21:00 Dundalk Fri 7 December 2018
A winner in France and shaped well on his return from an absence/debut for this yard and once again when behind Too Precious last month. Drop in trip may suit.
Second of 11 beaten 3L behind Massif Central last month over C&D off a similar mark. Entitled to make the shortlist.
Course winner who has placed over C&D. Beaten favourite here over 1m4f on latest start in October. Market likely to reveal expectations on first start for new yard.
C&D winner in September off a 16lb lower mark. Has since been victorious over further and continues in a rich vein of form. Not easy to discount.
C&D winner over two years ago off a 21lb lower mark. First time tongue-tie unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Formerly in the care of trainer Eve Johnson Houghton and made a promising C&D debut last month finishing fifth of 11. Worthy of a market check.
Useful 87-rated handicapper over the summer for Ed Dunlop. Looks up against on debut for new connections in this company.
Three from 12 on turf but without a win in seven starts here but ran well in defeat last month when finishing second of 11 beaten a head behind Reckless Lad over C&D. Raised 5lb for the run but holds strong place claims.
One from 14 here and without a win for over 12-months but signs of a return to form last month over C&D when finishing second of 14, 2L adrift of the improving Too Precious. Needs to improve but not ruled out.
Course winner on four occasions which includes a sole win over C&D. Behind Secret Wizard on most recent start but now racing off a 5lb lower mark than his last win.
Winner of no less than six C&D contests the most recent of which came 12-months ago off a similar mark. Needs to break better but now racing 3lb lower than last winning mark.
Distance winner but without success on six occasions at this venue. Last of 10 on his two most recent visits to the venue and best avoided in current run of form.
Last of 10 on return to action for the filly at Nottingham in June following an absence of over 12-months on her final start for trainer James Tate. Hard to see her making any significant impact.
Won three in a row on AW for Mark Johnston a couple of winters ago but hasn't won since. Well down the field on three starts here last month and others preferred.
