19:00 Dundalk Fri 15 February 2019
Winner of three of his nine C&D starts and hit the frame when last seen in September. Worthy of consideration with the yard boasting a consistent win and place strike rate at this venue in mid February since 2016.
Two from eight at the track and already has a winner on the board this year when landing a 5f handicap last month off a 5lb lower mark. One of the more likely types.
Has won five of his 20 starts over this trip and was a solid and consistent performer last summer for trainer Brian Ellison. Likely to improve on stable debut earlier this month here over 5f.
Gallant, solid and consistent front-runner over the years and winner of two of his 15 starts over C&D. Not ruled out but a couple of below par runs to shake off.
Newcastle stalwart who has won three of his 10 starts at the track including last month off a 4lb lower mark. Interesting British raider with notable jockey booking.
Course winner that has won over this trip. Generally well held in two starts since the turn of the year over 5f. Plenty more needed stepping up in trip in this contest.
Winner of one of his three starts over C&D landing the odds off an 18lb lower mark in December. Second of 12 beaten 1¾L over 7f here earlier in the month and one of the more likely types here.
Four from 17 for the Verglas gelding over C&D but is on a long losing run which has included a couple of disappointing efforts last month. Easy to look elsewhere.
Winner over 5f and 7f since December and ran to within 1¼L of Dandys Gold over C&D last month off a 6lb lower mark when finishing second of 13. Holds leading claims.
C&D winner last March off a 6lb higher mark but has disappointed connections since in a series of dismal efforts including finishing last of nine here over 5f last month. Others have more scope for improvement.
One from 10 over C&D hitting the frame on a further six occasions including when finishing second of 14 beaten ½L earlier this month. One to consider on recent displays.
