17:30 Dundalk Tue 3 December 2019
Showed good form when 3L third over C&D on debut in October last year but has struggled in two subsequent starts including on turf debut last time out at Bellewstown (1m, good) in July. Worth a check in the market on handicap debut.
Successful once from 31 starts but has been running well in defeat in the main this autumn most recently when 5¼L fourth in a 13 runner handicap over C&D last month. One to note racing off the same mark in this event.
Placed on both starts since winning over C&D in September including when 1¼l third here last time out. Raised 2lb for that latest effort and looks likely to play a leading role once more.
C&D winner was returning from a break following a gelding operation when beaten 4½L into eighth in a C&D handicap at the end of October. Worth a check in the market off a mark 3lb higher than for his latest success.
Put a disappointing hurdles effort behing him when finishing 6L fifth in a C&D handicap last time out. Interesting to see how he fares in this contest.
Improving with racing since returning from a short break and finished a decent fifth, beaten 3½L in a C&D handicap last month. Market support would be notable having won off a 1lb higher mark in the past.
13 race maiden has finished well beaten in three starts since finishing fourth over an extended 1m1f in a maiden at Ballinrobe (good) on stable debut in July. Probably best watched at present.
Built on some promising efforts when winning by ¾L over C&D on his penultimate start. Interesting contender despite disappointing under a 6lb penalty over 7f here two days later.
Maiden after six starts finished a well beaten last of 13 in a handicap over this C&D on debut for this yard last month. Others appear to hold stronger claims.
Eight race maiden was beaten 24L when seventh in a 1m2f handicap at Navan (good-to-firm) in July. Given a break since and market support would be notable on return from a break with this drop in distance likely to suit.
Sole success from 16 previous starts came over this trip at Longchamp (good) in 2015. Disappointing in two starts for this stable and others make more appeal.
13 race maiden was beaten 4L when seventh in a 1m3f handicap at Kempton in September. Changed stables since and is an interesting runner dropping in trip.
12 race maiden finished an eye-catching 3¼L sixth in a handicap over this C&D last week. Making his stable debut and first start since being gelded on that occasion and is of interest in this contest.
Victorious in a maiden over this C&D in February but has struggled in handicap company since including when 6L sixth over this C&D early last month on her return from a break. First reserve.
