Running well this year, winning a course and distance Premier Handicap two starts ago. He wasn't disgraced in a very competitive Galway Handicap last time and this is much easier, with his mark left unchanged. Interesting claims
Three-time winner and it was a strong contest he competed in at Galway.

Just the one win from seven starts, though that victory did come at this venue. She's been placed on two of her three starts this year, both times off this mark. She needs the ground to stay at least 'good' but is unlikely to be far away.
Won his maiden here and saw the race out well to finish third at Limerick two months ago.

Fell short on his hat-trick bid at Leopardstown in July, very disappointing behind Lethal Power. He rarely runs a bad race so that run was very curious, but he's undoubtedly better than that. Positive jockey booking, yard also runs Band Of Outlaws.
Looked good in winning here before faring less well behind Lethal Power; better than that.

In great form this year, winning two of his last three starts. He continued his progressive season with a comfortable victory at Leopardstown, pushed clear to sort. A six-pound rise isn't harsh and he wouldn't mind any rain, strong contender.
Nicely on top in the finish at Leopardstown last time; respected off 6lb higher.

Scored twice over the mile at Leopardstown earlier this year, safely held the last twice in small field handicaps. He needs to return to his progressive ways in a tough contest and his limitations seem to have been exposed.
Dual 1m Leopardstown winner in early summer but held with no excuses the last twice.

Has won her last two starts over the mile, with two defeats inbetween the victories coming over the 1m 2f distance. This is a quick turnaround from her latest run at Sligo which is a small concern, but she remains unexposed at the mile.
Never in the hunt when well-held third at Sligo four days ago, with 1m4f not to blame.

Sole victory came in a Newcastle maiden back in 2016, yet to make an impact in five runs from this yard. He's looked very one-paced in terms of his finishing effort and despite his mark looking dangerous, others do look stronger.
Not a bad run here last time when mid division over 7f but needs more.

Yet to finish out of the frame in six starts, again placed second when beaten half a length in a Killarney maiden three weeks ago. He returns to handicaps off a feasible mark, but this is much more competitive and more is needed.
Consistent maiden perhaps beaten by a decent horse when odds-on at Killarney last time.
