Has been generally consistent this season and only just failed to win for the second time this season at Galway last time out. Would need a career best to win this but obviously in good heart and should run a big race.

Has been hurdling but returned last week over six furlongs at Leopardstown where she showed up well for a long way before tiring close home. Hard to assess over this trip but one to consider and worth a market check.

Rewarded for her consistency earlier in the season when winning well at Thirsk in June where he ran on strongly when trained by Willian Haggas. First start for new connections; holds every chance and could still be improving.

Fair effort at this track over slightly further following a long absence when finishing third in April. Has obviously had some training problems but goes well fresh and very much one to consider.

Had some fair form in France last season but struggled has struggled on two appearances this term; interesting change of stable and any market moves would be a strong indication of his chances.

Still a maiden but generally runs his race without getting totally competitive. May need to drop a few more pounds in the handicap until he breaks his duck. First-time blinkers may help.

Just two appearances in the past two years suggest there have been some training problems with this gelding but his most recent effort in July was highly encouraging. If all is well he has the ability to run a big race.

Gowran winner in May but shade disappointing on last three runs after initially coping well with handicap rise. Must bounce back to his very best to get competitive.

Off the mark for connections at the 13th time of asking landing a Ballinrobe 1m1f contest on yielding to soft ground off a 3lb lower mark. Modest form in a few of her starts since but more needed in this contest.

Has to race off a 8lb higher mark thanks to a god victory last time out at Galway. Generally a consistent sort and maybe still improving, he still faces a tough ask here especially dropping back in trip.

Dual AW winner but 0-13 on turf and despite a sliding handicap mark his consistent run of midfield finishes likely to continue here.

Showed promise when returning from long absence to finish placed at Fairyhouse in July. Disappointed next time out a Galway and needs to put that run behind him to get competitive.

Lower mark now than his Curragh win last year but that's due to five uncompetitive efforts in 2019 and he isn't easy to fancy here.

Has slowly been improving with each race but whether she is capable of winning on her handicap debut remains to be seen; market may give the best guide to her chances.

Possible excuses last time out at Gowran Park; had previously put in two solid placed efforts at Fairyhouse and Leopardstown. Solid place claims if running up to his recent best.

Forecast

Beckwith Place (9/4), Current Option (6/1), Imposing Supreme (7/1), Improving (9/1), Massa Lubrense (10/1), Lord Rapscallion (16/1), Limit Long (16/1), Facethepuckout (18/1), Muzbid (20/1), Silk Cravat (20/1), Fit For Function (20/1), Tonkinese (20/1), Sors (20/1), Bopedro (25/1), Elegant Drama (25/1), Merited (33/1), Dandys Gold (50/1), Throwaway Line (50/1)

Verdict

CURRENT OPTION was an easy enough winner of a novice stakes at Thirsk over this trip on easy ground in June and makes his Irish debut with every chance of following up. He could still be on the upgrade and looks the one to beat. Bopedro is another making his debut on Irish soil. The colt had some useful form as a two-year-old in France and a change of scenery may have done him some good. Imposing Supreme will need to improve to get competitive but that might not be out of the question and market support would bode well.
