17:00 Dundalk Tue 3 December 2019
Good fourth in a 7f handicap at Cork (yielding-to-soft) in early October but struggled over 1m here subsequently. Cheekpieces tried for the first time dropping in distance.
Caught the eye in finishing 2¾L fifth in a handicap over this C&D in October. Races off a 2lb lower mark here and cheekpieces worn for the first time that day are replaced with blinkers. Strong claims with a tongue tie worn for the first time.
C&D winner has finished held in seven starts since joining this stable including over 5f here the last twice. Market support would be notable back up in trip off a mark 15lb lower than for his most recent victory.
Ended his time with previous stable with a 22L last of 12 in a 5f handicap at Naas (good) in July. Returning from a break that day and interesting to see how he fares on debut for a new yard.
15 race maiden has failed to trouble the judge in two starts since joining this yard including when 6¼L tenth over 5f here last time out. More needed with a hood tried for the first time.
Successful four times in a 23 race career including over C&D in February. Held in a 5f handicap here when returning from a break early last month and has a wide draw to overcome on debut for this trainer.
Winner of a 7f handicap at Lingfield in January but has finished well beaten in two starts since joining this stable subsequently. Probably best watched off a mark 4lb higher than for that Lingfield victory.
Ten race maiden hasn't been beaten far in three starts here since returning from a break including when 3¾L sixth in a 7f handicap last time out. Worth a check in the market back down in trip.
Three time winner over 7f here and has placed over that trip on his two most recent outings including when 1¼L third here last time out. Promising apprentice jockey takes the ride and is one to note dropping in trip.
Dual winner here including over C&D in April. Fair 5¼L seventh in a 14 runner 7f handicap here on his return from a break last month but has a wide draw to overcome if he's to take this contest.
Good 1L second in a 6f handicap at Fairyhouse (yielding-to-soft) in September but has finished held on two subsequent starts. Market support would be notable off a mark 6lb lower than when winning over C&D last December.
Nine race maiden finished a fair eighth in a C&D handicap on her return from a break last month. Likely to have improved for the run but others appear to hold more obvious claims in this event.
16 race maiden finished a well held tenth in a 6f handicap at Fairyhouse (good-to-firm) in July when last in action. First runner for new trainer and is probably best watched returning from a break.
C&D winner was never involved when finishing 9¼L 12th in a 5f handicap at Bellewstown (good) in August. Unraced since and interesting to see how he fares on his return to action.
