The 5yo mare RUBBING SHOULDERS couldn't lay a glove on previous winner Scottsdale here last month but she pulled clear of the remainder and has sound claims on that form. Her biggest danger is Handy Hollow, who made a promising debut at Stratford. The newcomer Lafterlands doesn't make much appeal on breeding but he's in good hands and needs a check in the betting.[Steve Boow]

Improved plenty on her Downpatrick debut run when clear second behind a previous winner over C&D (good) last time; respected on that form and holds every chance of going one better.

Easy to back but showed clear promise at Stratford (2m, good) last month, finishing second to a well-supported fellow newcomer; again wears hood; open to progress and looks a major contender.

10,000euros yearling, 12,000euros 3yo; half-brother to Italian 1m2f winner Baffer, out of 7f 2yo AW selling winner; hardly an outstanding pedigree but trainer has good record in bumpers; market check needed.

Weakened in latter stages of a point (on testing ground) in March, pulled up before the final fence; bred to be suited by this easier test on forecast better ground; market support for this Irish raider should be noted.

RPR 89 in both starts this season, third over C&D latest (wore hood, now removed); has some ability and again shouldn't be far away, but needs improvement to get off the mark.
