510-0OR: 70D

Winner of two of his 15 Flat starts on turf, the gelding is holding his form rather well of late and is worthy of consideration. Word of caution with jockey without a winner in 22 rides this term.

59-13OR: 69D

Experienced distance winner who is better than his most recent start at the Galway festival suggests. Now racing 2lb lower than last winning mark, but holds place claims given the form of the yard. Pilot nought from 23 since January.

59-11OR: 67D

Landed the second race of his career when winning at Leopardstown in June off a 5lb lower mark. Solid rider in the saddle with 15 wins from 155 rides this term and three from 23 in the last 14 days.

49-10OR: 66

Winner of a Fairyhouse maiden for his former yard but failed to add to that total in five races with John Feane. Plenty of questions to answer at present with apprentice nought from 49 this season.

79-10OR: 66

Gelding more suited to the AW surface at Dundalk but has not been disgraced in three recent starts on turf in May. Place claims, though rider without a winner in 35 starts this term.

39-8OR: 69

One from 14 starts with his sole win coming in the care of Hugo Palmer last term. Well held in six starts for current connections and a tough ask for claimer who is two from 42 since January.

79-7OR: 63CD

Strong C&D form winning two of his three starts over the combination, hitting the frame in the other start. Dangerous racing 4lb below last winning mark with pilot among the winners at the Curragh last week.

49-4OR: 60

Didn't manage to win for Ivan Furtado but shaped with promise on a couple of occasions. Last of 14 well beaten on stable debut on the AW at Dundalk when last seen in December. Looks a tall order for rider with just four runs under his belt.

59-4OR: 60

Very lightly raced after just the four starts. Turf/handicap debut when midfield at Fairyhouse last month before a promising run at Leopardstown earlier this month. Worth a market check with five-race winning pilot in the saddle.

49-2OR: 58

Possibly ran as as well as could be expected following a 608 day break when finishing seventh of 14, on stable debut, beaten 7½L at Roscommon last month. Market likely to be the best guide with apprentice without a win in 18 rides this term.

39-1OR: 62D

Hints of improvement in three starts this term finishing 4½L adrift of the winner on his latest start at Fairyhouse last month. Can give a good account of himself, though apprentice has just three rides to his name this season.

39-0OR: 61

Has arrived at the yard in good sorts winning on stable debut at Killarney over 1m before finishing second of 13 beaten ½L off her new mark last month. Carries a penalty for recent deeds but leading player for two-race winning pilot.

38-13OR: 60

10-race maiden, handicap mark continues to fall following an opening rating of 73. Out of sorts recently and this looks a tough call for rider who is one from 37 mounts this term.

38-12OR: 59

10-race maiden, yet to hit the frame in nine Flat starts on turf. Possibly best watched here unless market suggests otherwise with experienced apprentice in the saddle who is nought from five rides in Ireland this term.

38-9OR: 56

Lightly raced filly who has shown little or no signs of ability in three starts since May. Needs to improve for apprentice, one from 37 rides this season.

38-8OR: 55

First Reserve: Five-race maiden not beaten far in an improved effort at the Curragh earlier this month. Could be of minor interest if getting in to the race.

38-8OR: 55

Second Reserve: Yet to show any real improvement for the switch to handicaps, but the drop to 7f allowed him to offer some encouragement when he was fifth at this track last time out. Place claims if building on that back at 1m.

Third Reserve: Has failed to beat any of his 29 rivals home on his last couple of starts in October and on return to action at Ballinrobe last month.

Betting

Forecast

Never Rains (7/2), Youceeyouceecee (5/1), Watchman (11/2), Kasbah (8/1), Cyrus Dallin (8/1), Newgirlintown (10/1), Goodnite Irina (12/1), Barend Boy (16/1), Nothing To Lose (16/1), Hummingbird (20/1), Rinty Maginty (20/1), Prime Chief (22/1), Born Invincible (25/1), Out On Friday (28/1), Dingle Bay (33/1), Sevenaday (33/1), Castrogiovanni (33/1), Sheedy (50/1)

Verdict

It may pay to side with the in form apprentice, Gavin Ryan who takes the ride on the five-year-old mare, GOODNITE IRINA. The filly won over a similar trip as recently as June off a 5lb lower mark while her experienced pilot boasts three winners from 23 rides in the last 14 days. The solid and consistent, Youceeyouceecee can emerge as the biggest danger, while top weight Cyrus Dallin and the Denis Hogan-trained, Never Rains can battle for the minor honours.
