One from five at the track with success coming over C&D in a maiden in 2013. Solid and consistent all over the summer and in the mix on return here.
C&D winner was third of 14 in this contest 12-months ago off a 2lb lower mark. Holds every chance if getting the breaks during trademark late surge.
Well beaten and completely out of sorts in a number of drab displays July. Hard to see him making any significant impact.
Won from a 2lb lower mark here in March but below that standard in a number of races on turf since. Second of 14 in this contest 12-months ago off a 1lb higher mark. Place claims back here.
Highly tried modest handicapper who was last seen in a Group 3 contest at Fairyhouse in July. Remains to be seen if on a handy mark for AW introduction.
Solid and consistent sort who deservedly won a Curragh 1m handicap in August off a 2lb lower mark. Market possibly best guide here.
Winner of this contest 12-months ago off a 5lb higher mark. Largely well held since. Hard to fancy but he is back here and holds an inside berth.
Sixth of 13 on sole start here in August. Not beaten far on latest start at Naas but looks up against it here.
Running over further of late but finished second of seven beaten ½L over C&D in February off a 3lb higher weight. Can hit the frame off this mark.
12-race maiden for whom a fifth in a Group 2 last year did nothing for his handicap mark. Market likely to reveal expectations on AW debut.
Winner over C&D on three occasions but now races 16lb lower than his last winning mark. Needs to recapture old spark back here.
