Progressive handicapper, she began this term with 1m heavy-ground Limerick success before finding Group 3 Guineas Trial too hot at Leopardstown in May. Held over 1m1f at Tipperary recently on sole start since. Plenty high in the ratings for now.
Winner over a mile at the Curragh this summer, ran well back there in valuable handicap already this month, needs peak performance to score from current rating it seems.
Experienced performer, won over C&D in 2016 on soft to heavy going off a mark of 87. Returned from a break with rock-solid effort over this trip at Galway last month and puts himself on the picture as such.
50/1 Limerick winner over 7f on heavy ground last season in just his second start. Moderate efforts since, including last month at the Curragh when 11th of 14 in race won by Full Moon.
Winner of a 7f contest at Sligo back in June and two sound runs since at Leopardstown and the Curragh, latest in the Irish Cambridgeshire over a mile this month. Considered in this calmer water.
Winner three times in previous six starts, including last time out over this trip at Roscommon. Did that well enough and should remain competitive despite latest ratings rise.
Winner over 5½f in a Navan handicap in April, well held from higher marks over this sort of trip since, needs to pull out a bit extra from somewhere.
Found stride last month, winning over this trip at Cork (good) off a mark of 74 and then running two strong races at the Curragh and Roscommon from 4lb higher in the weights. In good heart.
Lightly-raced Naas maiden winner over this trip, improved on second start in handicaps when 2L second to Thiswaycadeaux at Roscommon (7f, good) this month and entitled to build on that once more.
Raced exclusively at 7f this term winning a moderate race at Sligo before a decent third at Galway last month, well held dropped to 6f at the Curragh since and probably remains vulnerable.
Now 11-years-old, won at this meeting last year over 1m1f, taking advantage of declining mark for decisive success. Was turned out 24 hours later and disappointed under penalty, hasn't been spotted since.
