Improving 79-rated handicapper on the Flat. Yard 10 winners in the last 14 days and are 38 from 285 (13%) this term. One to watch in the market on hurdling debut.
Won a Fairyhouse bumper in April in good style with Stucker Hill in behind, but has failed to transfer that form over hurdles in a couple of dull efforts last month.
Sent off at 66/1 on maiden hurdle debut at Tramore on New year's day, running accordingly in the process. Looks opposable.
In mid-division when brought down on maiden hurdle debut at Tramore earlier this month over 2m. Unfancied for that contest and much of the same expected today.
Disappointed last month on maiden hurdle debut at Limerick, but can be expected to improve for the run for leading trainer/jockey combination.
Brought down at the fourth in a Tramore maiden hurdle earlier this month. Plenty of work on based on what she has shown so far.
Will have disappointed connections with a series of desolate displays over hurdles and on the level since returning to action last month following an absence of 12-months.
Has looked over-whelmed in a number of recent performances in bumpers and maiden hurdles, including a couple of heavy defeats last month. Plenty to prove here in first-time cheekpieces.
Daughter of Court Cave out of a Marju mare. Yard just five from 38 with the stables hurdlers this season and possibly best watched on hurdling debut here.
Dropped to the rear 6f out on debut in a Wexford 2m bumper in May before eventually pulling-up. First-time tongue tie fitted but unlikely to make a mark in this contest.
Maiden running off a mark of 104 and could be of interest based on her second of 14 beaten a little over 3L in a Limerick maiden hurdle in November. Well held on handicap debut last month at Limerick but holds place claims here.
Very little to be positive about given her first couple of starts to date at Wexford and Thurles in the autumn of last year.
Daughter of Classic Cliche out of a Saddlers Hall mare. Appears to have useful form in a number of point-to-point starts last year and could be of interesting on debut under rules.
Not much to shout about in a couple of gloomy career starts to date. Plenty to find in this company.
By Multiplex out of a Grand Lodge mare. Could be worth a check for any market move on debut for yard who are three from 27 with their hurdlers this term.
Filly by Thewayyouare who was being pushed along three out on debut in a Gowran Park maiden hurdle when last seen in November. Looks vulnerable in this company.
First Reserve: Dream Well filly out of a Lavirco mare. Likely to be a warm order if making the line-up for leading yard.
Third Reserve: Getaway mare is a half-sister to two hurdle winners from 2m-2m4f. Well held on debut at Cork earlier this month and more needed here.
