Consistent when running well in defeat in a number of starts since July. Course winner that has also won over the trip but others look open to more improvement.
Distance winner who landed a Roscommon 1m2½f handicap last month off a 4lb lower mark. Holds strong place claims here.
Winner over this trip two-years ago. Out of form lately now running 11lb lower than last winning mark. Tough ask.
Not beaten far in a series of gallant efforts in defeat including finishing third of 12 beaten a little over 5L earlier this month at Naas. Open to significant improvement.
Not disgraced in a number of competitive contest over the summer. Others look more convincing at this level.
Still a maiden after nine starts over a variety of trips. Can go well but may find one or two too good.
Distance winner of a Cork handicap on heavy ground in March. May have needed run on return to action recently at Roscommon but likely to be better handicapped sorts lurking.
One win came as a two-year-old for George Margarson before he lost his way. Just respectable efforts for current yard, and needs a bit more help from the assessor on recent evidence.
Enjoying a fine summer, with wins at Killarney and Down Royal in July over longer trips. Second here last month over a similar trip in a race where the form hasn't quite worked out.
Very disappointing on handicap debut when last over 1m2f at Killarney after showing plenty of potential in maidens before a dismal run at the Curragh latest. Likely to struggle here.
Well behind in two career starts and first-time blinkers inconceivable to produce the required amount of development needed to play a role here.
Well held on quick ground when last seen at Naas in June. Best efforts come on soft ground so market check based on her third at Navan in April.
Out of form since winning a 1m2f Roscommon maiden in August last year. Requires a chunk of improvement to play a role here.
Little impact in a series of inept displays since July over a large variety of trips. May find it tough going here.
First Reserve: Without a win on the Flat from 16 starts on turf including a heavy defeat behind Koybig at Killarney when last seen in July.
Third Reserve: Beaten favourite on her last couple of appearances, last and earlier this month at Roscommon. Back on a winning mark but conditions may not suit.
