Comes here on a hat-trick of wins following dual success at Cork and the fitting of a tongue-tie. Racing 12lb higher than first win earlier this month but still in good heart.

Second of 15 beaten a neck on return to action in a Bellewstown 1m handicap before disappointing at Listowel over this trip last month. May need more time.

Well down the field in a couple of September start on heavy ground. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Running well in defeat on the AW at Dundalk of late but remains a 14-race maiden on turf. May find one or two in better form.

Solid and consistent performer in four starts since winning a Roscommon handicap off a 5lb lower mark in August. Genuine sort who has hit the frame on the ground.

Generally running well in defeat hitting the frame on a couple of occasions over this trip previously. Deserves a change of luck.

Solid and consistent on the AW at Dundalk up to the turn of the year and has been lightly raced since. Finished sixth of 20 not beaten far in a Leopardstown handicap on heavy ground in April. Well held last month at Roscommon.

Broke a run of ten defeats in a row when landing a Gowran Park 1m handicap last month off a 5lb lower mark. Well held since but holds strong place claims with ground to suit.

Two from 26 turf starts on the Flat with his last win coming in an Ayr 7f handicap over 12-months ago off a 7lb higher mark. Operates on the surface but looks up against it here.

Had looked regressive before turning in a better efforts at Dundalk over the summer. Needs to translate that back to turf but not without hope if doing so.

Not won since April 2016 and now races off a 23lb lower mark than his last winning rating. Opposable on recent form.

A surprise winner of and an extended 6f handicap at Cork in May but not been able to reproduce the effort in three starts since, though plenty to like about his last run at Hamilton on soft ground. Place possibilities.

Has shown a modicum of ability in two starts over sprint trips but was left floundering when stepped up to a mile at Navan in September. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.

First Reserve: Goes well at Dundalk on the AW but has produced a number of laboured runs on turf in her career. Looks vulnerable in this company.

Verdict

Solid and consistent performer HATTON CROSS has run well in defeat in four starts since winning a Roscommon handicap off a 5lb lower mark in August. The nine-year-old goes well with give in the ground and finished second of 15 over C&D on heavy ground 12-months ago off a similar mark. Aunty Audrey, Stormy Air, with important claimer on, Footstepsintime and Lachet all go well with cut in the ground and are deserving of consideration.
