Eight-race maiden who has hit the frame on a couple of occasions including last time when a promising third of 18 behind Lost Treasure at the Curragh. One for the shortlist.
Consistent gelding by Vocalised who got her deserved change of luck when getting his head in front in a Roscommon 7f handicap earlier this month off a 4lb lower mark following a couple of near-misses recently. Entitled to make the shortlist.
Got back to winning ways in a 7½f Tipperary handicap last month off 3lb lower mark on good ground. Gives the impression there is more to come.
Winner over 7½f at Roscommon last month beating 12 rivals and Massa Lubrense ½L off a 3lb lower mark. Beaten on a couple of occasions since but still holds strong place claims.
Produced a Flat turf carrer best in nine starts when running Landline to a couple of lengths in a 7f Roscommon handicap earlier this month. Noted but needs to improve.
Snapped a long losing sequence when fending off Little Clarinet by a head at Bellewstown off a 2lb lower mark but made no impression on the leaders on the beach at Laytown recently. Dropped 2lb for that defeat and shortlisted here.
Struggling to get her head in front, but running consistently well in a number of displays since July but plenty of work to do in this company.
Comes here in fine form following a couple of near misses since June. Trainer has won this race twice in the last three years with Jealika and a market check is advised here.
One win in 32 starts while four runs this season had been underwhelming before a promising third of 15 beaten a little over 2L in a 1m Killarney handicap on good ground last month. Needs to improve once again.
Generally well held in a series of stuttering performances since April. Looks vulnerable in this company.
Disqualified after winning at Chelmsford in February (1m Class 7), but has a patchy career profile overall, punctuated by various lengthy absences from racing.
Seven-race maiden shaped well for a long way on recent return from 373 days off at Tipperary before finishing seventh of 15 at Gowran Park, though only beaten 2½L in a bunch finish when last seen in July.
Appeared to be heading the right way in two spins at Cork and Tipperary in May. Looks to be open to plenty of improvement if ready to roll off the break now.
Nothing of note in four dismal career starts before much promise on handicap debut over 6f at Dundalk last month. Unlikely to transfer that form to turf.
