17:10 Naas Sun 20 October 2019
Nine-time winner having first outing since hurdles event last autumn so probably best watched here unless market says otherwise.
Hat-trick seeker after following up his 7f Fairyhouse win under a penalty three days later over 1m1½f at Gowran. Now 12lb higher with his revised mark but clearly on the up.
Consistent on the whole but without success since winning a 1m4f Leopardstown handicap in the spring. Handicapper probably still has the upper hand and recent efforts suggest 1m4f suits better.
Winner of a valuable race at Naas first time out; he again showed he goes well fresh at the Curragh last time out when second over 1m. Very strong claims upped to 1m2f which he won over earlier in his career.
Won a couple this season but suspicion is that he is now at the handicapper's mercy after two rather ordinary efforts the last twice.
1m4½f and 1m4f winner this season seemingly remains within range handicap wise based on another fine effort last time out. Back in trip today but on this ground stamina definitely an asset; respected.
Gowran Park maiden winner has struggled in handicaps since and on the face of it he looks at the handicapper's mercy.
1m2½f and 1m4f handicap winner this season last seen finishing midfield at Dundalk. Not sure he's got much in hand of the handicapper but place claims obvious.
Running well in September before uncharacteristic flop at Navan last time. Capable of bouncing back here.
Struggling to add to her sole win in 13 starts since winning at Navan over 1m2f 12 months ago. Likely to need a little more relief from the handicapper before placing any trust in the filly.
1m1½f Ballinrobe winner finished third there when last seen back in July on handicap debut. Interesting runner here should be noted in the market.
