6/1

Dundalk specialist who rarely runs a poor race at this track; has raced just once since January when well down the field in a Leopardstown handicap; looks one of the more likely types back on her favourite surface.

Had been running some fair races in defeat until disappointing on latest start at Limerick in July; hard to assess after absence but every chance if fit and racing to his best form.

Fair chaser and hurdler who only makes the very occasional appearance on the flat; best effort was back in 2016 so difficulties in assessing his chance; maybe the market will provide some clues.

Lightly raced maiden not seen out since 2018; needs to improve vastly on all known form to get serious here.

Veteran dual purpose who did win over course and distance last year but does not look well handicapped at present and others easily preferred.

Has been in better form than most of these on the flat and over hurdles; would not need to improve too much on his two latest runs at Ballinrobe to be a leading contender.

18-race maiden on turf the daughter of Vocalised finished well down the field on her latest start here last week. Hard to see why she will make the necessary improvement to go close.

Sprang a big surprise when winning at Navan earlier this month, running on well to lead on the line; followed up over 1m2f at this track latest; step up in trip may suit and certainly one to note.

Has run respectably on all six starts here without really threatening to win. Liable to find a couple stronger once again.

Just one win from 18 starts but never seems to finish too far away; down a few more pounds in the handicap and looks to have solid each way claims.

Very poor form throughout his career and impossible to make a case for from 7lb out of the weights.

Only made the frame once in nine starts and will find this a tough task racing from out of the handicap.

Relatively lightly raced and probably open to more improvement than most; would not need to improve too much to be battling for a place at the very least and certainly one to note in the betting.

Verdict

In what looks a fairly dire race to close proceedings, a chance is taken with DOI SUTHEP who will not jump out as an obvious candidate but he does have the advantage of two decent recent runs. He met trouble in running last time out at Navan and had previously been doing his best work in the closing stages at Gowran Park. Magi Gal ran the best race of her career in defeat last time out at this track and a repeat of that performance over this extra distance should see her holding every chance in the closing stages. Ingleby Mackenzie has run well enough on his latest two starts to suggest he could run a fair race of today's weight.
