16:50 Dundalk Thu 12 July 2018
Won a Listed contest at Naas last month beating seven rivals 2L. Better than last run at the Curragh and has the overall form to make a bold bid here.
Distance winner of a two-year-old Curragh handicap last season and successful in three of her 13 turf starts. Her best form has been on ground with a little give in it so possibly beat watched on AW bow.
Long-standing regular here winner of nine of his 34 starts at the track including over C&D. Well held on turf recently but a different proposition on this surface, though place claims at best.
C&D winner back in November last year off a 2lb lower mark. Still in good form winning a Curragh handicap over this trip last month. Enters calculations here back on this track.
Largely well held since winning a Navan handicap on heavy ground in April. Sole C&D win came in August 2015 off a 6lb lower mark. Liable to find a couple stronger in this.
Beaten 11L on seasonal start in a Cork handicap following finishing ninth of 13 beaten 4½L over C&D here in October. Not likely to play a part in the finish here.
