Running well in defeat in three promising starts at much shorter trips. Distance winner in first-time tongue-tie to be respected.
C&D winner of a handicap over two years ago off a 6lb lower mark. Hit a career best mark of 97 at the turn of the year but is coming back down to something he can work off.
Solid and consistent in a number of starts over the summer over shorter trips. Goes on the ground but 12lb higher than last winning mark may stop him.
Distance winner of a Naas maiden on debut in June. Not disgraced in defeat until an unfortunate handicap debut at the Curragh last month. Better expected here.
Winner of a Listowel handicap over this trip two years ago off a 12lb lower mark. Has clearly progressed from their and won a Galway contest last month on heavy ground. Another bold show looks likely.
Winner of his last start in a Tipperary handicap over 1m1f on soft ground earlier this month off a 8lb lower mark. Could be up against on new mark.
Improved on debut run when winning a Listowel maiden over 7f last month at the Harvest festival. Appears to have been given a reasonable mark and could hit the frame.
Largely well held in a number of starts since winning at Sligo last month. Appears to need some relief from the handicapper.
Got his head back in front at Gowran four starts back but hasn't managed to land a blow from his revised mark since. Can't completely rule out but career best needed.
In good form this season running well in defeat including last time out a head behind Dream Walker at Galway last month off a 4lb lower mark. Likely to run well once again.
Lost his way a little since being upped in trip at the Curragh and Listowel last month. Worth a market check back over this distance.
