Four-race maiden, sending out a number of mixed messages this term since making his debut in August. Disappointed on handicap debut debut last month and looks up against it here.

Eight-race maiden, still looking for breakthrough success in five Flat starts on turf. Running well in defeat of late, first-time blinkers fitted and holds claims if having a positive effect.

Six-race maiden well beaten and never nearer in a couple of handicap starts at the Galway festival, more recently at Listowel and Gowran Park last month, beaten over 9L. Plenty to prove at present.

Yet to hit the frame in five career starts. Struggling down the pack in a couple of starts since making her seasonal debut last month. Needs a sizable improvement to mix it here.

Off the mark for connections at the ninth time of asking on turf when landing a Cork 1m4f handicap earlier this month off a 7lb lower mark. Another bold bid looks likely.

Six-race maiden, yet to hit the frame on any start. Not seen for 12 months and entitled to need the run on return to action.

Winner of one of his 16 starts on turf and has been sending out mixed messages in five starts this term. Out of sorts on his most recent starts and impossible to make a case for against a number of these rivals.

Five-race maiden, well down the field in three dismal efforts this term including a 19½L defeat at Navan when last seen in July. Still looking no nearer to breakthrough success.

Has return ed a negative set of results in six career starts since making her debut in February. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Has generally been well held in a couple of recent starts over hurdles despite misleading finishing positions. Well held in five starts on turf and hard to place any faith in.

Poor form in a series of dismal efforts since May including heavy defeats at Cork and Gowran Park last month. Hard to construct much of a case for the daughter of Big Bad Bob here.

Eight-race maiden on turf. Early season progression appears to have leveled out of late but wouldn't have to improve on recent starts too much to be able to play a part in the finish.

Sole win came in a Cork handicap on heavy ground over an extended-mile 18 months ago. Best efforts since have come on the AW and unlikely to be troubling the judge here.

First Reserve: Ridden over 3f out on Flat turf debut in a Roscommon 1m2f maiden when last seen in June subsequently finishing 11th of 16 on soft ground. Looks opposable.

Betting

Forecast

Watchman (9/4), You'llfindandsee (4/1), Bajan Excell (7/1), Indian Eye (8/1), Mianna (9/1), Marmalade N Toast (10/1), Challow (14/1), Still Alive (16/1), Border Battle (16/1), Golden Cliffs (20/1), Vivalicious (20/1), Peace Approved (20/1), Crinkell (25/1), Pivotal Man (25/1), Pimstrel (25/1), Coolest King (33/1), Santorini Sun (33/1), Lethal Endeavour (33/1), Bye Bye Brussels (33/1)

Verdict

The Five-year-old WATCHMAN in first-time blinkers can get off the mark for connections at the ninth time of asking. The Oasis Dream gelding has been in consistent form since August and can build on a pleasing run at Navan on soft ground earlier this month. Recent Cork winner, You'llfindandsee is likely to be the biggest danger off a 7lb higher mark. Indian Eye wouldn't have to look much further back in her form to be able to grab a place in this contest.
