Sole win on turf came in a Listowel maiden over 1m4f on his racecourse debut over 12 months ago. Ran well back at the same venue last month over 1m4f and requires respect stepping up in trip.

Recently seen running over hurdles including a 2¾L win in a Bellewstown 2m4f handicap in August. Could be dangerous back down to last winning mark on the Flat.

Nine-race maiden on his Flat starts on turf. Running with credit in defeat in a couple of starts over this trip in August before a dismal run at Clonmel earlier this month. Comes into the reckoning if forgiving latest run.

Running well in a number of starts since August including when winning for the second time in his career when landing a Roscommon 1m4f handicap on heavy ground off a 6lb lower mark before running well once again at Galway and Cork.

Below-par 18-race maiden. Has failed to hit the frame in six Flat starts on turf. Hasn't looked a winner in waiting in a number of recent races since August both over hurdles and on the Flat.

Off the mark for connections at the fifth time of asking on the Flat when landing a Limerick good ground handicap over 2m1f in June off a 4lb lower mark. Well held since and looks vulnerable in this company.

Showed little in pair of maidens this summer for Dermot Weld and has made limited improvement in a couple of starts for current connections. Looks a tall order on form shown.

Recently seen winning over hurdles at Ballinrobe last month the daughter of Intikhab may be capable of a bold show on the balance of her latest run on the Flat when third of 16 at Leopardstown in June over 1m7f.

One from 14 Flat starts on turf, the veteran has recently completed a fruitless summer jumping campaign at Galway last month. Ran well in defeat on return to the Flat on the AW at Dundalk recently on stable debut.

Disappointing daughter of Jeremy well held when failing to hit the frame in nine dismal efforts on the Flat. Hard to recommend on recent evidence.

Frustrating colt, now without a win in 11 starts on turf. This signals a major step up in trip for the son of Australia and possibly best watched here unless market vibes suggest otherwise.

Running with credit in defeat in a number of starts over the summer. Clear and obvious chance in this contest if forgiving latest run at the Curragh last month.

Nothing of note in a number of dismal efforts on the Flat and over hurdles since the geldings debut in June. Plenty of questions to answer at present.

Posted a career best when finishing second of 11 beaten 4L at Naas over 1m2f before disappointing at Down Royal and on her latest start when finishing down the field at Cork earlier this month.

First Reserve: Pulled up on hurdling debut when last seen in a Killarney maiden in July. Five-race maiden on the Flat and unlikely to be troubling the judge if making the line-up.

Forecast

Harvest Bow (6/4), Bay Hill (7/2), Mallacoota (9/1), Whitsunday Islands (10/1), Liars Corner (11/1), Marine One (14/1), Ilikehim (14/1), Vitudurum (16/1), Solar Heat (16/1), National Identity (16/1), Hurricane Sky (16/1), Pepper'n Salt (20/1), Lleyton (33/1), High Spec (33/1), Colour Me In (50/1), Shes Gold (50/1), El Chico Mejor (66/1), Realpolitik (66/1)

Verdict

HARVEST BOW was recently seen winning over hurdles but it's her third of 16 on the Flat running over 1m7f that catches the eye. The daughter of Intikhab has a number of conditions to suit here and can add a second career win on the Flat by landing the spoils at the expense of the frustrating Aidan O'Brien-trained Whitsunday Islands who could be on a favourable mark in this contest. Liars Corner and Bay Hill appear capable of grabbing a place in this company. The Denis Hogan-trained, Marine One and Vitudurum who has been running well in defeat recently can go well at a price.
