All three career wins have come on an AW surface including a win at this track from one of his eight starts here. Not beaten far over C&D last month and no surprise to see an improved performance in this contest.
Never made it to the racecourse for trainer William Haggas. Well held in a couple of previous starts here over 5f. Not to be taken lightly in this contest.
Winner of two of her nine visits over C&D including a couple of place finishes previously. Mixed messages over the summer on turf but the daughter of Intense Focus deserves a market check on return to this venue.
Four C&D wins to his name from 17 starts over the combination. Last win came in February off a 1lb higher mark. Capable of bouncing back if in the mood.
Miserly return of one win from 22 career starts, the Holy Roman Emperor gelding has finished in the frame from four starts over C&D. Hints of a return to form at Fairyhouse last month.
15-race maiden on the Flat and has been beaten in two starts for current connections since leaving the yards of Harry Dunlop and more recently Daniele Camuffo. Looks up against it.
Filly who deserves a change in fortune following a couple of near misses at Leopardstown and Limerick in the summer. Not seen since July and entitled to need the run on return.
11-race maiden. Running well in defeat in the main over the summer without getting her head in front. In good hands and worth a check returning for a second start here since finishing eighth of 14 in November last year.
Has a win and two places on his record from six starts over C&D. Won a 14-runner contest over the combination in March off a 1lb higher mark and has to be of interest in this company.
The encouraging and promising runs over the summer appeared to have leveled out somewhat in a couple of starts at Bellewstown and Gowran Park as autumn approached. Has hit the frame here in the past but may need a few to falter here.
Running with plenty of credit in a couple of starts at Navan over 5f recently. Well held in two starts here including finishing last of eight 7f in April. Others look more convincing.
Originally with Willie McCreery as a juvenile before a move across the Irish sea with two more yards most notably with Declan Carroll. Hints of improvement at Fairyhouse on second start for current connections but more needed here.
Second Reserve: Popular veteran who is running 12lb higher than his win at Bellewstown in August. Winner of two of his 15 starts here over C&D but up against it on this mark.
