Just four appearances in the past two years suggest there have been some training problems with this gelding. Over hurdles on stable debut at Leopardstown on St Stephens day. Any market move should be noted.

Failed to trouble the judge in three starts each for trainers Archie Watson and Ed Dunlop earlier this year. Second of 14 on a pleasing stable debut over 1m4f at this venue when last seen in December. Place chance here.

Course winner, ran well in defeat to finish within 1¼L of the winner Jon Ess over C&D last month. Should get competitive in this company.

Course winner the gelding finished an encouraging third of 14 beaten 2L on first start over C&D last month. Requires plenty of respect despite rise in weights.

Struggling daughter of Mastercraftsman well beaten and never nearer in a couple of starts since November including a heavy defeat over C&D last month. Difficult to fancy on this occasion.

Has taken to the track well in a couple of starts here since a debut win in October over 7f. Needs to step up a little on previous start but not one to put a line through just yet.

Won for a third time at this venue when landing a claimer over C&D last month beating Secret Wizard 1¾L on final start for Barry Fitzgerald. Interesting return to handicap company.

Won for the fifth time here last month when landing a 1m4f 5K handicap off a 6lb lower mark. Two-time C&D winner, the gelding can be expected to run another big race given recent consistency.

Winner of one of his four starts over C&D and could be of some interest now 2lb lower than his last winning mark.

Winner of one of her 11 starts for trainer Dermot Weld. Nearer last than first in a couple of 14 runner handicaps at this track over 7f recently. Appears vulnerable in this competitive contest.

Slight improvement in a couple of recent starts at this venue since the turn of the year. Not a forlorn hope but others still more convincing.

Off the mark at the ninth time of asking for connections when landing a 14 runner handicap over C&D last month when backed as if defeat was out of the question. Life more difficult off a 12lb higher mark.

Below par individual for trainer David Evans in four dismal starts for the handler last summer. Not seen since August and possibly best left on stable debut.

First Reserve: Landed a second career win when winning a 14 runner 1m2½f contest off a 4lb lower mark in December. Beaten from revised mark since but not to be underestimated.

Forecast

Rock On Aidan (5/2), Sheberghan (9/2), Tonkinese (11/2), Wild Shot (6/1), Saga Bolton (7/1), Gougane Barra (8/1), Sayesse (8/1), Winston Wolfe (10/1), Ragtime Red (14/1), La Derniere Fois (20/1), Hypnotic Force (25/1), Red Bloodedcruiser (25/1), Angel In The Sky (25/1), Alhajjaj (33/1), Voice Of Salsabil (50/1), Frosty Beach (66/1), Miss Clash (66/1)

Verdict

ROCK ON AIDAN was a facile winner of a 14 runner handicap at the end of last month and can defy a hefty rise in the weights here to win for the second time over C&D. The Ado McGuinness-trained five-year-old is burdened with a 12lb rise but can see off the attentions of Wild Shot, who won for the fifth time here last month when landing a 1m4f 5K handicap off a 6lb lower mark. Consistent sorts, Gougane Barra and C&D winner Saga Bolton can battle for remaining prize money.
