Winner of this race in 2017; broke a ten-race losing run when scoring in a Listed race over a mile here last week. A repeat of that performance may well suffice this evening.
Back to close to his best at Leopardstown last week, should be in the thick of it again now

Admirable eleven-year-old bidding for the seventeenth win of his career today. Far from disgraced when third in a Group 2 at the Curragh last time out, but his losing run is currently at twenty-four, and he has a little to find at these weights.
11yo stalwart showed the fire still burns brightly at the Curragh latest, considered

Justified favouritism to land a Dundalk maiden last August, but she has failed to add to that success from her six starts since. Held in a handicap at Listowel last time out, and this is a significantly tougher assignment.

Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
Has gained two wins from her nine starts since joining these connections. By far the best of her three starts so far this season came when third in a Group 3 at the Curragh last month, but she struggled back in Listed company at Naas last time out.
Cracking third to Happen in the Athasi and well-below her best since, must bounce back

Course Winner - Won before at this course
Winner of a Listed race at Navan on his seasonal reappearance in April. Nowhere near that level of form when eighth in a Group 3 at Naas afterwards, however, and he has questions to answer now taking on his elders for the first time.
Smart Navan Listed winner disappointed at Naas but is capable of laying down big challenge

Broke her maiden tag at the fifth attempt when landing a Tipperary maiden last August. Has failed to add to that success from her three starts so far this campaign, however, and looks best watched on her return to Group company today.
Never looked like coming with a run between horses in Curragh handicap latest, more needed

C&D Winner - Won before on this course at this distance
Sole victory from her seven starts to date came in a handicap over today’s course and distance last October. Struggled in two Group 3’s earlier this campaign, however, and she was well held on her return to handicap company last time out.
Had Fire Fly behind latest but 80-rated filly looks up against it on these terms

Verdict

While the in-form Flight Risk is difficult to get away from, the evergreen GORDON LORD BYRON showed plenty of sparkle last time at the Curragh when staying on well over 6f
