Won twice already this season and ran well to finish 7L second over 2m5f at Galway (yielding-to-soft) earlier this month. One for the shortlist in this contest.
Sligo novice hurdle winner over 2m4f on good ground last month. Pulled up over fences subsequently and of interest back over smaller obstacles.
Won and placed over fences in France but struggled when beaten 107L on debut for this yard at Cork (2m4f, good) last month. Blinkers worn successfully in France return dropping in grade.
Dual winner here including over C&D on good ground 12 months ago. Likely to have improved for last months seasonal debut and is an interesting runner on this occasion.
Narrowly beaten in a handicap chase over 2m4f at Kilbeggan (yielding-to-soft) in April. Reverts to hurdles having disappointed at Limerick (good) the following month.
Finished runner-up over C&D on good ground back in May. Pulled up at Tramore (2m5f, good) subsequently however and is returning from a break.
Off the mark at the first time of asking in handicaps when winning by 14L over 2m6f on good ground here a month ago. Raised 14lb for that success and remains open to improvement.
24 race maiden ran well to finish runner-up in a maiden hurdle over 2m6f on good ground here a month ago. Often runs well at this venue.
Beaten 19L when finishing second of three at Killarney (2m4f, good) in a conditions hurdle last month. Making her handicap debut on this occasion.
Placed over 2m3f on good ground here in June. Pulled up upped to 3m at Bellewstown (good-to-firm) subsequently and drop back in trip should suit.
Ran well in defeat the last twice including when 9L fourth at Wexford (2m4f, good) on her penultimate start. Worth a check in the market.
Signs of ability in three hurdles starts in the spring. Beaten 26L over 2m3f here last time out and making her handicap debut following a break.
