Hasn't gone on since fine Leopardstown second on his seasonal reappearance, including 7L ninth in 1m Gowran Park handicap last time. Regressive and a bit to prove now.
C&D winner who has been in fine form since switching to this yard and rattled up a hat-trick of wins with game success at Lingfield (7f, soft) last month. Versatile ground wise and is a leading contender.
Regular at this track including C&D win in July 2018 but has found life tough since. Modest over 7f here latest and needs to step up on that effort to be competitive. 10lb lower than last winning mark.
Failed to trouble the judge in seven starts this season and weakened tamely to finish ninth in extended 7f Beverley handicap when last seen. Tumbling down the handicap and has a tough task in front of him.
A model of consistency in his last five starts, gaining a deserved success at Hamilton (1m, good) on his penultimate start before a respectable third over C&D. On a workable mark and is shortlisted.
Still a maiden after 14 starts but turned his form around with a neck second in 1m Hamilton handicap on his latest start. Raised 4lb for that effort and may find it hard to compete off his current mark.
Losing run stretches back to C&D win in August 2017 but has been thereabouts in six runs this season. Needs to bounce back from recent Down Royal effort but would be dangerous to discount.
Remains a maiden and inconsistent. Recent 8L defeat over C&D suggests he has plenty to find on ratings.
Uninspiring form this season, including when well-beaten in 6f contest at this track last time. Her current form doesn't offer much appeal.
