Maze Runner is working really well – but he always does. He ran twice at Galway and that ran disappointingly at Tramore. He wouldn’t be high on my list of the likely winner of this contest.
Listen Dear got caught for toe at Ballinrobe which is a much sharper track. She steps up to 2m4f here and that will suit her. Alisier D’irlande likes to gallop along and should set a decent pace, It’s a while since we’ve seen Carlingford Lough and he isn’t getting any younger.
Dorells Pierji has won his last two races and should give a really good account of himself.
He’s fit and well and ready for action and looks to be our best chance of the day.
Getoutofmeway should handle the ground here and I’d say will be winning races over the winter.
Shanakey is a six-year-old mare who is bred to stay, though may appreciate better ground. The bumper horses are in great order at the moment so hopefully she can be competitive.
