C&D winner here last month on yielding ground landing the spoils in a 14-runner claimer. Another bold show looks likely.

28-race maiden who has continued to disappoint connections including a 54L defeat last month on the AW at Dundalk. Others preferred.

Well held when finishing down the field on disappointing track return last month in a Roscommon bumper on good ground over 2m. First time blinkers doubtful to bring about the required amount of progress needed on Flat debut.

It took 13 races to open his account but he was highly impressive when doing so over C&D in June. Well held since but a live player in this company.

Plenty to like about an improved performance over C&D last month on yielding ground finishing third of 14 beaten 1¼L behind Military Hill. Not easy to discount.

Poor form in a series of dismal displays since February. Well down the field in a Tipperary 7f on handicap debut when last seen in May, the filly may find this another tough assignment.

Beaten but not disgraced in three starts over 1m in July. Well held over this distance earlier in the season and appears vulnerable in this company.

Solid and consistent without winning in four starts over 1m2f and 1m3f since April. Holds strong each way claims off current mark.

Casamento gelding is a half-brother to winner up to 5½f Powerful Wind and two-year-old 7f winner Clodovil Queen. Will need to improve on discouraging debut at Navan last month.

Jeremy filly out of a Cloudings mare. Half-sister to multiple winners Unison and Gabrial's Kaka. Market likely to be best guide on debut.

Shown nothing in either of her previous three starts to suggest that she is capable of making it on a racecourse. Others readily preferred.

Bred to be speedy but didn't show a lot in two Dundalk AW runs over 12-months ago, failing to beat a rival home before another dismal show at Down Royal when last seen in September.

First Reserve: Losing run now dates back to September 2016 and has shown little encouragement to suggest that may change in three starts since April.

Betting

Forecast

Dragon Girl (5/2), Military Hill (11/4), Highway To Heaven (7/2), Eadbhard (7/2), Santorini Sun (4/1), Topamichi (8/1), Seeking Truth (12/1), Spice Blossom (12/1), Dont Quit (16/1), Aroundthebridge (20/1), Mzuri (20/1), Mujaafy (20/1), Lady Argentum (25/1), Always In Step (25/1), Curley Sue (40/1), On Fleek (50/1), House Of Fools (50/1)

Verdict

Dragon Girl will be expected to build on her fine win in a Sligo claimer last week when with the Jessica Harrington yard but gallant C&D winner EADHARD returns to the track but can land the spoils here coming back to his optimum trip. Potential improver, Highway To Heaven along with C&D winner Military Hill can hit the frame.
