Doyen mare. Closely related to bumper winner/ useful hurdler Sealous Scout, and half-sister to fair hurdler O Ceallaigh. Not disgraced on debut at Navan earlier this month and likely to improve.
Stowaway mare is a half-sister to bumper winner/useful hurdler Smitty Bacall and bumper winner Palm Sur. Poor effort when last of nine tailed off on Wexford debut. Needs more.
Shaped as if she'd improve for the experience when finishing fifth in a 2m bumper at Naas on debut earlier this month but appeared to be beaten 4f out at Limerick last month. Needs vast improvement.
Promising second of 15 beaten 2¾L on debut in a Naas bumper last month. Winner has placed on a couple of occasions since, with the ninth winning at Thurles last month.
By Oscar out of a Presenting mare. Winner of a point-to-point earlier this month. Worth a market check on hurdling and stable debut.
Vast improvement, when finishing third of 12 beaten 11½L on previous dour efforts, and is entitled to make the shortlist in this company.
Doyen mare, agonisingly denied in summer bumpers at Killarney and Galway, going equally well on good/soft ground. Possibly needed the run on return to action in a Naas contest when a disappointing favourite. Strong claims.
Six-race maiden in bumpers and has possibly seen the best chance of winning one of these contests pass him by.
Filly by Fame And Glory out of a Presenting mare. Possibly worth a market check on debut from a small yard who have produced a winner from seven bumper starts this term.
Daughter of Stowaway out of an Anshan mare. One pace seventh of 14 beaten 18L on Galway debut in October before disappointing on return to action earlier in the month at Fairyhouse.
Filly by Fame And Glory out of a Saddlers' Hall mare. Yard one winning bumper from 19 starts this term but worth a check in the market given jockey appointment.
Decent effort in finishing runner-up in an eight-runner bumper at Kilbeggan on debut in June but has generally disappointed in a couple of starts since November - despite finishing position at Limerick. Others preferred.
Filly by Arcadio out of a Blueprint mare. Looks opposable on debut in this company for small Co. Cork yard.
Presenting filly, mostly run well in five-race bumper career starts without managing to record a win. Well held on hurdling debut at Navan earlier this month, but worth another chance here.
