Winner of her last two starts including a 3m handicap hurdle at Leopardstown (soft) by a neck earlier this month. One to note dropping in trip despite having to concede weight to all of her rivals.
Fair sixth in a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m6f at Thurles (good-to-yielding) last weekend. Likely more needed if he is to register a victory on this occasion.
Maiden hurdle winner on yielding ground at Fairyhouse (2m4f) in January and finished a good second off a mark of 109 over the same C&D subsequently. One for the shortlist in this event.
Returning from a break when finishing third in a 2m novice hurdle at Fairyhouse (good) last month. Bidding to complete a hat-trick that day and is of interest in this contest.
11 race maiden finished well beaten in a maiden hurdle on soft ground at Gowran Park (2m) last week. Needs to put that effort behind him to figure in this race.
Placed in a soft ground maiden hurdle at Cork (3m) in January and put a disappointing handicap debut behind him when fifth at Thurles (3m, good) last time out. Interesting dropping back in distance.
