Winner of one of her two starts over C&D, the latest of which came off a 4lb lower mark in October. Beaten on the AW at Dundalk since and may struggle a little of top weight.
Cityscape filly who fetched €60,000 as a juvenile. She has shaped with promise in a number of maiden starts before finishing a dismal 10th of 15 on handicap debut at Killarney when last seen in August. Likely to improve but unlikely to be in the mix
Losing run is now mounting up, standing at 18 but the Bahamian Bounty gelding has been running with credit in a number of starts over the winter on the AW at Dundalk and not disgraced at Cork earlier this month.
Winner over 7f at Cork off a 1lb lower mark in August but has basically struggled in three starts since towards the end of the season. Well below par form looks set to continue.
Vale of York filly well down the pack in a couple of career starts at Navan and Galway, before finishing 10th of 14 beaten over 12L on the AW at Dundalk when last seen in November. Plenty of improvement needed on seasonal return.
Failed to build on a solid run at Navan in September over 1m when disappointing at Thurles when last seen in October. Hard to place any faith in on return.
15-race maiden including suffering 10 defeats on turf. Well held on seasonal return on the AW at Dundalk last month and will need to raise overall profile to play a role here.
Lightly raced son of Sakhee's Secret and not seen since finishing well down the field at Gowran Park 11 months ago. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Goes well on the AW at Dundalk but remains an eight-race maiden on turf. Overall record casts doubt on his ability to get competitive in this contest.
Gelding by Approved out of a Montjeu mare. Well held in three starts last term but plenty of encouragement to be taken from his runner up at Tipperary on Thursday. Needs to keep the consistency going here.
Giant strides taken from three pitiful maiden starts when finishing second of 14 beaten 1L on the AW at Dundalk when last seen in October on handicap debut. Worth a market check in first time tongue strap.
Excelebration filly, cost €7,500 as a yearling. Shaping well enough when not disgraced in a number of starts on the AW at Dundalk. Worth a market check on turf debut with notable jockey booking.
Dundalk winner on the AW but the Choisir filly is without success in five starts on turf. Overall form doesn't warrant support.
Kodiac gelding is closely related to multiple useful winners. Eight race maiden has been well held in a number of handicap efforts including on seasonal bow at Leopardstown earlier in the month.
Well held on four gloomy career starts to date. First time hood unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.
Casamento colt out of a mare who won five times over middle-distances. Dismal efforts in a number of maidens before finishing 15th of 18 beaten 22L on handicap debut at Cork earlier this month. Hard to place any faith in.
Arcano gelding out of a Selkirk mare. Well held in three starts last season over a variety of trip. Unlikely to have improved to the required standard over the winter to play a part here.
Gale Force Ten gelding out of a Amadeus Wolf mare. No immediate promise in big field maidens since making his debut in February. This looks a tough ask on handicap debut.
