In spellbinding form on the Dundalk AW at the beginning of the year before proving to be a major disappointment on return to turf at this track. That was a hotly contested race and she should find this assignment easier. Not one to write off.
Enjoyed a productive three-year-old season last year and comeback at the Curragh (1m; good to yielding) was slightly underwhelming last month. May have needed the run and the trip would definitely have been on the sharp side.
Most exposed runner in this field who was in good form on the AW at the beginning of the year, but has looked laboured on turf of late. Vulnerable to younger rivals in this contest and will be more of interest when returning to AW.
Got off to the perfect start for this new stable who do so well with similar types when winning on seasonal return at Cork (1m2f; good). Up just 3lb for that victory and with further improvement expected he should run another big race.
Has ran over a variety trips ranging from 1m-2m recently. Returned to something like his best when third at Navan (1m5f; good to yielding) at the start of the month. Major player if building on that.
Has struggled since being hit with a 10lb rise in the handicap for winning in good style at Gowran Park (1m1f; good to yielding) last year. Mark has only dropped 3lb in five runs since then and others look better treated.
Desperately struggling for form of late. Given a 76-day break since finishing seventh at Dundalk (1m4f; standard) and cannot be recommended off the back of that.
Progress has somewhat stalled since switched to handicaps. Must improve markedly for latest eighth at this track last week. Drops down to 1m2f from 1m5f. Unexposed after just the four career starts, so still has time to get back on track.
12-race maiden who seemed to be getting the hang of things at the backend of last season. However, she has become regressive lately and a major revival is required for her to feature in any way. Best watched.
Has never been a factor in four runs over hurdles since switching to this yard. This represents his first assignment on the flat for this stable and could run well at large odds. Must improve upon recent efforts though.
