Has shown steady improvement since April culminating in a 2¼L win at Down Royal last month. Open to more improvement and a leading contender here.
Failed to land a hat-trick of wins in a Roscommon 3m handicap hurdle when last seen in July. Not easy to discount and holds strong place claims.
Plenty to like about the mares' performances since the Galway festival last month. Likable type who should be in the mix following a 2¼L win at Wexford earlier this month.
Unable to justify market position at Aintree in May before a gloomy return to action when 81L adrift of Brex Drago at Kilbeggan earlier this month.
Distance winner but was beaten 9½L on hurdling return at Bellewstown last month. Still 8lb higher than last winning mark and may struggle here.
One from 14 over hurdles and yet to get off the mark in five starts for the yard. Place claims at best.
Failed to finish in a couple of starts in November when last seen prior to a three and a half year break. Impossible to make a case for.
Well beaten and no impression in a number of below=par starts since April. Others preferred.
Course winner that has won over this trip. In solid form this year, bar a hiccup at Kilbeggan in July. Likely sort on paper.
Useful efforts already this summer in maiden hurdles running well in defeat. Improvement possible but place claims at best.
Nothing of note over hurdles in the early part of the year and much more similar story in a couple of starts at Kilbeggan recently.
Well beaten when finishing down the field in a couple of spins last month at Tramore. Others look more convincing at this level.
