Struggled in a maiden over an extended 7f at Roscommon (soft) on debut a month ago and fitted with cheekpieces for the first time in this event.
Beaten a head in a large field 7f contest at The Curragh (good-to-firm) on his penultimate start and ran well when third over 1m at Killarney (good) subsequently. Another bold show likely.
Unraced son of Intello and a half-brother to high class filly Emulous among others. Represents leading connections on racecourse debut.
Beaten 22L in a 5f maiden on soft-to-heavy ground here in March. Hood and visor worn that day are dispensed with upped in trip on debut for a new yard.
Unraced home-bred son of Famous Name out of a mare who ran well over this trip at three. Probably best watched on debut.
Ran well in a Listed race and two Group races earlier this year. Could finish only third over 1m at The Curragh (good) in maiden company last time out however. Likely to run his race once more.
Well held 18L fourth in a heavy ground Listowel maiden over 7f earlier this month. Likely to be of more interest once tackling handicaps.
Slowly away and never involved when making his debut in a 7f maiden at Roscommon (good) last time out. others make more appeal.
Good efforts in two starts so far most recently when fifth over 7f at Gowran Park (good-to-firm) two weeks ago. Of interesting stepping up in distance.
Finished a close fourth on debut at Leopardstown (7f, good-to-firm) in July prior to finishing third at Galway (7f, yielding) 11 days later. Step up in trip should suit and is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Unraced gelded son of Lilbourne Lad and a half-brother to the useful Takrice. Market support would be interesting on debut.
Unraced son of Alhebayeb and a half-brother to the yards winner Abbakova. Interesting to see how he fares in this event.
Unraced son of Ruler Of The World purchased for 32,000 gns as a yearling last October. Half-brother to dual winner Fareeq and is likely to be better over further in time.
Trailed home last of 14 when making her debut at Leopardstown (7f, good-to-firm) in May. Returning from a break but likely to be of more interest in handicaps.
Beaten 20L when finishing ninth of 14 in a 1m maiden at The Curragh (good-to-yielding) on debut three weeks ago. More needed in this contest.
Well held sixth in a 1m maiden at Leopardstown (good-to-firm) when debuting in July. Likely to struggle on this occasion.
Held in a couple of maiden races so far most recently over 1m at Cork (good) last month. Others hold stronger claims.
Beaten 16L when finishing 17th of 20 in a 6f maiden at The Curragh (good-to-yielding) three weeks ago. More needed stepping up in distance.
Well held when debuting in a maiden over an extended 7f at Roscommon (soft) a month ago. Probably best watched on this occasion. First reserve.
