One win from 16 starts in the UK but consistent performer for Archie Watson last year. Lightly raced on turf and not far off previous form on stable and Irish debut. Could easily build on that and be competitive.
Daughter of Kingman left 2018 debut behind when beaten 6L in both maidens this year over further. Dropped in distance for handicap debut and plenty of improvement required. Market support though for strong connections would be interesting.
Didn't seem to be going the right way in maidens and when last on handicap debut but left that all behind when running on well for a close fourth from a fair way back at the Curragh. Extra half furlong should suit and a clear contender.
Son of Vocalised ran well in defeat in two maidens following last year's debut but ran very poorly on Cork's handicap debut in April. Plenty to prove now.
Daughter of Slade Power out of a Fasliyev mare. Ran well when finishing fourth in two of three maidens for Paul Prendergast last year. Makes handicap, season and stable debut over an ideal distance off a very attractive opening mark. Leading hope.
Yet to make any sort of impression in four starts so far and tailed off last on Naas reappearance. Plenty to prove on handicap debut and others look stronger candidates.
Remains a 10-race maiden but ran to a consistent level last season. Disappointing in two runs either side of a solid Navan fourth and wouldn't want any rain. Others look more reliable at present and more required.
Up 4lb for breakthrough success on career start seven over this distance at Leopardstown. Showed good late battling qualities and seems best suited by this trip. Likely to go close once again.
Raced consistently in first four maidens but proved disappointing on final start of last year and again very well beaten in two handicaps this time around. Down 4lb but hard to fancy at present.
Gelded son of Most Improved finished well beaten in first two starts on heavy but was a bit better over this C&D on yielding ground. May improve on handicap and season debut but much more required.
Most promising start from five so far came on soft ground but still struggled to make an impression. Down another 4lb following a second well beaten effort in handicap company and hard to make a case for.
Remains a maiden following five starts and while she hasn't been disgraced in two handicaps this year, it hasn't improved on her maiden form from last year. More needed on turf debut.
Has failed to build on promise of Naas debut last year and disappointing on handicap and season debut over 1m1.5f at this track. Drop in distance should help but plenty to prove now.
Slowly away and ran on with some promise over a mile on handicap debut that suggested more promise. Drop in distance may be a negative though. First Reserve. Declared also as a reserve at Cork on Friday.
