PLAY SMARTER

This could boil down to a match between BRIEF AMBITION and Rich Belief, with preference for the former. There should be more to come from Fergal O’Brien’s charge in this sphere and he narrowly shades the vote over Irish-raider Rich Belief, who should give the selection plenty to think about after his comprehensive maiden hurdle victory at Down Royal 10 days ago.

PLAY SMARTER

GRAGEELAGH GIRL has shown enough back under Rules the last twice to suggest that a race of this nature will be well within her grasp off this reduced mark. Granted a clear round, Frau Georgia may be the one to follow the selection home, while chase-debutant Folks Like Us and Fresh New Dawn both make some each-way appeal.

This looks wide open despite the small field and it may pay to take a chance on the returning DEAD RIGHT. Okay, he needs forgiving a lesser effort at Ayr in April but that came in a much stronger affair and with a very good record fresh to call upon, a much better showing is anticipated.

PLAY SMARTER

MILLIE OF MAYO ended last season out of form but having slipped in the weights, she went well for a long way at Cartmel in May. Now operating from her last winning mark, she could be worth chancing to put it all together. Henry Sellers arrives on a roll and is feared, along with No Fixed Charges.

PLAY SMARTER

RENEGADE ARROW made a promising start at Worcester 6 weeks ago and could be hard to beat if building on that. A market move for Diliymi would need taking seriously.
