Miserly return of one from 18 over hurdles for the Excellent Art gelding. Has been sending out mixed signals in a number of starts since May and has never been the easiest to catch right but holds claims in a weaker contest.
One from eight over hurdles, the Honolulu geldings sole win coming in a Roscommon 2m maiden hurdle three years ago. Well held in two recent starts at Kilbeggan and Bellewstown recently, difficult to make a case for.
Seven-race maiden who looks to be getting the hand of things since finishing well at Thurles in March. Third of 14 beaten 3¾L, the Nathaniel gelding finished of his race well at Roscommon earlier this month and can be a major player here.
Blowing hot and cold in a number of maiden hurdle starts since February and the Scorpion gelding is still looking for a breakthrough success in seven starts over timber.
Winner of two of his 18 starts over hurdles with his last win coming in a Tramore handicap over 2m5f off a 6lb lower mark. Sending out mixed messages in three starts since April and looks in the grip of the handicapper currently.
Winner on the Flat last month of a 2m1f Limerick handicap on good ground but is still looking for his second win over hurdles having his 18th start over timber. No surprise to see him bounce back here.
Ran well at a big price at Cartmel before finishing fourth of 12 beaten 23L at the same venue dropping in trip when last seen in May. Place claims stepping back up to 2m4f.
