Tipperary winner last August but badly out of sorts since and although this represents a drop in class, this veteran needs to roll back the years under his inexperienced rider.
Vastly improved handicapper last summer for Jim Bolger with four wins improving 24lb along the way. Now with Paul Nolan, she has had a recent spin over hurdles so shouldn't be lacking on the fitness front.
Didn't cut much ice on comeback run at The Curragh recently but entitled to need that after 6 months off and was a model of consistency last season so no surprise if he leaves that form behind.
Still to win on turf. Found 1m5f too far last time but his second to Red Striker prior to that reads well and with cheek pieces added now he should be competitive.
Back on the same mark as when scoring over 1m here last August but has shown nothing since and has stamina to prove as well as form.
Blinkers back on having tried cheek pieces last time when well beaten second in a three runner race. Hasn't really gone on from his juvenile days and longer trip now tried so not one to give up on yet.
Best efforts were over 1m so no surprise the drop down to 7f didn't work out on latest. Now goes up to 1m2f and if able to build on the form of his penultimate run he would be in the shake up.
Still a maiden having tried various trips and from 5lb out of the weights, he isn't easy to make a case for.
