Won for the sixth time in his career when landing a 7f good ground Cork Listed contest in the middle of August. Form of the race since has been a little disappointing but can give a good account without posing serious threat to principals.
Not disgraced in a number of starts since landing a fourth career win at Naas in April, running well in defeat in Group 2 and Listed company. C&D winner entitled to make the shortlist.
Winner over C&D three years ago winning a 11k handicap on yielding to soft ground. Holding his form well in a number of starts this term without getting his head in front including a big run in the Group 3 Renaissance stakes over C&D last month.
Fast improving Invincible Spirit gelding. Winner of four of his last five starts this term including a C&D success in a soft ground handicap in the middle of August. Every right to step up to this level.
Front runner who comfortably won a Limerick maiden before headed in the closing stages at Killarney in July. Well held in Listed company at Cork in the middle of August finishing 6L adrift of Flight Risk. Unlikely to turn the tables.
British raider, ran a career best effort when finishing ¾L behind Judicial in the Listed Beverley Bullet Sprint Stakes over 5f at the end of August. Well held since at Ayr but could be of interest making it here in first-time cheekpieces.
Daughter Dandy Man out of a Captain Rio mare. Winner on just her second career start when landing a Fairyhouse 6f maiden when last seen in June. Tough ask in this grade and others preferred.
Running well in defeat despite a mixed message series of starts since winning a Naas 6f maiden in April. Needs to improve significantly.
