18:00 Dundalk Fri 15 February 2019
Without a win over C&D in ten starts but has hit the frame on three previous occasions. Running well in defeat in a number of runs since October and one of the leading players in first time hood.
Winner of one of his six starts over C&D and went close over the combination earlier this month finishing fourth of 13 beaten 2½L. Still 6lb higher than previous win but fancied to go well.
Winner on debut here on the AW landing a 13 runner handicap in November. Beaten since off a 3lb higher mark and may need the run on return to action.
Running well in defeat on a number of starts since the turn of the year including beaten 3½L on each of his last couple of runs last month. Expected to give another decent account of himself in first-time tongue-tie.
13-race maiden who has hit the frame over C&D from three starts. Generally well held over the combination last month including finishing 11th of 14 on most recent start. Still looking no nearer to a breakthrough success.
Impressive figures over C&D winning here in January and hitting the frame on a further three occasions. 7lb higher than last winning mark and should be among the leading players.
Maiden after 16 starts and seemingly lost his way completely since joining current connections including a heavy defeat over C&D when last seen in December. Plenty to prove at present.
Course winner who ran well in defeat on return to action over C&D earlier this month finishing 6L adrift of the winner Gougane Barra. Never been the easiest to catch right.
Winner of a Wolverhampton 7f handicap last month before a 17L defeat over this trip at Newcastle off a 5lb lower mark. Worthy of consideration with the yard boasting a consistent win and place strike rate at this venue in mid February since 2016.
Hurdling more recently but returns to the scene of his last victory when beating 13 rivals by ¾L in April off a 3lb lower mark. Place claims at best.
Long-standing maiden who has been generally running well in defeat since the autumn. Well held over C&D last month in a 14 runner handicap finishing 10th of 14 beaten over 8L. Not ruled out but disappointment of last run to shake off.
Lightly raced eight-race maiden finishing last of 14 on AW debut here last month. Likely to find it tough going.
Well held and no impression in five starts here since October. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Not seen on the track since September 2016, bar a couple of heavy hurdle defeats last summer when finishing last of 14 beaten 25L over C&D last month. First-time blinkers unlikely to get the Windsor Knot gelding off the mark at the 15th attempt.
First Reserve: Nothing of note in a number of career starts to date over similar trips including on AW debut when last seen in November finishing last of 12 beaten 29L at odds of 80/1. Is hard to enthuse over in this company.
Second Reserve: Promising starts in a couple of two-year-old starts when in the care of trainer Richard Hannon but disappointed on stable debut here over 7f when last seen in December. Could be interesting in future handicaps.
