510-0OR: D
4/1

Winner of three of his last four bumper starts since July. The son of Jeremy has plenty to offer making his Flat debut here.

Poor 33-rated handicapper on the Flat and beaten over 180L on a couple of recent spins over hurdles. Impossible to make a case for in this company.

Failed to make the grade for the Ballydoyle operation. Well held and no impression in three starts for current connections and unlikely to be troubling the judge in this contest.

Off the mark over hurdles at the sixth attempt at Ballinrobe in August before winning again at Clonmel early last month. Worth a market check making Flat debut.

Winner of a Clonmel 2m bumper on good ground last month, off the mark on his third start. Interesting newcomer on the Flat and one for the shortlist on debut.

410-0OR:
100/1

Has made a poor start to his career well beaten in a couple of bumper starts since July before finishing down the field in a Gowran Park 1m1½f maiden on soft ground on Flat debut last month. Looks a tall order on form shown.

Modest 96-rated handicap chaser. Third of 12 beaten 7¾L on Flat debut in a Listowel 1m6f soft ground contest last month. Not a forlorn hope but others still more convincing.

59-9OR: BFD
4/1

Bumper winner over 2m½f before getting off the mark over hurdles at Sligo on good ground in August. Appears to have more to offer and very much respected on Flat debut.

9/4

Dual bumper winner who has won one of her two starts over hurdles. Solid and consistent in five starts on the Flat over a variety of trips, finishing runner-up on three occasions. Return to this trip should suit and a leading player.

Es Que Love colt out of a Green Desert mare. Closely related to Kimbali, successful up to 1m½f and Clement, a winner between 7f and 1m. Market likely to reveal chances on debut here for leading National hunt yard.

Gelding by Dark Angel out of a Elnadim mare. Well beaten and no impression in a couple of poor efforts so far. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Will have disappointing leading connections in a number of below-par performances in his four-race career. Looks a little early to be writing off and likely to improve for the step up in trip.

Nothing of note or any hints of ability in four desolate efforts since his debut at Limerick in June. Form doesn't warrant support here.

New Approach filly. Made €200,000 as a yearling. Full-sister to Listed winner Glamorous Approach. Hampered before finishing third of nine on debut in a Leopardstown 1m5f maiden in August. Lively outsider stepping up in trip.

Betting

Forecast

Run For Mary (9/4), Caer (4/1), King Pellinor (4/1), Bentham (4/1), Geolai (11/1), Happy Jacky (12/1), Go West Young Lad (12/1), Estijmaam (14/1), Jazz Toes (16/1), The Ballyboys (20/1), Freetown (25/1), Rock On Aidan (100/1), Right Approval (100/1), Boynagh Prince (100/1), Jeyyaad (100/1)

Verdict

Winner of three of his last four bumper starts since July, BENTHAM can continue in good form here for the Gavin Cromwell yard. The five-year-old can land the closing race holding off potential dangers from the solid and consistent Run For Mary and the Noel Meade-trained Caer, winner of a Sligo maiden hurdle in August. King Pellinor for the Aidan O'Brien yard and the Willie Mullins-trained Go West Young Lad should not be underestimated.
