Intensified boasts the highest rating back in maiden company but his form has taken a dip of late and he finished well behind third-placed Green Tag at Roscommon in August. The latter was also below par on his handicap debut at Gowran but both Coldstream and Expensive Taste showed some improvement over a mile at this track last time. The former finished ahead of Taqarrob but WATEED makes most appeal with a visor applied for the first time after finding only one too good on his last couple of outings. Pit Stop and Magnolia Beach are newcomers to note.
