Cost €42,000 as a three-year-old. Well held on a couple of previous bumper starts for trainer Paul Nolan. Promising second at Thurles this month on debut for new handler puts him in the mix here though failed to build on that last time at Clonmel.
An €11,000 three-year-old, Alkaadhem gelding. Dam fair 2m6f hurdle winner. Well held last month on debut at Clonmel.
Promising debut last summer at Sligo but failed to build on that effort. Hard to fancy first time out since last October.
Disappointing point-to-pointer; unlikely type to make an immediate impression under Rules.
A couple of fair efforts in bumpers gives him an outside chance of finishing in the top three but an unlikely winner.
Gelding by Scorpion out of a Afzal mare. Half-brother to bumper and hurdle winners Brogine and Where's The Hare. Down the field last month at Thurles on debut.
Would be surprising if this mare could get competitive given her performance on her only racecourse start at Punchestown last season.
Little to recommend based on her only point-to-point appearance to date. Others obviously make more appeal.
From a top yard but yet to show a great deal in bumpers at Fairyhouse and Gowran. Still early days but can't fancy her here unless the market speaks in her favour.
