Sole success was an AW maiden at Dundalk over this trip in 2016, but enough positives from last year's efforts to warrant a close look back from a break starting out for new handler on this career-low rating.
Shed maiden tag at the 16th time of asking last month at Sligo, battling on gamely. Raised 3lb and will likely have to pull out a bit more tackling 1m4f for the first time.
Behind Maunganui (fourth) at Sligo last month, tends to give his running but win-ratio of 1-20 tells its own story, likely to be thereabouts late on again however.
Clodovil filly, seems in possession of fairly modest ability at this stage, she sports first-time blinkers here and will have to improve on what she has done so far to be winning.
Dual-purpose performer, won a Gowran Park claimer in May (1m1½f, good to firm; 12-1) and since run fair race in 1m5f Leopardstown handicap on first start for this handler. Runs from same mark and cannot be crossed off with certainty.
Had some of these behind when finding only one too good at Leopardstown (1m5f, good; 13-2) last time, suggesting he's on a workable mark. Inched up 1lb in the ratings and should be able to have a say once more.
Lawman mare now two years without a win, though has run some good races under Ben Coen in that time. Entitled to have needed the comeback at Tipperary and possible she'll offer more on this occasion.
Much-experienced former C&D winner has been waiting a while between drinks (18 runs) and was well held last week at Limerick over this trip. First-time visor goes on here, must raise game but not discounted.
Ran well enough in claiming company at Sligo last time out, though that form likely to leave him well shy in this company; others have more pressing claims of success.
Filly was just holding on to score at Bellewstown (1m4f, good; 7-1) when getting first success (seventh start) nine days ago. 6lb higher now, chance that she will have more to offer with that win banked.
Intello filly who is without success in 10 starts now, having failed to muster a serious challenge in three starts this season. Hard to make a strong case on the formbook.
Mark is sliding quickly, owing to succession of poor runs since going handicapping. New headgear on this afternoon, with plenty of improvement demanded.
Doesn't have much in the formbook and has tended to be awkward in starting stalls at times. Latest Bath effort (1m3½f, firm; 16-1) leaves plenty to be desired and can only be watched for now. Blinkers tried here.
Now a 13-race maiden have unseated rider last time at Bellewstown (1m4f, good; 40-1), best left to it until some discernible form is shown.
Elusive Pimpernel remains a maiden after six runs, she showed a bit more promise last time at Naas (1m2f, good; 25-1) without managing to trouble the judge and will need to improve drastically on previous C&D form.
Just 1-30 in her career, win coming on AW at Dundalk in 2016, thought last-time-out Limerick second over this sort of trip was encouraging and entitled to be in the shake-up with a repeat effort as Colin Keane takes over on board.
Dual-purpose performer with 0-21 career record, ran well over C&D last month and another solid if unspectacular effort since at Limerick since. Could pop up to win a race of this nature somewhere soon.
Holy Roman Emperor filly, beaten out of sight on reappearance in Tipperary maiden over this sort of trip for the first time, doesn't hold an obvious claims now tackling a handicap for the first time.
