Filly by Dandy Man out of a Grand Lodge mare related to multiple winners Peniaphobia and Bint Dandy. Nothing of note in two starts to date and easily dismissed.
Unplaced on each of her seven starts well held on each occasion and requires a chunk of improvement to land a blow here.
Gelded son of Alternation out of a Unbridled's Song mare. Plenty of USA progeny in the line including Arrogate but best watched on debut.
Lightly-raced maiden, improved in first-time visor when second of 20 in a maiden at Leopardstown last month and looks interesting on handicap debut.
Arakan colt, dam won over this trip and also had plenty stamina on her side a winning hurdler. Last of 13 beaten 36L on debut and possibly needs more than first-time hood to assist on handicap debut.
Comes here following two encouraging starts at Navan over 5½f and last time out in a Fairyhouse 6f maiden. Market could be informative here.
First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here following three dismal career displays to date.
Well held and never nearer in two career starts to date last month and it is hard to see him making any significant impact in this company.
Has looked laboured and out of sorts in three career starts on the AW at Dundalk including last time out well beaten 24L when last seen in January. Hard to construct much of a case here.
Well bred Galileo filly out of a Danhill mare related to Frankel, Nathaniel, Dylan Thomas and Rock Of Gibraltar. Expected to be well prepped for this and could be a warm order here.
Daughter of Footstepsinthesand out of a useful sprinter but has made no impression in two career starts on the AW at Dundalk this term. Plenty to prove in this contest.
Filly by Redoute's Choice out of a Galileo mare related to multiple Australian Group 1 winner Lankan Rupee and market likely to reveal expectations here.on debut.
Le Cadre Noir filly out of a Midhish mare who has been well held on two career starts to date showing no encouragement on each occasion.
Arcano filly out of a Hard Spun mare related to multiple winners Arcanada, Thello and Bint Arcano. Will possibly need the experience on debut here.
