Has struggled alarmingly since winning a Roscommon 1m2f handicap off a similar mark in June. Will need to raise overall profile to play a role here.

Running well in a number of starts over hurdles since July, winning at Cork in August. Without success in eight starts on the Flat and needs to improve on even her best form on the level to have a chance in this contest.

Holding his form well since winning for the first time in five starts at Gowran Park in May off a 10lb lower mark. Could do with a change of luck and holds strong place claims.

11-race maiden without a win in seven Flat starts on turf. Hints of promise in a Ballinrobe maiden in July but back to old dismal form when finishing 10L adrift of the winner at Roscommon recently.

Has shown little in the way of aptitude in three starts since winning at Gowran Park in May off a 1lb lower mark. Hard to place any faith in.

Lightly-raced gelding in the last two years. Not seen since finishing down the field in a Listowel 1m handicap 12 months ago. 6lb below last winning mark but up against it in this contest.

Without a win in 14 Flat starts on turf, the gelding has been running with great consistency over the summer and deserves a change in luck. Hard to totally dismiss.

Running well in defeat in a number of starts in big-field handicaps over the summer. 4lb below last winning mark and likely to go well once again.

Dual winner at Gowran Park this season including by a neck over 1m three starts ago. Worth a market check in first-time cheekpieces.

Career best effort remains his third of 20 beaten 5L on debut at Naas last November. Five races down the line the gelding is still looking no nearer to breakthrough success.

Best effort came at Naas last month when defying expectations to finish second in a big field handicap over 6f. Not disgraced since but this still looks a tall order on overall form shown.

Solid and consistent sort not running 27lb lower than last winning mark. Second of 14 in three of his last four starts in the last month and another bold show is more than likely.

Six-race maiden on turf, sent off as well backed favourite on his most recent starts at Sligo and Fairyhouse when last seen in May. Now with third trainer for his seventh career starts and worth a check in the market.

Forecast

Njord (5/1), Kudbegood (11/2), Tribal Path (13/2), Khafaaq (17/2), Meryems Way (9/1), Stormy Tale (10/1), Karannelle (10/1), We'll Go Again (10/1), Autumn Mist (12/1), Dont Quit (12/1), Voyageofdiscovery (12/1), Queen Amidala (12/1), Ben Alexander (14/1), Griffyndor (25/1), Isle Of Shadows (25/1), Hattie Amarin (33/1), Zathura (33/1), War Anthem (33/1), Snoozing Indian (66/1)

Verdict

VOYAGEOFDISCOVERY has been running solidly this term, and, running 4lb lower than last winning mark, can land the spoils here ahead of the likes of the luckless, Kudbegood, who can emerge as the biggest danger. The Shelia Lavaery-trained, Njord, second at Killarney last month and Meryems Way, in first-time cheekpieces can battle Trbal Path for the minor placings.
