Beaten favourite in a couple of maiden hurdle spins last month but will not have to improve much to land a blow here.
Daughter of Stowaway out of a Beneficial mare. Winner of one of two point-to-point starts and hold place claims at best here.
Finished runner-up on four of her five starts in bumpers and never a factor in a couple of maiden hurdles recently. Others preferred.
Oscar mare. Dam, maiden pointer, half-sister to fair hurdler/fairly useful chaser. Beaten 81L on maiden hurdle debut at Kilbeggan last month.
Poor bumper performer and generally well held on debut when third of 15 beaten 22L in a Tramore 2m5f maiden hurdle last month. Needs to improve to play a role here.
Out of an Ahaarth mare, closely related to winners from a few years ago, namely Chivite, Iktitaf and Torphichen. Hard to make a case for here.
Daughter of Fruits Of Love out of a Distinctly North mare. Market likely to reveal expectations on debut run here.
Second of 13 beaten a little over 2l earlier this month at Wexford over 3m. Best form gives her a claim in this contest.
Well held in a Galway bumper in October before finishing 32L adrift of Beautiful Citi at Listowel last week on maiden hurdle debut. Needs to improve.
Not much to get excited about in four grim maiden hurdle starts since May when never a factor on all starts.
€15,000 purchase as a sister to Monksland and half-sister to Bobcatbilly. Well held on maiden hurdle debut at Cork when last seen in April and looks up against it here.
Will have disappointed supporters when beaten favourite in a Down Royal 2m maiden hurdle last month finishing over 7L behind the winner Red Pearl. Likely to improve on hurdling debut and worth a market check.
Not disgraced in three bumper starts before a couple of promising runs at Cork and Wexford recently. More needed here though.
Daughter of Mahler out of a Brian Boru mare. Half-sister to Sutton Place, Ms Parfois and August Market Rasen winner Grow Nasa Grow. No impression on debut in a Down Royal bumper and may struggle here.
Filly by Sans Frontieres out of a Luso mare. Half-sister to hurdle winner No Hassle Hoff. Only got as far as the first when unruly and unseating on debut at Listowel last week.
Arctic Cosmos filly out of a Grand Lodge mare. St Leger winning sire has his first four-year-olds this term. Needs to show significant improvement on debut run at Tramore last month.
Unraced daughter of Stowaway out of a Quest For Fame mare. Cost €23,000 as a three-year-old. Worth a market check on debut from leading yard.
Low-rated Flat handicapper well held beaten 39L on a tough debut in a 2m½f novice hurdle at the Galway festival before an improved run last time at Tramore behind Teqany.
