14:40 Galway Tue 9 October 2018
Winner on hurdling debut when making good headway in the final stages to land a Listowel maiden last month. Improvement looks to be on the cards.
Winner on debut in a Sligo maiden hurdle over 2m4f when last seen in August. Another bold show looks likely. First-time tongue-tie sure to assist.
Solid and consistent finishing positions since May including a well deserved win at Downpatrick in August before a defeat behind the improving Brex Drago at Clonmel last month. Could go well once again.
Plenty to like about his second of 14 running Falak to ¾L in a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle in August before landing a Listowel contest last month over this trip. Capable of running a big race once again.
Distance winner of a Sligo maiden hurdle before a heavy defeat when upped to novice company when last seen in July. Needs to improve.
Landed a Ballinrobe hurdle over this trip in May. Beaten since but hints of a return to form at Listowel last month.
Still a maiden but has been running well. Almost off the mark at Galway in a big field handicap a couple of starts back when going down just a neck. Expected to go well but always liable to 'bump' in to one.
Put a couple of desperate maiden hurdle runs behind him when landing a Roscommon maiden hurdle earlier this month. Needs to show consistency at this level.
