Ran well to finished foruth of 11 over 5f at The Curragh (soft-to-heavy) on his most recent start. Well handicapped on his old form and latest success came off a 10lb higher mark.
Victorious over 1m2f at Navan (good) on his penultimate outing back in August. Well held over that distance at Leopardstown (yielding) since and making his seasonal debut dropping in trip today.
Winner of 17 of his 127 starts and running respectably in recent starts. Races off a mark 1lb lower than when sixth at Cork (yielding) in April though others make more appeal here.
Well held on handicap debut over 1m at Gowran Park (yielding-to-soft) a month ago. Represents a shrewd stable here and worth a check in the market dropping in trip.
Winner over 7f at Wolverhampton in March 2016 but well beaten on the AW on final two starts for previous stable last October. Wears cheekpieces for the first time on his debut for this stable today.
Ran well to finish fourth of 14 over an extended 6f at Limerick (good-to-firm) earlier this month. Softer ground forecast is likely to suit and worth a check in the market here.
Off the mark at the second time of asking in a 7f maiden at Dundalk last September. Well held over the same C&D on handicap debut last month and worth a check in the market today.
Beaten a short-head at Ayr over 6f on good ground when wearing a tongue tie for the first time at the end of last month. Disappointed over the same C&D a week later but remains of interest upped to 7f for the first time here.
Ran well in final two maiden outings but disappointed over 7f at Fairyhouse (good) earlier this month. Softer ground forecast here should suit and not written off just yet.
Making his first appearance since being gelded when winning on handicap debut over 6f at Fairyhouse (good) earlier this month. Races off a 14lb higher mark here and interesting to see if he can repeat that effort today.
