Daughter of Getaway and a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Airlie Beach amongst others. Won on debut in a Tramore bumper in good style when last seen in August. Likely to be a warm order here.
Point-to-point winner and landed a Sligo bumper over this trip in August but well beaten since in two hurdle starts and possibly best watched here.
First time cheekpieces did not bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role in a Roscommon maiden hurdle earlier this month following a series of disappointing hurdle starts to date and more of the same looks likely here.
Plenty to like about her fifth of 11 beaten 12L in a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle in April and worth a market check from a yard that usually go well at this meeting.
Promising runs in two maiden hurdles since last month at Kilbeggan and at Tramore recently. Likable type and should be in the mix here.
Point-to-point winner but tailed off on rules debut in a Kilbeggan bumper in April. First time tongue-tie unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Daughter of Oscar out of a Salt Dome mare related to gallant winners Big Zeb, Oscar Time and Rock On Ruby. Well held on debut in a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle earlier this month and likely to struggle again.
Well beaten, never nearer in two starts to date and well below par form looking set to continue here but could be worth a market check with yard among the winners at this meeting previously.
Arcadio filly out of a Roselier mare pulled up on sole point-to-point start last month before finishing seventh of 15 well beaten in a Tramore maiden hurdle earlier this month. Hard to place any faith in.
Daughter of Beneficial out of a Galileo mare related to the likes of Cooldine and More Of That. Well held on two career maiden hurdle starts to date and best left here.
Well held in two career maiden hurdle spins to date including a 24L defeat last month at Tipperary. Others preferred.
By Beneficial out of a Deploy mare related to tenacious types Realt Dubh, More Of That and Eastlake. Appeared one pace on debut in a Tramore bumper earlier this month and easily resistible on hurdling bow.
