18:15 Dundalk Fri 8 November 2019
Five wins at this venue including a victory over C&D from eight starts over the combination. Not beaten far here last month and is back below last winning mark but has a negative draw to overcome.
Winner over C&D from 11 starts over the combination, hitting the frame on a further seven occasions. Ran Fashaar to 1L over C&D late last month and more likely than some to run his race.
Sole win from 11 starts at the track came over C&D. Held in a number of starts when running over 6f since August but holds claims back up in trip and sits on his last winning mark.
Made some late progress to finish fourth of 14 over 7f on first start for this trainer last month before a respectable third of 13 beaten 5L over 1m here last week. Handicapper drops him 3lb.
AW specialist who won twice at Southwell earlier this year when in the care of trainer Brian Ellison. Claimed out of the yard following a run on the beach at Laytown in September. Market likely to be the best guide.
16-race maiden on the Flat and has been beaten in three starts, including finishing last but one in a 13-runner 6f handicap, for current connections since leaving the yards of Harry Dunlop and more recently Daniele Camuffo.
Well held in three starts on turf since September. Likely to be suited on return to this surface given the mare is two from five over C&D. Draw and racing 11lb lower than last winning mark is a concern.
Distance winner, will look to improve on desperate debut on this surface when a 14L beaten favourite in mid-October. Veterinary Officer examined the gelding, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.
Seven-race maiden for trainer-Tracey Collins. Eighth of 13 beaten 6¼L on AW debut here looking one pace over 1f out. Dropped in trip for stable debut.
Winner of three of his 16 starts over C&D with the last win coming over three years ago off a 24lb higher mark. Best effort for sometime when second of 14 beaten 1¼L behind La Derniere Fois. Negative draw a concern.
Two wins from 12 starts over C&D. Well held on return to action over the combination late last month. Capable of a big run if in the mood racing 2lb lower than last winning mark.
Sending out a number of mixed messages in his starts over the summer. Winner of one of his four starts over C&D. Possibilities on return to this surface but needs to put a couple of below-par efforts last month behind him.
Six-race maiden. Ridden and no impression over 1f out on AW debut over 1m last week when sent off at odds of 50/1. Hard to fancy and plenty to prove.
Missed 632 days after leaving Richard Hughes and has been tailed off in a couple of poor efforts since returning to action in March and more recently in a Cork 1m handicap last month. Unlikely to make a significant impact here.
