€78,000 purchase as a foal being a sister to top class bumper/hurdle winner Darlan. Well held in two career starts to date and opposable here.
Struggled in six outings to date including twice in maiden hurdles since joining this yard. Others hold stronger claims but jockey booking noted.
Won Ballinrobe bumper on debut before largely well held in a couple of spins since. Won at the Galway festival on the Flat over 1m4f and is open to plenty of improvement on hurdling debut.
Well beaten in six poor bumper starts before a promising seventh of 17 beaten 5¾L in a Limerick 2m maiden hurdle on debut in July before a dismal outing at Cork last month. Form doesn't warrant support here.
Beaten before two out in a 2m Kilbeggan maiden hurdle last month when 45L adrift of the winner. Easily resistible on current form.
Well held in a Galway bumper when last seen under rules in October before failing to finish a point-to-point start in May.
Solid and consistent in four career bumper starts to date and has the form to make a bold bid on hurdling introduction.
Finished fourth of eight beaten 28L on sole hurdle start in a Gowran Park contest in September for Emmet Mullins before tailed off at Tramore when last seen in June.
Poor 50-rated handicapper on the Flat. Half-sister to Tidal Watch and Act Of Valour over jumps but unlikely to make an impression here.
Filly by Sans Frontieres out of a Luso mare. Half-sister to hurdle winner No Hassle Hoff. Watching brief on debut.
Filly by Scorpion out of a Surumu mare. Half-sister to Might Bite and Play The Ace. Tailed off 54L on debut in a Ballinrobe bumper last month.
