Dual winner including over this C&D but finished well beaten over 7f at Dundalk on sole start in 2018. Probably best watched on return from well over a year off the track.
Good fourth in a 7f maiden at Fairyhouse (good-to-yielding) on debut in September. Struggled twice this campaign however and interesting to see how he performs on handicap debut following a short break.
Winner of a handicap at Bellewstown (1m, good) on his penultimate start and finished a good second over 7f at Roscommon (good) five days later. Notable runner off a mark 9lb higher than for her latest success.
Good third in a 7f handicap at The Curragh (good) last month and drop in trip should suit following a 10L fifth over 1m at Bellewstown (good) subsequently.
Returned from a break with a C&D victory on good ground just under a month ago. Fair fifth off a 6lb higher mark at Roscommon (7f, good) subsequently and is of interest once more.
Dual winner over 1m at Dundalk earlier this year and respectable efforts at that venue on two most recent starts. Worth a check in the market on first turf start in nearly a year.
Placed on seasonal debut at Navan (5f, good) in March but struggled in three subsequent starts and probably best watched at present.
Winning for the first time on turf when successful by a nose over an extended 6f at Limerick (good) earlier this month. Raised 3lb for that victory and likely to play a leading role on this occasion.
Best effort in three maiden starts came when finishing sixth over an extended 1m at Galway (soft) last October. Make his handicap and seasonal debut in this contest.
Successful by 3L in a 7f handicap at Dundalk in May. Well below that form in two starts on turf subsequently however. Others hold stronger claims.
Placed third in a 7f maiden claimer at Roscommon (soft) in first time blinkers (retained since) last month. Well held on debut for this yard at Bellewstown (1m, good) last time out however.
C&D winner finished a good fourth over this trip at Dundalk in October last year. Struggled in two starts at the same venue earlier this season however and interesting to see how he fares on return from a break.
Fair 5L fourth in a 7f handicap at Limerick (good) earlier this month. Races off a 2lb lower mark here and has won off higher marks in the past.
Maiden after six starts and finished well held upped to 1m2f at Naas (good) last time out. Probably best watched at present.
