Events have not gone to plan in a couple of recent starts, awkward start and getting upset in the stalls on both starts at Cork when last seen in May. In the right hands to make a lively return.
tough and genuine gelding who has struggled a little off a revised mark since landing a Bellewstown 1m handicap in July. May find one of two better handicapped sorts lurking.
Hasn't won since her maiden success back in 2017 and needs to improve on a dismal effort over 5f at the Curragh last month finishing 12th of 20 beaten over 12L.
Struggling for form this campaign but all his best efforts have come with cut in the ground and appears to be first-string on jockey bookings.
Deservedly off the mark at the 15th time of asking for patient connections when landing a Curragh 6f soft ground maiden last month off a 11lb lower mark. Open to more improvement.
Continues to run with credit in defeat and holding her form well since landing a Cork 5f contest off a 10lb lower mark in June. Can give a good account here with conditions to suit.
Mixed messages in a number of starts since April for the daughter of Zoffany when landing a Naas 6f maiden. Repeat of recent efforts should see her in the hunt for more prize money.
Has continued to run with credit and hold his form since landing a fourth career Flat win on turf in a Naas 5f contest in July off a 2lb higher mark. Capable of hitting the frame on his current mark.
Winner of two of his 11 career starts in France successful between 6f and 6½f when in the hands of trainer Matthew Palussiere. Last but one in a 20-runner Cork maiden on a desperate stable debut earlier this month.
Highly popular veteran who was top-class in his prime, but is on the decline nowadays. 26lb lower than last winning mark and difficult to see where improvement is coming from at his age.
Finally off the mark for connections at the 18th attempt when landing a Cork 5f contest on yielding to soft ground off an 8lb lower mark last month. Life more difficult under a penalty but very much a leading player here.
Genuine sort, winner of five of his 52 starts on turf including a win over C&D. Out of sorts when last seen in July and this looks a tough ask on return to action.
Running well and holding his form well since winning for the first time in 20 attempts at Hamilton in July. Place claims for gelding who has hit the frame on three occasions from seven starts over C&D.
