Game sort who always runs his race on both turf and the AW. Winner here in August over 6f off a 1lb lower mark before a gallant defeats last month.
Running well over the summer completing a double in July at Naas over 5f. Beaten a little over 2L on debut over C&D earlier this month and progress expected.
Second over C&D last week off a 2lb lower mark beaten a short-head behind Surrounding. May find a couple on better marks but can hit the frame in current form.
Distance winner who finished third of 14 beaten 2¾L behind the improving Honor Oak in April off a 1lb lower mark. Place claims.
C&D winner here 12-months ago off a similar mark. Open to improvement back here and worth a market check.
Winner here on debut and last seen at the track finishing a well beaten eighth of 14 behind Zig Zag Zyggy. May find a couple too good.
Second of 14 beaten ½ over C&D last month off a similar mark. Open to significant improvement on his third start here.
Still a maiden after nine starts but only narrowly denied at Tipperary in June when runner-up before being well held at the Curragh when last seen in July. Third of 13 over C&D on sole start here in May.
Winner here over 6f in August off a 9lb higher mark. Yard have a 31% win and place strike rate here around this time of year since 2015 and is likely to go close here.
Improved for first-time blinkers when finishing third of 15 beaten 1¾L in a 7f Curragh contest in August before disappointing on first start over C&D earlier this month. Vulnerable in this company.
Has hit the frame on one of his three visits here and may find it tough going once again here.
Without a win in nine visits to the venue but was not beaten far on her last couple of C&D starts. No surprise to see the filly hit the frame.
Beaten favourtie over C&D here last month when third of 14 beaten ½L behind Time Stands Still. Strong place claims for yard that goes well here.
Gelded son of Alternation out of a Unbridled's Song mare. Plenty of USA progeny in the line including Arrogate. Nothing of note in four starts to date and best left for the moment.
