Won a maiden at Limerick back in June but has generally been well held in a number of drab efforts since. Has failed to beat an opponent home in his last two races and first-time blinkers unlikely to make much difference here.
Well held on three dismal efforts on turf before finishing over 7L adrift of the winner on AW debut here earlier this month. Others look to be progressing at a quicker rate.
Well held on three turf starts over the autumn before running well in defeat as beaten favourite on AW debut here earlier this month over this trip. Yard boast a 21% strike rate at the track this month and likely to go well once again.
Six-race maiden who is finding his feet on the AW running well in defeat on a couple of occasions recently including over C&D earlier this month. Strong place claims.
Has failed to build on promising debut run in August with a couple of heavy defeats since on turf. Improved on latest start over C&D earlier this month beaten 3½L. Trainer has saddled two juvenile winners here this month.
Got off the mark at the fourth time of asking for connections over C&D earlier this month off a 10lb mark and a number of these behind. Open to plenty of improvement.
Poor turf form carried over to the AW earlier this month when finishing a little over 6L behind the winner over 5f. Big step up in trip and yard in good form here this month.
Steps up in trip following a number of disappointing displays since debut in October. Worth a market check with yard saddling two juvenile winners here this month.
Five-race maiden including a 5L defeat over C&D behind Calling Time earlier this month. Others make more appeal.
Five-race maiden well held by a number of todays opposition last time out over C&D earlier this month when finishing 6¼L behind Calling Time. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.
Six-race maiden finished seventh of 14 beaten 5L behind Calling Time earlier this month. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Has shown very little in defeat in three career starts to date including a heavy defeat on AW debut over 5f here earlier this month. Has a bit to prove at present.
Well held on three career starts to date and left with something to prove on the balance of her form since August. First time cheekpieces doubtful to bring about the required amount of progress needed to play a role here.
Five-race maiden and hard to fancy on AW debut until she shows a hint of ability. Faces a tough task here.
