Three wins on Flat at up to 1m4f and ideally suited in that sphere by soft ground. Seventh of 25 and shaped with promise on hurdles debut and may not be far away this time.
Landed Cork bumper last March and runner-up in all four starts since, including Grade 3 bumper. Beaten favourite on both starts over hurdles but has run well each time and this looks her best chance yet to get off the mark over timber.
Won on racecourse bow in France for Andre Fabre in June 2017. Joined current yard last August and has shown ability on five starts on Flat. Hurdles bow here and wouldn't have to be too smart to get involved.
Yeats mare who showed a little ability when finishing in midfield on hurdles bow here last month. Should strip fitter and more streetwise but needs to take another step forward to figure.
Placed in Tramore bumper last season but didn't show a huge amount when well beaten on only start over hurdles in November. May be best watched for the time being.
Represents yard in superb form at present. Runner-up in point-to-point last March and has shown some ability without setting the world alight in two starts this campaign under Rules. Tongue tied for first time.
Showed little on racecourse bow in November over 2m4f, but did better last time over this trip when sixth at Thurles in November. Not without a chance and any market move for her would be significant.
Shantou mare making debut here. Damn is unraced sister to Irish National hero Hear The Echo. Bred to need further so probably best watched on this occasion.
Well beaten in two bumpers and on hurdles debut at Naas in December. Probably won't figure until going handicapping and has plenty to prove.
Maiden on Flat in France for Eoghan O'Neill but has shown ability in this sphere and was good fourth in listed event at Doncaster last time. This is easier and should be very much in the thick of the action.
Yet to reach a place in five starts on Flat and over jumps and appears very modest on all evidence to date. Impossible to fancy.
Mixed messages from two starts over hurdles in France. Has joined top yard though so must have ability and any sign of market confidence would be well worth noting on Irish debut.
Looked a little green and will likely have needed the experience when ultimately well held on debut over course and distance last month. Appears to need more time.
Ability on Flat in all three starts at up to 1m2f and not disgraced on hurdles debut when 10th of 28 behind Sir Erec. Open to improvement and top rider booking is encouraging.
