The fitting of blinkers in the geldings last couple of starts have only brought about a modicum of improvement. Probably best watched on first start over the larger obstacles for four years.
Sending out mixed signals in a number of starts over hurdles since March. Could turn out to be one of the more intriguing contenders on chasing debut.
Off the mark for connections over hurdles at the fifth time of asking when landing a Kilbeggan handicap hurdle over 2m earlier this month. Market likely to be the best guide on chasing bow.
Modest 108-rated handicap hurdler who possibly ran as well as could be expected on chasing debut at Kilbeggan earlier this month when sent off a odds of 66/1. Came up against Robin De Carlow that day and looks a possible future prospect.
Has been sending out mixed messages in a number of starts over hurdles since February. Has first-time tongue tie fitted for chasing debut and worth a check in the market.
Chasing career has not got off to the best of starts finishing well down the field on debut at Wexford in April before falling three out , when still in touch, in a Tramore beginners contest last month. A good effort would not surprise.
Modest 106-rated handicap hurdler who looked a little vulnerable on chasing debut at Kilbeggan last month finishing 50L adrift of the winner, Put The Kettle On. Can be expected to improve for that run representing respected connections.
Tough and genuine sort who was in good form between August and November last term over hurdles. Lying third of nine when unseating rider at the second last on chasing debut in a Tramore beginners contest last month. Needs a clear round.
Off the mark over hurdles at the eighth attempt when landing a Limerick maiden over 2m6f last month. Market possibly best guide on debut over the larger obstacles.
Improving 114-rated handicap hurdler. Daughter of Gold Well makes her chasing debut here for respected trainer/jockey combination with market likely to dictate chances.
Poor form in a number of starts for bargain basement 85-rated handicap hurdler. Makes little appeal on chasing debut based on what the mare has shown for connections so far.
