GOTTARDO had a few of these behind when winning over the minimum trip on his recent course visit and the extra furlong is unlikely to present any real problems for the Choisir gelding. Highly Approved now debuts for the more than capable Shane Duffy and could emerge as the main danger. [Shay Howard]

Defied a 4lb lower mark than todays on recent handicap when winning narrowly from Rapid Reaction, with a few of today's rivals in arrears, under today's talented 10lb claimer; that not the quickest contest ever staged but should be more to come and is one for any shortlist.

Strong in the market to supplement his C&D success when third behind Gottardo (recv' 6lb) over 5f here latest; probably needs this slightly longer trip but handicapper could have his measure; that said, likely to be bang there.

A lot to like about the manner of this ones handicap win here on penultimate start and subsequently blitzed the field (8-15f) in a C&D claimer three days later; has since transferred to another shrewd source and remains feared even off an 11lb higher mark.

Yet to hit the mark in six starts but has done very little wrong on his last few outings, including hitting the crossbar in a C&D handicap on penultimate start off a 4lb lower mark than today's; absent for 117-days but should be more left to come.

Failed to set any track records in three starts in maidens, but not disgraced on the pick of her form either over 5f here, posting a top RPR of 64; should do better now switched to handicaps and stable going well.

Narrowly justified favouritism in a maiden here three starts back; reared leaving the gates when last of 14-runners back on the turf at Naas on next start, before finding Gottardo (recv' 9lb) 2.25l too good when fifth over 5f on recent course visit; blinkers now tried but a shade vulnerable.

Poor on first couple of starts but a bit better since gelded, although down the field when last seen out at Fairyhouse; first roll of the dice on the AW today and could surprise a few if fitness holds up on the back of a 210-day absence.

Former 6f winner and stamina gave way on heavy ground on first start for 115-days when tailed off at Cork on penultimate start; bit better when seventh of eight-runners behind Gottardo here recently, but will do well to turn the tables, even with the extra furlong to suit.

The penny seemed to be dropping somewhat when fourth (8-runners) at Killarney on final start of 2017; returned from a 218-day absence with a disappointing effort when all bar pulled up on heavy ground at Cork 18-days ago; 2lb wrong before jockeys claim and blinkers now added.
