Course winner that has also won over this trip previously. Running well with great credit in a number of starts over the summer without getting his head in front. Liable to bump into one or two once again.

Winner over C&D in May landing a May handicap on yielding ground off a 22lb lower mark. Won here again in July before a below par effort at this track once again over 5f last month. Handicapper looks to be in control.

Sole win came in a 5f maiden back in 2016. Generally well held and never nearer in a couple of starts since returning to action in July. May find the company too hot.

Winner of two of her 11 starts on turf. Still racing 4lb higher than last winning mark. Could be a leading player if rediscovering the form displayed in a couple of starts in August.

Last seen in the winners enclosure following a win at Goodwood in the summer of 2017 when landing a Class 2 handicap off a 3lb higher mark when in the care of trainer Andrew Balding. Needs to step up on recent form to play a role here.

Running well in defeat over the summer including when finishing second of 13 beaten 1½L in a Navan 5f soft ground handicap on Wednesday off a similar mark. Claims if continuing recent run of form.

Sole win came in November last year. Well held and never threatening in three below-par starts this season and faces a tough ask in this company.

Has turned his form around in a number of starts recently. Won at the 18th time of asking when landing a 6½f handicap on yielding ground in August off a 12lb lower mark. Beaten since and could be prey to better handicapped sorts.

Invincible Spirit filly. Won over C&D when landing a 23-runner maiden in August on debut at odds of 25/1. Could well still have more to give.

Slow improvement came to a head when getting off the mark at the sixth attempt for connections in a Sligo handicap before winning again in a Cork sprint contest off a 7lb lower mark. Beaten since and may be up against it in first-time hood.

Early season form and promise has dissipated in a number of below-par efforts by August. More needed for the C&D winner but not one to put a line through.

Finally off the mark for connections at the 18th attempt when landing a Cork 5f contest before finishing third of 13 beaten 3¼L at Navan on Wednesday. Quickly turned out again and market likely to be the best guide as post time approaches.

Betting

Forecast

Miacomet (4/1), Medicine Jack (9/2), Ardhoomey (11/2), Fridtjof Nansen (6/1), The Broghie Man (7/1), Cyrus Dallin (8/1), Mary Salome (9/1), Scorching Heat (9/1), Verhoyen (10/1), Sendmylovetoyou (10/1), Arcanears (14/1), Erich Bloch (20/1), Kodiqueen (25/1), Mr Scarlet (50/1)

Verdict

Tricky handicap where a big price winner would not surprise. The Ger Lyons yard continue in good form right now and their C&D winner MEDICINE JACK hinted at a return to the winners enclosure when running Aleef to 1½L in a Navan 5f handicap on Wednesday. The five-year-old is quickly turned out again and can land the spoils here at the expense of the Mick Hlaford-trained Sendmylovetoyou, a winner on debut over C&D in August. Miacomet, behind Medicine Jack and Aleef at Navan on Wednesday could be a force to be reckoned with if popping the stalls.
