AGGRESSION (nap), who has won twice over this trip at Dundalk, does not need to improve much on recent form to register a first success on turf. Likely dangers are the improving Snowstar and Sheila Lavery's recent import Flawlessly. [Alan Sweetman]

Placed in handicap company before justifying favouritism in an ordinary 5f maiden at Tipperary; was running from 3lb out of the handicap when third over course and trip just over a fortnight ago; leading chance now despite revised mark; 9lb up in total since maiden success.

Dual winner over this trip at Dundalk and had gone very close on his two most recent attempts on turf; recovered from touch of early interference when finishing well for second at Bellewstown; beaten only a head in 19-runner Navan event and could go one better now; has gone up 3lb, but still 3lb current all-weather rating

Down Royal 5f maiden winner last year; fine effort when second at Cork three starts ago and ran better than her finishing position suggested in the Rockingham last time; failed to reproduce best turf form when making first Dundalk appearance last time.

Rewarded for a sequence of placings when winning at Redcar in June on her final start in Britain; all seven runs for James Bethell were at this trip, and she shows plenty of speed; first run for trainer who has her team in good order

Went close in a maiden and a handicap last year for Simon Crisford; very disappointing so far for current yard, including odds-on defeat in a maiden; 12lb lower than at start of campaign but still hard to have much faith.
