Mister Fotis gelding out of a Kheleyf mare related to the former Willie Mullins-trained McKinley winner of a 19k Sandown handicap hurdle over 2m4f. Market likely to reveal expectations on debut.
Second of 10 beaten 3L in a 3m point-to-point earlier this month but unlikely to trouble the market leaders here.
Gelding by Flying Legend out of a East Wood mare related to multiple winners. Point-to-point winner in December and likely to improve on his 7L defeat here in a 2m1½f bumper in March.
Has failed to complete in five point-to-point starts, three since the turn of the year and easily dismissed.
Milan gelding cost €45,000 as a three-year-old, runner-up in maiden on point debut and beaten 28L in a Punchestown bumper in October before disappointing again in December in a Clonmel maiden hurdle. May appreciate switch back to bumpers.
Poor in two point-to-point starts and beaten 39L on bumper debut last month. First-time tongue-tie unlikely to bring about any improvement.
Not disgraced on debut at Gowran Park in January before improving to finish second of 15 beaten 11L in a Cork maiden hurdle earlier this month. Live contender switching back to a bumper.
Behind Klassy Kay on racecourse debut in a Fairyhouse bumper on soft ground fading to finish 10th of 13 beaten 25L behind Dream Conti. Hard to fancy.
Looks to have had his chance well beaten and never nearer in two bumpers since March. Unlikely to trouble the judge here.
Ahead of Basils Boy but a full 20L behind Dream Conti in a Fairyhouse bumper last month. Could well improve on that performance but place claims at best.
Last Year's Winner
