Returned from long absence in July at Fairyhouse and in all three starts since he has finished stone last; really difficult to recommend even though he is very well handicapped on the best of his old form.

Runner-up on his last three starts including a couple of solid efforts at the Galway festival two days apart. Returns after a short break but his consistency has been noted by the handicapper and might struggle to win off his current mark.

Has been a struggle to train but everything came together last time out at Gowran Park when easily winning an apprentice event over this trip; up a hefty 11lbs for that success but could still be in the mood; interesting.

Gutsy and genuine filly who is currently on a 17-race losing run but solid and consistent efforts still see her on a 3lb higher mark than her last win. Another bold bid likely. First-time cheekpieces and tongue-tie tried today.

Completed a hat-trick of wins earlier this season when he scored at Bellewstown (1m). Since then he has struggled off his handicap mark. Was sixth of 19 last time at Leopardstown (1m). Is down 2lb now. Each-way claims.

Off the mark for connections at the fifth attempt, landing a Gowran Park handicap off a 1lb lower mark over 1m last month. Would not have appreciated the step up in trip on latest start and worthy of consideration back over this distance.

Has returned from mammoth absence in good form this season, registering career-best win in 1m Gowran Park handicap on penultimate start; needs to bounce back from disappointing effort last time out and step back in trip not arguably ideal.

Running well in defeat of late including when fourth of 14 from a poor draw at Roscommon last time out. Positives outweigh the negatives in this contest and the Zebedee gelding should be among the leading players.

Took a while for the penny to drop but the gelding has shown he is capable of winning races on his last two appearances at Galway and Limerick over similar trips; looks on the upgrade and very much respected in this contest.

Failed to land a hat-trick of wins when finishing third of 15 beaten 3¾L in a Roscommon 1m4f handicap on heavy ground earlier this month; back with a win when favourite over 1m1f here yesterday.

Better effort when sharply stepped up in trip (6f to 1m4f) last time out at Roscommon; looks nicely handicapped now but difficult to assess dropping back to this trip. First-time visor applied.

Nine-race maiden, has tried a couple of handicap over much further recently to little effect. Mark is declining and very best of maiden efforts might give him a slight chance.

Lightly-raced and difficult to assess; struggled on only handicap appearance at Galway in early August; has been dropped a few pounds but hard to make a promising case for.

Couple of decent efforts this spring marked her out as one to follow but she was a little disappointing on her last two starts - most recently at Leopardstown. Early days though, so could easily bounce back.

1st Reserve - Very experienced gelding who is looking for his first win since June 2017.

Forecast

Franklyn (7/4), Emphatic (5/1), Segenhoe (7/1), Solomons Seal (8/1), Blankiedoodie (9/1), Starlite Dancer (10/1), Passing Trade (11/1), Bajan Excell (12/1), Bigger And Better (14/1), Pillmakers Hill (14/1), Khafaaq (18/1), Marwari (20/1), Avalanche (25/1), Meryems Way (25/1), We'll Go Again (25/1), Tracker Saga (33/1), Pursuit Of Magic (33/1), Tennesse Waltz (50/1), Ustinov (100/1)

Verdict

Quite a difficult race to assess but a tentative selection goes to BIGGER AND BETTER who showed some of the form he had shown in the UK to easily beat a big field at Gowran Park last time out. He is up in the weights but could still be capable of better. Tennesse Waltz has been running below his usual standard of late but perhaps the application of first-time cheekpieces may have the desired effect - he races here only 1lb higher than when scoring earlier in the season at Tipperary. Starlite Dancer seems to be slowly coming to hand and while does not seem a likely winner, could run into some place prize money based on two good recent efforts.
