14:55 Fairyhouse Tue 12 November 2019
In fine form of late winning over hurdles and more recently over the larger obstacles at Sligo and Punchestown landing a second chase win last month off a 6lb lower mark on yielding ground. Life more difficult but another bold bid expected.
Not seen for 12 months when not jumping with any fluency before finishing down the field at Roscommon in September. Hard to make a case for but it may be a little early to be writing the Gold Well gelding off given respected connections.
Decisive winner when getting off the mark over the larger obstacles at the fourth time of asking at this venue in January. Beaten since including when last seen in March but first-time cheekpieces may spark winning ways again.
Backed to get off the mark over fences on both of his last couple of starts only for the Flemensfirth gelding to 'bump' into a couple. Running well in defeat and sure to go well again.
Caught the eye finishing second of nine beaten ¾L when backed in an Ayr 3m chase on handicap debut late last month. Gives the impression there is more to came.
Miserly return of just the one win over fences from 17 starts. Last seen since a heavy defeat at Clonmel in February and may need the run back on return to action.
Popular veteran who was still running well in defeat in a number of starts since the turn of the year until pulling up at Fairyhouse when last seen in April. Hard to fancy.
Lightly raced gelding over the last 18 months. Without a win in seven starts over fences and still looks no nearer to breakthrough success in this company on first start since April.
Mixed bag of returns from the daughter of Milan this term. Best effort for sometime when finishing second of 15 beaten 1¾L at Galway over 2m6½f on soft ground late last month. Not the most consistent of sorts.
Still a maiden after 22 starts over fences under Rules despite veteran status. Not seen on track since a run at Tramore in May. Looks up against it.
