Verdict

RED CHARMER has been a brilliant servant for his new connections since being bought out of a Redcar seller at the beginning of August, winning four of his nine starts, and Marjorie Fife's gelding arrives on the back of a win at Musselburgh on Monday. He can prove too good for the likes of My Direction, who sports first-time blinkers, and Georgian Bay, who is likely to be more competitive at this level.

Verdict

RED CHARMER resumed winning ways dropped in grade at Musselburgh on Monday and has been found another good opportunity. Reckless Lad and My Direction are others to consider.

Verdict

EAGLE SONG has to give weight to all of his rivals having won over C&D in excellent style a fortnight ago, but his form at the trip suggests there is more to come and he can defy a 10lb rise. Sunset Nova ran his best race when third at Fairyhouse on his latest outing and looks a potential improver now switched to nurseries, while others to consider include Early Strike and Chernish.

Verdict

CHERNISH shaped better than the result in a 6f Cork nursery a fortnight ago, keeping on having been denied a clear run, so she could be the answer back up in trip. Eagle Song and Mona Lisa's Smile are feared most.

Verdict

KING'S FIELD got off the mark at the third time of asking when landing a maiden at Cork, justifying favouritism in the process, and the son of Kodiac looks to have the scope for improvement now running in handicaps. Classic Seniority was in decent form in the summer despite not getting his head in front and is respected making the trip over from England. Katiymann and Focus Of Attention look best of the remainder on their recent course performances.

Verdict

KATIYMANN has been a model of consistency this term, again finding only one too good over 1m here last week. He looks sure to give another good account and can come out on top with his AW record standing at 2-5. The low-mileage King's Field and Fuwairt are just 2 possible dangers however.

One win from 31 Flat runs. Sixteen runs since last win in 2017. 14/1, bit below form seventh of 20 in handicap at Naas (6f, good to soft) 17 days ago.

Verdict

PULSATING has been a little bit of a nomad of late, changing hands to Jamie Osborne for a run at Laytown and now finds herself making her first appearance for Conor O'Dwyer. She was beaten less than two lengths when second at Laytown last time and could easily better that now off the same rating for her new handler. Tyrconnell was a winner on the same card and has since made the podium at Naas. He could have more to come stepping up to seven furlongs, while C&D winner Bouquet Garni has performed well off this mark on the last three occasions and arrives here in good form.

Verdict

SEANIE has a solid record at this track and signalled that he was ready to capitalise on a lenient mark when third at Wolverhampton a couple of starts back, so he's worth another chance to confirm that encouragement following a lesser effort on turf. In-form Tyrconnell could provide the main danger ahead of the less-exposed Roman Gal.

Verdict

AHLAN BIL ZAIN kept on well to score by a neck over course and distance last week and Mick Halford's four-year-old should have a part to play once again off a 4lb higher mark, which looks well within his capabilities. Eacharn's last win came off this rating and he has to be high on the shortlist, while Dolly Levi and Vocal Relation are both lightly raced with plenty of potential.

Verdict

AHLAN BIL ZAIN confirmed previous promise when winning over C&D last week and seems sure to go well again in his follow-up bid. Three Majors and Eacharn are a couple of others to consider.
