Winner over C&D of this contest 12 months ago off a similar mark. May well have been gearing up for another assault on this race in his most recent starts at Roscommon and Galway last month.
Off the mark for connections at the 12th time of asking on her seventh Flat start on turf when landing a Galway 1m4f soft ground handicap last month off a 13lb lower mark. Life more difficult under this penalty.
Never a factor on the beach at Laytown last month but not easily dismissed based on a number of pleasing efforts since joining current connections earlier in the summer. Rates a leading contender.
Will have delighted connection when getting off the mark at the seventh attempt on turf when landing a Gowran Park 1m soft ground handicap last month off a 16lb lower mark. Well held off new mark at Navan on Wednesday.
Swiss Spirit gelding. Half-brother to three winners, including 1m3½f winner Roman Riches and 1m4f winner Dyna Might. Three-race maiden and possibly beat watched on handicap debut.
Miserly return of one win from 10 career starts with the daughter of Mayson sole win coming on her second start in April last year. Down the field when last seen in May and a watching brief on stable debut.
Appears to be struggling a little in a couple of starts off his revised mark since landing a Gowran Park 1m handicap in June. Plenty more needed in this group.
In good form right now, running well in defeat at this venue before a 1½L defeat at Cork earlier this month. Good form on heavy ground and one for any shortlist now 3lb lower than last winning mark.
Four-race maiden not discredited in a couple of runs at Roscommon and at Cork last month but appears to have a bit to prove in a race of this nature.
Failed to build on an encouraging run at Naas in April when well down the field in three starts since. Hard to recommend on recent evidence.
12 races this season has not dented the geldings enthusiasm for the game as he continues to run well in defeat. Once again liable to find a couple stronger.
Winner of five of his 29 career starts. Without a win in five runs this term. C&d winner could be of interest if returning to form now racing 7lb lower than last winning mark.
Lightly raced in the last two years. Well held on stable debut when last seen in May but worth a market check now 5lb lower than last winning mark.
Seven race maiden, but is no lost cause running well in defeat in a number of starts last month. More improvement needed in this company.
Four-race maiden well held on all starts including when tailing off to finish last of 24 at the Curragh over 1m last month.
Second Reserve: C&D winner who has run well in defeat in a number of starts in big-field handicaps over the summer before disappointing efforts at Galway and Cork recently. Vast improvement needed to figure.
