Finished runner-up to Aared in a competitive 1m2f contest at the Curragh (good to firm) on her penultimate outing. Disappointing both starts since however and needs to bounce back.
Winner of a maiden in France last summer for Andre Fabre, that came over a sprinting trip. First start for new yard and stamina to be proven. Market check needed.
C&D maiden winner earlier in the season, seems to like it around here and went well again last time in an auction race. Should be in the mix.
Filly just got up on the line to score over a mile here last month, stays this far and entitled to run well again raised 3lb.
Running consistently without winning this season and the handicapper has been very slow to cut him some slack as a result. Likely to run his race but also not surprising if he finds a few too good in the process.
Victorious on the AW at Dundalk over 7f last September but well beaten in a valuable contest at Naas (7f, soft) on her only subsequent outing last term. Well beaten over a mile on reappearance at Leopardstown, up in trip once more.
Gained a second career success at Tipperary on heavy ground in May. Held her form reasonably well since then though does appear as if the handicapper has control of ambitions for the moment.
Dundalk maiden winner over 7f last year, showed best of this year's form last month here over a mile on good to yielding ground. Likely player if building on that effort upped in trip and having gained 2lb relief since.
Improving with racing and duly off the mark seventh time of asking when narrowly getting verdict in 1m Bellewstown handicap last month. Ran a cracking since in Galway Festival handicap and respected up another 2lb tonight.
