20:15 Dundalk Fri 8 November 2019
Winner of three of his 13 appearances at this venue. Recently seen over hurdles in a summer jumping campaign. Place claims on return to this surface.
Winner on three occasions on the AW in Britain when in the care of Roger Varian and Jim Boyle. Not much to shout about in a number of below-par efforts for current connections and hard to recommend on current evidence.
Veteran of 28 starts here and winner of four of his 15 runs over C&D. Ran well in defeat on latest start over 1m2f last month and could be a major player now racing 9lb lower then last winning mark.
Has not returned to action in the best of spirits suffering a couple of heavy defeat at Gowran Park and more recently in a Leopardstown 1m4f handicap last month. Looks a tall order on form shown.
One win to his name from 10 starts at the track but has proceeded to hit the frame on a further five occasions. Could be of interest if the subject of market support.
Without a win in 11 starts at this venue but has proceeded to hit the frame on four occasions from eight runs over C&D. Beaten 1¾L over the combination earlier this month and could grab a place if in the same form.
Useful 109-rated winning handicap hurdler ran well in defeat on AW debut at this venue finishing fourth of 14 beaten 1L behind Spruce Meadows before disappointing a little over C&D last month.
Winner of a Leicester maiden two and half years ago landing a 1m4f maiden for trainer Mick Channon remains the daughter of Raven's Pass only success to date. Down the field on course debut last month and plenty to prove in this contest.
Won for the third time at the track when nosing out Cache Queen over 1m2½f last month off a 3lb lower mark. Another bold bid expected.
Boasts a 50% strike rate over C&D winning two of his four starts over the combination. Hurdling, with success, recently and capable of a bold show on return to this surface.
Shock winner at Leopardstown in July before returning another poor effort at the same track off a 4lb higher mark over 1m7f. Appears to be up against it here on AW debut.
Winner of one of her six Flat starts for trainer Willie Mullins and not seen since tailing off at Tramore in August 2018. Hard to make a case for on stable debut.
Barely beaten a horse home in 2019 but showed improved form at this track when finishing 4th of 13 before running Pak Army to ½L when second of 14 when last seen in September. Both starts were over C&D and should be in the hunt for more prize money.
108-rated handicap hurdler comes here from a successful summer jumping campaign. One from two at this venue previously and looks a lively outsider in first-time cheekpieces.
