Won well over 1m in a Leopardstown handicap on Thursday. Carries a 6lb penalty here but is capable of another big run here.
Distance winner on the AW at Dundalk and beaten favourite there in April when finishing fourth of 11 beaten over 4L over 5f. Form on turf generally below par and best watched here.
Not disgraced in two recent spins on turf last month including a 3¾L defeat at Gowran Park over this trip. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.
Not beaten far in two most recent starts at Dundalk on the AW back in December and likely to need the run back on the track here.
Distance winner who was well beaten on return to the track when finishing 11th of 14 beaten 11½L in a Cork handicap last month. Hard to place any faith in.
75-rated handicapper when in the hands of Kevin Ryan but has shown little in two turf starts recently at Navan and Gowran Park.
67-rated Flat handicapper for trainer Jamie Osbourne but well beaten and never nearer in three dismal displays for new connections on the AW at Dundalk. Form doesn't warrant support for here.
Dundalk winner in October but that's her sole success in 24 starts. Well beaten and no impression on two recent starts on the turf at the Curragh and Gowran Park last month and others preferred.
Below par 57-rated handicapper for trainer-David Barron and was well beaten on first start for new connections in a Fairyhouse maiden on good to firm ground last month. Plenty more needed.
C&D winner of this race 12 months ago beating 14 rivals off the same mark but out of sorts recently and liable to find a couple stronger here.
Landed a 20/1 shock on return to the track for new connections when winning at Listowel earlier this month. Quickly turned out again and another bold show likely.
Form last winter/spring nothing to write home about and there was no evidence things were about to change in a Gowran Park handicap last month. Not hard to look elsewhere.
Well beaten in two spins around Gowran Park last month and first time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
C&D winner at this meeting in 2015 and fourth of 15 in this race 12 months ago off an 11lb higher mark but looks badly short of form recently and this looks a tough ask.
