19:30 Dundalk Fri 27 January 2017
Back on his game last week when winning over a mile here, should go well again but mark of 67 is high enough.
Maiden but has gone close on occasion, including over 7f on AW at Wolverhampton in September. Disappointing on final start for previous trainer and comes here off a break.
One-paced at the finish over C&D seven days ago, in keeping with most of his recent form.
Dual C&D scorer in November 2015, ran a decent race to be third here a fortnight ago but must find extra.
Comes back here having been hurdling latest, recent Flat form isn't laden with promise but would be dangerous to write her off on current mark.
Well below best on two spins around here recently and hard to see a prominent role in this.
Two runs for this yard have been disappointing, dropped to 5f last time and now goes in the other direction, doesn't make much appeal.
Good effort over a mile here seven days ago, first start back from a break. Drops back in trip now and could have more to come with that run behind him.
Four-time course winner including in November over 6f although well below that for in one run since.
Improved on second start for trainer to be runner-up in apprentice contest over C&D a fortnight ago, could build on that effort off this mark.
Failed to much of an impact in four starts on turf for previous yards, first start for this trainer and hasn't raced since June.
Remains a maiden after 15 runs, not seen since July and is not favoured by the weights for this race.
Switched yards since latest disappointing effort at Cork in October, wrong at the weight now and hard to build any case.
Recent efforts have all been of a poor standard, including AW bow here earlier this month.
