Pulled up and last by vast distances since switching from point-to-points in three starts.
25L fifth of 14 at Ballinrobe in her second of two starts shows there is ability and although this may come soon enough she should win races which plenty of these probably won't.
Running well in defeat in an extensive number of bumper starts without success. Never travelling on hurdling debut at Tramore and ponderous jumping held her up at Listowel last week. Big step forward needed.
Fourth of seven beaten 15L on racecourse debut at Cork but failed to build on it with a remote 10th of 11 at Tramore latest where poor visibility made it hard to assess her full performance.
Second-rate performance on rules debut in September 2017 in a Listowel bumper beaten 28L before tailing off at Thurles. Well beaten when unseating at the last on hurdles bow latest after 18 months off.
Hurdles debutant won races at Dundalk in January and March to achieve a rating of 86. Enough ability here then but wins over 6f and 7f so stamina has to be a major concern.
After an 18-month absence she left her lone bumper form a mile behind latest when an excellent second over C&D last month having led over the last. Should come on fitness-wise for that and looks the one they all have to beat here.
Midfield effort at Cork in her sixth start latest arguably her best run to date but even that gives her a mountain to climb just to make the frame.
½L second on hurdles bow suggested wins would flow freely but three runs afterwards proved a disappointment. Back after eight months off here and if she settles (often keen) she should make a bold bid.
Last of four throughout in recent return from almost three years off and form before the said absence was of a modest level too.
Showed ability in bumpers and fifth of 11 and fourth of 11 at Tramore to date form of a similar level. Must improve plenty here if she's to win but a place is an entirely possible outcome.
16/1 second of 17 at Listowel last week represented a major breakthrough and she's have gone closer but for an error when leading two out. No reason she can't replicate that effort so has leading claims here.
20-race maiden (eight over hurdles) returns from 354 days off here. Best form would give her a shout of making the frame but has plenty of question marks too.
Dylan Thomas newcomer. Third foal; half-sister to Listed-placed 7f-1m2f winner Flight To Dubai. Market can provide best guide to expectations.
Half-sister to 3m hurdle winner Our Morris; dam placed 3m hurdle, half-sister to bumper/2m3f-3m1f hurdle/smart chase winner Takagi, 2m7f hurdle/chase winner Cheat The Cheater and 2m4f-3m hurdle/chase winner Victrix Gale. Will need further.
Modest 10-race maiden on the Flat achieving a rating of 78 following her second of six at the Curragh 12 months ago. Still travelling well when unseating in fourth two out on hurdles bow at Listowel so with a clear round here she ought to go well.
20/1 winner of a Clonmel claimer on the Flat two starts back but form over hurdles is desperate and back over timber at the same venue latest she was last of eight.
10th of 12, last of 16 and a fall when in rear her form to date over hurdles so readily dismissed.
Three-race unplaced maiden finished beaten 41L and 50L since pulled up on debut so can't be recommended in any capacity.
10-race Flat maiden whose best form came when second over 1m6f last year. Rating of 49 suggests she will struggle here.
