Handicap debut winner over 7f on good ground at Down Royal earlier this month. Represents a top yard and strong claims despite a 10lb rise in the weights.
Fair form when fourth over 1m at Cork (good) last month. Disappointed in two subsequent starts however. Worth a check in the market on handicap debut.
Placed over 6f at Leopardstown (good-to-firm) in July. Struggled in two starts since including in a valuable sales race at the weekend.
Signs of ability in three starts to date most recently when eighth over 1m at The Curragh (good-to-yielding) three weeks ago. Interesting on handicap debut.
Finished 4L last of five on handicap debut at The Curragh (good-to-firm) two months ago. Absent since and struggled on only previous start at this distance.
Improved for step up to 1m when finishing 7L fifth at Killarney (good) a month ago. Worth a check in the market on handicap debut.
Placed twice prior to winning a maiden claiming contest over an extended 7f at Tipperary (good-to-yielding) three weeks ago. Making her handicap and stable debut in this event.
Registered her first placed effort when second in a 7f contest at Down Royal (good) on handicap debut recently. Wears cheekpieces for the first time stepping up in distance.
Signs of ability in three outings so far but more needed on handicap bow having finished eight of 11 over an extended 7f at Tipperary (good-to-yielding) last time.
Placed on debut at Cork in May but failed to build on that in four subsequent starts most recently over an extended 6f on handicap debut at The Curragh (good-to-firm) last month.
Placed over 7f on yielding ground at Galway early last month. Held in two subsequent outings however and is making her handicap debut stepping up in trip.
Run well in defeat in four starts to date most recently on handicap debut at Down Royal (7f, good) earlier this month. Blinkers added to the tongue tie she wore that day.
Struggled in three starts so far but represents a yard in good form at present (3/7) and market support would be interesting switched to handicaps.
Beaten 6L when making her handicap debut over an extended 5f on good ground here a fortnight ago. Stamina to prove from out of the handicap.
Beaten a minimum of 15L in three starts so far. Likely to appreciate the step up in trip but probably best watched on handicap debut from out of the weights.
Failed to figure in three starts in maiden races and probably best watched upped in distance from out of the weights on handicap debut.
Well beaten at big prices in four maiden starts including over 7f at Galway (yielding) early last month. Others make more appeal on handicap debut from out of the weights.
