15:40 Dundalk Thu 12 July 2018
Distance winner who was beaten favourite last time out in a Limerick handicap over this trip. First-time cheekpieces may assist.
Solid and consistent sort over this trip on three occasions since early last month hitting the frame in a couple of big field handicaps. C&D winner here and rates a leading contender.
Solid type who has landed two of his last four starts including over this trip at Navan last month. Generally well down the field in three starts here and may need to improve to have a say here.
Have to go back to 2016 to find the last time he visited the winners enclosure. C&D winner back in December 2015 off a 15lb higher mark. Liable to find one of two quicker here again.
Modest 81-rated handicapper for James Tate and has only lost-ground for current yard. Hard to fancy until showing hints of ability.
C&D winner who won over 7f on his last visit here beating 13 rivals and Texas Radio in to second in May off a 1lb lower mark. One to consider back at this track.
Gutsy gelding who deserves a change of luck following a series of narrow defeats last month. Placed here on a number of occasions and each way claims back on this surface.
Well held in AW maiden at Dundalk in March on stable debut before a couple near misses at Gowran Park and Bellewstown recently. Likely to improve and worth considering.
Course winner over 5f and has largely been disappointing since. Others look more convincing at this level.
Ran with promise on his most recent starts here over C&D. Well down the field on turf since but one for the shortlist back on this surface.
Below par 57-rated handicapper for trainer-David Barron and has been well beaten on first starts for new connections in a couple of disappointing efforts recently.
Course winner over 7f in November off a 5lb lower mark. Second of 17 beaten ¾L at Cork last month on good to firm ground. May find it tough going here.
Hints of promise last time out at Listowel and first time visor unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
