Acts on the ground but has finished down the field in two seasonal starts at Navan and Tipperary recently. Needs to improve significantly.
Not beaten far and not disgraced in a number of run on the AW at Dundalk but turf form leaves a lot to be desired. Difficult to see if first-time blinkers improve performance here.
Headed inside final 100 yards in a 7f handicap last month when second of 11 beaten ¾L by the likable Stormy Tale. Will need to maintain improvement here.
Beaten when hampered at Gowran Park last month when eighth of 15 but the manner of previous turf start at Navan makes her hard to fancy here.
Plenty to like about her third of 16 beaten 3L in a Tipperary handicap last month but overall form on the ground makes here a difficult proposition in this contest.
Distance winner of a Listowel handicap in September 2016 off an 8lb higher mark. Has roughly struggled since on the AW and on turf. Others preferred.
Nothing of note in a number of below-par efforts since the turn of the year on the AW at Dundalk and on turf more recently at Roscommon. Looks a tall order on form shown.
Hints of promise recently for the 14-race maiden at Killarney and Listowel earlier this month but is always susceptible to one or two stronger rivals.
Appeared to improve for the drop in trip when fifth of 16 beaten 5L in a Tipperary handicap last month but will need to eek out a bit more here.
Well held and down the field in previous starts over this trip and his efforts on the ground doesn't make for pleasant reading. Plenty to prove.
14-race maiden on turf and nothing of note when well beaten on his last seven starts. May find this another tough assignment.
Second Reserve: Slight promise in a Limerick maiden in April but general form leaves a bit to be desired. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.
