Verdict

AASHEQ can be given one final chance to confirm the form he displayed in the early part of last year. The son of Dubawi chased home US Army Ranger on his his debut and made the frame in two other decent maidens later in the year. He was very disappointing on his seasonal return at the Curragh last month and that has to be an obvious concern. Birds Of Prey and Breeze have also shown enough to suggest that they can win a race, while similar comments also apply to Artistic Melody and Sometimes A Fox.

Verdict

BIRDS OF PREY's best effort came when chasing subsequent Derby winner Wings of Eagles home over C&D last August, and, with his reappearance spin under his belt, he may be worth chancing to open his account. Artistic Melody equipped with first-time blinkers and Sometimes a Fox may emerge as the chief threats.

Made winning debut at Dundalk in February and better form when third of 4 in minor event there (7f) 4 weeks later. Much less exposed than rest of these rivals now switching to turf.

Verdict

TUFF LOVE only found a couple of useful rivals narrowly too good when third at Dundalk back in March, confirming the promise he had displayed when making a winning debut at the same track. Druids Cross has been running over much further than this of late but his sole win to date came over 7f last November. The older horses do not appear to be a great bunch but Secret Wizard is arguably the pick of them.

Verdict

CENOTAPH produced his best effort to date when a close fourth in a Curragh handicap last time and could be the way to go if turning up in similar form again. The twice-raced Tuff Love likely has more to come and rates an obvious danger, while Secret Wizard arrives at the top of his game and has Pat Smullen doing the steering.

Verdict

FAIRY FLUTE bounced right back to form when only going down by half a length on her debut for these connections at Limerick last month. That form has been boosted with winner being successful once again from an 8lb higher mark and that suggests a 5lb rise may underestimate this mare. Grainne's Dream went well in a few maidens last year and is one to note on her debut for Willie Mullins, while My Painter and Tamara Love are also respected.

Verdict

FAIRY FLUTE was a good second at Limerick last month on her first run for new trainer Gordon Elliott and can build on that and go one better now. Grainne's Dream is also interesting on first run for Willie Mullins, even more so if the market speaks in her favour, while My Painter has performed with credit on all 3 Flat starts this year, including over C&D, and should figure again.

Verdict

GREY WATERS has certainly improved as a three-year-old and although she was slightly disappointing at Fairyhouse last time out, the daughter of Mastercraftsman warrants the utmost respect based on her second-placed effort at Leopardstown back in May. Her stablemate Inescapable is another in with a good shout and she remains unexposed over this kind of trip. It would be no surprise to see the likes of Aldawayfornothing and French Mix improve for the switch to handicap company.

Verdict

INESCAPABLE is still relatively low-mileage and ran creditably in a stronger event on her return from a break at Fairyhouse earlier this month. She gets the nod in an open-looking contest. Stable companion French Mix has to be feared on handicap debut, whilst Steelyeyed and Marvellous Ways are also respected.

14/1, career best when winning 8-runner handicap chase at Wexford (16f, good) 27 days ago. Has work to do from 4 lb out of the weights, though.

Verdict

This year's Grand Annual winner Rock The World looks to have a fairly stiff task at the weights against rivals with potential improvement to come. His stable companion Mr Fiftyone is back down to a fair enough mark to strike but the vote goes to BALLYOISIN. The son of Presenting has failed to complete in three of his four starts over fences but he possesses a fair amount of ability and a confidence booster over timber could help his confidence. Devils Bridge showed a lot more last time and has to enter calculations.

Verdict

DEVILS BRIDE was a winner at the Galway Festival last summer and got back to that sort of form when third at Down Royal last time. Still on a fair mark, he is taken to land the spoils in what looks a competitive handicap. Lucky Pat and Killiney Court may be the principal dangers.
