Trained in Ireland and won at Ballinrobe in heavy ground in April and probably needed the run last month on first start since. Not here just for the fresh air and, given connections, has to be seriously considered.
Shown nothing in a bumper and one hurdle so far, so despite representing a good hard looks to face a very stiff task here.
Mid-division finish on only start to date at Chepstow in February and has potential to do better. Hails from a good yard that's had a few winners of late and any market interest would be interesting.
Three wins on the Flat in Germany and has made a fair start for new connections here finishing second on debut at Newton Abbot then winning well at Worcester last time. Sure to be thereabouts once again.
Maiden who led until joined and fell 2 out at Worcester in May then failed to stay over nearly three miles last time out. Drop back in trip should help and has place prospects in at her best.
Modest form in four bumpers so far, last time making debut for new connections when fourth at Stratford. Hurdle bow now and more needed.
Kept on over shorter trip here last time and seemed improved following a wind operation. Possibilities of further progression at this trip but another step forward is required.
Shown nothing between the flags and in bumpers so far and looks to face a near impossible task at this level on hurdles bow.
