Poor in Ballinrobe bumper in May on sole rules start to date, though did score in a point-to-point at Loughanmore last month, so not one to disregard.
Not exactly progressing in four starts over hurdles at 2m-2m4f, moderate third at Fairyhouse latest over this trip. Will run her race but could be vulnerable.
Daughter of Yeats, landed a point-to-point at the second time of asking in March, off since and should be suited by this sort of test on rules bow, market check called for.
Well-bred filly by Presenting out of a Bach mare related to Denman and War Of Attrition. Nothing to shout about in bumpers, could do better over timber and one of two for trainer in this line-up.
Has shown likeable attitude at times in six-race bumper career without registering a win, though best efforts have come over shorter. Represents top trainer and his only runner in a big field.
Tailed off at Roscommon on debut over hurdles in June 2017 and 13 further starts on the Flat haven't yielding much hope. Passed over here.
Daughter of Oscar out of a Dilshaan mare related to game sorts Big Zeb, Peddlers Cross and Rock On Ruby. Placed in both hurdles starts (third) so far, and race-fit for this. Should be involved.
Point-to-point winner in March 2017, though jumped poorly two further starts in that sphere and not spotted since being tailed off in a bumper at Naas 392 days ago.
Some pleasing efforts in bumpers, finished 21L fourth of 13 on hurdles bow at Thurles (2m, good) last month. Not without a hope if managing to jump a bit more fluently upped in distance.
Killarney bumper winner in August at fifth attempt, last spotted running down the field in Group 3 Flat contest at Naas over 2m in September. Makes hurdles bow and one worth noting.
Daughter of Milan, improved on third start to win a Fairyhouse bumper over 2m4f on good ground in April. Returns to make hurdling bow and should be capable in this sphere before long.
Mahler mare. Sister to fairly useful hurdler Randy Pike, and half-sister to fairly useful hurdler Plan Again. Should have plenty stamina on pedigree. May need this run.
Supported in the market a couple of times in three outings over timber. Latest finished 12L second of nine in Fairyhouse maiden over this trip on good ground. Place claims again seemingly.
By Oscar out of a Roselier mare. Sister to bumper winner Oscar Blue. Has to improve on pair of bumper showings to get involved now going over obstacles.
September Storm filly. Half-sister to bumper winner/fair chaser Blue Empyrean. Likely best watched on first start unless betting is strong.
Filly well held in both point-to-point starts and likely will benefit from experience of this first outing under rules.
Daughter of Walk In The Park, just edged out in second point-to-point run in March and has since joined Joseph O'Brien to commence rules career. Should have something to offer.
Network filly is a half-sister to bumper winner Malindi Bay. One of two for Jessica Harrington in this field and looks the pick. Betting check required.
Milan filly out of a Mondrian mare. Has shown enough in three bumper starts to suggest she can make a mark as a hurdler. Fell in one of two point-to-point start however.
Presenting filly, mostly run well in five-race bumper career without managing to record a win. Fit from Galway spin in October and type to do better over jumps for leading yard.
Hinted at ability when mid-field in a Galway bumper in October, fell early in hurdles bow at Fairyhouse since. Hard to assess.
