Soft ground would be a negative for the form pick Palifico, while beautifully-bred newcomer Thinking Of You is likely to be thereabouts.
A chance is taken with COLFER KAY, who ran a very nice race on debut at Down Royal last week and will appreciate the extra furlong.
Nothing is coming into the race in better form than Hell Left Loose and a repeat of her previous track form puts Noirvento bang there.
But, it might be worth taking a punt with handicap debutante WHAT A FEELING. Who was not badly handicapped on her debut effort at the Curragh with the drop in trip and first-time cheekpieces likely to be in her favour.
Whatever beats Denis Hogan’s duo here will probably win, but they will take some beating.
Scherzando didn’t have the pace to win over 7 furlongs at Cork on Wednesday and looked in need of the mile, so the safer option might just be stable companion ADAPT TO DAN. Despite being poorly drawn, he is likely to appreciate the drop in trip and just about gets the nod.
An average maiden, but an open one. But You Said is unexposed enough to improve.
Make A Promise would have a big chance if able to reproduce her initial effort at Naas, while the consistent Soineanta and the more unexposed Pachmena and Strange Times are interesting.
The vote goes to PIRATE LASS (NAP) who would probably be a pretty short price if she had not been so disappointing at Tipperary last time.
It’s possible that EARLS may be able to get another uncontested lead here and his pace should prove to be an asset at this venue.
Eddie Lynam’s charge is only up 5lb for winning at Sligo last time and it’s possible he will progress over this longer trip.
Take My Hand is another last time out winner who looks interesting back at 7 furlongs, while Golden Days is another to consider if ready to go after an 83-day absence.
A tough race to evaluate with a lot of these bringing different profiles into the race, but a chance is taken on COEUR D’OR who should relish this longer trip given his pedigree.
Dedillon is another to consider having shown better form over a similar trip last time while Hazran isn’t without a chance on his best form.
A case can be made for plenty of these, but LOINGSEOIR gets the vote after an impressive win at Cork last time and that form has received a boost with the runner-up winning since.
Han Solo has to be of interest if he gets in the race and the consistent Pak Army probably won’t be far away once again.
A competitive race to complete the card and several of these look well handicapped.
None more so than POSEIDON who is untested over this trip on the Flat and won from a mark of 129 over hurdles last month. Paistiul gave the impression this longer trip would suit when winning at Navan six days ago and she’s respected if she gets a run.
Red Vermillion doesn’t have too many miles on the clock and is another to consider.
