Has won two of her four starts this season and the manner of her win at Bellewstown (1m) last month was impressive; failed by a long way to match that form at Gowran last time, though, and visor reached for back in trip now.
Sole success came on debut at the Curragh last May. Couple of decent efforts of late, keeping on again when fourth over 7f here last time. Not dismissed, although drop to 6f not an obvious move.
Maiden winner at Navan over an extended 5f on seasonal debut in May, and had Gasta behind when runner-up on handicap bow over 7f here last time. Should confirm that form, and one to bear in mind.
Easy winner of a 7f handicap at Gowran in June, but raised 12lb for that and struggled next time. Not disgraced since, and now getting some respite from handicapper, so can't be ruled out.
Has twice run respectably since finishing second in a C&D handicap in June, and now 4lb lower. Handicapped to play a part, and should go well with conditions to suit.
Well held in handicaps between 5f and 1m for James Nash earlier in the campaign, but shaped better on debut for new yard at the Curragh on Monday, and current mark can be exploited.
