Verdict

Shamooda looked very progressive before a moderate run at the Curragh in June and she should get back on track in a tricky contest in which ZALANGA is given the nod. Mick Halford's filly had subsequent winner Civil War behind when scoring over the C&D in August and looks the type to have a good winter on the all-weather. Katevan, a winner on her debut here last September, showed that she still has potential in a decent handicap at Gowran last month and first-time blinkers may aid the cause while King Of Aran has returned to action after a long break in fine form and battled to victory at the Curragh last month. Prince Of Fire has been in cracking form over hurdles and likes this track so he looks a big threat along with Buy Back Bob, who has been competing with credit in better class handicaps.
