Winner of two races and runner-up in a further five including a valuable prize last time. Blinkers on here but drop back to 6f is not guaranteed to help.
Winner of a 6f novice event at Wolverhampton (AW) in December and followed with a fine race in Naas Listed event (5½f, good to yielding). Eased in a valuable race last month when conditions were heavy and has a chance to bounce back.
All out to open her account at Fairyhouse and the runner-up has franked the form. Blinkers clearly helped and need to have a similar effect again.
Has only gone up 3lb for finishing amongst higher rated horses over 7f here two weeks ago. Equally effective over 6f and cannot be dismissed on that form.
Better last time in cheekpieces and on quicker ground. Yet to prove his effectiveness at this trip, but on a handy mark if he does.
Shock Dundalk winner in September who has done little since. Blinkers tried this time and others have stronger claims.
Clearly the pick of the weights given his latest display which means he goes up 3lb next time. However, he is a difficult ride who needs things to his way and he cannot be relied upon to step up this time.
