Won for the second time in her career when landing a Navan 1m handicap on soft ground on his latest start on Wednesday. Life more difficult under a penalty but very much a leading player.

Useful 109-rated winning handicap hurdler ran well in defeat on AW debut at this venue last month finishing fourth of 14 beaten 1L behind Spruce Meadows. Leading and adept pilot in the plate, one to watch in first-time cheekpieces.

Won for the third time this season when taking a 7f contest on the beach at Laytown last month. Has a 6lb rise to overcome but likely to give a good account of himself once again.

Running well in recent starts including a close call on the Flat at the Curragh before winning a Bellewstown handicap hurdle in August. One of the years leading apprentices takes the ride.

Lost all chance when rearing in the stalls on return to this surface last month. Goes well here and his approaching a workable mark. Yard boast a 44% win and place strike rate at this venue in October with their handicappers since 2015.

Worth another chance following a below-par debut effort at this track last month. Accomplished pilot of 22 winners this term in the saddle and improvement likely in first-time cheekpieces.

Second of 14 beaten 1½L on sole appearance at this venue 12 months over 1m. Well held in a couple of starts when last seen in August but not totally ruled out in this company.

Off the mark at the fifth time of asking on AW debut at this venue earlier this month beating Fascinating Spirit ½L off a 5lb lower mark. Takes a big step up in trip here.

Betting

Forecast

Grandmaster Flash (5/2), Jumellea (11/4), Convara (10/3), Buzz Killington (5/1), Upgraded (12/1), Gougane Barra (16/1), Building Bridges (16/1), Effernock Fizz (20/1), Royal Admiral (25/1), Sweet Dime (33/1)

Verdict

The Ado McGuinness-trained ROYAL ADMIRAL got back to winning ways last month on the sand at Laytown over 7f. The five-year-old can take his good form into this contest at a track where he has never finished out of the frame in four starts and finished second of 12 over C&D in May. Jumellea is a clear and obvious danger for the Joseph O'Brien yard while Convara in first-time cheekpieces and Buzz Killington, a winner here last week can battle for the minor honours. Given the yards record with handicappers here in October in the last four years, Gougane Barra for trainer Mick Halford should not be forgotten.
