Verdict

Circumstances begins her handicap career on a high mark considering she was beaten 10l at Dundalk in February. Danequest landed a nursery over the C&D in September and has gone quite well since so it's a surprise that he's 2lb lower here. He'll make a bold bid from the front and must be respected but QUEENSCLIFF looks the one to be on. David Wachman's filly has been described as a slow learner and was very well supported when making her handicap debut from a mark of 55 at Dundalk last month. She won impressively that day and an 11lb rise doesn't look enough to prevent a follow-up. Fluidity looks the type to do better this season and could snatch a place while Fastidious wasn't suited by 6f on soft ground on his final start at the Curragh in September and should do much better here.
