Had a heavy fall over fences at Gowran in February, and has possibly needed the summer break to overcome that experience mentally. Goes on deep ground, and her form from 2014/2015 gives her some chance at least.
A two time bumper scorer (handles cut) who has only progressed steadily in three starts over hurdles, but time is on her side and she could make an impression eventually.
Runner up in her last three starts (2m to 2m4f), so perhaps the application of cheek-pieces implies that her trainer thinks she has been keeping a bit back for herself. Handles cut and respected.
Scorpion mare whose form figures in point-to-points contain nothing other than letters. Rules debut with another letter alongside her name; the 't' for first time tongue strap.
Former French mare (placed in soft ground bumpers). Was making her stable debut, and first start for 14 months at Killarney in May when a distant fifth of 16 to Une Lavandiere (2m6f). Wears a first time tongue tie.
Borris House point-to-point winner in February (3m heavy), and sold for £14,000 the following month. No show on her recent hurdles debut, and this looks tough enough.
Kept exclusively to bumpers following her debut hurdles third at Tramore in April. Shown a limited degree of promise (runner up at Kilbeggan in May), and holds outside claims of a place.
Out of the 2m2f-2m4f hurdles winner Native Of Kerry, so some hope for the future ahead of her hurdles debut, but her previous efforts in bumpers aren't overly eye-catching to say the least.
Beaten a keeping on 16¾L when third to Sassy Diva in a Wexford bumper last month (2m heavy), and this Westerner mare starts off at a realistic level over hurdles over a trip which should suit.
Half-sister to a couple of winners including Apache Stronghold, but was never better than mid-division behind Jetz over C&D last week.
Beat her now stablemate Lackaneen Leader by 1L when taking a mares maiden at Cragmore in February, but was tailed off on her recent hurdles/stable debut at Downpatrick. Questions to answer, but one to track over time.
3m mares maiden winner at Curraheen in April (good) who is a sister to the currently in form Western Jo. Outclassed when sixth to Glens Harmony on her stable/hurdles debut at Thurles last month, and could do better with experience gained.
Unraced third foal by Doyen out of an unraced dam (Majorite Bleue) who was a half-sister to five winners. Worthy of market inspection.
Once raced Yeats filly whose dam La Sarrazine was a 1m-1m2f Flat, and 2m hurdle winner. Finished well down the field behind Glens Harmony at Thurles last month (Be My Westerner sixth).
Just the sole completion in four starts in point-to-points, so safely ignored ahead of her rules debut.
Unseated her rider at the ninth on her hurdles debut at Wexford last month (2m4f heavy) having shown precious little in bumpers. Wears a hood for the first time.
