Cosistent gelding running well in defeat in a number of starts over a variety of trip over the summer. Could be of interest now racing 1lb lower than last winning mark.
Off the mark at the 17th attempt for connections when winning a claimer over an extended 1m1f at Ballinrobe. Beaten in handicap company since when last seen in July. Needs a few to falter.
Glimmers of improvement on second handicap start in a Gowran Park 1m contest in September before getting off the mark for connections at the sixth time of asking when landing a 5K handicap over C&D off a 6lb lower mark last month. More to come.
13-race maiden ran a career best when finishing second of 13 beaten 1¼L behind Rockview Roman over C&D last month. One for the shortlist meeting her conqueror on better terms.
Nine-race maiden showing little signs of ability including an 8½L defeat over C&D last month. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Mainly running well in defeat in a number of starts over the summer. Well held in a couple of runs here last winter but not to be taken lightly on his best form here.
C&D winner with plenty miles on the clock and no success since 2017. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.
Has produced a number of laboured runs since May, never a factor on each occasion. Much improved show needed to play a role here.
Winner of two of his 32 career starts. Last seen at this venue finishing a well beaten 11th of 14 over 1m and 13th of 14 in a 7f contest three years ago. Interesting if subject of a market move.
Has made a poor start to his career well beaten in a couple of bumper starts since July before finishing down the field in three dismal efforts on the Flat. Unlikely to be making a significant impact in this contest.
Well held in a couple of previous efforts here running over 7f and 1m. Generally well held in a couple of starts since return to action in September and others preferred.
Ran well in defeat on second start at the track finishing third of 13 beaten 3L behind Rockview Roman and Bellepower over C&D last month. Another bold bid expected.
Mixed bag of results this term with an improved effort posted on his latest start over C&D earlier this month. First-time visor required to have a positive effect.
