Currently having a little of an 'in and out' season where a promising run is followed by a couple of dour efforts. Not one to fully place trust in.
Gallant and consistent performer on the Flat lately and will need to improve on a disappointing run at Clonmel last month when last of five. Place claims.
Could possibly have needed the run on return to action at Galway last month but still high enough in the weights for a five-race maiden.
Recently purchased by leading owner following a win at Bellewstown in August. Beaten since but likely to improve and worth considering.
Continues in good form since winning her maiden at Downpatrick in September. Should be a leading contender in this company.
Beaten wide margins in three maiden hurdles since August before falling at the fourth at Downpatrick last month. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.
Generally well held in a number of handicap hurdles off this mark and appeared to have a hard race at Cork when fourth of 23 beaten over 12L on Sunday.
Seven-race maiden hurdler and has struggled in three handicap starts since August. First time tongue-tie unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Last win over hurdles was here over C&D in December 2016 off a 1lb lower mark. Place claims with many conditions to suit here.
Much her best effort this term when second of 13 to Lusis Naturea in handicap at Down Royal in August, but that run is beginning to appear as a one-off sandwiched between a number of desolate efforts.
C&D winner of a handicap hurdle off a 4lb lower mark 12-months ago. Likely to find better handicapped sorts lurking on the card.
C&D winner on good ground last month off an 8lb lower mark in a race that has produced the second, Brosna George and the ninth place, Beeper's Ruby to win next time out. Holds leading claims.
Standout effort over hurdles when seventh to Dia del Sol in a 2m maiden at Wexford in September. Well held since and this looks a tough task.
Will only have disappointed connections with a series of dismal displays since joining current yard in the spring. Others preferred.
