Smart performer for William Haggas, appeared to have lost way having moved to this yard but bounced back in spectacular fashion as winner of valuable 1m4f Leopardstown handicap when last seen on the Flat in October. Place claims.
Comes here on a hat-trick following sucess at the Galway festival and on handicap debut in a 1m4f Bellewstown contest last month. Leading player.
Second to Wicklow Brave at Killarney in July but has produced a couple of laboured displays since and may find this a tough assignment.
Distance winner of a Tipperary contest on two years ago off a 15lb lower mark when with Willie McCreery. Vast improvement needed to figure here following a couple of below-par performances last month.
Cape Cross filly who is a half-sister to three winners over middle-distances. Off the mark at the second attempt in a 1m3f Killarney maiden last month and would not have to progress much on that performance to land a blow here.
Solid and consistent in a number of starts since June and got the change of luck the colt so richly deserved when landing a Killarney 1m6f handicap last month off a 2lb lower mark. Another bold show looks likely.
Strong claims if the two quick spins at the Galway festival have not taken their toll. Consistent sort who looks like improvement is not far away.
Hurdling recently well beaten on each occasion. Last win on the Flat came 12-months ago off a 7lb lower mark so can be expected to struggle here in current form.
Eye-catching third of seven beaten a little over 5L on handicap debut at Sligo last month. Will need to step up here but worth a market check.
