Scored over C&D on Tuesday on good ground running off a 6lb lower mark beating 15 rivals by the shortest of margins. Life more difficult under a penalty but capable of another bold bid.
Nine-race maiden has been well held in a couple of starts since returning to action in April. Still looking no nearer to breakthrough success.
Off the mark for connections at the 13th time of asking landing a Ballinrobe 1m1f contest on yielding to soft ground off a 4lb lower mark. Modest form in a couple of starts since of revised mark and more needed in this contest.
Won at the third attempt, winning a Limerick handicap over 1m in June off a 5lb lower mark. Ran freely when last of 16 over C&D on Tuesday and worth another chance in returning hood.
Yet to run a bad race for this yard and a head second at Naas when collared right at the wire before a staying on third of 10 at Killarney last month are looking career best's. Should go well from favourable draw.
13-race maiden ran well in defeat to finish fourth of 16 beaten 1½L behind Make A Challenge off a similar mark over C&D on Tuesday. A repeat of that effort would herald another bold bid.
Winner of two of his 14 Flat starts on turf. Gallant run on Tuesday behind One Cool Poet but will need plenty of luck in running in first-time cheekpieces from negative draw.
One from 16 starts on turf but the doughty filly has hit the frame on a further eight occasions including when coming with a wet sail to run Galtee Mist to a head over C&D on Monday. Claims if overcoming slightly negative draw.
Noe racing 2lb lower than last winning mark. Fairyhouse third latest a big step up on poor recent efforts so question mark now is whether he can follow it up.
Won one of his 23 races for John Ryan and is currently 2lb lower than last winning mark. Last of 15 beaten 11L on stable debut making no impression before 2f out. Others more appealing on the balance of recent sorties.
Winner of two of his 18 starts on turf and was not disgraced on Tuesday here finishing behind One Cool Poet over 1m½f. Can go well but still appears to be in the handicappers grip.
Solid and consistent sort running well in defeat in the sprint over 6f/7f without getting his head in front. Losing run is mounting up and handicap mark is dropping but has a dissenting draw to overcome.
Vocalised gelding well held in three career starts to date running between 7f and 1m. Needs vast amount of improvement to be involved at the business end of proceedings.
Four-race maiden tried over a variety of trips ranging from 5f to 1m. One to watch in the market on handicap debut representing yard who have saddled two winners and a couple of placed runners in the last eight years.
Second Reserve: Modest seven-race maiden when in the care of Newmarket trainer Luke McJannett. Unlikely to be troubling the judge if making the line-up.
