Well held in three below par maiden hurdle displays since May and first-time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about any great improvement.
Nine-race maiden hurdler who has been well beaten in a number of recent starts since June. Racing 13lb lower than initial handicap mark but this still looks a tall order on form shown.
Plenty to like about an improved run in a Tramore 2m maiden hurdle when last seen in June finishing a little over 3L adrift of Rio Lobo. Could be capable of having his say here.
Will have disappointed influential connections in a series of gloomy displays over hurdles since the turn of the year. Worth a check in the betting on return to action here.
Well backed on hurdling debut to land a Tramore 2m maiden hurdle last month but the Court Cave gelding ended up a well beaten favourite. Market likely to be the best guide here.
Point-to-point winner who showed glimpses of ability in a couple of bumpers since the turn of the year. Found to be 'clinically abnormal' on hurdling debut but hard to place any faith in here.
Down the field in a number of hurdling starts since June and first-time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to take a hand in the finish.
Slight improvement on her laboured maiden hurdle spins when switched to handicap company but will need to improve once again in this contest.
Unseated latest when beaten in a Downpatrick 2m5½f handicap hurdle when last seen in May. Likely to find this a tough assignment.
