Winner over 1m at Bellewstown (good-to-firm) last July. Disappointed on two of three subsequent starts and probably best watched on seasonal reappearance.
Well beaten sixth in a seven runner 5f handicap at Tipperary (soft) on seasonal debut earlier this month. Likely to have improved for the run.
Placed on all three starts this campaign most recently when beaten a nose in a 6f maiden at Sligo (good) last month. Races off a mark 8lb higher than when a neck second at The Curragh (6f, yielding) on her penultimate start.
Good short-head second in a 7f handicap at Leopardstown (good) earlier this month. Raised 2lb for that effort and is of interest in this contest.
Gelded in November and well beaten in three subsequent starts. Others make more appeal with hood tried for the first time.
Decent 5L fifth in a big field handicap over an extended 5f at Navan (good-to-yielding) at the start of this month. Market support would be notable.
C&D winner finished a promising 7¼L fifth in a 16 runner 7f handicap at Gowran Park (good-to-firm) on last months seasonal debut. Interesting to see how he fares.
Improved on seasonal debut when finishing 3L fourth in a soft ground 7f handicap at Roscommon earlier this week. Has won off higher marks in the past.
Gelded following a heavy defeat at Killarney (1m, good) last month and this trip looks more suitable than the 5f he raced over at Down Royal (good-to-yielding) last time out.
Held in four starts this campaign and handicap mark is falling as a result. Races off a mark 5lb lower than for his most recent victory.
Struggled in two starts since joining this stable most recently in a 5f handicap at Navan (good-to-yielding) last week. Others hold stronger claims.
Recorded her first turf success when winning by 2L over 7f at Roscommon (soft) earlier this week. One for the shortlist racing off the same mark in this contest.
Victorious on the AW over 6f at Dundalk in early April. Disappointed over 5f at Naas (good) last time out however and others make more appeal.
Six race maiden was beaten 9L in a 1m2f handicap at Fairyhouse (good-to-firm) on stable and seasonal debut last month. More needed down in trip.
