13:10 Kalmira

The stronger of the two divisions and, among others, convincing claims can be made for the likes of Arctic Blaze and Lady Of Luxury. Matilda With Me is back to a winning mark too, but the lightly-raced KALMIRA won quite convincingly on her handicap debut here and could still be progressive. An 8lb rise might not be enough to stop her.

13:45 Aldente

The weaker of the two divisions. Recent winner French Company and C&D runner-up Clueless Hill look the ones to beat. There was plenty to like though about the performance of ALDENTE after 14 months off last time though and perhaps he can improve enough to turn tables on French Company.

14:20 Summit Star

Cases can be made for plenty of these. The hat-trick seeking Power Drive comes in here in particularly good form, but preference is for SUMMIT STAR, back over probably her best trip here and could be hard to beat if reproducing her November form.

14:55 Sunwalk

Now that he has turned a corner with a maiden win over C&D a fortnight ago, SUNWALK may be able to overcome the slight drawback of being 2lb out of the handicap. Nibiru has two good course efforts to his name, but both have been over further. He is possibly better handicapped than Dalvey who is trip-versatile.

15:30 Jaafel (NAP)

Of the more experienced ones here, Gold Wing and Macadam’s Rock make some appeal while Search For Thestar is the most interesting newcomer. However, JAAFEL (NAP) would be very hard to beat if reproducing her run over 1m2f here two weeks ago with the drop back to 1m not an issue.

16:00 Dubirango

This provides trainer Fergal Birrane and apprentice Sean Bowen a good chance to add to the win achieved with DUBIRANGO 12 days ago. He is only 3lb higher now, whereas Daintree is up 20lb since winning a 5f handicap here early last month, the bulk of that rise stemming from a subsequent conditions-race victory. It’ll Do My Day has a big chance if recovering his best early juvenile form.

16:35 Woodrow

Leanne Breen has nursed WOODROW back to form and Scott McCullagh’s 5lb claim will help as the top-weight bids to follow up last week’s 7f win under a 7lb penalty. Samrogue and Teddy Boy are reliable performers at this venue, while Inishmot Prince has the merit of being relatively unexposed.

17:10 Jered Maddox

An 8lb rise for last month’s win will make life harder for JERED MADDOX, but he has won off a mark just 2lb lower than this in the past. Eglish has been in good form lately, and course 5f winner Mna Na Mhi rates a big threat in her first handicap. Denis Hogan has three runners, of whom Royal Tribute is perhaps the most interesting now that he is dropped back to this trip.
