C&D winner here over 12-months ago off a 13lb lower mark. Slipping down the handicap once more and holds strong place claims here.
Good form of the spring appears to have disappeared and a 12L defeat when finishing 11th of 16 doesn't stir the enthusiasm.
Seven-race maiden who had shown little signs of ability before a promising second of 12 at Down Royal when last seen in June.
Most encouraging run in a four-race career came at the Listowel festival recently running Shifted Strategy to ½L earlier this month. Repeat of that run would put the filly in the mix here.
Maiden wasn't disgraced on handicap debut when sixth beaten 2½L at Cork over 7f before a disappointing run at the Curragh last month. Will need to improve here.
C&D winner earlier this month on good to firm ground off a 5lb lower mark. Possibilities of going well again but is not the most consistent of sorts.
Not disgraced in a number of starts since May, running well in defeat. Needs to improve on last run but not totally ruled out.
Five-race maiden who has struggled in a couple of starts in June and requires a chunk of improvement to play a part in the finish here.
Struggled in two starts over 1m2f including on yielding ground at Ballinrobe in June before a dismal run in a Tipperary maiden over 1m1f last month. Needs to show significant improvement in this company.
11-race maiden on the Flat and is yet to hit the frame in six starts on turf. Hard to fancy until she shows a hint of ability.
Recently returned from a two year break but has shown very little in three races since. Well out of his depth in this company.
Winner of two of his 33 starts on turf including a win over C&D in June 2015 off a 3lb higher mark. Running well in defeat towards the end of last season and worth a check in the betting.
Win over C&D over two years ago is a distant memory right now and below-par displays are expected to continue here.
Home-bred Dawn Approach filly, cost €50,000 as a foal. Half-sister to a dual-Listed winner. Nothing in three career starts to date and others preferred.
Five-race maiden well held on all starts. First time visor unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Promise of Naas third on second start as a two-year-old now a distant memory and form since basically regressive. May find this a tough assignment.
