Distance winner whose losing run dates back to August 2016 when trained in France. Well held in two starts for current connections and may struggle here.
Modest 63-rated Flat handicapper for trainer Paul Midgley. Carries the hopes of new connections and best watched today in first-time blinkers on stable debut.
Showed promise on his seasonal debut but three subsequent starts have been modest. Now has a bit to prove.
Distance winner on the AW at Dundalk in November. Looks to carry better form on that surface and others hold stronger profiles.
Solid and consistent in three starts since May including a ½L defeat in a Naas handicap last month. Improvement needed but not discounted.
Does most of his running now on the AW at Dundalk. Won his penultimate start on turf in a Leopardstown handicap over this trip off a 9lb higher mark. Possibilities if reclaiming form on grass.
Placed five times on the bounce earlier in the year, but has been below his best on last four starts. Worth a market check.
Winner of a Gowran Park handicap over 7f in May off a 6lb lower mark. Beaten since but acts on the ground and is entitled to make the shortlist here.
Game AW performer but well beaten on first two career starts on turf. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Well beaten over 1m last time out in a Cork handicap last month. Acts on the ground and the return to this trip could but but hard to fancy on recent starts.
C&D winner here in June last year off a 10lb higher mark before finishing 11th of 18 in this contest 12 months ago. Signs of a return to form recently and worth a market check.
Possibly needed the run on the AW at Dundalk in April on her return to the track following a promising 2017 campaign. 12th of 18 in this contest 12-months ago but has each way claims on return to turf.
Four gallant displays in June not beaten further than 5L deserves a change of luck. Looks a progressive type and shortlisted here.
