Distance winner of a Dundalk handicap on the AW two years ago. best run this season came at Navan over 1m2f in July. May struggle here.
Failed to build on a gallant run at the Galway festival when finishing 19th of 22 beaten 38L at the Curragh last month. Worth a market check if back to his previous best.
Winner of one of his seven previous starts and not seen since October last year. Formerly with Joseph O'Brien and Karl Burke, best watched on stable debut.
Sole win on the Flat came in a Killarney handicap over 12-months ago off a 12lb higher mark. Out of form recently and hard to fancy.
Running consistently without winning this season and the handicapper has been very slow to cut him some slack as a result. Place claims.
Beaten on first three starts for Aidan O'Brien before a 12L defeat at Ballinrobe for new connections last month. Promising run latest with the penny beginning to drop. Open to more improvement here.
Will have disappointed connections having not got her head in front in nine career starts to date but yard are back among the winners and boasts strong claims here in first-time blinkers.
Winner of a Roscommon 1m4f handicap on good ground earlier this month off a 4lb lower mark. Increasingly good form over this trip and a leading player here.
Beaten favourite when finishing fifth of 10 beaten 11L in a Tramore rated race last month. Holds strong place claims.
Distance winner of a Tramore maiden on just his third start last month. Appears to have been given a reasonable mark to work from and looks an interesting runner.
Nothing of note towards the end of last season and well beaten on return to the track in June and following another break at Roscommon earlier this month. Others look open to more improvement.
Distance winner of a Sligo handicap in May before a 22L defeat on return to action at the Curragh last month. Others look more convincing at this level.
First Reserve: Badly hampered and unseated rider when well eaten a week ago at Down Royal. Needs to improve to have a say here.
Third Reserve: Distance winner who was a disappointing beaten favourite in a Roscommon 1m4f handicap last month before another dismal display at Naas earlier this month. Impossible to recommend.
