Won a 2m1f Downpatrick beginners chase last month on debut beating 10 rivals ¾L. Likely to improve and looks a key player.
Not disgraced on chasing debut in a competitive Listowel contest before an improving third of 11 beaten a little over 9L at Sligo last month. Capable of hitting the frame in this company.
Only got as far as the first last month in a Wexford handicap chase. Winner of five of his 30 chase starts but is still a couple of pound higher than his last winning mark and isn't getting any younger.
Winner in the Flat this term but her win at Thurles last November remains her only success over the larger obstacles in eight starts. Back on that winning mark and holds strong place claims.
Solid and consistent in a number of encouraging starts since June. Mare who deserves a change of luck and is likely to be in the mix once again.
Distance winner of a Downpatrick handicap chase in June off an 11lb lower mark. Deservedly shot up the ratings but appears in the grip of the handicapper right now.
Appeared to be turning back the clock at Wexford last month when second of eight at 20/1 beaten a little over 5L. Unlikely to repeat that run here now he isn't getting any younger.
