Won twice last season (1m3f and 1m4½f) and remained largely in good order until final two starts when she was totally out of sorts. Dwelt at the start on reappearance at Leopardstown earlier this month and needs to improve here.
Winner of three of her 21 starts on the Flat but has just the sole handicap win to her name. Well held towards the end of last season and may need the run back.
Below par 97-rated handicap hurdler who has been well held in a number of starts over timber since the turn of the year. Won a Gowran Park handicap over a similar trip in October off a 6lb lower mark but looks up against it here.
Nothing of note in four dismal displays over a variety of trips since making her debut at the Curragh in August. Tough ask on seasonal debut and has plenty to prove at present.
Big Bad Bob filly cost €15,000 as a yearling, half-sister to multiple winners over variety of trips. Nothing of note in two starts on turf including a 16½L defeat at Navan when last seen in September. Others make more appeal .
Well held over hurdles recently and remains just one from 14 on the Flat. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Made almost all to beat Invincible Queen in a Dundalk handicap on the AW last month off a 4lb lower mark. Beaten since and remains without a win on the Flat from 23 starts on turf. Impossible to fancy against these rivals.
Disappointing in three maiden before improving to finish sixth of 18 beaten 4L on her third handicap appearance when last seen in October at Galway. Needs to improve again but cannot be completely ruled out.
Generally well held in a series of dismal efforts including finishing a long way down the field on both handicap starts to date. Not seen since August and likely to find it tough going here on return.
One from 13 starts on the Flat for this Born To Sea gelding. Has the ability but needs to bounce back in a big way to have a say here.
Five-race maiden but did fare a bit better after over a year absence on handicap and stable debut in November before improving to finish second of 16 running a big race in defeat behind Jon Ess at Cork earlier this month. Leading player.
Beaten 92L tailed off on latest start over hurdles at Ballinrobe when last seen in September. 11-race maiden on the Flat hasn't shown enough to be of interest in first time tongue tie.
Modest 94-rated handicap hurdler who remains a 12-race maiden on the Flat including a 33L defeat on last start on the level in October. Likely to find better handicapped sorts lurking.
Nine-race maiden with a basement rating and is due to drop to a mark of 41 in future races. Easily passed over.
