Generally well held in three appearances this season - despite finishing positions - and others look to be progressing at a quicker rate.
Winner of a Bellewstown 2m4f handicap hurdle off a 10lb lower mark in July but has been largely well held in a couple of subsequent starts since. Plenty to find on recent offerings.
Solid and consistent in a number of starts since July including finishing runner-up in a Sligo handicap hurdle last month. Shapes like step up in trip may suit.
Losing run over hurdles now totals six and based on her performance here on Sunday liable to find one or two quicker in this contest.
C&D winner in a June handicap hurdle on good ground off a 14lb lower mark. Added to the win at Sligo in July and one to consider here.
Distance winner of a Bellewstown contest over two years ago. Spent some time off the track and may need another couple of runs to get back in to the swing of things.
Running on the Flat recently and remains a 13-race maiden hurdler. Third of 10 when last seen in July but finished over 12L behind the winner. Has work to based on form to hand.
Proved her win at Bellewstown at the end of last month was no fluke when finishing second of 18 beaten a little over 1L here on Sunday. Should make her presence felt again despite another 3lb rise. Recently purchased by J P McManus.
12th of 20 at the Galway festival in the geldings first start in over a year before a dismal 47L defeat in a forgettable run at Ballinrobe last month. Easily resistible.
Three-race maiden hurdler who has not started at less than 100/1 in each of his starts to date. Looks a little out of his depth here.
Has produced four below-par maiden hurdle performances to date and is unlikely to play a part in the finish here.
Beaten favourite in a Down Royal handicap hurdle last month. Remains a nine-race maiden and losing run looks set to continue here.
Won a 2m4f Wexford handicap hurdle when not unbacked last month getting off the mark for connections at the fifth time of asking. Disappointing on a couple of occasions since and others preferred.
Has put together a couple of promising handicap hurdle runs recently without winning and his three career wins remain contained to AW successes. Deserves a change of luck.
Winner of a point-to-point in May before being well held in a couple of hurdle spins when last seen in July. Hard to place any faith in.
Generally well held in four hurdle starts the most recent in handicap company. Out of sorts recently and this looks a tough ask.
beaten favourite last time out at Killarney following a couple of encouraging starts in June/July. Not completely dismissed in this company.
First Reserve: Improved performance when last seen in July in a Killarney handicap hurdle over 2m1f. Plenty more needed in this group.
