Career best at Naas earlier this month over 5f when 2¾L third of 10. That form probably the best on offer here and big chance if first time blinkers are appreciated.
Progressed from two disappointing starts at Tipperary on debut and at Galway over 7f before a promising run when dropped to 5f last time out beaten 5¼L. One for the shortlist.
Never really threatened in seven starts to date (all over 5f). Flashed tail on a few occasions and behind Art Of Unity latest. Better off at the weights but may not reverse.
Has produced some solid performances as the autumn set in with close defeats at Tipperary and last time out at Gowran Park over 7f. Shapes like this trip suits and a danger off the same mark.
Lord Shanakill filly was beaten close to 15L on debut over 7½f at Roscommon and disappointed again at Dundalk before finishing sixth of 10 at Bellewstown when dropped in trip. Opening handicap mark makes little appeal.
Beaten 15L plus in all three starts. Handicap debut today but hard to find any evidence to recommend him.
Hasn't displayed anything in three turf maidens to merit suggestion winning on handicap debut. Hard to fancy him.
Stepped forward on three disappointing maiden starts to finish 2¾L behind Ballot Box in August when 7½f looked too far. 2lb lower, back to 6f and both cheek-pieces and tongue-tie applied so plenty of likely positives.
Well beaten in all three starts (last two at 100/1). Back from 1m to 6f here for handicap debut which may suit based on last run and good chance he runs best race to date off low weight.
Long layoff after first run on AW and both subsequent turf starts have seen her behind throughout. Leap of faith required to fancy her.
