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.
Winner over C&D on her only start over the combination. Generally well held in 10 seasonal starts. Can give a good account without posing serious threat to principals.
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.
Beaten in five starts for trainer Jessica Harrington before getting off the mark at the sixth time of asking on turf at Down Royal at the end of August. Last three starts have produced winners and may be capable of better still.
Has continued to run with credit and hold her form since winning a Naas 19-runner 6f handicap in August. More than likely to run her race once again.
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.
Boasts a win and a couple of places from nine starts over C&D. Recent efforts have not been acceptable and not in the required form to play a part.
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 a Navan 5f maiden on good to firm ground in July but has shown little or no aptitude in a number of dismal efforts over a variety of trip since. Looks vulnerable in this company.
Solid and consistent sort over the summer, beaten no more than 5L in five starts over 5f. not beaten for on soft ground at this venue in August and is approached with a great deal of respect in this contest.
Six-race maiden well held in a couple of starts on turf for trainer Richard Hannon. Last of 14 on the AW at Dundalk on stable debut last month. Improvement needed if he is to take a part in this event.
Well held and never nearer in a couple of starts since returning to action in August following a 228 day break since leaving trainer John Feane. First time cheekpieces doubtful to bring about the required amount of progress needed to play a role.
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.
Long losing streak dates back to 2017 and has joined this yard from Anthony Brittain. Well down the field on stable debut at this track when last seen in August and needs a chunk of improvement to play a role in this company.
Running well in defeat in the main over the summer without getting her head in front. 10-race maiden still looking for her breakthrough success in nine Flat starts on turf.
10-race maiden. Finding the company too hot in her last six starts since August. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.
12-race maiden. Makes little appeal based on what the Sir Prancealot gelding has shown for connections so far and needs to improve significantly.
Has a win and a place from seven starts over C&D. Losing run dates back to 2017 and a 28lb higher mark. Not in the form required in six seasonal starts since June to play a part in this contest and looks opposable once again.
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.
Form has leveled off somewhat since landing a Sligo 6f handicap on good ground in May off a 1lb higher mark. Struggling in recent efforts and tough to see where improvement is coming from.
First Reserve: Not won for almost four years but has not been discredited in a couple of recent starts here and more recently on his latest start at Tipperary. Has a bit to prove at present.
Second Reserve: Ran best race for sometime when finishing third of 17 in a Fairyhouse 6f handicap last month before a below par effort at Navan on Wednesday. Very difficult to win with.
