Course win came in March over 6f off a 2lb higher weight. Good form round here puts him in the mix.
Comes here on a hat-trick of wins following a couple of solid displays at Fairyhouse and Leopardstown. Course form a slight concern but is in good shape right now.
Genuine and tough sort who won a Limerick handicap last month off a 5lb lower mark. Winner here over 1m in May beating 13 rivals as the 5/1 favourite. One to consider.
Modest 72-rated maiden for trainer-John Gosden. Well held when last seen in April and possibly vulnerable in this company on debut for new connections.
Won a Roscommon maiden claimer on good ground over this trip last month. Second of 14 beaten a nose when last seen here in May over 1m. Likely sort on paper.
Third of 12 beaten 1½L over C&D in January off a 2lb higher mark. Beaten again since but cannot be ruled out with conditions to suit.
Has finished in the places on his last two starts at Fairyhouse and Bellewstown but remains a five-race maiden for connections. Likable type and should be in the mix.
