Scored at Tipperary in June over this sort of trip and remained competitive since in three runs, can't be dismissed.
Five-race maiden on the Flat, went very close on penultimate start at Cork in similar contest on good to firm, is rated 4lb higher for this and since a beaten favourite at Leopardstown. Not certain to love the ground.
Both wins have come at Gowran Park over 1m1½f on testing ground, including last month. Going up in trip for this, which is an unknown, market can be a good guide.
Still a maiden after 11 starts but has ran some fair races in defeat, including when 7L second of 11 last time at Fairyhouse. Has to improve to land the spoils.
Boasts some decent form in native France but not repeated since arriving on these shores, first-time blinkers on now and mark is sliding all the while. Could be a danger.
Appears to handle testing ground ok, but best run came at Limerick on good to firm in April, back up in trip for this having run well over 1m1f at Listowel on return from a break recently.
Filly was closing all the way to the line in Galway apprentice contest last week over this trip, perhaps having been given too much to do from the off pace. Good second of 17 there on soft ground, interesting contender.
Placed on previous two starts, including over C&D, not ruled out of contention but again might have to settle for supporting role.
Cost €50,000 but never looked like repaying the first instalment in three maidens at up to 1m5f, makes handicap debut with plenty improving to do.
Minor promise in maidens, beaten just over 6L in Galway apprentice contest last week over this trip and will have to improve to get involved.
Eight-race maiden, needs to find improvement on what has gone before to make an impact. Right back up in trip but others hold more obvious claims on form.
Six-race maiden, beaten just over 7L in apprentice contest at Galway last week over this trip on handicap bow, improvement not ruled out.
Some promise in first two runs, but tailed off last time out over 1m6f at Gowran Park in a maiden and looks one to give watching brief to for now.
Winner over this trip at Gowran Park in July off a mark of 50, not in the same mood in two runs since and would need to improve to win this in any case.
Some good efforts so far, latest a 5L fourth of 17 over this trip at Galway last week of this rating in similar company, capable of getting involved in the climax here.
