There was plenty to like about how Red Avenger went through with the job at the Curragh 11 days ago but WATERBOY could still have more to offer as a more lightly raced 4yo and he gets the nod on his drop back to 1m from 1m2f. On the basis of that form, Dinkum Diamond has to be given a chance, though he is winless since October 2015. If Atlas puts it all together he could well be the one the all have to beat but that is a big 'if'. [Mark Boylan]

Bumping into one or two too strong in maidens and 3yo now makes handicap bow off 76 in first-time blinkers (replacing cheekpieces); represents top team from box seat draw but may improve for handicap experience.

Opened account over this C&D in May when landing 20-runner handicap off 66 before returning here over 1m2f when couldn't land a blow in third with subsequent winner Aussie Valentine (runs here 7.20) stealing a march on rivals, runner-up has since won too; likely to take a hand off 1lb lower.

Travelled like the winner at the Curragh 11 days ago over 1m before failing to find major amount for pressure, though still only beaten 1.75l; drop in class here and should be involved but not the most frequent of winners.

Enjoys quick ground and had appeared well-handicapped for a while before taking advantage of mark 17lb lower than his last win when landing Curragh handicap 11 days ago over 7f in rough race; raised 5lb and up 1f; could make bold bid if in the mood again.

Makes first start for 249 days but went well fresh last season before heading to Galway where was second the previous year; 2lb lower than last winning mark and posted decent efforts in defeat when last seen behind Wonder Laish and Swamp Fox but may want easier ground and surely needs further.

Respectable effort in heavy here before best showing of season over this C&D (good-to-firm) when second to Waterboy and ahead of Red Avenger, 6lb better off with first rival and 4lb better with the latter; down 1lb after below-par Naas run latest; player.

Showed improvement on final maiden start (Gowran) under today's 10lb claiming rider before trying handicap company here over 7f in first-time tongue-tie latest, never really looking comfortable; dropped 3lb; must improve.

Rated 83 in second half of 2016 and now just 69 after two okay efforts last year and poor seasonal bow; not disgraced at Limerick on penultimate start off 3lb higher than now and saddle slipped last week at Bellewstown so shouldn't be judged on that.

Thirsk maiden auction winner on second start for George Margarson (September 2016) makes first start for new team having been gelded; best form is over 6f and likely to need run after 252 days off but mark looks workable.
