Looked to be heading in the right direction on return to this surface last month finishing 4½L adrift of Spruce Meadows over 1m4f here last month. Dual C&D winner now racing 9lb lower than last winning mark.

Has appeared to struggle in a number of starts since winning at Navan over 1m2f 12 months ago. Market likely to reveal expectations for connections on AW debut.

Winner of three of his 23 starts on the Flat, the latest of which came in a Chepstow 2m contest in July. Well held in a number of dismal efforts over hurdles recently and first time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about a revival.

Running with credit over the summer in a number of maiden contests before a dismal effort at the Curragh last month. Better than that run suggests and entitled to make the shortlist on AW debut.

Winner of a Cork handicap in May and made his debut over hurdles at Roscommon when last seen in August, finishing fifth of 16 beaten 27L. Best watched on AW debut unless the market suggests otherwise.

Has hit the frame on one occasion from four starts here previously but limited appearances on the racecourse in the last couple of years make the Oasis Dream gelding hard to fancy.

Won for the third time in her career when landing a 1m handicap at this venue off a 5lb lower mark earlier this month. Another bold bid likely.

Victorious in one of his 16 starts over C&D. Recent efforts have been below-par and has not shown enough since March to be of interest in this contest.

Lope De Vega gelding has found things a bit of a struggle since winning a Down Royal handicap in July. Beaten over 35L in a 1m4f contest at this track earlier this month and likely to find it tough going here.

Winner of two of his seven starts over C&D and has been showing decent form on turf over the summer without getting his head in front. Place claims.

Boasts a win and a place to her name from three starts over C&D. Winner over the combination last month off a 8lb lower mark and very much respected in this contest.

Eight-race maiden finished sixth of 14 beaten 5¼L on course debut earlier this month. Needs to improve on even his best form stepping up in trip here.

First Reserve: Nine-race maiden only recently joined new connections. First time eye-shield unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Betting

Forecast

Cautious Approach (7/2), Cache Queen (9/2), Park Row (5/1), Eria (6/1), Pepperoni Pete (8/1), Wild Shot (8/1), Rips Dream (8/1), Next Stop Broadway (11/1), Red Avenger (11/1), Divine Approach (14/1), Anthonysoprano (14/1), Small Bit Of Love (16/1), Carried (25/1), Bruinneall (25/1), Shamash (33/1), Circling Moon (33/1), Swift Justice (50/1)

Verdict

The Dawn Approach filly CAUTIOUS APPROACH is in good heart with himself at the moment and can continue her winning thread here. The four-year-old won over 1m here at the start of the month and steps up in trip with the 5lb rise possibly looking a little lenient. C&D winners, Cache Queen and Park Row can emerge as the biggest dangers while the Noel Kelly-trained Wild Shot is worthy of further consideration.
