Well beaten in three starts in bumpers and it's been a similar story over hurdles so far. Makes handicap debut back down in trip and hard to recommend on what he's shown to date.
Still a maiden after 13 starts but showed a much improved effort at Wexford last week, keeping on well to finish second of 14. That was her handicap debut and may have more to give here on just her second hurdles start of the year.
Yet to win in 11 starts and he's shown very little in maidens on his last two runs. Drop back in trip may help but others have more pressing claims.
Won an Irish point-to-point and impressive when winner at Clonmel over hurdles in 2018 from a 6lb lower mark. Hit and miss since and well beaten on the Flat last time but a repeat of her previous second over hurdles could see her in the shake-up.
Sole win in 22 starts came in a bumper back in 2016. Shaped well on her reappearance last time though and she's a player if she comes on for that run here given that some of her better efforts have come on decent ground.
Over two years without a win and still above his last winning handicap mark. Came on from his reappearance when fourth of 11 at Downpatrick last time but needs another step forward and not the most reliable type.
A maiden after 14 career starts (six hurdles). Ran a big race over C&D two runs ago though and showed that was no fluke with another placed effort last time out; drop back in trip in his favour and can go well here.
Yet to win in six starts over hurdles but posted a respectable effort on his second start in a handicap when second of 15 at Tramore last time. Didn't build on that last month though and others preferred.
Sole win over hurdles came all the way back in 2015. Has run some fair races in defeat for this yard but hard to recommend on his two more recent efforts.
Has won on the Flat and improved from a trio of maiden hurdle efforts when third of 16 on handicap debut last time. His jumping isn't always fluent but he's not without place claims if he can build on latest run.
Virtually tailed off on all eight of her starts (four on the Flat) and very difficult to make a case for her here on return to hurdles. Handicap debut.
Tailed off or has failed to finish on all six of his starts, including handicap debut last time out and hard to build any sort of case for here.
Shaped with some promise at times on the Flat but hasn't shown anything in three starts over hurdles. Handicap debut but others make more appeal.
Won back-to-back races over hurdles in 2017 but hasn't won since and tailed off when returning from a 100-day absence at Downpatrick last time out.
Yet to win in 22 starts (15 hurdles) and has failed to build on the promise shown on two runs this year with his starts next time out; others preferred.
Has finished tailed off on all five starts including two runs on the Flat. Well beaten at Wexford last time and makes handicap debut here.
Yet to as much as place in 11 starts and failed to beat a rival home on the Flat last time. Much more needed.
