Lone win came at Chelmsford which earned him a peak rating of 75. Unplaced in five starts in Ireland since stable change and rating continues to plummet. Now 7lb below winning mark but doesn't look ready to take advantage.

Has been on the go since April and has had a laboured season well beaten on all starts, including a 41L defeat last time out. Will need a chunk of improvement to land a blow.

Twice a winner of ordinary turf handicaps and back to last winning mark now. Just the one placed effort from 10 starts here but not disgraced over C&D in September and not out of this off current mark.

Twice a winner here early this year but this filly has found things much tougher since off her increased rating but is now dropping towards a workable mark again. Upped 2½f today but not looked to be in need of further so that a question mark.

Unsuccessful in eight starts to date, best coming when second at Ayr. Not disgraced after a layoff here over 1m last time and now upped to more suitable trip so can't be totally ruled out.

Unplaced in six starts to date and beaten out of sight in first two starts on AW here. Handicap mark continues to slide but hard to make a case for until he is at least competitive in a race.

Returned from nearly two years off in May and unplaced in six starts since. Handicap tumbling but no signs whatsoever that she is ready to take advantage and has the worst of the draw.

Won twice here although most recent over two years ago. Ran well at Bellewstown over 1m two starts back and also when last seen here in May. Beaten out of sight on heavy last time but not out of this although he is far from consistent.

Two starts on the AW both in 2014 so no recent evidence on this surface. Generally running well at similar level of late although 3lb rise for good second latest again makes life tougher. Should again give a solid account.

Lone career win was over C&D and is now 2lb lower. That win over a year ago and well beaten in two hurdle races and two flat races this year so difficult to make a strong case for.

Beaten 10 lengths plus in all five starts over 1m. Probably stay this longer trip but would have to improve dramatically for it to feature.

Yet to win on AW but placed on five occasions so clearly handles it well enough. Long losing run has brought her to 16lb below last winning mark but ran well here over 1m4f latest and looks a leading player here with rating unchanged.

Off the mark at 33/1 over 1m here last time. That dramatically improved form and looked as if this longer trip would suite even better. Up 4lb today but looks a leading player with top jockey taking over.

Well beaten in all seven starts but ran best race last time when 5¾L 11th of 22 at Navan. 6lb drop for that looks quite generous and could go well at a price on AW debut.

Forecast

Crown Pleasure (5/2), Indian Tomahawk (6/1), Jessamine (8/1), Quiet Company (8/1), Set To Fire (8/1), Blankiedoodie (8/1), Poetical Dreamer (12/1), Snap Click (12/1), Mack Miller (14/1), For Three (16/1), Ruby Quest (16/1), Lady Rosebud (20/1), Society Ranger (25/1), Prudencia (25/1), Frozen Moon (50/1), Possible Future (50/1), Vitalized (66/1)

Verdict

Title challengers Colin Keane and Pat Smullen continue to fight tooth and nail and they have the most likely winners of this race. Preference is for Smullen's mount QUIET COMPANY who looked much improved here last time and could be better still over today's longer trip. Crown Pleasure ran well here too and should be as effective over this shorter trip. Of the rest there are a few with pieces of form to give them some chance and Indian Tomahawk is one of the more likely to go well.
  1. Quiet Company
  2. Crown Pleasure
  3. Indian Tomahawk
