Landed a 12/1 shock in a Roscommon handicap hurdle earlier this month over this trip getting off the mark at the fifth time of asking off a 6lb lower mark. Another bold show looks likely.
Ran well to finish third of 13 beaten 2L in a Bellewstown handicap hurdle earlier this month when possibly flattered by the finishing position. Appears to go better on softer ground and others preferred.
C&D winner here last month when beating 13 rivals ½L on good ground off a 6lb lower mark. The mare has been beaten since but boasts each way claims in this company.
Maiden after eight hurdle starts and has been well down the field on her last two starts on good ground. May struggle on the surface once again.
102-rated handicap hurdler two years ago for trainer Suzy Smith and has generally been kept to point-to-point and chase starts for current yard. Worth a market check.
Not disgraced in a number of handicap hurdles since the turn of the year including finishing second of 10 over C&D in April. First-time cheekpieces may well assist the seven-year-old here.
Has disappointed connections since returning to this isle in four below-par starts including on return from a break when well held on Sunday at Sligo.
Seven race maiden including four defeats over hurdles and first time blinkers doubtful to bring about the required amount of progress needed to play a role here.
Has failed to finish her last two starts including being pulled up on first start for new connections earlier this month at Tipperary. Hard to fancy.
