119-10OR: 103CD

Popular course winning veteran, still running well in defeat in a number of starts since May. Losing run stretches back to 2017 but the gelding has record of three from nine here and a bold bid stepping up to this trip is not out of the question.

49-5OR: 98

Smart juvenile for Charlie Hills, but failed to hit the heights last year, and only eighth on debut for new yard in the Group 3 Gladness Stakes in April. Looks an interesting recruit to this surface.

79-3OR: 96CD

Comes here on a four-timer following a win over 6f and a double over 7f. 17lb higher than the win in October but more than capable of another bold bid stepping up to this trip under in form jockey.

49-0OR: 93CD

Solid and consistent sort on this surface winning on four occasions round here including three triumphs over C&D from five starts. Run here last month should have the Teofilo gelding spot on for this contest.

58-13OR: 92CD

Back to winning ways when landing a handicap over C&D in October off a 5lb lower mark beating Mutadaawel a head. Beaten since finishing behind Innamorare last month from his revised mark.

48-9OR: 88C

Winner of two of his five starts at this track, both wins coming over 6f. Out of form in a number of turf starts over the summer and appears to have a mountain to climb here.

88-7OR: 86CD

Solid and consistent at this track winning six of his ten starts here including landing a double over C&D in October/November. Those victories came in claiming company this is a little more difficult.

38-6OR: 86BFCD

Won for the second time in his career when landing a 14-runner handicap over C&D before finishing sixth of 13 over the same combination off a 6lb higher mark. Likely to run well once again.

48-6OR: 85D

Won for the second time in his career when landing a Leopardstown 1m handicap on good to firm ground in July on his final start for trainer Kevin Prendergast. Down the field on stable debut at this track over 7f last month and more needed here.

48-5OR: 84

Tough and genuine sort, winner of three of his 20 starts on turf. Behind Geological on a couple of occasions over 7f and 1L behind Innamorare over C&D last month. Place claims.

48-4OR: 83BFCD

Off the mark here over C&D in the early part of last month before a fruitless trip to Wolverhampton on Monday finishing a well held fourth of seven when sent off the 15/8f. Capable of bouncing back here.

38-4OR: 84C

Put a number of disappointing efforts behind her when winning over 7f on AW debut in October off a 5lb lower mark. Not disgraced in Listed company over C&D early last month and can go well at a price.

48-4OR: 78CD

Has taken to this surface well boasting a record of a win and four place efforts from six starts here. C&D winner previously and ran with credit over the combination in October finishing third of 14 beaten 2¾L. Lively outsider.

88-4OR: 51C

10th of 22 beaten over 12L on first start following a 732 day break at the Curragh in October. C&D winner previously but likely to be up against it.

Betting

Forecast

Theobald (3/1), Trading Point (13/2), Geological (13/2), Innamorare (8/1), Kafu (8/1), Gordon Lord Byron (9/1), She's A Babe (12/1), Raphael (12/1), Yuften (12/1), Nebo (12/1), Mutadaawel (14/1), Sirjack Thomas (14/1), Freescape (25/1), Yes I Am (100/1)

Verdict

The veteran Gordon Lord Byron is likely to take the field along in the early stages given his berth in stall one. The 11-year-old steps up in trip here following a fine effort to finish second of 13 beaten ¾L behind Geological early last month but may set the race up for potential closers in the shape of the Jim Bolger-trained THEOBALD who can land his fourth win over C&D. The Ger Lyons-trained Kafu will appreciate a trip he won over at the end of October off a 6lb lower mark and can mount a serious challenge along with fellow C&D winners, Geological who is on a four-timer, Innamorare, subject of a wayward gamble at Wolverhampton on Monday and Trading Point for trainer Damien English.
