Lightly raced and showed some very progressive form when winning back-to-back races in style over this C&D and then at the Curragh. Well fancied but disappointed in two very strong handicaps since but could be hard to beat back at this level.
Proved progressive this season and built on two narrow defeats when a winner over this C&D. Not disgraced at the Curragh last time and a decent run can't be discounted but others likely better handicapped.
Won in France at Vichy last August and ran a big race at Down Royal on last month's debut when hampered early and got checked and denied a run late on. Finished with purpose and likely to come on for the run. Likely contender if building on the run.
Broke his maiden tag over 6f at Naas in May and progressed again on his last two starts, including off unfavourable terms last time. Looks capable of winning off this high a mark and one to consider.
Soft ground winner over this C&D in June and remains 4lb higher. Last three wins of four overall have come at this trip so the drop back from 6f rates a plus. Capable of going well off this mark but needs to leave a poor run behind.
Excellent form as a two-year-old including a fourth place in the Duchess of Cambridge Stakes. Seems best suited by soft ground as when winning a maiden over this C&D in April, so rain would be a plus. Hard task off this mark back in a handicap.
In good form this campaign including when beaten 1½L in a C&D handicap. Registered a head victory at Hamilton last month and now up 5lb. On an upward curve so while this will be much tougher, he could be competitive. First time visor added.
Off the mark at the 13th time of asking in a 5½f Navan maiden last month and then a good fifth in a quick time over an unsuitable 7f at Galway. Probably best at a half or full furlong than this and more needed against his elders.
Front runner scored career win number three at Down Royal in June and not far off that level at the Curragh over 6f a week later. Best suited by dropping back in trip and he doesn't have many miles on the clock. Another bold effort likely.
