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.

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.

Betting

Forecast

Dinky Inty (10/3), Goodnite Irina (9/2), Secret Memories (7/1), Texas Radio (8/1), Pass The Ball (10/1), Maysonette (10/1), Tom Dooley (12/1), Bubbly Bellini (12/1), Bluesbreaker (12/1), Casuist (14/1), Getaway Queen (16/1), Dandy Rock (16/1), Sally Gap (16/1), Fortuities (20/1), Leath Na Hoibre (25/1), Rimshot (25/1), Rigid Rock (33/1)

Verdict

Texas Radio will possibly break well from stall six and grab an early lead in the early stages here. Bubbly Bellini will need to be noted if getting in to the race while Dinky Inty, fifth of 14 last time out beaten only 1L can give the selection, GOODNITE IRINA the most to think about.
