Sole win came at Leopardstown at 1m2f and largely running well in defeat since, including a good third at Royal Ascot. Disappointed in the closing stages last time out at that same track; this step back in trip may suit and one for the shortlist.

Won a Leopardstown claimer for Ger Lyons last month, but could run just respectably on debut for new yard returned to handicap company at Killarney next time. Not beaten too far over C&D last time out but others preferred.

Solid enough 80-rated handicapper for trainer Mark Johnston winner of his final two starts on the AW at Wolverhampton and Kempton for the yard. Has been placed on last two starts when not winning and looks reasonably well-weighted.

Has looked in the handicapper's grip since scoring at Leopardstown in August 2018; now back to a reasonable mark but question mark about his fitness (has been off the track since June).

Bounce back from a few below par performances to score well over course and distance last week; won well that day so there may be more to come despite a fairly hefty rise in the weights.

Six-time winner but hasn't scored under either code for three years. Out of sorts so far this campaign and handicapper has been slow to lend a hand so more needed if he is to figure.

Six-times winner at this track who has been a shade below his best over the summer on turf; return to AW will obviously suit and looks to be fairly handicapped at present; one to note.

Very consistent gelding who ran one of his better races last time out at The Curragh when running on well to take second place over 1m4f. Looks nicely weighted at present and it would be no surprise to see him run well.

Bagged a second career win when landing a Down Royal 1m2½ handicap on soft ground last month off an 7lb lower mark. Struggled slightly off revised mark last time out at Listowel and could be similar story again.

Several respectable efforts in handicaps for William Haggas this year, but not progressing, and sold for 60,000 gns to current connections. Not disgraced on recent efforts at The Curragh and Listowel and worth a market check here.

Better hurdler and has only made three maiden appearances on the Flat to date and although placed in all three may find things tough on his handicap debut.

50/1 winner of the Curragh Ladies Derby and followed that up with a solid run in a competitive event at Leopardstown. Excellent chance if reproducing that form on a track he has won five times.

Just one maiden win to his name and although he has been running reasonably over a variety of trip does not make much appeal even though he is quietly slipping down the handicap.

Fairly consistent maiden but even on her two placed efforts she never looked like winning; however, she will be have been learning with each run and may appreciate this step up in trip.

Betting

Forecast

Eminence (2/1), Forest View (9/2), Moktamel (11/2), Dalileo (8/1), Lyrical Attraction (8/1), Moonmeister (12/1), Persian Lion (16/1), Tony The Gent (16/1), Park Row (16/1), Politicise (16/1), Building Bridges (16/1), Convara (20/1), Spruce Meadows (25/1), Le Vagabond (33/1), Timemakesitfine (40/1)

Verdict

MOONMEISTER still looks on a reasonable mark after is currently running full of confidence after struggling earlier in the year. Add those facts to his ability to act at this track and the eight-year-old has an excellent chance of recording his sixth course victory. Eminence may appreciate this step back in trip but it remains to be seen if he is racing off a fair handicap mark at present; nonetheless, he is likely to be popular in the betting ring. Dalileo is a very consistent sort and it would be no surprise to see him turn his preference for an AW surface to another victory while Timemakesitfine is an outsider who may run well.
