Won a Listed contest at Navan last year but has been generally struggling in better races than this since. Fourth of eight on AW debut last month but could be of interest taking a significant step up in trip.

Winner over C&D on his only start over the combination on of two victories at the track. Disappointed over 1m here earlier this month when finishing last of 13 and may need others to run below par to have a chance in this this.

Course winner that has won over this trip. Pleasing third of 14 beaten 1¾L over C&D earlier this month off a similar mark. Profile suggests the she can give a good account of herself here.

Gelding who has won over this trip as well as having a record of one win from five starts at the track. Running with plenty of enthusiasm in a number of starts on turf this term and one for the shortlist returning to this track.

Won for the third time in his career when landing a Sligo 5½f good ground handicap off a 1lb lower mark in August. Well held in four disappointing efforts since and possibly best watched on AW debut.

Put a number of disappointing efforts behind her when winning over C&D on AW debut earlier this month off a 5lb lower mark. Another bold show looks likely.

Returned to form, following a number of below-par efforts on turf over the summer, finishing a close up sixth of 14 over 5f at this track last month. Worth a market check with a significant step up in trip.

Sole win at this venue came over C&D in September last year off a 8lb lower mark. Last of 14 over the combination earlier this month and unlikely to be playing a role in the finish in this contest.

Early season promise appears to have leveled out to a certain degree following a couple of below-par efforts at Listowel in the space of two days last month. Hard to fancy.

Betting

Forecast

Festina Plente (5/1), Never Back Down (6/1), Katiymann (6/1), All The King's Men (8/1), Sirjack Thomas (8/1), Equitant (8/1), She's A Babe (8/1), Ahlan Bil Zain (12/1), Emphatic (14/1), Kasbah (18/1), Geological (22/1), Klute (25/1), St Brelades Bay (25/1), Time Stands Still (50/1)

Verdict

The Mick Halford-trained AHLAN BIL ZAIN can bounce back to form here following a couple of set backs in his last couple of starts. A solid record over C&D the five-year-old has three victories as well as three places from seven starts over the combination and can thrive back at this venue. Stablemate, the mount of Colin Keane, Katiymann can emerge as the biggest danger while All The King's Men for trainer Aidan O'Brien and C&D winner She's A Babe can pose the biggest threat to the main fancies.
  1. Ahlan Bil Zain
  2. Katiymann
  3. All The King's Men
