Well beaten in two starts last month and generally struggles on good ground. Could be of interest running now off a 1lb lower mark than last winning rating.
Distance winner and a 103-rated handicapper in his pomp for trainer-David Marnane. Out of sorts recently and this is a tough ask.
Gained her first win in over five years at Hamilton three starts back and still well-handicapped on old form. Entitled to make the shortlist here.
Game winner of handicaps at Gowran Park and Limerick last season both over similar distance well beaten but not disgrace on last two starts at Killarney and at Leopardstown earlier this month. Could be dangerous off current mark.
Beaten favourite last month in a Gowran Park handicap over 7f when finishing a disappointing 11th of 15 beaten 7¼L. Clearly better than that run and worthy of consideration here.
Distance winner of a Tipperary handicap last month of a 13lb lower mark. Gallant second of 15 next time at Gowran Park and plenty to like about this mare in current form.
Failed to build on an encouraging third of 23 beaten 1L at Navan on seasonal debut with two disappointing runs at Curragh and Navan recently. Others preferred.
Distance winner on the AW at Dundalk in April and ran well to hold on to finish third of 15 over a similar trip in a Gowran Park handicap last month. Visor removed but likely to run well once again.
Popular veteran winner of four of his 64 turf starts but is clearly regressing of late and now race 9lb below last winning mark.
Promising third of 13 beaten 1¾L on the AW at Dundalk when last seen in October. Worth a market check on first start for connections.
Well beaten over shorter distances recently and has struggled previously over 7f. Liable to find a couple stronger in this event.
Without a win in eight starts on turf and difficult to fancy over this trip and may need a little cut in the ground.
Patchy form so far since his last win which came on the beach at Laytown in 2016 in a claimer ending a long losing run. Reduced mark a positive but others preferred.
Beaten 14L on handicap debut at Clonmel last month on first start for new connections. Looks a tough ask.
