C&D winner who has been a little out of form over the summer suffering a couple of heavy defeats including here last month.
Winner of three of his 20 starts here but is now racing 15lb lower than his last winning mark. Any market move should be monitored.
C&D winner and successful in two of her eight starts here. Back below last winning mark - 4lb - and has conditions to suit in this contest.
Won a couple of claimers at Ballinrobe during the summer but held back in a couple of handicaps before getting on the board again in a Hamilton handicap over 1m½f last month. Leading player on another solid run at Navan latest.
Winner of two of his 27 starts at this venue and caught the eye here on return last month when finishing fourth of 14. Enters calculations here.
Well beaten on her sole start here over 12-months ago. Nothing of note since and hard to fancy in this company.
Finished sixth of 13 well beaten over 8L here last month. Will need to raise overall performance to land a blow here.
Not much to shout about in three starts here last season and on a run at Gowran Park in August. First time cheekpieces less likely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.
C&D winner who has a number of conditions in her favour here but is liable to find one or two better handicapped in this contest.
Seven-race maiden who has been running well in defeat and can hit the frame here for yard that have a 52% win and place strike rate in early/mid October at the track.
Has produced a number of laboured runs over the summer including a couple of defeats at the venue. Looks opposable.
Promise in second of three races for current yard but otherwise little to shout about in her career including a 9L defeat at Gowran Park earlier this month. Others hold stronger profiles.
Running well in defeat here over C&D around the turn of the year and finished 6¾L adrift of Park Row here last month. Not ruled out but a couple of below par runs to shake off.
Performance rates have dwindled since debut run at Listowel over 12-months ago. Others appear to be progressing at a quicker rate.
