Jeremy gelding out of a Topanoora mare related to Our Connor and Jers Girl. Well held in a couple of starts to date and hard to fancy on that form.
Alkaadhem gelding out of a Mister Lord mare. Half-brother to game sorts A Hare Breath and The Organist. Heavy defeat in two a couple of bumper starts to date and looks vulnerable here.
Shantou gelding out of a Bob Back mare. Half-brother to Death Duty, Shantou Village and Ballynagour. Will look to improve on his fifth of six at Limerick in April.
Sans Frontieres gelding is a half-brother to winning pointer Western Honour. Can be expected to improve on debut run at the Punchestown festival under top bumper pilot.
Bolger-bred gelding out of a Princely Heir mare. Promising fourth of 18 on debut in a Roscommon 2m½f bumper last month. Place claims.
Cost €3,000 as a three-year-old the gelding by Morozov out of a Supreme Leader mare is best watched on debut run.
Gelding by Papal Bull out of a City Honours mare. Half-brother to Ronan McNally's multiple winner The Jam Man. Looks a long-term prospect.
Sixth of 11 beaten over 15L on debut at Killarney in July. May find it tough going here in this grade.
Tongue-tie already fitted on debut for the Oscar gelding out of a Solid Illusion mare. Market possibly best guide here with eye-catching jockey booking.
Sixties Icon gelding half-brother to Prix de L'arc de Triomphe winner Marienbard. Market likely to reveal expectations on debut.
Dylan Thomas gelding bought for €100,000 at the sales last year. Well beaten in a couple of bumpers since April - despite finishing position latest - and likely to struggle once again here.
Vinnie Roe filly is a half-sister to fair 2m6f hurdle winner Citizen Al. Never a factor in a couple of career bumper starts to date and unlikely to improve in this contest.
Daughter of Stowaway tailed off on bumper debut at Sligo over 2m2f last month. May find it tough going once again.
Oscar filly out of a Gildoran mare. Half-sister to to the likes of Big Zeb and Rock On Ruby. Watching brief on debut.
Unraced filly by Thousand Words out of a Norwich mare. Dam won three of her 29 hurdles starts. Not one to consider here on debut.
Kalanisi filly purchased for €3,200 at the sales as a foal. Full-sister to dual winner Mr Steadfast. Well held in three bumper starts to date and impossible to make a case for.
First Reserve: Cost €7,200 as a three-year-old. By Curtain Time out of a Executive Perk mare and best watched here.
