Form & Verdict
Won slow-ground Irish point by 8l in February; had to settle for third when warm favourite for last month's stable/hurdle debut at Uttoxeter (2m, good) but was denied clear run when keeping on in closing stages there, and today's step up in trip ought to be very much in his favour.

Experienced pointer (0-12) failed to set the track alight on last two starts over hurdles and no great shakes either in two previous runs over fences under rules; first-time hood needs to do the trick.

Form & Verdict
Sister to smart French chaser Lord Prestige and bettered her disappointing bumper debut when fifth of 13 at Kilbeggan (good to yielding) in April; can probably improve again over jumps but stable's other runner in this race has much more obvious claims.

OR:

Form & Verdict
Outran 50-1 odds when second on last month's stable debut at Downpatrick (2m3f) and subsequent fifth over same C&D (also on good to yielding) was perfectly respectable; takes on males here but ought to make her presence felt under Brian Hughes.

Betting Forcast

12/1 Cormackstown Road, 2/1 Iddergem, 100/1 So Be It, 50/1 Super Sling, 13/8 Ballyquin Bay, 20/1 Carlotalin, 8/1 Dame Prestige, 9/2 Sula Warrior

Verdict

Cartmel second Ballyquin Bay has a major role to play again but today's step up in trip can unlock significant improvement from Irish point winner IDDERGEM, who kept on well for third and might have been a shade unlucky over 2m on last month's hurdling debut. Sula Warrior is an each-way option to consider.[Chris Wilson]
