Clear on the official ratings has a lot going for him at this level. His latest effort came at a much sterner level of competition and he merits serious consideration despite being on a 9lb higher mark than he was on when he won this race last year.
Enjoyed a good spell last season and claimed two decent little handicaps during the summer. Probably needed the run when he was fifth of nine on his reappearance but can go well again now the fitness levels are topped up.
Lost his way for his former yard and yet to prove he's been freshened up by switching yards. Others are more convincing.
Has form to reverse with Nimitz but better off at the weights and already proved he has the beating of Maricruz, so must be on the shortlist in this company. Down 1lb since last time and 3lb lower than his last winning mark, so well handicapped too.
Lightly raced in comparison to a most and has scope from her current mark after finishing a good second last time out (the winner hasn't done much for the form since though). Needs to conclusively prove her stamina but not to be dismissed lightly.
0-2 on the Flat but entitled to respect on the pick of his Dundalk form; lost his way a tad when last seen, so interesting to see if the betting market suggests the gelding has been freshened up by a break since April.
Best efforts have been over hurdles so far and needs to step up considerably on last month's return to the Flat.
Tries headgear for the first time no doubt in the hope that the filly can better what have been modest performances this season. She has a likelable pedigree but not yet lived up to the billing.
