Ex-Brian Meehan inmate, doing well without winning since joining this trainer running over 1m. Has been shaping like step up in trip would suit and can finally get off the mark at the 12th time of asking.
10-race maiden showing hints of form on good ground over the summer before a couple of dismal efforts as the ground changed last month. Could be a little too early to be writing off just yet.
Expected to be better than what the daughter of Dawn Approach has shown in three career starts so far. No surprise to see her bounce into form on handicap debut on this surface.
Modest 60-rated handicapper in the UK for trainer Michael Attwater. Overall career record casts doubt on his ability to get competitive on stable and track debut.
Off the mark for connections at the 12th time of asking when landing a 14-runner handicap over C&D off a 9lb lower mark. Beaten over hurdles since but rates a leading contender back on this surface.
Solid and consistent form in a number of starts since May running well without getting his head in front. Enters calculations but form at this venue leaves a little to be desired.
Winner over C&D in March when the Arcano gelding was seen getting off the mark at the fifth time of asking off a 3lb lower mark. Well beaten and never nearer in a couple of starts on turf since but a different proposition back at this track.
13-race maiden has managed to hit the frame on just the one occasion from seven starts at this venue. Ran well in defeat on her latest start at the end of last month but the filly isn't the most reliable of sorts.
Six-race maiden. Tailed off on a couple of visits to this venue in the early part of the year. Overall profile suggests the filly is worth taking on again.
Below-par form in three sporadic runs since the gelding made his debut in February 2018. Never a factor on first start for over a year at Ballinrobe when last seen in July. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required improvement needed.
Without success in starts over hurdles, on the Flat and on the AW. The Camacho gelding remains a maiden of 46 starts. Still looking no nearer to breakthrough success.
12-race maiden. Hints of improvement in four starts for current connections since making his stable debut in September. Well held in three starts when last seen on this surface 12 months ago.
10-race maiden yet to hit the frame in six starts at this track. Not seen since finishing down the field in a Bellewstown 1m handicap in August and remains easy to oppose.
Yet to finish in the frame in five career starts including three heavy defeats on this surface. Hasn't looked a winner in waiting.
