Won over C&D on his second outing as a four-year-old (was a late starter and missed his juvenile and 3-Y-O seasons) but in good form lately. Finished a close second the last twice and given a chance by the handicapper off the same mark. Player.
Hasn't won since his debut on the AW at Dundalk and recent form has been moderate since his return. Others make more appeal.
Won this race in 2017 and has a good overall record at this track. Needs to up the ante after a couple of poor runs since winning at Down Royal in May. The drop back to 5f will suit.
Reasonable form when with Bryan Smart in the UK but has yet to really fire since joining his current trainer. Has C&D experience and the return to turf won't be an issue. Could be a surprise package.
Won at Down Royal in May but two starts since have seen him being expensive to follow. Capitulated tamely last time and even the 2lb lower mark isn't enough to merit a win only recommendation.
Ran well when fourth over 6f at Naas last Saturday and is only 4lb higher than his last winning mark. Well handicapped on old form but 5f is possibly a bit sharp for him these days.
Won at Sligo (6f, good) in May but found 7f beyond him last time out. Concerning that he's never raced over this shorter distance before and latest effort suggested he might not be the speediest of this bunch.
Mainly plied his trade on the AW during his time with David Barron but did win once over the minimum trip during that period. Respectable effort to be fourth when last seen but a lot of guess work involved now he starts out for a new trainer.
Form figures make for uninspiring reading since his last win, which came in a claimer on the AW at Dundalk. Hardly raised a gallop last time and is probably best left alone here too.
Solid run when third here on his penultimate start but not so effective at Bellewstown latest; becoming hard to predict and has tumbled in the ratings as a result.
Won this last year, which started a profitable spell for the mare; she's only 2lb higher and there were encouraging signs last time out (Early Call, Wild Bob Cat, and Captain Power held on that form). One to consider with conditions set to suit.
Should strip fitter after his belated start to the current season but has poor strike-rate (3-62) and is 4lb above his last winning mark.
Mixed form this season and is yet to win a race despite dropping in the ratings. The weight allowance isn't enough to tempt a play after a poor showing at Bellewestown at the start of this month.
Ran a blinder in the Bellewstown race with ties in a a few of these and would have rock solid claims if able to dish out some of the same here. Still relatively unexposed over 5f and merits an interest from 1lb lower than her last run.
2lb out of the handicap and arrives here with a lot to prove. Very stiff test on these terms.
