Has a record of one win and three places from seven starts over C&D. Last win came over the combination in March off a 1lb higher mark. Well held in three starts on turf since August but folly to rule him out back at this venue.
Awin and two places from seven C&D starts. Out of form recently and more needed here but not one to put a line through just yet.
Goes well here hitting the frame on a couple of occasions over C&D. Running with credit in a number of defeats over the summer on turf and requires plenty of respect in this contest.
Course winner that has also won over this trip. Yard among the winners at this track in the last month hitting the target on two occasions with this Excellent Art gelding being one of them, successful over 6f off a 6lb lower mark.
Well held finishing third of four runners as the 5/4 beaten favourite on his last visit here in April. Running well in defeat on turf over the summer and enters calculations in this contest.
A win and a place to her name from three starts over C&D. The win came in April off a 7lb lower mark. Will need to improve on a number of below-par efforts over the summer.
Lost all chance of a successful British last month when blowing the start in a Wolverhampton 6f handicap. Market likely to be the best guide here representing a yard who have been among the winners at this track in the last month.
Saves her best form for the AW where the daughter of Dandy Man has three victories to her name here including one over C&D. Yard have had a winner at a couple of recent meetings at this track.
Six-race maiden not disgraced when making steady progress in four starts for trainer Mick Appleby. Will have disappointed new connections with a couple of below-par efforts on turf last month. Yard among the winners here seven days ago.
Off the mark on turf on final start for Jessica Harrington before a gallant run behind Facethepuckout over C&D last month. Yard usually go well at this venue in October but sent out eight losers here in the last month.
Was unfancied and well beaten on Newmarket's September debut before a promising effort at Yarmouth in April on final start for trainer Roger Varian. Pleasing run at Fairyhouse on stable debut last month. Appears capable of making his mark.
Best effort since switched to handicaps came when finishing runner-up in first time blinkers in a 7f handicap at Limerick in July. Out of sorts in a couple of starts since and plenty to prove in this company.
Has a couple of pleasing efforts over C&D previously. Off the mark on turf in a weak 7½f maiden at Ffos Las in July before a couple of defeats off his revised mark at the Curragh and Listowel last month. One to note in this contest.
