C&D winner in May 2017 off a 6lb lower mark. Still racing competitively placing on his last three starts. Deserves a change of luck.
Winner over C&D last time out when last seen in October and comes here on a hat-trick. Capable of another bold bid off his new mark on seasonal debut.
Distance winner of a Thurles handicap hurdle in November. Winner on the Flat recently but appears to be struggling over hurdles of late.
Second of 10 beaten 2½L in a Tramore handicap hurdle over this trip in August last year is his best performance to date but is liable to find a couple stronger here.
Distance winner who was well held when stepping up in trip last month at Clonmel. Will appreciate the drop to this trip and worth a market check.
Well beaten on the Flat recently but has been fairly consistent in a couple of hurdle spins since last month. Acts on the ground and has an interesting jockey booked.
C&D winner who was beaten favourite last time out in a Clonmel handicap hurdle earlier this month. Still on an attractive mark.
Nothing to show in three handicap hurdle starts to date including tipping up last time out at Clonmel earlier this month. Reduced mark is a positive but others preferred in this contest.
Winner of one of her six hurdle starts which came at Tramore in April 2017 as an odds-on favourite. Generally well beaten since and opposable on recent form.
C&D winner who will possibly improve on her fifth of 18 on seasonal debut in a Clonmel handicap hurdle last month. Looks a progressive type and shortlisted here.
Plenty to like about his second of 15 at Ballinrobe recently when finding no extra in the closing stages and needs to eek out a little more here.
Failed to build on a decent run at Tramore when finishing eighth of 17 beaten 57L in a Clonmel handicap hurdle earlier this month. Plenty in his favour and has each way claims in this grade.
German Flat winner but tailed off in three career hurdles starts to date including a 38L defeat here earlier this month. Very little to be positive about in this contest.
Kept on in to third without troubling the leaders when finishing third of 12 earlier this month in a Tramore handicap hurdle over this trip. Possible improvement and place claims here.
