Beaten over 1m on her only start on turf finishing sixth of 11 beaten 7L looking one pace inside the final furlong. Won at Dundalk on the AW earlier this month over 1m and one for the shortlist.
Poor 52-rated handicapper for David Barron at the turn of the year but showed some promise in two of her three starts at Dundalk on the AW before a promising return to turf earlier this month at Cork over 6½f.
Has generally disappointed connections in two starts since a return to the track last month. Vast improvement needed to figure.
Did not show a lot as a juvenile but there was plenty to like about his return at Cork earlier this month after blowing the start eventually beaten 5L on stable debut. Capable of having his say.
Well beaten and never nearer in three starts since March including a 8½L defeat last month. Plenty to prove in this contest looking at exposed form.
Daughter of Thewayyouare out of a Footstepsinthesand mare, well held in AW maidens at Dundalk and beaten 22L on turf debut at Limerick over 1m last month.
No win in 15 starts and looks fully exposed as modest already. Has shown ability on the sand at Dundalk but had not shown much before finishing third of 16 beaten 7L at Gowran Park earlier this month.
Unable to halt the alarming slide in form in five starts here since the turn of the year. Vast improvement needed to figure.
Well beaten at big prices on her three starts last year. Finished 12th of 16 beaten over 18L behind Dream Of Words at 33/1 over 7f earlier this month. Unlikely to play a part in the finish here.
Nothing of note in five starts last term before winning on seasonal bow ridden to lead inside the final furlong keeping on well to land a 6½f handicap at Cork earlier this month. Needs to show consistency now.
Generally well beaten in three career starts over a variety of trips including a heavy defeat finishing 14th of 16 at Navan last month.
Improved to produce his best effort in four starts finisihing seventh of 14 beaten 3¼L behind Footstepintime at Cork earlier this month. Will need to improve once again.
Well beaten and never nearer in two career starts in October before beaten under 3f on seasonal bow in a Cork maiden earlier this month. Plenty of work to do based on form shown.
Failed to build on two encouraging runs on the AW at Dundalk with a 13L defeat back at the track earlier this month. Improvement unlikely in first-time cheekpieces.
Improved from first start of the season when finishing 2½L behind Footstepsintime finishing fifth of 14. Will need to improve again.
Slight improvement on last start beaten 5½L at Dundalk on the AW over 6f but still only manage to finish ninth of 10 in February. Looks opposable once again.
