19:30 Dundalk Fri 7 December 2018
Four-time C&D winner, the latest in January off a 5lb higher mark. Not to be taken lightly and holds strong place claims on first start since July.
One from two at this venue and has hit the frame over C&D when finishing second of 11 beaten 1¾L behind Theobald last November. Has the form to make a bold bid.
Kept on well in the closing stages to take King's Field over C&D last month off a 7lb lower mark. Another bold show looks likely.
Dual winner on turf over this trip but well held on only C&D run when seventh of 11 behind a couple of these last month. Others preferred.
Landed a hat-trick of AW win last month over C&D off a 6lb lower mark on just his second start for connections since a move from the yard of Richard Fahey. One for the shortlist in this company.
One win from four starts over C&D but finished adrift of Equitant last month over 7f. Makes little appeal in this contest.
Last win at the Curragh came off a mark of 93 over 18-months ago. Promising AW debut last month finishing fourth of 11 beaten 2¾L adrift of Theobald, but looks up against it here.
Second of 10 over C&D in February off a similar mark but tailed off when last seen in a Leopardstown handicap in July. Best watched on return to action.
