5/2

Has four course wins to his name and only narrowly denied in a C&D hat-trick last time. Nudged up another 1lb but clearly thriving at present.

Hasn't won since 2015 but showed he retained ability off the back of sizable absence in a couple of starts last summer. Well beaten on another return from a lengthy absence earlier in the week and probably best watched at present.

Won three in a row on AW for Mark Johnston a couple of winters ago but hasn't won since and well beaten in a couple of more recent AW starts. Yet to win on Polytrack and others preferred.

A winner over hurdles but had to wait until the 16th time of asking to win on the Flat, a course success last time. Step up in trip could unlock some improvement but a 9lb rise for the win looks a little harsh.

Won three times here last winter but has generally struggled from his revised mark and he was well beaten here last time out. Bit to prove at present.

Won her maiden here over C&D back in 2016 but hasn't managed a win since. Leading apprentice takes the ride and starting to look well-handicapped on some of her form so can't be ruled out.

Losing run is mounting up now and he was well beaten on yard debut last time. Up in trip but others make more appeal, particularly from this wide draw.

Got his head back in front at Sligo in the summer but his form either side of that run suggests and the form of that race suggests he was a bit fortunate that day. Well beaten over C&D last time and opposable from just 1lb lower.

Three-time C&D winner and very well-handicapped on that form but she's on a long losing run at present and has shown very few signs of a revival this summer. Needs to bounce back off a break on return to AW.

Showed some promise in three AW starts for her previous yard but has looked regressive of late and she remains a maiden after nine starts. Wide draw not ideal and hard to fancy.

Won her maiden here in January 2017 but that was over 7f and she failed to build on that up in trip. Has shown very little since joining this outfit, over hurdles and on the Flat.

French winner who showed nothing on debut for this yard at Leopardstown last month. May do better but needs to leave that effort way behind here.

9/2

C&D winner in April and has been very consistent since, including a win at Naas in September. He's the type to bounce back from a below par effort at Cork last time and drawn well for one that likes to be ridden prominently.

Betting

Forecast

Park Row (5/2), Dancing Doll (4/1), Universal Focus (9/2), Touch Of Gold (6/1), California Lad (9/1), Nebulla (14/1), Magen's Moon (16/1), Sketching (20/1), Poitin (20/1), Isharah (20/1), Fivehundredmiles (25/1), La Hougue (33/1), Glenbank King (33/1)

Verdict

PARK ROW has been improving since joining this outfit, particularly on all-weather and he performed well last time out when bidding for a course and distance hat-trick. Universal Focus is a model of consistency and shouldn't be ruled out while the mare Touch Of Gold could improve for the step up in trip.
