Very consistent last year and improved from her reappearance to record a second course win over 5f last time out. High draw could be an advantage but will need a career best to take this.
Bounced back to form with an excellent effort when second of 23 at Navan last month and he's well handicapped on old form. Only narrowly denied and there's a fair chance he will come on for that effort here; leading player.
Should come on for his latest start when seemingly in need of the run at Leopardstown. Has looked more effective on AW than turf though and best form is over further than this.
Won four times last season, all at 5f. Hasn't been in the same form in two starts this time around but only 2lb above her last winning mark as a result. Stamina doubts over this trip though, particularly with cut in the ground.
Hasn't won since 2017 and shown nothing in three starts since joining this yard. Better efforts have come over 5f and opposable here.
Had been struggling this term but produced a much better effort when fifth of 18 at Leopardstown last time, shaping like a return to form was imminent. Useful 5lb claimer retains the ride and this drop in trip should suit; each-way player.
Only moderate form in maiden company and finished well beaten on only handicap start at Gowran when 14th of 16. Plenty more needed on her return here and drop in trip not certain to suit.
Yet to win in nine starts and her best effort came at 5f on fast ground. Barely beat a rival home on her last two efforts and doesn't look like an obvious contender here.
Yet to win in 13 starts on turf but produced one of his better efforts at Dundalk when last seen, a second of eight. On a feasible mark at least.
Won in claiming company at Dundalk in November but has shown nothing in five starts since for his new yard. Well-handicapped on old form but little else in his favour on return to turf here.
Just one win in 13 starts, a soft ground win over this trip at Doncaster a year ago. Back just below his last winning mark but has shown very little in three starts for this yard; step back up in trip needs to yield improvement.
Sole win in 20 starts came on AW at Wolverhampton over 7f. Falling handicap mark but drop back in trip unlikely to suit here.
Has shaped with a fair amount of promise in each of his three starts since making his belated debut at the age of five. Has been given a very nice mark for handicap debut here and his jockey's 3lb claim will help.
Belated off the mark over this trip at Dundalk at the 14th attempt but hasn't built on that in two starts back in handicap company; not without an each-way squeak but others hold stronger claims.
Both her wins have come over further than this. Ran well when fourth of 18 at Leopardstown on seasonal return but drop back in trip isn't certain to help and others look a little better handicapped.
Sole win came in France over an extended 5f. Ran well before seemingly failing to stay on debut for this yard at Leopardstown last time and may come on for that run.
Has only shown a small amount of promise in his three starts in maiden company, including when dropped to this trip for the first time over C&D latest; may do better now he's been gelded.
Showed very little on his first two starts but produced a better effort on his first try at this trip over C&D in October. May do better now handicapping and market probably best guide. Wears first-time tongue-tie.
Still a maiden after seven starts and while the handicapper is starting to relent a little, she's opposable in a race this competitive.
Shown nothing in three starts in maiden company. Dropped markedly in trip for handicap debut here and it's worth keeping a close eye on his market position given that his trainer's horses can improve under such conditions.
