11-race maiden. Well held and never threatening the winner in four starts this season since the end of March. Hasn't looked a winner in waiting.

Highly popular veteran who was top-class in his prime, but is on the decline nowadays. 26lb lower than last winning mark and difficult to see where improvement is coming from at his age.

Casamento colt who cost €10,000 as a yearling. Nothing of note in a number of starts over 5f/6f since May and requires a chunk of improvement to play a role on just his second run in 12 months, first since March.

Boasts a win and a place from 11 starts over C&D. Not beaten far on a similar surface previously and could be a lively outsider now back to somewhere near his last winning mark.

Off the mark for current connections when landing a Listowel 7f soft ground handicap last month off a 5lb lower mark. Beaten since in a fruitless raid on Ayr. First-time visor looks interesting.

Has hit the frame on both starts over C&D previously. Goes well on the ground and has finished in the runner-up position on each of his last two starts. Open to progress and he must enter calculations here.

By Garswood and cost €80,000 as a foal. Five-race maiden will have disappointed connection in a number of recent below-par efforts since July. Easily opposable once again.

Saves all his winning for the AW, victorious at Lingfield, Chelmsford and in Ireland at Dundalk when in the care of trainer Ger Lyons. Yet to hit the frame in four starts for current connections and appears worth taking on again.

Unlucky not to get her head in front more than once this season and this is her optimum trip. Pulled out of an engagement here in August due to the unsuitable soft ground. Hard to make a case for.

Off the mark for connections at the fourth time of asking when landing a 5f contest here in August. Beaten on a couple of occasions since but capable of bouncing back to form stepping up in trip in first-time blinkers and yard in good form.

Winner of two of her last five starts since landing a Sligo 6f handicap on good ground off a 14lb lower mark in June. Recent efforts suggest more improvement could be on the cards with this trip likely to bring out the best in the filly.

Popular veteran, winner of three of his 64 starts on turf. Has hit the frame on a couple of occasions from six starts over C&D but he's not the most reliable of sorts these days and others hold stronger claims.

Forecast

Pulse Of Shanghai (5/2), Vocatus (7/1), Tresorier (8/1), Silver Service (9/1), Little Clarinet (10/1), Sors (10/1), Rattling Jewel (12/1), Noirvento (14/1), Compton's Finale (14/1), Enter The Red (16/1), Sestriere (16/1), Comhghairdeas (16/1), Youceeyouceecee (16/1), Maarek (20/1), Hiella (20/1), Clifftop Dancer (20/1), Olay Power (25/1), She's My Dream (25/1), Jo Binney (25/1), Chestnut Express (25/1), Lily's Prince (25/1), Sahreej (33/1), Der Mc (33/1), It's All A Joke (33/1), A Likely Story (33/1), Castrogiovanni (33/1), Pride Of Pimlico (33/1), Zathura (40/1), Woods (40/1), Hatton Cross (50/1), French (50/1), Sakura (50/1), Boing (66/1)

Verdict

In a race where it is difficult to find a pace angle from any of the 30 runners it may pay to side with the higher part of the draw. The Andrew Slattery-trained Sors can be expected to be not to far off the lead possibly followed through by Vocatus for trainer Jim Bolger and the Sheila Lavery-trained, Sakura. The early speed on this side could set the race nicely up for recent Down Royal winner PULSE OF SHANGHAI who went well here previously over C&D on yielding ground in August when in the hands of James Ryan. The Dragon Pulse gelding can improve again for the move to a new yard. Little Clarinet, Hiella and Rattling Jewel should not be underestimated.
