Timeform on Dylrow

BRAVE OUT - 15:30 Wexford

BRAVE OUT ran right up to his best when fourth on his most recent outing at Gowran, making headway from rear after three out and keeping on steadily thereafter to be beaten only four lengths. Admittedly, he remains on a mark 6 lb higher than when winning this race under Denis O'Regan 12 months ago, but there was enough encouragement in that latest effort to suggest that he is coming to the boil, and he is likely to have been primed for this repeat bid with conditions again having come in his favour (acts on heavy going).

DYLROW - 16:35 Wexford

DYLROW showed improved form to open his chasing account at Fairyhouse in January, before taking another significant step forward to make a winning handicap debut at the same venue two weeks later, appearing to have more in hand than the official winning margin would suggest on the latter occasion. Robert Hennessy's charge has a 7 lb rise in the weights to contend with here, but the form of that latest effort still sets the standard on weight-adjusted ratings, and with the prospect of more to come after only five starts over fences, he looks sure to take all the beating in his hat-trick bid.

BRAESIDE - 17:10 Wexford

BRAESIDE has found just one too good on each of his two starts in this sphere, and is taken to make it third tome lucky under Rules in the finale. Stablemate Hell On Earth should do better in time, but bigger threats on this occasion are likely to be posed by Ontheropes, who can be expected to step up on what he showed at Fairyhouse, and Itsnotinit. Fire Away and The Rubinator both have each-way claims.
