Russian Roulette ran well behind one in form last time and looks a player, along with improving types Polar Present, Lasoscar and Simiel, who could be buoyed by getting his head in front at last. However, TWILIGHT SHADOW would have been placed at the very worst off her mark had she not come down late on at Downpatrick and she gets the nod.[Alistair Whitehouse-Jones]

1m4f Flat winner last summer off a basement mark; making only his second handicap appearance when winning 2m4f event at Killarney and then second off 7lb higher at Roscommon (2m7f), beating all bar one who has followed up since; nudged up 3lb for that and is back in trip, but very much considered.

Won a good-ground 2m2f maiden hurdle at Downpatrick and was back there for handicap debut last time (2m7f) when looking good for a place at the very least when falling at the final flight; if none the worse for that then likely contender off same mark.

Not sure it was the best of maidens she picked up at Cork (second pulled up since) but won that on the back of a bumper success and is clearly progressing along the right lines.

Lightly raced for a 9yo and after winning so well over 2m4f at Roscommon he returned there to dead-heat off a 9lb higher mark, with the form horses fighting it out (fellow dead-heater run well again since); has another 8lb to contend with but could cope with that.

Battled well to win Sligo beginners chase last September and although still a maiden over hurdles was second in a Down Royal handicap the last time (2m6f), albeit in an eventful race; if as good again then would have claims off 3lb higher.

Fairly useful placed form in maiden hurdles and after trying his luck over fences has continued the good work back in the same races, finally winning one with a battling effort over C&D; did beat an 18-race maiden so unwise to go overboard about the form, but could be onwards and upwards.

Inherited his Galway third due to last-flight faller in 2m maiden and off what looked a tough opening mark could finish only mid division at Ballinrobe; dropped only 1lb.
