Was in fantastic form in 2018 with four wins going her way which meant she rose up the weights to a mark of 115. Has been dropped 1lb since her latest effort at Downpatrick (2m3f) where she was fourth of seven. Interesting over this trip.
Was successful twice in 2018, with his last win coming at Wexford (2m4f) and since then has run consistently well without success. Was third of nine on his return to action at Downpatrick (2m3f). Cheekpieces on for first time. Leading player.
Won twice over this distance last year in her own age group. Has struggled since then in handicap company, where she has been well-beaten on her last starts, including at Ballinrobe (2m½f) when ninth of 11. May need more help from handicapper.
0-5 over hurdles but did go close at Clonmel over 2m1f when second of 18 back in September 2017. Has been jumping fences recently but with little success. May still struggle off this handicap mark so others are preferred.
Remains a maiden after six starts over hurdles where she has been expensive to follow. She showed some promise last year as she hit the frame on four occasions. Needs to bounce back from when seventh of 12 at Bellewstown (2m4f). One to consider.
Has been successful twice over hurdles but those wins came back in 2017. Was fifth of six in a Listed contest last time at Killarney (2m1f), beaten 56l. This assignment is much easier, however, others are preferred as she has something to prove.
0-8 over hurdles where his last attempt came in May 2018 at Wexford (2m) when he was 11th of 13. Has been campaigned on the Flat recently without any success. Down 7lb since last hurdles run but has to find some of his old form to be in the mix.
Still a maiden after 19 races. Does have six second -place finishes though, including one this season when he was runner-up in a big field contest at Tipperary (2m). Needs to bounce back from run last time at Down Royal (2m4f). Each-way chance.
His sole victory in 30 career starts came at Ballinrobe (2m1½f) back in July 2017. Has been disappointing in his three runs so far this year but he is now stepping back down to 2m which should suit him better. Each-way claims.
A maiden after 17 races and has not featured over hurdles since September 2017. Made his return to action last month on the Flat at Hamilton (1m5f) where he was fifth of 10 on first run for new yard. Keep an eye for any market confidence behind him.
Still a maiden after 11 races in her career. She has yet to improve for going over hurdles following some modest Flat form, with her latest attempt coming at Down Royal where she was seventh of nine over the extended 2m trip. Others preferred.
Is a maiden after five starts over hurdles but was fancied to get his opening success last time over obstacles when third of 11 at Wexford (2m) as the 5/1 favourite. Has been running well on the Flat recently so he should be fit. One for shotlist.
