7/1

Seen over hurdles in a number of starts since August the gelding has a record of a win and two place efforts from three starts over C&D. Strong place claims.

9/1

Winner of five of her 35 Flat starts on turf. The daughter of Stormy River has been running well in defeat in a couple of starts since last month at Galway and more recently at Naas. No surprise to see a big run here.

13/2

Repeated the form of his run over C&D in September when finishing second of 13 beaten ½L over the combination earlier in the month. Entitled to make any shortlist.

50/1

Lightly raced Peintre Celebre gelding not seen since finishing down the field in a Leopardstown 1m4f handicap over two years ago. Clearly best watched on return to action.

7/2

Eight-race maiden, not far away from getting off the mark. Solid efforts on his most recent starts at this venue this month and likely to make another bold bid to follow his effort over C&D recently. First-time cheekpieces to assist.

Age: 3|  Weight: 8-12  |  J: N M Crosse |  T: D Broad|  OR: 52
6/1

10-race maiden produced a career best effort on second start at this venue earlier this month over C&D finishing second of 13 beaten ½L behind Spelga. A must for any shortlist.

8/1

Without a win in 10 starts though posted a career best effort when out-running odds of 33/1 to finish third of 13 over C&D earlier this month. Needs to back that run up here.

Eight-race maiden well held in most of her starts over the summer and well beaten over 19L on sole visit here over 12 months ago.

5/1

Posted a career best effort here when finishing second of 14 beaten 2½L behind Pak Army over C&D before running with plenty of credit once again earlier this month over 1m4f. Major player dropping in trip.

14/1

Without a win or a place in three starts at this venue but ran well in defeat over 1m earlier this month when beaten just 1¾L behind Munfallet in a bunch finish. Plenty to do in first time blinkers.

Age: 4|  Weight: 8-8  |  J: S M Mooney |  T: A McGuinness|  OR: 45
8/1

Career best effort in six starts came over C&D earlier this month finishing fifth of 13 beaten 2¼L. More needed in this company.

Age: 5|  Weight: 8-8  |  J: A J Farragher |  T: Peter Fahey|  OR: 45
33/1

10-race maiden and well held in six starts at this venue including finishing seventh of 13 beaten over 8L when last seen in September. Likely to find life difficult dropping in trip.

Verdict

Wide open competitive contest where SHADOW SEVEN can put a couple of hurdling disappointments behind him to bag a third course win, a second over C&D. The Joseph O'Brien-trained five-year-old can hod off the attentions of many who come into the race with chances, including fellow C&D winner Spanish Dawn, the Tim Doyle-trained Caronda and the solid and consistent Magi Gal.
