18:00 Dundalk Fri 8 December 2017
Has struggled since being raised 7lb for a win at the Galway Festival but showed a promising attitude here last month when finishing fifth of 14 beaten 1L over this trip. Worth a market check.
Nine race maiden and the application of a visor (retained) failed to bring about improvement when finishing sixth in a 7f maiden here last time out. Well beaten over this trip in maiden company.
Beaten a nose when finishing second of 14 last time out here over 7f behind La Cumparsita. Will be expected to improve again from a decent enough draw.
64-rated modest handicapper Jedd O'Keeffe when finishing last of eight beaten 18L in August. Best watched on stable debut.
Over-whelmed in performances in the spring including a heavy defeat at Leopardstown in June for trainer-Brendan Duke. Beat watched on first start for new yard in first-time hood.
Four second-rate performances on the Flat for the Westerner gelding including a 30L defeat last time out. Others hold stronger profiles.
11 race-maiden on the AW for trainer-Tom Hogan including an 8L defeat when finishing last of 12 last month. Will need to improve to figure.
C&D winner well beaten over 1m last time out but is certainly one to consider over this trip now 5lb lower than last win.
Beaten on his last two starts at this track, may appreciate drop in trip and first-time cheekpieces. Others make more appeal.
Solid and consistent run on two appearances here and last time out at Wolverhampton without winning. Worth a market check and has place prospects.
Well held in all three maidens and no improvement shown on handicap debut at Leopardstown, before well beaten on AW debut here in August. Requires a chunk of improvement to play a role here.
Improved on run here in November to finish fourth of 13 beaten 7½ earlier this month. Has run well at big prices but still a tough ask here.
Course winner that has won over this trip, beaten only 3¼L last visit here in February. Low rated handicapper with it all to do here.
Five-race AW maiden well beaten on all starts including a 8½L defeat last time out here in November. May appreciate step up in trip on second start for yard.
