Ran well enough off this mark on last month's return over 7f on the AW at Dundalk to warrant consideration for this prize, with first-time cheekpieces to aid cause.
Maiden after 15 outings including a 9¾L defeat in a handicap at Limerick last month. Handicap mark is falling but others make more appeal in this contest. Visor returns.
Struggled to land any sort of blow in three AW maidens at Dundalk over 6f/7f. Visor returns now for this handicap / turf bow. Should be given a check in the market.
Just the five runs so far, had shown glimpses of ability over 5f/6f in Britain before leaving Brian Meehan to join this yard. Stable debut and could have something to offer back up in trip.
Just the five runs behind her and she got off the mark in a 6f nursery on AW in final start of last season. Entitled to her chance in this line-up if ready to go on reappearance.
Poor in three turf maidens over 6f/7f last year, appeared to leave that behind on handicap bow at Dundalk (6f AW) in December when just failing to get up. Failed to match that in two runs at the same venue in March so has a question mark attached for now.
Promising efforts in two starts for this trainer both over longer trips, can be given a chance on drop back to 6f with Manning returning to the plate.
Winner of a claimer for Richard Fahey at Redcar over 7f in October, she did well to overcome wide draw and finish close seventh of 21 at Navan recently over this trip. Dropped 2lb, appears one of the more likely types in this.
Not disgraced in handicap bow over this trip at Dundalk last month on first start for this trainer, gets first-time cheekpieces now and may be capable of better still on just fifth start.
Still a maiden after ten starts, has been campaigned over different trips in three runs at Dundalk this year, latest over 5f when beaten 5L. Mark is slipping all the while, but hard to be confident.
Hasn't run since July, easily beaten off in trio of maidens, twice over 5f. Plenty more needed here on handicap debut and best watched unless money arrives.
Little encouragement so far in four starts in both maidens and handicaps. Soon beaten in handicap at Dundalk last time out over this trip. Plenty improvement needed.
Best effort to date when dropped right back in trip to this distance on AW at Dundalk last time, hung in the closing stages and beaten 4¾L. If he builds on that from 4lb mark with useful claimer also helping, may go close in this.
Colt had little part to play in three maidens back in the autumn, finishing last of 16 on sole turf outing at the Curragh over this trip. Returns from 183-day absence for handicap debut.
Has plenty to find on last month's handicap debut at this track over extended mile, when beaten 27L. Drops back in distance but two Curragh maiden over 6f last autumn don't offer a lot of encouragement.
Attempted to make all over 1m on handicap bow at Dundalk on the AW in March and eventually finished 3L away in third (of nine). Similar tactics might pay off if handling turf on debut now dropped back to 6f.
