Six-race maiden and yet to hit the frame on any occasion. Mixed bag this year and liable to find a couple stronger in this contest.

Scrambled home at Down Royal in August before two contrasting performances at The Curragh; his latest run showed he is still capable of winning off his current mark and should run his race.

Improved on his first three runs (all very disappointing) when sent on the AW at Dundalk with first-time blinkers applied; he was a little unlucky in running that day and has scope for more improvement; interesting.

With out a win in seven starts for the Camacho gelding. Will need to improve on overall form to play a significant part in this contest.

Slowly getting the hang of things and put up by far her best performance last time out at The Curragh in September; needs to improve again to get involved but certainly one to keep an eye on in the betting.

Has shown some progress on her three starts to date but looks unlikely to be good enough on handicap debut.

Experienced juvenile, winner of one of seven career starts so far. Repeat of recent efforts since August should see the daughter of Dandy Man in the hunt for prize money but might be vulnerable to any improvers.

Recent change of stable seemed to perk up this gelding putting in an improved effort last time out at The Curragh (6f, heavy); a repeat of that performance should see him going very close to landing this.

Has probably not shown enough on her three starts to date to suggest she is ready to win a handicap off her current mark which does not seem very lenient.

Sent off at big prices in all four career starts, never troubling the winner on any occasion. Looks up against it once again.

Arguably best effort came on her debut over course and distance in June; has not really progressed from then and unlikely to be troubling the judges.

Well down the field when well held on four dismal career starts so far; takes a huge leap of faith to see him being good enough here even with tongue tied for the first time.

Off the mark for connections at the fifth time of asking when landing a 6f handicap on heavy ground at the Curragh last month; ran well in defeat last time out at Navan and given the paucity of talent in this race, he could win again,

Nothing in four career starts running between 6f/7f including being well beaten when last seen out at The Curragh in August; others look open to more improvement.

Offered very little in three starts and seventh of eight at Galway in July leaves him with a stiff task.

Reserve 1: Looked to be coming to hand on his latest start in a Down Royal handicap over 7f last month, beaten 1L finishing third of 13 when sent off 9/4f but then floundered next time out at Fairyhouse.

Betting

Forecast

The King Of Kells (7/2), Simply True (9/2), Kenshibu (8/1), Be Like The Bird (8/1), Meeting (8/1), Sweet Justice (10/1), Bigz Belief (11/1), Cobb And Co (11/1), Eclector (12/1), Dark Design (12/1), London Holidays (12/1), Waterville Lady (14/1), Sasta (16/1), Dragon Of Malta (16/1), Saphiri (25/1), Pink Jazz (25/1), Princess Mayson (25/1), Miss Adventurous (25/1), Dashing Diamond (33/1)

Verdict

The in-form gelding THE KING OF KELLS can continue his recent run of good form and land this given his proven ability on a testing surface and given the level of competition looks poor. Be Like The Bird is generally a consistent sort who will likely run her race and perhaps give the selection most to do while Dragon Of Malta is closely matched with the selection on their running at The Curragh and deserves to be in the shake up. Simply True is another who is worthy of respect and may appreciate this step back in trip.
  1. Dragon Of Malta
  2. The King Of Kells
