Orgilgo Bay reverts to the level for the CKS Tickets (Q.R.) Race at Bellewstown on Wednesday.

John McConnell's smart hurdler went close to picking up a decent pot in that sphere at the Galway Festival after previously sauntering home by 20 lengths at Downpatrick.

This is a deceptively trappy affair, though, and cases can be made for all five runners, with champion NH trainer Willie Mullins doubly represented by Lucky Bridle and Shamar, his Flat counterpart Aidan O'Brien saddling Marchese Marconi, while Gretzy can't be ruled out with confidence either.

O'Brien fields an interesting newcomer in the shape of Quartz, who is a half-brother to Kingsbarns and makes his belated debut in the Outsource 360 Maiden.

Promising jumper Cillian's Return, Glowing Report and Intisaab set the standard, and the latter's handler Dermot Weld will have high hopes that Renown can build on his successful Wexford introduction in the Download The Free Racing Post Mobile App Handicap.

This is the most valuable race on the card so is predictably competitive, with the consistent Ebadani and recent Leopardstown scorer Sweet Cherry on top of the list of dangers.

The action gets under way at 4.10 with the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Auction Maiden, in which Great Dancer attempts to confirm his recent Roscommon superiority over Enter The Priory.

Botanical Lady is holding her form really well at present and is sure to have her share of supporters again when she goes to post for division one of the Bet Online At thetote.com Handicap, but there is less in the way of recent winning form to go on in the second instalment.

La Canaada bounced back to her best when upped to seven furlongs at Sligo but now reverts to the minimum trip in the Lougher Stables Handicap, and Zebed also drops to five furlongs for his handicap debut in the Glebe House Stud Nursery.
