Made all to win a 1m5f maiden at Down Royal in June; struggled on first two starts in handicaps; found his form again when dropped to this trip at Leopardstown, beating a subsequent winner; may not cope with younger and less exposed rivals here.

Musselburgh winner on stable/hurdle debut but didn't really build on that in two subsequent novices; handicap debut and interesting to see how he fares in the betting against stablemate Valentino Dancer.

Useful Flat-racer; created pretty good impression on stable/hurdle debut at Musselburgh (1m7f, good) in February but has been held in two subsequent novice hurdles (both on good to soft) and will need to up his game to win a race this competitive on his handicap hurdle debut; tongue-tie added.

Form & Verdict

Beat two Ballydoyle-trained subsequent winners when landing a Navan maiden over this trip in May; now dropped in class after a Group 3 run at the Curragh; prominent for a long way then, and was notably strong in the market; interesting to see how the market assess his chance now relative to stablemate Goodie Two Shoes.

Close third in a Listed race in June (1m1f) and with that form to his name he's the highest rated in this field by some margin; needs to bounce back from a heavy defeat in handicap company last time but should be fine over 7f and has to go well.

Went up 7lb for a Listed third at Leopardstown on his penultimate start; probably too high to feature here.

Form & Verdict

Dam an unraced close relative of Derby winner Authorized; made a strong impression when recovering from a slow start (reportedly hit in the face when the gate opened) to win on debut in a 1m3f maiden at Killarney; value of the form is questionable, but the manner of the win suggests significant promise.

Decent Flat sort with three wins in that sphere; solid efforts in her two completed hurdle starts and holds Final Decision on latest Down Royal run; looks a leading player.

Smart flat handicapper with three wins from only five starts, notably making all at Gowran last month; promising enough hurdles debut at Leopardstown last Christmas but took a heavy fall in a Grade 3 at Fairyhouse afterwards, hopefully that hasn't affected her confidence; major player.
