Winner of one of his eight starts on the Flat. Sole victory coming in a Dundalk 1m maiden in the AW in March. Pieces of form on turf but overall appears up against it here.
Experienced winner of four of his 19 starts on turf including a win in a Naas handicap over a similar trip in October off a 4lb lower mark. Repeat of form in summer/autumn of last year should have the mare in among the leading players.
Oasis Dream filly who is a half-sister to the very useful Carntop. Not much to shout about in a couple of starts for trainer Ralph Beckett last spring or since joining this yard. Others preferred for win purposes.
Made breakthrough success on start number 12 at Wolverhampton but disappointed off this revised mark at Leicester and Brighton late last season when in the care of trainer Richard Hannon. Looks a tall order on stable debut.
Has reappeared this term in solid and consistent form without getting his head in front. Could be dangerous if getting the run of the race and holds solid place claims in first-time cheekpieces.
Solid and consistent sort on the AW at Dundalk hitting the frame in five of his last six appearances at the track since November. Without a win on turf since landing a Gowran Park handicap over 7f off a 2lb higher mark in October 2017. Place claims.
Usually seen on the AW commuting between Wolverhampton and Dundalk. Landed a Naas 1m handicap last month off a 6lb lower mark beating 15 rivals 1¼L. Repeat of that form should see him in the hunt for more prize money.
Struggling a little of late, winner of one of his 16 starts on turf. Lightly raced in 2018, the gelding ran well in defeat on return to action earlier this month on the AW at Dundalk, but needs plenty more in this company.
Four-race maiden, well beaten over 20L on both turf starts to date on good-to-firm and good-to-yielding ground. Still looking no nearer to a breakthrough success.
Won on the AW at Dundalk over 1m and probably ran up to that form when fourth and sixth on subsequent runs since January. Eight-race maiden on turf, below-par form looks set to continue.
Significant improvement when dropped to this trip in October on the AW at Dundalk and on seasonal debut at Naas last month when finishing second of 18 beaten 1L. Looks an improving sort and merits plenty of respect here.
Modest sort, winner of one of his 12 starts. Drops back to winning mark that saw her land a Roscommon 7f handicap last July. Hasn't shown enough to be of interest stepping up in trip.
11-race maiden, modest 51 rated handicapper for trainer Jamie Osborne and well held in two initial starts for new connections. First time hood unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
