Had barely beaten a horse home in 2019 but showed improved form at this track last week when finishing 4th of 13. Has been dropped some more in the handicap and entitled to run well again.

Not seen out since a poor effort at Bath in May; had previously run some fair races at Wolverhampton so not totally out of this on best off his form but others preferred.

Had a reasonable level of form when trained in France (mainly handicaps and claimers); no show on Irish debut at Listowel earlier this month; hard to totally write off and market may provide some clues.

Yet to hit the frame in seven starts, though did run a creditable race from out of the handicap at the Galway Festival this year. Others rate as more likely winners.

Slightly improved performance last time out at Navan following three dreadful performances here, at The Curragh and at Leopardstown previously; hard to make a viable case for.

Has been hurdling and chasing but has a reasonable level of form at this track; nevertheless he seems a very unlikely winner even in this lowly company.

Had been in good form in handicaps, winning at Naas over 1m2f before running with credit next time at Killarney; needs to bounce back from a below par run last time but looks one of the more likely types in this contest.

Returns to the level after a spell failing to win over hurdles; still a maiden and has only glimpses of ability throughout his short career; difficult to assess but unlikely to be good enough.

Off the mark for connections at the 17th time of asking on her ninth start on turf when winning at Navan over 1m2f in July; has not looked like winning again off revised mark but fair chance nevertheless.

On a long losing streak and while now looking temptingly handicapped, he has shown little appetite for getting competitive in most recent outings.

Not seen a racecourse for over three years and showed very little ability back then.

Still a maiden on the flat and over hurdles; has hinted at ability in the past but very difficult to make a coherent case for running out of the handicap.

Won at Perth in April and has generally been running well in defeat. That win, however, remains his only win in 42 starts which tells its own story. Not without a chance on best of known form but not one to get too excited about.

Looks reasonably well handicapped on the best of his old form but it's been a long time since he has visited the winner's enclosure and the wait might go on.

Forecast

Cacique Royale (1/1), Navajo Ridge (11/2), Cherryville (15/2), Yamato (8/1), Millford Sound (8/1), Quite Subunctious (11/1), Pak Army (12/1), Oromo (12/1), Alpine Peak (20/1), Lean And Keen (20/1), El Chico Mejor (20/1), Pivotal Man (20/1), Liam Eile (28/1), Brokopondo (33/1), High Spec (33/1), Nancy D'Alton (33/1), Swift Justice (33/1)

Verdict

MILLFORD SOUND needs to put a below par effort last time out at Sligo but his form prior to that (including winning at Naas) should see him being entitled to land a race that will not take too much winning given the paucity of talent and in-form horses in the line up. Cacique Royale showed enough on his latest start to suggest he could be making the frame in similar contests in the near future. Quite Subunctious is another who has won recently and while not looking too well handicapped, it would not be a surprise to see him running well.
