Showed very little in a couple of handicap hurdle defeats last year and appears to need some relief from the handicapper before consideration.
Unable to halt a desolate run of form since maiden hurdle debut at Thurles in November. Looks a tall order on form shown.
Distance winner who finished fifth of 23 last month in a Tramore handicap hurdle on stable debut. Entitled to make the shortlist.
Still going well in a close up third when falling three out in a Thurles handicap hurdle when last seen in November on stable debut. Worth a market check.
Nothing of note in three disappointing maiden hurdle starts since November, but could be of interest following any market move on handicap debut.
Beaten at least 69L in each of his last three maiden hurdle starts since November. Could be of interest on handicap debut in first-time blinkers.
Winner of a Leicester handicap hurdle over a similar trip last month on good to firm ground. Carried 4lb more here and should make her presence felt.
Solid and consistent form in a couple of handicap hurdle starts recently at Tramore over a similar distance. Capable of running a big race.
Finished 72L adrift of the highly thought of Relegate in a Naas maiden hurdle last month on stable debut. Needs to improve on handicap introduction.
Regular visitor to the track but has appeared to have completely lost any semblance of ability since July. Out of form recently and hard to fancy.
Eight-race maiden who has hit the frame on just the one occasion. Needs to show significant improvement in this company.
Distance winner of a Limerick handicap hurdle on soft ground when last seen over Christmas off a 5lb lower mark. Another bold show looks likely.
Has flattered to deceive in a couple of runs since returning to action over hurdles in November. Even her best form would leave her short of what is required here.
Regressing gelding by Daylami who has been well beaten in a number of dispiriting efforts in the last 12-months. Hard to construct much of a case for him in this contest.
10-race maiden hurdler who is yet to hit the frame. Heavy defeats last summer, including an 88L reversal when last seen in July makes her impossible to consider.
Has produced a number of laboured runs in the last 12-months including when returning from a break in a Limerick handicap hurdle over Christmas. Needs to show significant improvement in this company.
Struggled since returning to action in October, including a heavy defeat on handicap debut on New year's day at Tramore. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.
