Timeform on Shattered Love

Rocket Lad - 15:15 Gowran Park

Rocket Lad made an encouraging debut in this sphere at Killarney last time, still having every chance when departing at the last and, providing he's none the worse for that spill, he should make amends here in what doesn't look the strongest race of its type. Drury rates as the main danger, proving a completely different proposition after a 3 month break in a Cork bumper last time. Run Wild Fred and Ballymacaw are two worth considering for a place.

Shattered Love - 16:25 Gowran Park

Shattered Love enjoyed a cracking season in 2017/18, winning five times in all, but she didn't quite reach the heights that connections anticipated last season, for all she wasn't disgraced at the highest level on multiple occasions. She disappointed in the Irish National when last seen in April, but she boasts a particularly good record when fresh and, in receipt of weight-all-round, she could be the way to go. Peregrine Run has enjoyed a fine summer and is feared, whilst Us And Them may well improve now his stamina is drawn out further.

Static Jack - 17:00 Gowran Park

The Gavin Cromwell-trained Static Jack looks potentially well-treated returned to fences after nearly two years away from this sphere, and he should be backed accordingly. Graineyhill heads up the dangers, with his jumping markedly improving after a couple of solid efforts at Perth recently. Freewheelin Dylan and Kilkishen meet again, but could be only battling for place money.
