Won over C&D on debut back in September 2015 in a two-year-old maiden on good to yielding ground. Not disgraced in three starts over the summer but losing run now stands at 12.
Not seen since losing his action on the AW at Dundalk in May. Yard happy to bring the gelding back today and could surprise taking his win at Leopardstown in May in to account.
Won at the Curragh in August beating 29 rivals in a 6f handicap, beaten on yielding ground since off a 6lb higher mark but seem to revel in the heavy conditions last time out in a Listowel handicap when second of 14 to Youceeyouceecee.
Has been mainly plying his trade on the AW at Dundalk and last seen winning over 1m in February. Market best guide here.
Veteran who is running better than ever winning here at the festival last month and running solid races in defeat since. Still 4lb higher than last win but sure to run his race again.
Last seen on turf finishing 18L behind Bubbly Bellini here at the festival last month and requires a chunk of improvement to play a role in this.
Well beaten and no impression when 12th of 13 on stable debut following a move from the Paul Cole yard. Difficult to see a turnaround of fortunes in this.
The drop back to 5f worked the oracle following a 12½L reverse at Roscommon over 7f previously. Given a mark of 72 on handicap debut but others make more appeal.
Dundalk winner over 6f in March and best effort since came when 3L third of ten at Limerick in April. Well beaten on three runs since and others hold stronger profiles here.
Slowly getting the hang of things in seven runs for this yard, just over 2L third of 14 at Naas in July when last out. That was over this trip, 1lb lower here and has to have some claims.
Not seen March when beaten 13L in a Naas handicap when with the Luke Comer yard. Others make more appeal returning from a break and on stable debut.
Solid and consistent without winning this term including a promising second of 19 beaten ¾L in a Navan 6f handicap. Improving and one for the shortlist.
Fairly consistent and genuine in the last six weeks including two solid runs here at the festival. Could hit the frame now 1lb lower than last win.
Has put in some gutsy and genuine performances over the summer and finally getting his head in front in a Navan 6f handicap earlier this month. Can continue the good form but is now 6lb higher.
Beaten but not disgraced over the spring and summer but still an eight race maiden. First-time visor last time out is replaced by her regular tongue-tie.
Did improve on two below-par performances at Leopardstown and Cork to finish 11th of 19 beaten 4¼L last time out in a Navan 5f handicap but others make more appeal here.
First Reserve: Disappointing 13th of 14 and 12th of 15 in two starts here at the festival last month and a vast improvement is needed here to figure.
