Won her maiden at Bellewstown in August but has been bitterly disappointing since barely beaten another rival home. Travelled well before finding nothing at Dundalk last time and a risky proposition at present.

Dundalk maiden winner on debut in November. Has shown no signs that this handicap mark is within his grasp though and needs to bounce back.

Sole win in seven starts came in a Limerick maiden but she's struggled since switched to handicaps. Useful claimer takes off 5lb but others make more appeal.

A winner twice last year. Well beaten in Listed company last time but sure to relish the drop down in class here.

Canford Cliffs filly made a winning start in 5f maiden on the AW at Dundalk in December and just touched off over 6f there in January off this handicap mark. Should be more to come now reverting to turf.

Broke maiden at Dundalk (6f, aw) in September. Struggled off her opening mark of 81 though and she's only had minor relief from the assessor.

Lost her maiden tag when winning at Dundalk last time but she has run well on turf before and she's respected given the manner she won that race last time.

Consistent but doesn't win often enough and likely to bump into a few better handicapped types here. In good hands but must improve and show he's as effective on turf as he is on AW.

Has showed improved form on her last couple of starts here and shapes like she has some ability. 2lb relief from the handicapper for her latest effort looks a little lenient and may do better here.

Still a maiden after 10 starts. Shaped with some promise in some of his recent starts but likely to need relief from the handicapper before getting his head in front.

Won at Dundalk over this trip last year and returned with a promising effort lover C&D on heavy ground. Possibly produced too soon at the Currragh last time and better expected here.

Consistent sort who lost her maiden tag at Dundalk last time when making all. An obvious pace angle in here and drop back in trip sure to suit.

Sole win came on AW and hasn't looked anywhere near as effective in eight unplaced starts on turf. Hard to fancy.

Was running well on AW over the winter but has not been in the same form when previously seen on turf. Ruined his chance from the stall last time when too keen and more needed.

A winner at Tipperary last time out having shown virtually nothing in four prior starts. Completely different conditions here though has had a hefty hike in the weights.

Well beaten on all her four starts and showed nothing in a handicap last time out. Likely to need some relief from the assessor before becoming of interest.
