Comes here on a hat-trick of wins at the track following a couple of victories last month including over C&D off an 11lb higher mark. Difficult task off revised mark but merits plenty of respect.

All four career wins have come over C&D from 11 starts over the combination. Last win at this venue came over two years ago and still the consistent gelding races 5lb higher than last winning mark.

Winner at this track on four occasions but the Oratorio gelding is still looking for his first win over C&D in eight starts. Can give a good account without posing serious threat to principals.

Mixed bag of efforts in five starts on this surface since October. Has never been the easiest to catch right but worth a market check on first start over this trip.

Winner of two races on turf previously the mare is without a success in 10 starts at the track including four starts over C&D. Lightly raced in the last two years Infrequent visits to the course will not be helping the mare to progress in the game.

Running off career high marks on his final couple of starts for trainer David Barron towards the end of the Flat season in UK. Pleasing effort here over 7f on first start for new connections earlier this month but more needed in this contest.

Betting

Forecast

Will Be King (7/2), Able Jack (9/2), Bucky Larson (5/1), Sayesse (6/1), La Derniere Fois (7/1), Koybig (10/1), Poet's Pride (10/1), Eacharn (11/1), Parkers Hill (14/1), Shawaf (16/1), Tennessee Wildcat (16/1), Have A Nice Day (20/1), Eastern Racer (25/1), Fashaar (25/1), Curly Girl (66/1)

Verdict

Trainer Ger Lyons has produced Phoenix Open and Ela Katrina to win at this venue from three runners since the turn of the year and the handler can add to that tally with BUCKY LARSON his only runner at the track this evening. The lightly raced five-year-old can overcome a lay-off to land the spoils ahead of the Joseph O'Brien-trained Will Be King and the improving Iffraaj gelding, Able Jack who arrives here bidding for a hat-trick of wins. The David Marnane-trained Koybig who is a four-time winner over C&D appears cable of hitting the frame at a price.
