Off the mark when winning over an extended 1m2f at Dundalk last time out. Step up in trip appears to have suited the last twice and he is worth a check in the market upped in distance once more.
Improved on sole effort at two when finishing third over 1m4f at Leopardstown (good) last time out. Cheekpieces worn that day are retained here but this looks a much tougher contest.
broke his maiden when winning over 1m4f at Leopardstown (good) last weekend. Step up in trip looks likely to suit and he is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Impressive winner of his second start at two when coming home 6L clear of his rivals at Tipperary (1m1f, heavy) in October. Finished runner-up on seasonal debut earlier this month and stepping up in trip here.
Winner of two of his three turf starts so far including when the 13L winner of a novice contest at Ripon (1m4f, soft) on his penultimate outing. Tongue tie applied having been beaten on the AW over 1m6f last time.
Leopardstown maiden winner over 7f last July but struggled since including in a 1m2f Group 3 at The Curragh recently. Others make more appeal.
Soft ground maiden winner over an extended 7f at two and ran well in Listed company on her seasonal debut. Well held in the 1000 Guineas last time out and step up in trip not certain to suit.
