59-12OR: 91C

Winner at the second time of asking on this surface when landing a 14-runner 1m2½f handicap last month off a 5lb lower mark keeping on well for pressure in the closing stages. Step up in trip unlikely to hinder the geldings progression.

39-10OR: 93BF

Running well in defeat in a couple of starts in recent weeks over 1m2½f including running Charcor to 1½L last month. Could be capable of a bold bid in first-time cheekpieces.

49-8OR: 87

Winner of three of his 15 Flat starts on turf, the Born To Sea gelding has been struggling a little in a number of starts since a win at Leopardstown in July. Needs a chunk of improvement on polytrack debut.

59-4OR: 83CD

Solid and consistent mare who keeps on defying the odds, landing a four-timer at the track since February. Two from two over C&D and anther bold show looks to be on the cards.

59-3OR: 82CD

Nothing but a number of solid and consistent efforts over C&D since September. The son of Casamento is hindered more often than not by his running style of racing in rear and usually having to weave his way through in the closing stages.

49-1OR: 80

Sole win gained in 2017 and out of her depth in Listed class at Cork and Limerick in October before a creditable run at this venue over 1m2½f behind Charcor last month. Needs a few to falter.

39-1OR: 84C

Solid returns running at this venue hitting the frame on four of his seven starts including a couple of victories. Good effort behind Charcor over 1m2½f last month and unlikely to be hindered by another step up in trip.

69-1OR: 80CD

Winner of five of his 21 starts at the track the son of Intikhab won over C&D in September off a 4lb lower mark. Beaten since but more than capable of hitting the frame in this contest.

38-12OR: 81BFD

Frustrating son of Dansili, winner of two of his eight starts for trainer Roger Charlton. Last of seven on final start for the handler when reportedly 'stopping quickly' at Wolverhampton in October. Best watched on stable debut.

48-10OR: 75C

Daughter of Lord Shanakill sending out mixed messages in a number of starts on turf over the summer. Last seen finishing behind a number of today's rivals over 1m2½f, a race won by Charcor. May have to settle for minor honours.

88-6OR: 71CD

50/1 winner of the Curragh Ladies Derby and followed that up with a solid run in a competitive event at Leopardstown in August. Well held here in September but is a three-time C&D winner. Not to be taken lightly.

Betting

Forecast

Sky Seven (3/1), Charcor (3/1), Nimitz (9/2), Bold Approach (5/1), Sheisdiesel (8/1), Ciao (10/1), Spruce Meadows (20/1), Moonmeister (25/1), Great Bear (25/1), Shekiba (28/1), Magnetic North (33/1)

Verdict

C&D winner NIMITZ deserves a change of fortune following a number of gallant efforts over the combination to hit the frame on each of his four starts since September. The five-year-old should be followed if the subject of market interest as post-time approaches to win for the fourth time at this venue. The Jessica Harrington-trained Charcor and the stepping up in trip, Sky Seven appear the obvious danger while the solid and consistent Sheisdiesel who is two from two over C&D is not to be underestimated.
