Golden Lariat filly. Dam, ran twice over hurdles, 7f/1m winner on the Flat. Tailed off at Fairyhouse in a 2m bumper in December on rules bow and again well in rear on hurdling introduction.
Half-sister to three winners. Dam showed little in bumpers and this mare has followed suit. Hard to fancy on hurdles debut.
Fair bumper performer who showed some promise on first two starts over timber. However, she did not jump well last time and needs to improve that aspect to take advantage of an uncompetitive opportunity.
Beat Hollow mare, whose dam was a bumper/2m6f hurdle winner. Has not beaten many home in either start over hurdles but Sean Flanagan now booked to replace a conditional.
A Doyen mare that is a half-sister to a 2m5f-3m winner, so the indications are that she will be happier over this trip following an inauspicious debut over 2m.
Yeats filly out of a bumper winner who is a half-sister to smart 2m-3m1f hurdle/chase winner Fair Along and useful 7f Flat/2m hurdle winner Fairlyand. Clear promise shown in her three bumpers and makes her hurdling debut over the right sort of trip.
Fourth in a hot bumper on debut but has made little progress since. Hard to fancy on hurdling debut.
Winning point-to-pointer who was a beaten favourite on bumper debut and again on hurdling bow. Easy to back on heavy ground last time before pulling up. May bounce back on this quicker surface, but it would still be an idea to watch the market.
Half-sister to five-time winner Miss Sapphire. Given the pedigree she should find this trip her optimum. Will appreciate the better ground than was the case here last month when a promising fourth on her hurdling debut and gets stronger handling.
Unraced Windsor Knot filly out of a dam who was a maiden under both codes. Yard 4-133 with their hurdlers over the past five seasons so the signs are not promising.
Would probably have finished ahead of Golden Glory here last month but for falling two out. Beaten since over shorter but clear chances in this modest grade for a yard that took the 2015 renewal.
Approve half-sister to three Flat winners. Pedigree does not lend itself to this kind of trip and yard 0-22 in past five years.
Makes little appeal on pedigree nor on the lack of promise in an 80L defeat on debut. Jockey bookings indicate Dicey is yard's number one.
Beat little of note in an an average time to win an Oldstown point-to-point two years ago. Nevertheless, not highly tried on rules debut for top yard.
Only minor promise so far in bumpers and sole hurdles start. Big step up required even at this modest level.
€700 purchase as a three-year-old who showed little on her hurdling debut. Tongue-tie fitted now and yard have been quiet for a while.
Distant third in a poor race last time. Looked one paced so the longer trip may help, but preferable to look elsewhere for a likely winner.
Galileo filly. Closely related to useful hurdler/chaser Teacher's Pet and handy chaser Whatareudoingtome who came from this stable. First two starts indicate she may need more time.
