Solid and consistent in two of his last three starts including finishing second of 12 beaten ½L in a Curragh 6f handicap last month. Capable of a big run if in the mood.
Distance winner who is currently hurtling back down to his last winning mark following a number of dismal efforts over 6f/7f this term. Possibly best watched unless market suggests otherwise.
Filly who got off the mark at the 10th attempt for connections over this trip when landing a Gowran Park handicap last month off a 6lb lower mark. Carries a penalty but far from certain to halt a big effort in this contest.
C&D winner who landing the spoils on his third turf appearance last month off a 6lb lower mark. Looks to be an improving sort and merits plenty of respect despite penalty.
Bated Breath mare who has just one win to her name but ran a promising race on seasonal return when finishing second of nine in a Sligo handicap last month behind Honor Oak before running well in defeat at Listowel recently. Place claims.
Winner of one of her 12 starts overall who has been running well in defeat in a number of starts this term including on latest start at Gowran Park last month. Liable to find a couple stronger in this event.
Not disgraced in three seasonal starts since reappearance last month but may find one or two better handicapped sorts in the field.
Course winner that has also scored over this trip. Running well in defeat in a number of starts on the AW at Dundalk when last seen towards the end of the year. Has placed over C&D and appears on a dangerous mark.
Without any success in five starts on turf but the Epaulette gelding has proceeded to hit the frame on three further occasions. Formerly with trainer Robert Cowell and needs to show significant improvement on second stable start here.
Winner of four of his 18 starts on turf for the Fast Company gelding but recent efforts have been below-par, including over C&D last month, and has not shown enough to be of interest in this company.
Winner of a 6f Fairyhouse maiden over 12 months ago but has been beaten in seven subsequent starts. Appears to need a little more relief from the handicapper before coming in for consideration.
Landed the fourth career win of his career last month in a Navan 5f handicap off a 7lb lower mark. Well held subsequently at the Curragh over this trip and has plenty to find in this contest.
Ran well and caught the eye when coming back from a 272-day break at Gowran Park last month to finish third of 16 beaten 3½L behind the improving My Mystique on stable debut. Worth a check in the market.
Carries solid and consistent form on the AW at Dundalk and ran well in defeat on her sole start on turf to finish fourth of 14 beaten 1¾L on good ground at Down Royal in September. Market likely to reveal expectations.
Best effort came when second on heavy ground at Listowel in September but was below that level in a number of starts subsequently towards the end of the year. Not seen since November and looks up against it here.
The daughter of Invincible Spirits sole victory in 29 starts on turf came over C&D 12 months ago off a 1lb lower mark. Running well in defeat since and looks to have a number of conditions in her favour here.
One from 17 on turf and has been running creditably in a couple of starts last month. Possibly best watched unless market suggests otherwise.
