The Winged Love gelding WINGED LEADER made-up good late ground to come from off the pace and finish an encouraging third in a race won by the runaway leader Shot To Hell. It would not be a surprise to see him step-up here. Our Bubba made his debut in an ultra-competitive heat at Ballinaboola and cannot be discounted, whilst Your Bluffing, Tanrudy and Braeside are others to have offered promise on their respective debuts.

In what would seem quite an open looking race, it may be worth giving PLAN OF ESCAPE a second chance as he is better than his disappointing showing at Borris House in the autumn. Whichever of the Colin Bowe quartet of Gun Merchant, Out The Glen, Hadmeathello, or Robin Du Roi line-up here are sure to be dangers. Of the others Mymilan and recent improver Accordingtojohnny are worth nothing.

ASKING A LOT was beaten at short odds at Curraghmore over Easter, however her efforts at Bartlemy and Borris House prior to that latest run are the two standout pieces of form in this race, and she can gain compensation here. Alices Star was back to her best when taking on winners at Largy last weekend, whilst Drumconnor, Presenting Rio and Annie McCarroll are others to have shown ability in the past.

CAPTAIN COOK got within two lengths of Pacte In The Park at Moira on his latest outing, and that horse has already franked the form by winning again at Courtown last Saturday ensuring he could be hard to beat. Monkey Harris, Tipp Away and Tawnawully are all quite evenly matched, whilst Master Jeremiah would be entitled to go close on his latest Fairyhouse run, although he does have a long lay-off to overcome.

Preview

RATFACEMCDOUGALL enters the race in good form, as he has not finished outside of the first two in three career starts to date, gaining a deserved maiden success at Largy last Saturday, ensuring that he would seem to be the pick of the performers in this. Starozov was a four-year-old winner at Kinsale late last season and has to be respected, with conditions likely not in his favour when he disappointed at Liscarroll on his seasonal reappearance. Inishbel won well last week and can mix it with the geldings in this.
