Winner of a Sligo handicap hurdle last month off a 6lb lower mark, a first win in seven starts over timber for the lightly raced veteran. Another bold show is likely.
Lightly-raced maiden, finished creditable seventh of 24 in novice hurdle at Cork over 2m at 100/1 before finishing fifth of 15 in a Tramore maiden last month. Tough ask.
Distance winner of a Killarney handicap hurdle over 12-months ago off a 7lb lower mark. Largely well held since and appears to need some relief from the handicapper.
Beaten a short-head ina Clonmel maiden hurdle over an extended 2m in May before being well held in a Downpatrick contest on handicap debut. Back from a break with first-time tongue-tie fitted.
Game sort who deservedly got off the mark at the 10th time of asking for connections over hurdles in a Kilbeggan 2m4f handicap last month off a 5lb lower mark. Plenty of room for improvement here.
Needs to replicate the form shown when landing a Tramore handicap hurdle over 2m5f on good ground in June off a 3lb lower mark. Place claims.
Lightly raced veteran who won a Punchestown handicap hurdle in October 2015 beaten 19L on return to the track over 12-months ago. Once again missing since and hard to make a case for on comeback from another break.
Beaten 72L when finishing 12th over 2m on good-to-firm ground here last time out. Stepping up markedly in distance on this occasion.
Efforts so far over timber are decidedly underwhelming in a number of maiden hurdle starts before a heavy defeat on handicap debut in a Tramore 2m contest last month. Best watched up in trip.
Four-race maiden over hurdles and not seen since pulling up at Navan in January. Looks up against here on return.
Has failed to produce anything of note in six handicap hurdles to date and easily passed over here.
Poor form in a series of dismal performances over hurdles since the turn of the year. First time cheekpieces less likely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.
Has produced a couple of encouraging runs when returning to the track in May. Missing again since June and hard to make a case for here.
Very few positive signs in five runs over flights to date, including a couple of crushing handicap defeats. Plenty to prove here.
