20:00 Dundalk Fri 10 January 2020
Winner of two of his 16 starts over C&D. Possibilities of a decent effort racing 5lb lower than last winning mark.
Off the mark at the 10th time of asking on the Bated Breath geldings fifth visit to this track, his first over C&D last month. Beaten since off revised mark but another bold bid looks in the offing.
Now down to a mark 28lb lower than a rating of 89 at the start of last season. Has gone off the boil in a couple of efforts in October and is hard to fancy on polytrack and stable debut.
Backed as if defeat was out of the question last month over C&D. Beaten off his revised mark since finishing nearer last than first when dropping back in trip.
Winner of one of his eight starts over C&D. Running with plenty of credit over the combination in a couple of starts since November. Could be dangerous racing 1lb lower than last winning mark.
Running well in defeat with plenty of credit at this venue over 1m and C&D last month. First-time visor could well spark more improvement.
Course winner that has also won over a similar trip. Ran well in defeat on most recent start over C&D last month. Capable of another bold effort as he approaches last winning mark.
Yet to hit the frame in nine career starts including three runs at this track over 6f/1m. Hasn't looked a winner in waiting with first time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.
Winner of two of her 19 career starts with the daughter of Lord Shanakil successful in one of her two starts over C&D. Place claims racing 3lb lower than last winning mark.
Yet to show any spark in a number of starts at this venue over 7f/5f. Needs to step up on recent form and now races 10lb lower than last winning mark.
Well held in a number of starts on turf over the summer before an encouraging return to this surface finishing fifth of 14 beaten 6L last month. C&D winner not easily dismissed now back below last winning mark.
Not getting the rub of the green in a couple of recent starts at the track including over C&D last month. Liable to find one or two better handicapped sorts lurking.
Winner of three of her 22 career starts including a couple of victories on this surface. Out of sorts C&D winner who now finds herself racing 7lb lower than last winning mark.
18-race maiden yet to hit the frame in seven starts at this venue. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
