Finished third of 15 on heavy ground last time out in a Roscommon handicap 3L behind the highly thought of Youceeyouceecee following a year away from the track.
C&D winner beating 14 rivals in July on good to firm ground . Won on soft ground last time out in a Down Royal handicap over 7f. Could well go well again off 7lb higher mark.
Sole win in 16 starts came in a claimer earlier in the year at Gowran Park. Placed just once in six starts since and very disappointing at Leopardstown, before beaten on the beach at Laytown. Looks a tall order on recent form.
New lease of life recently, winning back-to-back races at Gowran Park and here over C&D both with some give underfoot. Lively contender off this mark.
Beaten favourite last time out in a Gowran Park handicap when third of 17 on soft ground last month. Has handled big fields previously but still 10lb higher than last win.
First-time hood had no effect last time out when well beaten 14th of 15 at the Curragh over 1m. Looks another struggle on the cards here and others preferred.
Well beaten behind Sleepy Head on belated seasonal debut earlier in the month on soft to heavy ground. Others hold stronger profiles in this contest.
Winner of four races on the Flat from 29 starts the last one coming in September 2016. Has toiled since having a meagre season and now races off 10lb lower mark than last win.
Second of 15 in a Killarney handicap over 1m on soft ground beaten ½L but has been largely disappointing this season, never looking like winning. Worth a market check now back down to a dangerous mark.
Course winner but has laboured in four seasonal starts including an 11½L defeat last time out in a Listowel handicap over 1m. Looks like another struggle on the cards here.
Winner on the AW at Dundalk in January but hasn't looked like winning in four starts on turf and others arrive in better form here.
Veteran mare who has struggled all season well beaten in all starts. Requires a chunk of improvement to play a leading role in this.
Small signs of improvement last time out when third of 16 at Gowran Park on heavy ground earlier in the month but had previously shown nothing in four previous season starts.
C&D winner back in August 2015. Has won since but is currently on a 23-race losing run and others make more appeal in this company.
