15:40 Gowran Park Mon 14 October 2019
A C&D winner here two starts back where he broke his maiden. He was unable to follow it up at this course over the longer trip of 1m1½f as well as over this trip last time out; not totally ruled out but others preferred.
Sprang a surprise when winning at Ayr at the start of the month (7f, soft); had previously been a little below par including over this course and distance in July; has ability and one for the shortlist.
Flat maiden on turf. Needs to improve on a couple of dismal efforts the last twice and does not immediately stand out as a winner-in-waiting.
Well held on all her recent starts on the Flat and over hurdles; hard to recommend this eight-race maiden and difficult to see where any improvement would come from.
Has continued in good form, running with credit in defeat from a revised mark since winning a 6½f contest at Listowel last month. Will look to progress here.
Last win came two years ago. Probably needed the run last time out in August following long break but hard to see him getting too competitive here.
Losing run now totals ten with the gelding running down the field at Roscommon recently beaten 13 lengths.. Looks vulnerable in this contest.
Dismal form over hurdles has been mirrored in the alarming fall of performances on the Flat to the point where the gelding now races 27lb lower than his last winning mark.
One of the more consistent runners in the field and goes well at this track; still a maiden but is certainly capable of winning a race and this could be a decent opportunity; chances.
Bit more encouraging last time when staying-on fourth over this course and distance in July; longish absence a slight worry but looks one of the more capable performers in the field.
1-17 career record, springing a 25-1 shock at Roscommon with slender success last year; has been showing slightly improved form of late and hard to rule out altogether.
Mixed messages in a number of starts since returning to action in April doesn't bode well for the chances of the filly racing from out of the handicap.
11-race maiden with a clear best third over 7f here in very testing conditions in October. Now much lower in the weights and ran a fair race last time out over course and distance; reasonable place chance.
Posted his best effort for sometime when only beaten 1½L in a Cork 1m½f handicap earlier this month; one of the more promising candidates in a tough race to call.
Well beaten in all six starts and while her trainer is always feared, the balance of evidence is that she should be avoided again.
Reserve 1: Sole win came at this track and after some patchy form and a stable change she produced a decent effort last time out at Musselburgh; interesting if taking part.
