Dual winner over C&D most recent when last seen in October on yielding ground. Enters calculations despite 6lb higher mark.
Course winner that has also won over the trip. Yard have a strong record at this meeting in recent years but the eight-year-old tend to struggle on the ground.
Stable have a 57% win and place strike rate at this meeting in the last four years from 14 runners but this gelding may struggle in the conditions here in first-time tongue-tie.
Consistent dual performer who has been winning over fences and on the flat at Dundalk of late but her 108L defeat when tailed off in a Wexford handicap hurdle last month is a major concern.
Modest 112-rated chaser is still only one win from 12 over timber but acts on the ground and boasts course and distance positives here.
Has produced a bunch of inadequate performances since April including two heavy handicap hurdle defeats and easily opposable on recent form.
Winner of a 2m3½f chase here in May and put in a gallant performance last time out in a Kilbeggan chase earlier this month. Looks a progressive type and shortlisted here.
A win from six starts here and beaten favourite earlier this month in a Tramore handicap hurdle over 2m5f finishing third of 11 beaten 4L on good ground and could be of interest in this company.
Pleasing second of 11 beaten a neck in a Tramore maiden hurdle earlier this month but 2lb rise unlikely to help in this contest.
Generally well held in two starts this term and possibly a better chaser than the gelding is a hurdler and opposable on recent form.
Has disappointed connections in a couple of drab efforts over hurdle at Punchestown and in a Tramore maiden hurdle earlier this month. Plenty to prove at present.
10-race maiden hurdler who has not been disgraced or beaten far in three starts since April but really needs a break from the handicapper.
