Improving of late, with decent second over 1m2f at Roscommon followed by third over 1m3f at Killarney both off this mark. Blinkers an attempt to eek out little extra needed here.
Dual 1m2½f winner was a shade disappointing latest when sixth of 11 for a Down Royal handicap upped to this trip and left doubts there that he quite stayed. Millswyn appears stable number one.
Built on a series of good efforts when battling to maiden success at the Curragh latest. Handicap debut arrives at a good time then and not easily overlooked here.
14/1 winner but one couldn't fail to have been impressed by the mare's strong galloping make all in a Killarney 1m6f maiden 10 days ago. Interesting now sent handicapping and expecting a bold bid.
Up another 9lb as he bids for a four-timer following wins over 1m½f, 1m2½f and 1m1½f. Longest trip he's faced yet but as a son of a hurdler he ought to have plenty enough stamina and is again highly respected.
1m5f Navan winner was perhaps a shade disappointing latest when third on handicap debut at Limerick over this trip considering he was an odds-on fav. Still however merits maximum respect here for in form yard.
Handicap debutant yet to win but comes here after good thirds at Tipperary and Ballinrobe. Mileage in this mark but against a whole host of recent winners he faces a stern examination.
8½L fourth to Halimi in third and most recent maiden at the Curragh so even now 4lb better off she makes little appeal.
Ran career best to finish runner-up in 1m2f handicap (Navan, yielding) in April. Had a break before midfield return at Gowran but can do better now although others more compelling cases.
1m Leopardstown winner in May held twice since in handicaps over similar distances but now goes up markedly in trip and pedigree offers optimism he can stay. Market support would be notable.
