Promising display in June when finishing not far behind the winners in two starts but appears to weaken on the good to soft ground.
Beaten favourite last time out in a Bellewstown handicap over 1m when second of 10 beaten ½L following a ¾L defeat at Sligo over this trip last month. Claims back at 7f.
Failed to build on a couple of promising runs at Leopardstown recently when possibly finding the ground with too much give at Sligo last month. More expected back on this surface.
Appeared to improve for the step up to 1m at Bellewstown earlier this month beaten 3½L behind Passing Trade. Worth a market check with the yard in fine form.
Nothing of note in three dismal displays to date including a 10½L defeat at Limerick over 1m last month. Plenty to prove at present.
Improved over this trip last time out in a Naas handicap finishing fourth of eight on good to form ground last month. Market likely to be the best guide.
Not beaten far in his last two starts in June both at Leopardstown. Looks a progressive type and shortlisted here.
Seven-race maiden with three of those defeats coming on turf the latest of which came at Naas last month. First-time cheekpieces may assist.
Will have disappointed in a number of desolate displays since May. Hard to fancy on latest evidence and other preferred.
