Four-race maiden well beaten on his sole start on turf finishing last of 16 beaten 100L at Navan when last seen in April. Easily dismissed.
Off the mark at Gowran three starts back and ran quite respectably twice since including sixth to Calling Time latest. Place chances in this contest.
Six-race maiden on turf with career best efforts coming over this trip. Entitled to have designs on prize money in this race.
Gelding by Camacho running well in defeat in three career starts to date. First-time cheekpieces to assist on return to this trip.
Dropped to a mark of 47 in May on his final start for trainer Mark Johnston. Both career wins have come on an AW surface and market likely to be the best guide on stable debut here.
Posted a career best effort on his latest start when finishing third of 15 beaten 5¾L in a Bellewstown 1m maiden early last month. Can be expected to improve and one to note in this contest.
Winner of one of his eight career starts with the win coming on his second turf start at Fairyhouse last month off a 5lb lower mark. Merits plenty of respect here.
Seven-race maiden on turf the Alhebayeb colt has finished in the runner-up position on his last two starts at Tipperary ans Killarney, both last month. Bit more needed but enters calculations.
Comes here on a hat-trick of wins following a double at Gowran Park and at Leopardstown over this trip both in June. Yard among the winners this week and one for the shortlist.
Running well in defeat in a couple of starts when not beaten far at the Curragh and Gowran Park in June. Step up in trip expected to put the six-race maiden in the mix.
Did not appreciate the step up in trip at Sligo in May with the 10-race maiden posting many of her best efforts over this trip. Could be a danger in first-time cheekpieces.
Without success in five starts to date but posted an improved and career best effort when second of 16 at Limerick over a similar trip in June. Penalty for that run may not be enough to halt further progress.
Nothing of note in four career starts to date including a heavy defeat at Cork in April before finishing eighth of 12 at Limerick last month. Others look more convincing.
Likable type who has shown a steady rate of progression to date in four starts this season before disappointing at Ballinrobe last month when stepped up in trip. More needed but not one to put a line through.
Step up in trip at Fairyhouse on second handicap start did not work and the Casamento gelding will be more suited over this distance. Will need to raise overall profile to play a role here.
Five-race maiden has finished down the field on both starts for current connections since the move from Brian Meehan. Plenty to prove and looks up against it.
First Reserve: Sent off at big prices on his last two starts running accordingly on each occasion. Well below par form set to continue if making the race.
