Four race maiden. Had looked to be getting the hang of things before putting below-par effort in at Cork (6f) at the start of the month. May be set for bold effort in handicap company for top yard however.

Yet to win after five races but penny looks to have dropped with recent two efforts, including 1L fourth in 7f Cork maiden last time out. Cheekpieces on for the first time and must enter calculations.

Put in best effort of her career to date when fourth in 1m Killarney maiden last month. Looks destined to go well in handicap company but given lofty mark and others are more persuasive.

Thrice-raced maiden and offered no impression when sixth in 1m Bellewstown contest on latest start. Could be more suited to handicap company however.

Hasn't won in three starts to date and looked slightly regressive with 7L defeat in 5f Tipperary maiden last time out. Takes a drastic step up in trip for handicap debut.

Started to get the hang of things recently, faring better than the results suggest at both Down Royal and Listowel (1m, soft) on latest start. Ridden too prominently that day and cheekpieces could bring out some more improvement.

Five-race maiden but arguably put up career best when narrow third in 7f Tipperary contest last time. Had the run of the race that day but given a likeable mark for handicap debut.

Experienced sort. Winner at Sligo (5f) in July but unable to reach that level since, including 3L sixth in 1m Listowel Nursery on latest start. 3lb drop in the handicap gives him place claims but looks exposed now.

Hasn't hit the frame in five starts and put in an avaerage performance when sixth of 13 at Down Royal (7f) 18 days ago. A bit more needed but this trip is expected to suit.

Steadily improving with each run and put up best effort to date when second in 7f Down Royal handicap (beating Amelia Jane) at the end of August. On a workable mark and looks set to go well.

Has shown mixed messages during her career so far but looked well-held on her handicap debut at Killarney (1m) on latest start. 3lb drop in weights could see her go well but obvious reservations on recent form.

Forecast

Lampetia (6/1), Mythologic (6/1), Luke Short (7/1), Moondrop (8/1), In From The Cold (9/1), Gunmetal Jack (10/1), Myrcella (10/1), Cursu Mina (10/1), Kenshibu (11/1), Shines Her Light (16/1), Amelia Jane (16/1), Princess Mayson (20/1), Calidus Mirabilis (20/1), Brilliant Question (20/1), Pink Jazz (20/1), Convincer (25/1), Dragon Of Malta (25/1), Bass Reeves (25/1), Auma (28/1), Total Euphoria (33/1), Rythmic Melody (33/1), Eircode (50/1), Golden Glow (50/1)

Verdict

GUNMETAL JACK may have got the run of the race at Tipperary last time without winning but that effort was likeable enough to suggest more could be to come for a workable mark. He may need to be produced late but could have a pull over some rivals. The form of a Down Royal nursery is set to be tested significantly, with the second Myrcella setting the form standard, but may be pressed to the places by Caldius Mirabilis who has a weight pull this time as well as In From The Cold who may go closer with some leniency in the handicap.
