20:45 Dundalk Fri 29 November 2019
14-race maiden. Running with plenty of credit in a number of starts over C&D since September. No surprise to see a big run once again.
Improved on a number of dismal efforts on turf when finishing fourth of 14 beaten 2½L on polytrack debut over 7f earlier this month. Entitled to be in the firing line.
Won for the seventh time in his career when landing a handicap over C&D earlier in the month off a 6lb lower mark. Life more difficult from revised rating but still a major player.
Generally holding his form well in a number of starts since first career win at Bellewstown in August. Third of 14 beaten 1L over C&D puts the Canford Cliffs gelding in the mix here.
Six-race maiden formerly with trainer Ger Lyons, possibly posting a career best on final start for the yard at Bellewstown in August. Well held in a couple of starts here for current connections and looks up against it.
Solid and consistent record over C&D winning three of his 15 starts over the combination. Not disgraced in four starts for current connections but looks a tall order on recent form shown.
Dismal effort on debut at the venue over C&D when last seen in October. Inconceivable first time cheekpieces will produce the required amount of development needed to play a role here.
Distance winner, will look to improve on desperate debut on this surface when a 14L beaten favourite in mid-October before another poor effort here over 7f earlier this month.
Six-race maiden posted a career best effort when finishing second of 14 beaten ¾L on first start over C&D earlier in the month behind Loaded. Appears to have plenty going for him.
Sole win in 16 starts for the Born To Sea gelding came in a Roscommon maiden in August 2017. Not seen since June and probably best watched on stable and polytrack debut.
One-time Godolphin-owned gelding who has gone the wrong way since he was introduced at Wolverhampton in October 2017. Requires a chunk of improvement to play a role in this contest.
Put a host of dismal efforts behind him when showing a liking for this track to finish sixth of 13 beaten 4L behind Spelga earlier this month over 1m2½f. Needs a few to falter dropping in trip.
Regressive 55-rated handicapper earlier in the summer for trainer Eve Johnson-Houghton. Hints of ability over C&D earlier this month but still a long way to go before any faith is shown in him.
Course winner produced his best effort for sometime over C&D when last seen in early October running Cautious Approach to 3¼L. Likely to produce a solid run.
