21:00 Dundalk Fri 21 September 2018
Not beaten far into fifth at Dundalk in April, but well below form when last seen in July. Without a win here in seven and others considered.
Two from 16 here and C&D winner over two years ago off a 2lb higher mark. Still winning during the summer and could be dangerous back at this venue.
Winner of one of seven starts here but has been largely struggle over the best part of the summer. Handicapper still taking no chances with him yet.
Winner over C&D in March off an 8lb lower mark. Has been going well over the summer but looks up against it off current rating.
Mare who is two from nine here including a victory over C&D in November off a 4lb higher mark. Running well in defeat over the summer and given a big chance by the handicapper here back at this venue.
Well beaten on sole visit here. 101-rated handicap hurdler who was beaten 4L on return to the Flat last month at Bellewstown. Will need to improve to figure.
Dundalk stalwart who has won seven of his 35 starts round here, four over C&D with the last one coming in February 2017 off a 24lb higher mark. Place claims.
Form of the spring in the early part of the season seems to have evaporated following a number of heavy defeats recently. Needs to show significant improvement here.
Winner of a Naas 1m2f handicap in July off a 2lb lower mark. Well down the field since and looks a tall order.
Beaten on a couple of occasions here and generally disappointing in a number of below-par displays this year. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Without a win in three starts here but the 11-race maiden has been running well in defeat in a series of promising runs since June. Deserves a change of luck.
Has been running well enough to be considered over the summer bar his disappointing appearance at Bellewstown before finishing 2½L behind Golden Poet when fifth of 16 at Roscommon this month. Watching brief on AW debut.
Will have disappointed connections in a series of drab performances since June including a couple of heavy defeats last month before an improved performance on handicap debut at Naas recently. Needs to improve once again here.
