Still a maiden after ten starts and form is pretty weak. Likely to find this pretty tough going and readily opposed.
Tailed off on all three efforts so far this summer. Capable of better but up against it once again in this field.
Returned from running over hurdles to go close in a handicap at Killarney three weeks ago. Sets a pretty clear standard in here and should be pretty tough to beat for powerful yard that won this last year.
Only two starts so far in 2018 and both have resulted in poor displays over fences/hurdles. Belated flat debut here and is likely to be vulnerable in here.
Well held in a couple of bumpers and in maiden at Dundalk when last seen in November. Needs much more on return from a break to be involved here.
Not been seen since pulled up in a maiden hurdle at Cork back in January 2017. Clearly had issues since and hard to envisage being able to be competitive off such a lay-off.
Improved with each start in bumpers culminating with a victory at Tramore last month. Not beaten all that far in a flat maiden at Gowran Park on the back of that and is entitled to respect here.
Form has tailed off of late and has plenty to find in form terms with the best of these. Minor role likely.
One win from 31 starts and is lowly rated. Up against it in here against some much better rivals and likely to find this tough going.
