Running well in defeat since returning this season including when 3L fourth over 1m4f at The Curragh (good-to-firm) last time. Tongue tie worn for the first time that day is retained.
Beaten 1L when finishing third at The Curragh (1m4f, good-to-firm) on his penultimate outing. Well held subsequently but not written off just yet.
Finished runner-up in a maiden hurdle at Worcester (2m, good) recently. Returning to this sphere for the first time since finishing fourth over an extended 1m3f at Limerick (good) in June.
Well beaten at Ballinrobe (yielding) over an extended 1m5f on his return from a short break. Probably best watched at present.
Ran well to finish 4L third over 1m3f at Killarney (good) on his most recent Flat outing. Well beaten over hurdles subsequently but interesting back in this sphere.
Well held in a competitive 1m4f handicap at Galway (yielding-to-soft) last week. Represents a leading jumps yard but probably best watched on this occasion.
Good fourth in a 1m2f handicap at Navan (good-to-firm) in June. Disappointing in two subsequent outings including over 1m4f next time.
Not beaten far in two starts over 1m7f at Leopardstown since returning from a short break. Drop in distance not certain to suit.
Just touched off in a 1m4f handicap at Dundalk a month ago. Races off a 1lb higher mark here and a repeat of that effort should see him play a hand in the finish.
Maiden after nine starts and well held over an extended 1m3f at Limerick (good-to-firm) in June. Others hold stronger claims on her return from a break.
Couple of decent efforts on soft-to-heavy ground over hurdles in the spring. Well beaten over 3m in that sphere on debut for this yard last month and wears blinkers for the first time on his return to the Flat.
Struggled in three starts in maiden races for previous stable in 2016. Well beaten on handicap debut for this yard in May last year and returning from over a year off the track.
