Flattered by latest finishing positions, the Doyen gelding has been well held on both starts this term including a 33L defeat when last seen in May. Plenty to find here.
In poor form in a series of second-rate efforts since returning to action in June. Looks vulnerable in this company.
Winner of a point-to-point in April before three shuddering defeats in a Tipperary bumper and a couple of maiden hurdles recently. Out of form and hard to fancy.
Well held when finishing down the field in three bumpers. Looks a tall order on form shown.
Has shown relatively little in a couple of maiden hurdles to date and requires a chunk of improvement to play a role here in first-time cheekpieces.
Has produced a number of inadequate runs over hurdles and will require a vast improvement needed to figure.
Yet to start a race at less than odds of 40/1 and has run accordingly in three career starts to date.
Has disappointed connections with a number of gloomy efforts in November and December of last year. Hard to see him making any significant impression.
The fitting of a tongue-tie and cheekpieces have failed to have the desired effect in a number of below-par displays. Plenty of work to do based on what she has shown so far.
Beaten a long way in four career maiden hurdle starts to date. Hard to see her making any significant impact.
Career best effort in a Clonmel maiden hurdle earlier this month when finishing fourth of nine beaten a little over 10L on good ground. More progress possible.
Has shown plenty of promise on her last couple of starts since August including finishing sixth of 18 beaten over 5L in a Clonmel maiden hurdle last month. Improvement looks to be on the cards.
