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 of a three-runner Fairyhouse contest in May before Finishing last of seven, 12 and 17 in three subsequent starts since June. Has plenty to prove on current form.
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.
Winner of two of his four starts at this track including a win over C&D. Can get competitive now coming back down to around his last winning mark.
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.
All three career wins at this venue have come have come from seven starts over C&D with the gelding hitting the frame on a further three occasions. Yard hold a 44% win and place strike rate with their handicappers in October since 2015.
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.
Front runner who goes well here winning four of his 54 starts here but has just the one victory to his name over C&D. Possible place claims on his 100th career start.
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.
Has won on a couple of occasions at this track previously but is without a success over C&D in four starts over the combination. Place claims and one to note here.
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.
