Got his head back in front at Cork earlier in the campaign but struggling from his revised mark since. Out of the frame on only start at this track previously and more needed with a couple of better handicapped sorts lurking.
First time blinkers and switch to front running worked wonders when he trounced his rivals on heavy ground at Limerick before a dismal 24L defeat off an 11lb higher mark at Leopardstown last month. Rider reported that his mount stopped quickly.
Winner on her first start over C&D 12 months ago before a disappointing second run over the combination earlier this month when beaten over 9L. More needed.
Last run in March can be dismissed as the now gelded son of Teofilo attempts to win a fourth race over C&D on his fifth starts over the combination. Progressive type and shortlisted here.
Back to winning ways when landing a handicap over C&D last month off a 5lb lower mark beating Mutadaawel a head. Life more difficult off revised mark but a leading player once again.
Winner of two of his eight starts at this track including a win over C&D. Can get competitive now coming back down to around his last winning mark.
Won for the second time in his career when landing a 14-runner handicap over C&D late last month off a 6lb lower mark. Leading player once again representing yard with a 30% strike rate here since racing returned in September.
Ran well on polytrack debut last month when finishing fourth of 14 beaten 3L behind Geological over 7f. Place claims with handicapper giving him a chance.
Without a win in eight starts at the track but the daughter of Intense Focus has hit the frame in three of her four starts over C&D. Lively outsider.
Solid and consistent on turf in a number of spins over the summer. C&D winner returns to this venue and merits plenty of respect.
Winner of one of his 11 career starts and not disgraced in a couple of starts at this venue recently over 1m4f. More needed taking drop in trip.
Tough winner of three of his eight starts at this venue. Last seen here in September finishing second of 14 beaten a short-head over 6f. Place claims stepping up in trip.
One from three at the track the daughter of Shamardal has been running with great credit in a number of starts over the summer. May have needed the run back at this venue on Wednesday.
