Remains in good form since landing a 5f handicap at Down Royal in July off a 12lb lower mark. Tough ask off top weight but should not be underestimated.

Below-par effort on return to action over C&D on good to firm ground last month before making no impression in the closing stages at Cork earlier this month over a similar trip. Handicap mark continues to fall but hard to be confident at present.

Won over C&D in July 2018 which started a profitable spell for the mare. Continuing to run well in defeat in a number of starts over the summer, the daughter of Captain Rio is not to be taken lightly here.

Verdict

PILLAR can confirm his well being by following up his win last month. The Rock Of Gibraltar gelding won a fourth career contest in a Fairyhouse 6f handicap last month off a 6lb lower mark and can hold off the attentions of likely challengers in the shape of Rag Tatter, previous C&D winner, Gopsies Daughter and A Likely Story who finished third in a 16-runner contest behind Pillar and Rag Tatter last month. Top weight, Bahlwan and C&D winner Face Off should not be underestimated.
  1. Pillar
  2. Rag Tatter
  3. Gopsies Daughter
