Consistent sort who was beaten favourite earlier this month at Cork over the extended mile on good ground when 10L adrift of the winner. Tough ask.
Distance winner of a Gowran Park maiden on good to firm ground in May. Running well in defeat in two of his three handicaps since and has the form to make a bold bid here.
Very lightly raced gelding formerly with John Gosden who has clearly had his problems. Not seen since July 2016 and best viewed here.
Course winner here in April in a 1m handicap off a 14lb lower mark. Winner on last start at Gowran Park last month and the one to contend with here.
Canford Cliffs filly. Half-sister to several winners over a variety of trips. Failed to build on promising debut at the Curragh in May and hard to fancy here.
Running better than form figures would suggest until a disappointing display at the Curragh in August. Better latest but still up against it here.
Difficult to see where the improvement is going to come from following three gloomy maiden efforts in August. Looks opposable.
Five-race maiden who is yet to start at less than 100/1. Bottom draw form looks set to continue here.
