Dual winner in France but well held on sole start for Richard Rowe last summer. Good effort when 7L fourth in a Listed contest over 1m4f at Cork (heavy) last time. Wears a tongue tie for the first time.
Dual winner for Ralph Beckett last year but finished well beaten on heavy ground at The Curragh over 1m2f when debuting for this stable recently. Stepping up in distance.
In great form since joining this yard winning twice earlier this month including over 1m4f at Roscommon (soft) last time out. Raised 9lb for that success but every chance of her following up.
Maiden winner at Fairyhouse (1m4f, heavy) last October and successful over hurdles since. Making just her second appearance in handicap company in this contest.
Well beaten on both starts so far this season including over C&D last time out. Handicap mark is falling as a result and cheekpieces return for this.
Placed over 1m2f on heavy ground here last October but failed to place in five subsequent outings and probably best watched on this occasion.
Placed over 2m at Dundalk on her penultimate outing and interesting to see how she fares having contested a Listed event over 1m6f at Gowran Park (soft-to-heavy) subsequently.
Broke her maiden at the seventh time of asking when winning over 1m2f at Clonmel (heavy) earlier this month. Races off an 8lb higher mark and one to note stepping up in distance on just her third start for this yard.
Hurdles winner and beaten a neck over 1m4f at Roscommon (soft) last time out.. Step up in trip likely to suit and she is one to note racing from out of the weights on her handicap debut.
