Form & Verdict
Latest of 2 wins came at Dundalk last autumn; out of depth in German Group 2 on latest and earlier handicap form leaves him with plenty to find.

Form & Verdict
First reserve; not the most consistent but pays his way and well capable of popping up from time to time; recent hurdle runs not that encouraging however but folly to rule out entirely.

4 yo Filly

OR: 64

Form & Verdict
Second reserve; steadily progressive of late, off the mark in 1m5f Tipperary handicap last month on softer ground, looking as though she would stay a good bit further; 6lb rise makes this tough but no surprise if she improved again.

Off the mark over extended 1m4f at Tipperary on yielding/soft ground before creditable fourth of 19 over 2m at the festival here in July; not seen since and fitness will be tested on this ground.

Got off the mark at the eighth time of asking in C&D handicap in May (yielding to soft); good run off 6lb higher when fourth at Galway (2m) nine days ago; another 1lb to contend with here and no surprise if right there again.

Third reserve; maiden ran nice Irish debut when third at Roscommon (soft) in May but has struggled twice since and lots to find with Whatcouldhavebeen on recent Tipperary run.
