Not at his best last time in the Rockingham Handicap ALFREDO ARCANO still holds plenty of appeal back on his favoured surface with a prime draw and a valuable rider's claim. Dali could prove a major threat on only his second ever polytrack start, while prolific course winner Togoville has to be respected despite this being somewhat 'out of season' for him. [Alan Hewison]

Quick ground and the minimum trip has seen improvement this season from the son of Scat Daddy, notably narrow defeat in valuable Curragh handicap and Naas Listed win when making all; never really able to land a blow after tardy start in Rockingham Handicap on latest and reverts to polytrack for first time since second on juvenile debut in April 2017.

Three-time winner at this track, including last November off 76 and scored for first time on turf when always up with pace and battling well at the Curragh last month off 82; upset at the start and never really landed a blow though not disgraced in the circumstances in Rockingham there on latest; respected back on polytrack from a prime draw and rider's claim a positive too.

Juvenile winner on fast ground but best efforts have come on easier ground, this term winning Navan handicap under today's rider and second in Naas Listed; not at best in Group 3 Ballyogan Stakes on latest when never really landing a blow on good-to-firm; first taste of the polytrack here.

Nine of 11 career wins have come here, most recently 6f conditions event in March; both efforts since off lower turf mark moderate and tends to show best form in winter/spring but never one to discount back on favoured surface.

Two Polytrack wins (from five runs here) came some time ago, though recorded sixth career success in testing ground at Navan early this campaign; form since has been largely disappointing though did show customary early pace in Rockingham last time; can't be discounted but may find a couple stronger at the finish.

Fairyhouse maiden winner on heavy ground last autumn for Joseph O'Brien then disappointed at today's venue just three days later; looked in need of the run on seasonal return for current trainer at Cork in May (when hooded) and probably a watching brief best advised for now.
