Has been left toiling in a number of laboured runs including two dismal efforts since May under both codes. Each way claims at best.
Plenty to like about his Leopardstown third of 11 beaten 4L on stable debut last month and should make his presence felt here.
Won, when well supported winning a Tipperary handicap on good to firm over 1m4½f last month finishing a head in front of Easy Boy off a 3lb lower mark. Another bold show likely.
Losing run extends to 20 starts on both the AW and turf but still finds himself 4lb higher than last winning mark. Tough ask and others preferred.
Hurdling recently on his first start since September without a win on turf on the level but plenty of progress possible and not dismissed.
12-race maiden on the Flat and well beaten on four dismal displays when with trainer Willie McCreery. Never nearer on stable debut here last month but not discounted in this company.
Poor form in a series of dismal performances in her career including a heavy defeat at Leopardstown last month on first start for new stable. Looks up against it here.
Landed a shock in a Ballinrobe hurdle in May winning at 50/1 before a disappointing effort at Leopardstown last month when ninth of 11 as beaten favourite. Work to do here but not discounted.
Slight improvement on recent starts when finishing sixth of 10 beaten 3½L at Sligo before a fourth of 14 at Bellewstown last month but will need to improve significantly to land a blow here.
