20:00 Dundalk Fri 7 December 2018
Five wins from nine starts here but the veteran may find it tough going stepping up in trip in this company.
Had a spell in the UAE earlier in the year and has been well beaten in a number of below-par starts since. Plenty to prove on stable debut.
Showed plenty of promise on venue debut last month when third of 11 behind Commander Won. Triple distance winner can go well here.
Off the mark at the eight time of asking in a maiden here over 1m4f last month and plenty to like about the manner of that success. Second behind the likable Too Precious last time out and one to be interested in here.
One from seven, useful on the Flat and makes his AW debut here. Looks a progressive type and shortlisted in this contest.
Recently hurdling but won over C&D in February off a 4lb lower mark. Plenty more needed in this group.
Well held and never a factor in a number of gloomy efforts over the larger obstacles since May. Hard to fancy on Poltrack debut.
Winner of three of his ten starts here the latest coming over 1m4f in September off an 8lb lower mark. Beaten since and likely to struggle a little in this contest.
10-race maiden on the Flat who is yet to hit the frame. Others look more convincing at this level.
32-race maiden who is without success in 12 starts on the AW. Well held over C&D in January and this looks a tall order on return to the track.
10-race maiden who has been well held on all starts to date. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
