Winner of a 2m3f Limerick maiden hurdle on good ground in May getting off the mark at the fourth time of asking for leading yard. Beaten since but plenty in his favour here.
Course winner of a bumper over two years ago. Generally in decent form this season until a heavy defeat on handicap debut at the Galway festival earlier in the month. Worth a market check.
Won over two miles on the Flat in Britain for Philip Hide. three fair efforts for new yard this summer so far in maiden hurdles before a 17L defeat on handicap debut at the Galway festival earlier this month. Can be expected to go better here.
Won at Wexford in June but has looked in handicapper's grip in three starts since then and may struggle here.
Got off the mark over hurdles in a Killarney maiden last month at the 11th time of asking. Pulled up since and likely to find life difficult here.
Mare who has been consistent throughout the summer. Beaten a nose on her latest start at Sligo she should be a leading contender at this level.
Useful sort on the Flat for Amanda Perrett. Won on hurdling debut in a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle last month over 2m. Expected to improve from that run and stepping up in trip for leading connections.
Experienced hurdler of six starts but is yet to better his third of 16 in a 2m4f Down Royal handicap hurdle in June. Could be time to put his time over hurdles to good use.
