Gelding by Authorized out of a Sanglamore mare. Last seen on the Flat in France for previous connections winning over 1m1f at Longchamp. Likely to be a warm order on stable debut.
Won a Carlisle novice event over 6f in 2017, when trained by Jedd O'Keeffe. Generally well held in three starts for current connections including a 78L deficit when last seen at Gowran Park in February. Others look open to more improvement.
Gelding by Balko out of a Officiel mare. Half-brother to French 2m3f hurdle winner Antiseptique. Promising second of 11 beaten ¾L on stable debut in a Wexford maiden hurdle over 2m last month. Worth noting in the betting.
Gelding by So You Think out of a Tiger Hill mare. Dam raced once on the Flat, out of a half-sister (Unraced) to the top-class 1¼m/1½m Pilsudski. Market likely to reveal expectations on debut.
Out of Casamento purchased for €1,200 as a yearling. Dam unraced. Yet to get anywhere near hitting the frame in a couple of career starts to date. Well held on return to the track at Limerick last month and more needed here.
Soldier Hollow out of a Rahy mare. Half-brother to three winners on the Flat, including German 1¼m/1m1f winner Miss Europa. Appears to be 'second string' but must be respected in the market.
Trans Island gelding out of a Overbury mare. Dam bumper winner/well beaten 2m-2m4f over hurdles. Towards rear for most of the way on debut in a Limerick maiden hurdle last month. Likely to find it tough going here.
Nine race maiden yet to finish better than seventh in four starts since switched to this yard. First time tongue-tie unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to trouble the judge.
Career best on penultimate start in a Naas 2m handicap hurdle last month finishing fourth of seven beaten 1¼L off a 1lb lower mark. Making some headway when blundering at the final flight in a Limerick handicap hurdle last month. Place claims.
Gelding by Le Fou out of a Shernazar mare. Cost €5,500 as a foal and is a half-brother to 2m hurdle winner Calton Entry. Yard currently holding a 48% win and place strike rate with their hurdlers in the last 30 days.
Nothing of note, generally well held in two career starts on the Flat for GB trainer William Fitzpatrick. Newbridge, Co Kildare yard are without a winner in the last five years.
Filly by Notnowcato out of a Galileo mare. Half-sister to 2m hurdle winner Katoptris. Yard have sent out 53 hurdle runners this season without success, with seven hitting the frame. Best watched on debut.
Poor form on the Flat and well held when finishing down the field in a couple of hurdle starts when last seen in October last year. Yard going well on the level but no hurdle winner since December.
Casamento filly out of a Diktat mare. Nothing of note in five starts on the Flat for trainer Paddy Prendergast. Beaten 84L on hurdling debut at Fairyhouse earlier this month and looks readily opposable here.
First Reserve: Modest 48-rated Flat handicapper who looks a long-term prospect related to useful Nicky Henderson Grade 3 winner Jenkins. Not disgraced on debut when sixth of 12 at Roscommon in August. More needed if making the line-up.
Second Reserve: Tailed off on his most recent starts on the AW here and over hurdles at Punchestown in December finishing 19th of 22 beaten 55L. Easy to look elsewhere.
