Put a number of below-par efforts behind her when landing a Wexford novice handicap hurdle under this rider to win by ¾L in the 12-runner contest last month. Would not not have to improve too much to produce another bold bid.
Produced a career best effort when finishing eighth of 15 beaten 8½L in a Limerick 2m handicap hurdle last month. Strong place claims in this grade.
In good form over hurdles, running well in defeat in a couple of starts at Tramore in November. C&D winner on sole start over the combination and likely to run well once again.
The Milan mares' third of 12 beaten ¾L in a Clonmel handicap hurdle in February look a little of a one-off against a number of desolate efforts either side of the performance. Not to be trusted.
Sole win came over 7f on the Flat for Kevin Ryan in September 2017 but remains a eight-race maiden over hurdles. Well held in two dismal efforts last month and needs significant improvement here.
Distance winner of a Thurles handicap hurdle last month off a 7lb lower mark beaten My Forever Friend 5L. Flattered to deceive at Cork next time beaten over 9L behind Our Jerry later in the month off his new mark.
Modest eight race maiden hurdler and first time cheekpieces failed to spark any encouragement last time out at Fairyhouse in November when falling at the final flight in a well beaten sixth of 14. Looks a tall order on form shown.
Missed more than three years after being pulled up over C&D in 2015. Failed to bid on encouraging comeback run here in January when being well beaten in a couple of handicap hurdles at Clonmel and Cork. Needs a couple of opponents to falter.
Got within 3L of Mick Jazz over hurdles once upon a time but his recent form makes less pleasant reading, including finishing 11th of 13 beaten 35L behind Scotch Quay at Wexford earlier this month. May struggle once again.
Gelding by Salutino out of a Kalanisi mare. Dam unraced sister to bumper winner Kalanisi King. Nothing in three runs as yet for Champion hurdle winning yard. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.
First glimpse of ability when positively ridden last time but he made a number of errors. Probably has too much to find in too many departments.
Formerly with trainer Dermot Weld bought at the Goffs November sale for €25,000. Well held in three career maiden hurdle starts for new connections and hard to place any faith in.
Promise on her first couple of hurdles starts but looks regressive currently and cheekpieces has had no effect on her last couple of starts when last seen in June 2017. Impossible to consider on return to action.
