Winner of two of her last four starts but now races off a 9lb higher mark than the first of those wins last month. Entitled to make the shortlist.
Comes here on a hat-trick of wins following two wins at Fairyhouse and Carlisle last month. Rates a leading contender.
Distance winner who has recently been short of luck finishing runner-up in four of his last five starts. Has conditions to suit here and looks a key player.
Distance winner of a Dundalk maiden back in November on the AW. Second first run for a while at Roscommon last month and open to plenty of improvement here.
Inconsistent distance winner who bounced back to form following a number of disappointing starts over the summer when finishing 2L behind the winner at Roscommon recently.
C&D winner who won a 1m Cork handicap on heavy ground when last seen in May. One to consider in this grade.
Gallant winner of a Roscommon 7½f handicap on soft ground off a 2lb lower mark last month. Dangerous if building on last appearance.
Won twice over 7f for Richard Hannon but not recaptured that form for current yard. Well beaten at the Curragh last time and dropped a further 5lb here.
Distance winner of a Cork handicap in April before blowing the start but going on to lead after a furlong in a 23-runner handicap at the Curragh when last seen in May. Could go well at a price.
Running solid races from higher marks than this last summer, poor win-record (2-27) however and lost form towards the end of season. Second of 15 beaten a neck on return to action in a Bellewstown 1m handicap last month. C&D winner needs respect.
C&D winner dropped 2lb for a spin on the beach at Laytown recently when finishing last of 10. Still 6lb higher than his last winning mark and may struggle here.
Not disgraced in a couple of maiden hurdles to date though did finish down the field on each occasion and looking a little one paced in both contests. One from ten on the Flat and hard to fancy.
Veteran who is a course winner that has also won over the trip. Last of 11 beaten 34L on first run for 12-months here on Wednesday.
Not beaten far in a number of promising runs over the summer. Consistent sort who ought to go well again.
