Stable stalwart for the Ger Lyons yard before moving to current connections in August. Without a win at the track in seven starts. Accomplished pilot in the saddle, currently sat fifth in the apprentice championship.

Solid and consistent sort, winner of two of her five starts over C&D. Could be of interest in first-time cheekpieces and slipping 2lb below last winning mark.

Won a maiden on debut at Dundalk last year and showed improvement in first start for this yard when running on for third over 7f at Limerick in July. Beaten on a couple of occasions on turf since but requires plenty of respect back here.

Winner of two of his four starts here, last victory coming in a 1m handicap in February off a similar mark. Ran well in defeat here earlier in the month and should get competitive off this mark.

Three-time winner at this track and has hit the frame on a couple of occasions from six starts over C&D. Mixed bag on turf over the summer. Positive and dynamic rider on board currently sat at the top of the apprentice jockeys championship.

88-rated handicapper for trainer Stuart Williams last summer. In a little bit of a rut at the moment, well held in a couple of starts for new connections and hard to fancy racing 13lb lower than his last winning mark.

All three appearances here have come over C&D with the Sir Prancealot gelding winning one and hitting the frame on one other occasion. Not seen since November and entitled to need the run back.

Three from seven at this venue but yet to race over this trip. Running with great credit in defeat on turf over the summer but has a below-par run at Roscommon when last seen in August to shake off.

Good record here winning four of his 44 starts including a win and six places over C&D. Disappointed on return to action last month on stable debut and more needed in this company.

Eight-race maiden well held in starts for Jeremy Noseda and Stuart Williams previously. Finishing position on debut at this track is not as bad as suggested with the No Nay Never gelding running well for a while. Not to be taken lightly.

Failed to make it to the track for Godolphin. Well held on stable debut at the Curragh last month. First time blinkers fitted with rising star of the weighing room in the saddle.

Improved on a couple of dismal efforts when finishing in midfield in a 7f maiden claimer at this track earlier in the month. Market likely to be the best guide taking a big step up in trip.

Betting

Forecast

The Game Of Life (9/4), Yuften (11/4), Major Reward (10/3), Metal Man (6/1), Tony The Gent (8/1), Tennessee Wildcat (12/1), Ballydrislane (12/1), All Body And Soul (20/1), Winston Wolfe (25/1), Swift Justice (25/1), Lady De Vesci (28/1), Carried (33/1), Case In Point (33/1), Able Jack (40/1), No Trouble (66/1), Mister Dancer (66/1), Upwey (66/1)

Verdict

The Joseph O'Brien-trained THE GAME OF LIFE can add to his solid winning starts over 1m as the Oasis Dream gelding steps up in trip here. The four-year-old has a couple wins and a place to his name here and can see off any potential danger from the likes of Major Reward for the in form yard of Ger Lyons and Yuften who has been in good form over the summer. Tennessee Wildcat under current leading apprentice Andrew Slattery appears capable of a bold bid.
