Useful 99-rated handicap hurdler and winner over 2m5f at Tramore in August. Wont need to improve much on a couple of chase starts at Downpatrick recently to play a role.
Nothing of note in four starts over timber and pulled up when tailed off before two out on chasing debut at Wexford last month. Others preferred.
Modest 94-rated hurdler whose run at Fairyhouse last month was an improvement on a couple of disappointing effort before. Tailed off on sole chase start at Kilbeggan over two years ago.
Blinkers have been added for three starts over fences so far but they haven't sparked him into life. Now tried in first-time tongue-tie/cheekpieces combination and any market move on first run for connections should be monitored.
Inconsistent 94-rated handicap hurdler who only got as far as the first on only chase start in May. Place claims looking at the opposition.
Possibly needed the run on stable debut when fourth of seven beaten 22L in a Kilbeggan beginners chase in June but has been well held in a couple of hurdle starts since. Worth a market check.
Won a bumper sometime ago but remains a well beaten nine-race maiden hurdler and is impossible to make a case for on chasing introduction.
Better known as a hurdler, hasn't managed a win since 2015 and could be one to note for the future on chasing bow here.
Not much to shout about in four career chase starts with her last venture over the larger obstacles coming over 18-months ago. Well below par form looks set to continue here.
One win from 33 starts and is lowly rated over hurdles. Hard to see her making any significant impact on chasing debut.
