Off the mark on her second start at this venue on her only run over C&D landing a 13 runner claimer in October. Beaten since over 1m at this track but could be more of a force back over this trip.

Three-time winner at this venue the gelding boasts a win and a couple of place efforts over C&D from 10 starts over the combination. Bit more needed but enters calculations.

Running well in defeat in three starts over C&D since November. Now racing 7lb lower than last winning mark and holds strong place claims in this contest.

Five wins at this venue including a victory over C&D from 10 starts over the combination. Continues to run with credit and likely to be involved at the finish here.

Winner over C&D but appears to be struggling in a number of starts round this track since November. Gallant sort but racing 16lb lower than last winning mark raises concerns.

12-race maiden who has proceeded to hit the frame on just one occasion. Lightly raced over the last two years and was well held earlier this month over 1m here finishing eighth of the 14 runners. Plenty to prove at present.

AW specialist who won twice at Southwell earlier this year when in the care of trainer Brian Ellison. Running well in defeat in three starts here including over C&D in November. Should be a leading contender in this company.

Mixed bag of efforts in three career starts on the Flat since a debut run at Roscommon in August. Market likely to be the best guide on handicap debut.

Running well in defeat in a number of starts at this track since November including over C&D last month finishing second of 14 beaten ½L behind Able Jack. Worthy of consideration now back below last winning mark.

Miserly return of one win from 16 career starts on the Flat including a couple of spins at this venue previously. Hard to place any faith in.

Not beaten far over C&D in May last year. Could make for a lively outsider now back racing on his last winning mark.

Eight race maiden well beaten and never a factor on turf in a number of starts over the summer. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

First Reserve: Winner over C&D on one occasion from seven starts over the combination. Could be a lively player if making the line-up.

Betting

Forecast

Tyrconnell (2/1), Masalai (4/1), Ticks The Boxes (9/2), A Likely Story (11/2), Beleaguerment (6/1), Cappadocia (10/1), Silk Cravat (12/1), Drummer (12/1), Scream (12/1), Midnitemudcrabs (14/1), Lady Sonia (16/1), Rag Tatter (20/1), Red All Star (25/1), Clueless Hill (25/1), Pegasus Bridge (25/1), Theoneyouare (33/1), Crystal Dawn (33/1)

Verdict

The Edward Lynam-trained MASALAI has a win and two places from three starts over C&D to his name and can add to that tally here following a pleasing run finishing third of 14 beaten 1L over the combination last month. The six-year-old can land the spoils in the final race ahead of C&D winner A Likely Story now back below last winning mark and the Mark Fahey-trained Cappadocia who has five wins to his name at this venue. Red All Star could go well if allowed to dictate early on from stall two.
