Did well to win from where he was at Killarney (1m3f, yielding) and the runner-up went into that race in decent form; Dean Curran rides again off just a 2lb higher mark; needs considering.

J: Dean Curran

Arrives bidding for a hat-trick after turf wins at Killarney and Roscommon; 6lb rise demands a bit more but the slight drop in trip is fine and his best efforts earlier in his career came on AW.

Won over 1m5f at Ballinrobe and then placed in his next two races, running particularly well over 1m6f at Galway; soft ground probably didn't help last time and drying conditions bring him into it.

One-time smart hurdler got off the mark on AW when making all to win over 1m4f here in September; back to form when a close second against a higher-rated rival over this trip last time in a falsely-run affair; a player.

Course winner who has risen 17lb in the ratings since switching to current yard last summer; landed a 1m4f handicap here in September, making all; found a 6lb rise difficult to cope with in two starts since but this trip should suit given he finished a good third at Tramore in July, while he has won twice at 2m over hurdles.

T: P J F Murphy

Trainer has got a great tune out of 6yo whose mark has risen over 20lb since midsummer; prominent racer threw in a below-par effort last time but previously made all over C&D and Powell may well have a chance to set his own fractions here.

Form & Verdict

Appeared to have a bit up his sleeve when off the mark in a 1m2f maiden at the Curragh (good) and, having posted an RPR of 82, this mark looks manageable; withdrawn on account of soft ground in the past, so could do with it drying out.

Off the mark at the third attempt in maidens when landing a 1m2f contest at the Curragh (runner-up has boosted the form); respectable handicap debut when placed at Roscommon and likely improver on AW debut.

Easily forgiven his last two defeats when flying too high at Group 2 level; won an AW 1m4f handicap earlier this year off 1lb higher so he's capable of going well.
