Modest 85-rated handicap hurdler who remains an nine race maiden. Form overall has been below par of late and is unlikely to be improving at his age.
One from three in the point-to-point ranks and a useful 113-rated novice hurdler. Third of 11 beaten 9¾L on chasing debut in a Limerick 2m3½f contest last month. Genuine sort who should go well again.
Couldn't quite build on his taking Ayr victory when finishing down the field in subsequent runs at Perth and at the Punchestown festival earlier this month. Plenty of ability and an interesting recruit to the chasing game.
Modest 109-rated handicap hurdler who remains a 15-race maiden. Well held in three starts over timber last month and has plenty to prove on chasing introduction.
Well held in sole point-to-point run, and disappointing in three subsequent maiden hurdle starts. Improved performance when finishing third of 12 beaten a little over 5L on chasing debut in a Cork beginners contest last month. Leading claims.
Chosen Well gelding is an eight-race maiden under rules. Ran well in defeat on sole start over the larger obstacles finishing second of nine at Ludlow when in the care of trainer Henry Oliver 16 months ago. Worth a market check on debut.
In good form last summer including wins at Down Royal and Limerick for trainer Henry De Bromhead. Well held on first start for new yard last month and best watched on chasing debut here.
Modest 80 -rated, 12-race maiden over hurdles. Well beaten and no impression on chasing introduction at Clonmel in March behind Littlestickrubarb. Tough ask on second start over fences.
Experienced eight-race maiden over the larger obstacles but has run well in defeat previously and finished third of eight beaten over 12L in a Tipperary handicap earlier this month. Too early to be writing off just yet.
Modest 115-rated handicap hurdler did not made the greatest start over the larger obstacles pulling up on his first two starts, before improving to run well in defeat in a couple of subsequent starts, jumping with more fluency. Shortlisted.
Fair jumps pedigree and represents top yard but has shown very little in four hurdle starts to date. Likely to be well-prepped for chasing introduction and worthy of a check in the market in first-time cheekpieces.
Solid and consistent over hurdles gaining a 111-rating in the process. Market likely to reveal expectations on chasing debut.
