Cold Recent Form Jockey - 0 wins from 17 in the last 14 days (0%)
Inconsistent gelding who has been held in both starts after scoring this year, down the field at Galway last time. This is far easier and he runs off a two pound lower mark, although he loses his claimer and his overall profile suggests he's vulnerable.
Draw scuppered his chances at Galway, no surprise if he bounced back on favoured ground

Cold Recent Form Jockey - 1 wins from 23 in the last 14 days (4%)
Won a big field handicap on reappearance, running well in defeat in three starts since including when a close up fifth in Listed company two starts back. Struggled at Galway last time, and whilst this is easier, she's a three pounds higher in the weights.
Never counted back in handicap company at Galway and 3lb higher again here so has it to do

Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Three times a winner this year, he hasn't been beaten far in his four other starts. A ready winner at Bellewstown last month, he'll have no issue with the drop back to seven, although he'll have to be at his very best to defy this career high mark.
6yo still on the upgrade and doesn't mind an ease in the ground

Scored impressively on stable debut in September, placed on handicap debut from this mark subsequently. Has struggled in both starts since however, including on reappearance in March. Returning from another break, he's overlooked.
Likes it soft but may need this after an absence, likely with an autumn campaign in mind

Cold Recent Form Jockey - 1 wins from 23 in the last 14 days (4%)
Gained his first win on turf at the thirteenth attempt over course and distance in June. Wasn't beaten far at all from just a pound lower at the Curragh subsequently; could hit the frame if bouncing back from a poor run under a claimer last time out.
C&D winner in June needs to bounce back from tame Fairyhouse run; easier ground an unknown

Cold Recent Form Jockey - 1 wins from 37 in the last 14 days (3%)
Has struggled on good ground in two starts since scoring on soft at Limerick in April. Remains three pounds higher than for that, and whilst conditions are better suited than the extended five she faced last time, she should still come up short.
Looks a bit high in the handicap right now though easier ground should suit

Was knocking on the door this spring in maiden company before scoring readily over course and distance in June. Bounced back from an underwhelming run over six to place at Lepardstown last time; interesting contender with five claimed.
C&D maiden winner needs to take another step forward to feature

Having her first run here for a new yard here, in a considerably easier assignment than what she faced last time. Wasn't disgraced in Listed company there and she's running off a basement mark here with a further five claimed; each way claims.
Hasn't convinced in handicaps and 3lb wrong here on first start for new yard
