap debut late last month. Appears to have every chance stepping up in trip.

Seven-race maiden for trainer Hughie Morrison before getting off the mark for connections at the eighth time of asking over C&D last month off a 10lb lower mark. Another bold show likely but revised mark looks harsh.

Has been running well in maidens without getting her head in front but the string of near misses over the summer. Heavy defeat at Gowran Park last month to overcome.

Ran well in defeat on her third start at this venue when finishing ninth of 13 beaten 5¾L over 7f. Step up in trip and first-time blinkers to suit.

Six-race maiden yet to hit the frame on any of her starts. Already dropped 4lb for dismal handicap debut at Galway last month and others preferred on AW debut.

Daughter of Australia out of a Excellent Art mare. Well held but not disgraced in three career starts to date. More needed on AW debut.

Disappointing efforts in four career starts so far, including a 21L defeat at Listowel when last seen in September. Looks readily opposable on polytrack debut.

Iffraaj colt has shown little or no aptitude in three career starts on the Flat for trainer Mick Halford before only getting as far as the third on stable debut in a Down Royal hurdle earlier this month. Best watched in first-time cheekpieces.

Three-race maiden. Career best effort when finishing fourth of 14 beaten over 7L in a Curragh maiden on soft ground behind the highly thought of Patrick Sarsfield. Lively contender on polytrack and handicap debut.

Eight-race maiden. Appears to be flattered by his second of 16 at Naas last month given a number of heavy defeats either side of the run. Faces a tough ask in this company.

Zoffany gelding who cost €25,000 as a yearling. He is a half-brother to a number of winners. Three poor career efforts have all come at Gowran Park. Plenty to find on handicap and polytrack debut.

First Reserve: Six-race maiden. Well held and never a factor in a couple of starts at this venue previously and appears to have a mountain to climb based on what she has shown so far.

Betting

Forecast

Tartlette (5/4), Pocotaligo (11/2), Easter Orchid (11/2), Kalanoura (13/2), Taliyna (11/1), Bodak (14/1), Never Rains (16/1), Vocal Duke (16/1), Appian Way (16/1), Grinn (20/1), Romantically (25/1), Lighthouse Lady (25/1), Rosy Life (25/1), Is She About (33/1), Johan Parvenue (33/1), Ballydrislane (50/1), Clonard Abbey (66/1)

Verdict

The Ado McGuinness-trained, POCOTALIGO can get back to winning ways her benefiting from a big step up in trip. The Helmet gelding got off the mark at the eighth time of asking in a claimer over 7f on stable debut before another bold bid on handicap debut late last month. The three-year-old can hold off the attentions of the top weight, Easter Orchid for trainer Joseph O'Brien and the Dermot Weld representative Taliyna who was fourth of 14 beaten over 7L in a Curragh maiden on soft ground behind the highly thought of Patrick Sarsfield last month. C&D winner Tartlette is worthy of consideration while, Lighthouse Lady and Never Rains are better than their last runs suggest.
