1m Killarney maiden winner in sixth start has been given very tough tasks since in pattern level contests at Tipperary and Listowel. This easier level for her handicap bow and respected despite big weight.
Landed a four-timer in the summer and made the frame in all four starts since. Placed last twice off today's mark and running on well late over 7f last time so this trip should suit better and again she merits maximum respect.
Dual soft ground scorer returned from a 196 day break at Tipperary in similar conditions last time out but was tailed off 15th of 16. Hard to recommend on the back of that.
French winner when trained by Andre Fabre ran well in a heavy ground handicap at Listowel penultimately and again showed appreciation for such conditions latest at Gowran when fourth. Quicker surface here is a doubt.
1m Ayr winner again made the frame the last twice when raiding across the Irish Sea at Chepstow (third) and Musselburgh (second). Upped 2lb for return to home soil but clearly in good order so merits respect.
Left two poor 2017 efforts behind latest after a break when winning at Navan over 1m where she quickened up nicely to win going away. Very unexposed on handicap debut and could prove better than this opening mark.
Not run a bad race since winning at Bellewstown in the summer with three thirds and two fourths to her name. Handicap unchanged after latest close fourth so again has every chance to go well.
Had a fine season for previous connections winning three times and was consistent on the whole. Lesser effort on debut for this yard last time out when a never nearer eighth of 16 at Navan. Better can be expected today and not ruled out.
Promise in three maidens with fourth of 17 finishes the last twice at Naas followed by over C&D here last time. Has potential now switched to handicapping especially off such a low weight.
Not made the frame in seven starts since Fairyhouse success back in June. Handicap mark falling but not running well enough to take advantage lately.
