Finished a good third to an improving rival over 1m4f at Roscommon (soft) last time out. Races off the same mark here and is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Won once and placed twice from four starts over hurdles for this yard last summer. Well held in first time blinkers (retained) in that sphere in November and returns to the Flat for this.
Maiden winner on heavy ground over 1m2f at Roscommon last August but struggled since including on seasonal debut recently.
Twice a winner over hurdles but pulled up at Killarney recently. Races off a mark 6lb lower than when finishing fourth over 2m2f at Down Royal (soft-to-heavy) last September. Cheekpieces tried for the first time.
Placed over 1m4f on soft ground at Naas last November. Well beaten over hurdles subsequently and making his handicap and seasonal debut in this.
Good fourth in a 1m4f handicap at Roscommon (soft) earlier this month. Races off a 1lb lower mark here and he is likely to run well once more.
Victorious over an extended 1m4f at Newcastle last November. Struggled on return to turf at Cork (1m2f, heavy) last time however and well beaten over hurdles subsequently.
Twice a winner last year and put in her best effort on the Flat this year when finishing fourth in a claimer at Clonmel (1m2f, heavy) last time out.
Winner of his penultimate outing at Clonmel (1m2f, heavy) earlier this month. Fair effort over this trip subsequently and interesting to see how he fares on this occasion.
Successful on good ground over this distance in July last year and put in his best effort in two subsequent starts when finishing third at Newcastle in December. Making his seasonal debut.
Struggled in three starts on the Flat this year. handicap mark is falling as a result but she is probably best watched at present.
Victorious on yielding ground over 1m at Naas last October. Held twice since and stepping up markedly in trip having finished sixth over 1m at Killarney (soft) recently.
Unplaced in all 12 starts so far and probably best watched on his first outing on the Flat since December.
Placed once from three starts on turf. Struggled over 1m4f at Dundalk in December and others make more appeal racing from out of the handicap on her return from a break.
