Smart juvenile but has totally lost his way and not beaten a rival in last five runs. Would need to see a revival before he becomes interesting.
£8,000 from Bryan Smart since last run. Highly tried as a juvenile and interesting to see how he goes in the market for his new shrewd handler.
Two good efforts after joining current trainer before below par effort last time out Blinkers were tried that day and not surprisingly now left off so could well bounce back.
Not disgraced in midfield last two starts and this represents a big drop in class. Now 6lb below her last winning mark and a big player if returning to her best.
Not the easiest to predict and followed up Tipperary win with a rather tame effort at The Curragh last time out.
Has the ability to play a part but his habit of playing up in the stalls and starting slowly could always rear its head.
Below best of late but best form is on testing ground and if rain gets into the ground he is worth a second look.
Now 6lb below win here in the mud in April but hasn't been threatening a repeat of late.
Found 7f too far last time but now down to a more suitable trip and still lightly raced enough to be of interest.
Tough and consistent gelding but all career wins have been at 6f and feeling is the minimum trip is against him.
Went amiss early in the race last time so that run can safely be ignored. Had form in 2017 in stronger handicaps than this and dangerous to dismiss at a course he has won at before.
First go at the minimum trip and needs to improve for it against these seasoned handicappers.
Has had a cracking 2018 and having started her wining run off a mark of 49 she was gaining her fourth win of the year when victorious at The Curragh off 65 in August. No reason to suggest her improvement has finished and not without a chance here.
Small step back when sixth if 11 in Cork handicap at the start of the month and has been dropped 11lb for last four runs. Interesting if money appears but on balance others make more appeal.
Does run his best races at this venue and capable on his day. Possible now that slightly lesser company would see him in a better light.
Won in heavy ground at The Curragh in May but that remains his sole win in 18 turf attempts and percentage call is to look elsewhere.
