Winner at Tramore over hurdles in June but two lesser efforts since then and hard to know what to expect here still 3lb higher than last win.
112-rated chaser who has been running well over the larger obstacles of late. Without a win from four starts over hurdles and difficult to see any improvement here.
Won here on her latest visit when landing a handicap hurdle over 3m on good ground earlier this month winning her third race over timber. Another bold show likely despite 7lb rise.
Sole success in 19 starts came in a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle on good ground in September 2016. Point-to-point winner recently but really needs to up his game here.
Winner of a point-to-point in May before being well held in a Tipperary maiden hurdle earlier this month over 2m4f on good ground. Market likely to be the best guide here.
27-race maiden, 15 of them over hurdles. In capable hands but will need to raise overall performance to play a role here.
Slight promise in a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle last month finishing sixth of 14 beaten 12L before returning to disappoint in a Wexford contest earlier this month. Hard to fancy on latest evidence.
Improved on previous starts when meeting trouble in running to eventually finish third of 12 beaten 4½L here over 3m earlier this month. Needs to improve again but shortlisted.
Backed in to 7/2f from an opening show of 8/1 in a Down Royal handicap hurdle last month eventually finishing second of 16 beaten 3¾L over 2m4f following a series of poor displays since March. One to note in the market.
Got off the mark on the ninth time of asking over hurdles last month in a Kilbeggan handicap holding on well in the closing stages to win by ¾L. Another bold show looks on the cards.
Tailed off on all four starts and showed little ability for previous connections. Watching brief for now on stable debut.
