Former Dundalk winner (2016) only appeared twice in 2017 and not great in two starts so far this year; that said, not beaten far under today's jockey on his recent outing either, and now 13lb lower than winning mark.

Not the best strike-rate (2-26); latest win came over 1m at Dundalk last October; not beaten that far in what looked a very good 7f handicap at Leopardstown in May; still hard to fancy.

Had today's rival Beach Bar behind when running a respectable race at Limerick just over two weeks ago; looks well-handicapped on the best of his form.

Lightly-raced 4yo who opened his account with 1m handicap win here 20 days ago on what was only his sixth start; should stay this far too and looks the type to continue on an upward curve.

Always prominent when close third in Class 5 handicap at Newmarket in August (6f, good) then no show from off the pace in better grade the next twice; attacking ride in first-time cheekpieces from plum draw could see change in fortunes.

Positive Leopardstown effort on good-to-firm over 1m last month when second after having to make challenge wide; raised 1lb since and could be slightly more effective over a shade further than this 7f but obviously in good heart and holds place claims.

Similar sort of form in all three runs, perhaps raising his game a little when second to Ballydoyle's El Greco at Cork (1m, good); this easier surface might be welcomed.

Seems to be getting the hang of things on the evidence of last week's Gowran fourth; could now be ready to slot into handicap company with the possibility of improvement with the addition of tongue-tie.
