Verdict

It's All A Joke was only narrowly denied in a handicap off a mark of 70 last week and he should take plenty of beating today if taking his chance (was due to run at Leopardstown yesterday). Fox Dream is another who brings solid form to the table but he is vulnerable off joint-top weight today. With that in mind, the preference is for the unexposed CASE STATED, who arrives here on the back of some creditable efforts in maidens. Others to note are Steelriver and Daliyah.

Verdict

IT'S ALL A JOKE looks the pick of the weights on the back of last week's second in handicap company at Fairyhouse and will look the one to beat if turning up here after Leopardstown on Thursday. Case Stated has reached the frame in maidens on his last 2 starts and may provide the main threat ahead of the selection's stablemate Daliyah.

Verdict

AMAIRA showed plenty of promise when finishing fifth of nine on her debut at Leopardstown recently and she should only improve for that experience. Frosty Beach is an interesting newcomer, being from the family of Relaxed Gesture, and she could prove to be the main threat to the selection. Fleeting, Syrena and Vallambrosa are other debutants who require monitoring in the market today.

Verdict

Some appealing newcomers, with FROSTY BEACH taken to make a winning start for Dermot Weld before market clues. Fleeting is of obvious interest for Ballydoyle, while Syrena is another to keep an eye on.

Twice-raced winner. 1 win from 2 runs this year. Won 15-runner maiden at Listowel (8f, good, 7/1) 19 days ago, keeping on well. Open to progress.

Verdict

TRUE TO HERSELF accounted for a subsequent seven-length winner when she was successful at Listowel last time out and that form gives her a big chance this evening. Understate has improved with every start to date and he could give the selection plenty to think about today if taking another step forward. Both Overcoming and Spiorad Saoirse need to improve to beat the selection but the former is the pick of that pair.

Verdict

TRUE TO HERSELF looked potentially useful when getting off the mark at the second time of asking at Listowel last month and can follow up, perhaps at the expense of fellow last-time-out maiden winner Understate.

Below form sixth of 11 in handicap at Navan (10f, good to firm, 7/2) 16 days ago, not ideally placed.

Verdict

ARTISTIC MELODY was only denied by a neck when finishing second at Roscommon last time out and he can go one better this evening. Kamili made an encouraging return to action at Gowran Park at the end of last month and she is entitled to improve for that first outing since August. St Gallen and Gunmaker are others who merit places on the shortlist.

Verdict

Gordon Elliott's MARKHAN caught the eye last time and is now too well handicapped to ignore having dropped to a mark 18 lb lower than when last successful. Artistic Melody went close at Roscommon last time and can figure again, while St Gallen didn't get the breaks last time and is one to bear in mind from this sort of mark.

Promising type. 10/1, fifth of 10 in maiden at Fairyhouse (10f, good to firm) 22 days ago. May well do better.

Verdict

IMRANA was supported in the betting on debut at Cork last month and should appreciate this additional distance for Dermot Weld. She will have learnt plenty from that experience and looks to be the first choice of two Aga Khan runners for the master handler. Bongiorno represents last year's winning trainer/jockey combination and looks set to go well after an impressive third on debut, while better can also be expected from Joseph O'Brien's Seize Your Star.

Verdict

IMRANA shaped with plenty of promise on debut at Cork 5 weeks ago and is a big player with improvement forthcoming. Bongiorno and Tooreen Katie head the dangers.

Verdict

BABA BOOM ran well on his handicap/seasonal debut when second at Navan earlier this month and this lightly-raced three-year-old looks set to build on that for Johnny Murtagh. He seemed to enjoy the step up in trip there, despite his speed-based pedigree, and could have much more to offer. Match My Fire was unlucky not to win when finishing runner-up at Fairyhouse a week ago, while Acclamatio should be suited by a return to this sphere after consecutive poor showings over hurdles.

Verdict

MATCH MY FIRE went very close at Fairyhouse last week and has a big shout if in the same form. Baba Boom, Mademoiselle Penny and Miro are other key players.
