Held on all three starts so far including twice in claiming company. Others have a more obvious chance in this contest.
Unraced daughter of Bushranger bought cheaply as a yearling. Half-sister to a three time winner but probably best watched on belated debut.
Unraced gelded son of Kodiac purchased for €6,000 at the breeze-up sales a year ago. Worth a check in the market on racecourse debut.
Has run well on two of his three starts so far most recently when third on soft-to-heavy ground over this trip at Limerick a month ago. Poorly drawn in this.
Beaten a head on debut and put a couple of disappointing efforts behind him when running well in first time blinkers (retained) at The Curragh (6f, heavy) last time.
Unraced gelded son of Showcasing out of an unraced dam. Wears a tongue tie and market support would be interesting on racecourse debut.
Placed on all three starts for Jessica Harrington including when runner-up over 1m at Dundalk in March. Gelded since and a leading contender on debut for a new yard.
Finished mid-division in a 7f contest at Limerick (soft-to-heavy) when making his debut a month ago. Wears a tongue tie for the first time in this.
Shaped as if she'd improve for the experience when finishing runner-up over this trip at Gowran Park (soft-to-heavy) on debut earlier this month. One for the shortlist for a stable in good form at present (5/25).
Promising 7L fourth at Gowran Park (1m, soft-to-heavy) on sole start at two and put a disappointing return behind her when 3L seventh back at Gowran Park last time.
Placed over 7f at Gowran Park (soft-to-heavy) on her most recent start. Work to do if she's to reverse form with Alanannda on that running.
