Victorious twice in autumn 2016 and signs that further success may not be far away when finishing fifth over 1m at Gowran Park (soft-to-heavy) earlier this month.
Well held on four outings at Dundalk since joining this yard. Handicap mark is falling as a result and market support would be interesting in this contest.
Dual winner at Dundalk last November but well held there the last twice and probably best watched on her return to turf.
Fair fifth at Navan (yielding-to-soft) on seasonal debut last month but struggled at Cork (soft-to-heavy) subsequently and others make more appeal.
Successful over 7f at Naas (yielding) in June last year but disappointing since. Well handicapped as a result and races off a mark 6lb lower than for that Naas victory.
Ended last season with a victory over 5f at Naas (soft) and has been in good form this time around winning over an extended 6f at Cork (soft-to-heavy) off a mark of 63 last time out. Races off a 7lb higher mark here.
Put a number of disappointing efforts behind him when finishing runner-up dropping to this trip in a heavy ground 30 runner contest at The Curragh last time out. Repeat of that should see him figure in the finish.
Heavy ground maiden winner over 6f at Fairyhouse in October and placed twice in handicap company since including when third at The Curragh (7f, heavy) last time. Wears a visor for the first time.
Twice a hurdle winner last year but held over 1m4f and 1m6f on the Flat subsequently. Dropping in trip on return from ten months off the track and on debut for a new stable.
Sole success came on the AW and finished behind a few of these at The Curragh (7f, heavy) on seasonal and stable debut last time. Cheekpieces tried for the first time.
Struggled in three starts in maiden company over further. Tongue tie tried tackling this distance for the first time on handicap debut.
Placed over 7f at Laytown last September and some fair efforts since. Worth a check in the market from 1lb out of the weights racing off a mark 8lb lower than for his latest success with a top jockey booked to ride.
Successful twice in sprints last autumn but below par end to the season and well held over 5f at The Curragh (heavy) on recent return. Races from out of the handicap in this.
