Placed in a 1m maiden at The Curragh (good) last August. Struggled in better races subsequently however and is worth a check in the market on handicap debut.
Debut winner over 6f on good-to-firm ground here 12 months ago. Promising fourth in a 7f handicap at The Curragh (good) on last months handicap debut and is of interest in this contest.
Broke his maiden when victorious by 5L in a good ground 7f event at Fairyhouse earlier this week. Likely to play a leading role with a top jockey booked to ride on handicap debut.
Maiden winner over 7f on good going at Gowran Park early last month. Disappointed as favourite at Naas (6f, good) on handicap debut recently and return to this trip see her in a better light.
Best effort since switched to handicaps came when finishing runner-up in first time blinkers (replaced with a visor here) in a 7f handicap at Limerick (good) earlier this month. Notable runner on this occasion.
Placed on five of her eight starts last year including on good-to-soft ground at Chepstow (7f) last August. Changed yards since and is interesting on handicap and seasonal debut.
Good-to-firm ground maiden winner over 5f at Down Royal last year but held in three starts in handicaps this campaign. More needed than when 2L seventh over this trip at The Curragh (good) last time out.
