Been in reasonable form on the AW but struggled in handicaps lately. Worth a try back in a maiden but already exposed as very ordinary and has a stiff test giving weight to younger and more progressive rivals.
Well held in both previous starts and big improvement now needed. Qualifies for a mark after this but unlikely he's one to follow from here.
Showed some improvement from his debut run when fifth of 15 at Gowran Park earlier this month; the drop in trip might help but improvement still required. Can make the running.
Well beaten in both starts before now and hard to recommend on the evidence available.
Debut ran wasn't devoid of promise but the colt did drop out tamely 2f from the finish and needs a big step forward to get into contention this time.
Decent claims on these terms on the best of his AW efforts; wasn't beaten far back on turf at Naas earlier this month and will be suited by this additional furlong. Worth considering.
A well bred filly that has a live chance on the official figures; showed improvement from her seasonal bow when fourth at Leopardstown earlier this month. Player.
Comes here on the back of her best effort to date when she finished a very close second in a large field at The Curragh. Holding her form well and entitled to be thereabouts again. Shortlisted.
Wasn't disgraced on handicap debut last time out but has a bit to find with Chamrousse on a literal reading of the form and might just have to settle for a minor role here.
Not shown much so far and plenty to prove back on turf and over this trip for the first time.
Well beaten on debut at Limerick in April and would need to take a huge step forward on that effort to even make the frame.
