Four-race maiden well held on sole start over C&D in September on last but one start for trainer Aiden O'Brien. One of two runners on the card tonight for trainer in the embryonic stages of his career.

Running with plenty of credit in a couple of starts last month over C&D including a career best effort for the eight-race maiden finishing second of 14 beaten ½L. Can be expected to improve.

Four-race maiden. All starts coming over C&D where the colt has proceeded to hit the frame on tow occasions including on handicap debut last month. Well worth a place on the shortlist.

Beaten but not disgraced in a number of starts on turf and on the polytrack surface here since October. Needs a few to falter.

Hints of promise in three maiden starts since June before a dismal effort on handicap debut at the Curragh over 6f when last seen in September. Market likely to reveal expectations on polytrack debut.

Six-race maiden. Well held and never a factor on last couple of appearances for trainer Adam West. One of three runners at the track this evening for a yard who boast a 25% strike rate here in the first two weeks of the year since 2016.

By no means disgraced in a couple of recent starts over C&D finishing fourth of 14 beaten 4¼L last month the best of them. More progress possible and not dismissed.

Forecast

Flower Garland (3/1), Jm Barrie (9/2), Bolly Bullet (5/1), Eglish (6/1), Johan The Great (8/1), Laurel Grove (8/1), Dazzling Darren (8/1), Funny Little Ways (16/1), Varna Gold (16/1), Saphiri (20/1), Dame Rapide (20/1), Absolute One Right (20/1), Buachaill Or (25/1), Cap D'antibes (33/1), Little Brother (33/1), Kosman (40/1), Ossco (40/1)

Verdict

It pays to be on the front end around here over this trip which bodes well for the likes of Flower Garland for trainer Donnacha O'Brien and Varna Gold, placed on two occasions over C&D. The early speed could be beneficial to the Fozzy Stack-trained LAUREL GROVE who finished second of 14 beaten ½L over C&D last month. Johan The Great for Joseph O'Brien and the Adrian McGuinness-trained Eglish both have decent efforts to their name over C&D and can give another good account here.
