Timeform on A Zenon Nite

#1 Wilmas Irish Rover - Ruidoso Downs R1 (20:00 BST)

Wilmas Irish Rover has been set some stiff tasks in recent outings and should be much more in his comfort zone here. The last time he dropped down to this sort of level saw him record a decisive success over C&D in August, and his supporters will be hopeful of a similar outcome this time. Lons Oxbow looks best of the rest if fully wound up after a three-month absence, leaving Keep On Zenon On to complete the shortlist.

#8 Amor N Passion - Ruidoso Downs R3 (20:50 BST)

Amor N Passion could hardly have done it any easier when resuming winning ways at Sunland Park last time, forging clear in the straight to win land the spoils by 16 and a half lengths. The early speed he showed there suggests the drop back to five furlongs won't be an issue in this claimer, which looks no tougher than last time, and it will take a good one to go with him if he arrives in the same sort of form. Another Brother and My Indian Warrior head the list of dangers.

#8 A Zenon Nite - Ruidoso Downs R8 (22:55 BST)

A Zenon Nite is another horse who will appreciate the drop in grade here after a few comprehensive beatings in better company. Even then he has shown enough to suggest he remains as good as ever, and this looks a good opportunity for him in what is much the weakest race he has contested for some time. Drive Thru Gary and Runaway Regent could be the ones to give the selection most to think about.
