20:30 Dundalk Fri 9 February 2018
Maiden after 15 starts and well beaten in all starts over jumps since joining this yard last year. Returns to the Flat today.
Returned to form of late following up a good second here by winning over C&D last time out. Interesting despite a 4lb rise in the weights.
Good effort in finishing 1L second to Carvelas on her penultimate outing. Well beaten since and a tongue tie is tried for the first time today.
Sole success came over 7f at Brighton (good) as a two-year-old in 2016. Ran well to finish 4L third over C&D on just his second start for this yard last month and one to note in this contest.
Disappointing since joining this yard but not beaten far despite finishing 12th of 13 over 1m here last time out. Worth a check in the market back up in trip.
12 race maiden and well held in a race won by Bog War over C&D last time out. Likely to struggle once more.
Winner over 1m2f at Chelmsford in 2016 and placed over hurdles and on the Flat since. Well beaten in two starts for this yard however and needs to return to form to figure.
Finished runner-up the last twice including over C&D last time out when having Bog War in front of him. Races off a 3lb higher mark today.
Improved on previous starts for this yard when finishing third to Carvelas over C&D last time out. Wide draw a negative on this occasion.
Broke her maiden at the 12th attempt when winning a maiden hurdle at Sligo (soft) in July 2016. Probably best watched on her first start since.
Dual winner and some fair efforts in handicap company of late. Held by a few of these on recent running and a visor is tried for the first time today.
Placed once from nine starts to date and could finish only ninth in a race won by Carvelas over C&D last time out.
Promising hurdler in France a couple of years ago and placed in that sphere and on the Flat for Jonjo O'Neill. Held on all three appearances for this yard. First reserve.
Signs of ability in eight starts so far but held by a few of these on running over C&D last time out. Third reserve.
