Six-race maiden usually seen on the AW at Dundalk. Well held and never nearer on sole turf start on the Flat at Leopardstown in October and others hold stronger claims in this contest.
Pretty uninspiring efforts in four career starts to date including a couple of defeats at Gowran Park and Naas last month. First time hood unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Better form has come on the AW at Dundalk with the New Approach mare being well held on both turf starts to date on the Flat. Not in the form required to play a pert.
11-race maiden, generally well held in five turf starts on the Flat. Handicap mark continues to fall but hard to be confident at present.
Winner over C&D in September off a 3lb lower mark, beating 16 rivals and subsequent winner, Mystique Heights, 1½L. Beaten since but one of a number of viable combatants back at this trip.
Without success in three starts on turf, last seen finishing 27L adrift of Shakespear'sgalley over 1m4½f at Down Royal last month. Others more appealing on balance but worth a market check from in form yard.
Running well in defeat in three career Flat starts on turf since April. Recent efforts suggest plenty of improvement and is approached with a great deal of respect.
Has disappointed in three career starts over a variety of trips to date since making his debut at Clonmel in April. Makes little appeal on the balance what the Compton Place gelding has shown so far.
Six-race maiden on turf and recent effort at Gowran Park on seasonal debut over 1m does not trigger much enthusiasm for the filly stepping back up in trip.
Winner of four of his 28 starts on turf with his last win coming in a Hamilton 1m½f handicap in September on soft ground off a 2lb lower mark. First time visor unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.
One win from 12 starts on turf does not spark much enthusiasm but the Camacho gelding has been running well in defeat in a number of starts since last month. Goes well over this trip and entitled to make the shortlist.
One win from eight turf starts on the Flat and ran well on latest start over a similar trip at Tipperary earlier this month. Very much a leading player with more rain.
Useful 108-rated handicap hurdler of late but without a win or a place in seven starts on the Flat including three defeats on turf. Last of 13 beaten 37L on latest start at Navan last month and other preferred.
One from 16 on the Flat for useful 106-rated handicap hurdler. Not disgraced in a couple of starts on the level in April but step back up in trip may not suit.
