Ran twice on the Flat. Was third of 17 on his debut at Tipperary (1m4½f), while he then came home fifth of 14 at Killarney (1m6f). Interesting on his opening start over hurdles. Hood on for first time. Keep an eye out for any support in the market.
Failed to make an impressive in five runs on the Flat. Was 13th of 17 on his last outing at Tipperary (1m4½f) when going off at 25/1. His dam was a 2m hurdle winner. Tongue-tie on for first time here. One to watch for now.
Has yet to beat a rival in three runs on the Flat, with his latest run coming at Ballinrobe in a 13 runner field over the extended 1m1f trip. Very difficult to make a case for on what is his debut over hurdles.
Has been a long way down the field on his three Flat starts where he has yet to be fancied in the market. Was last of 12 on his latest attempt at the Curragh (1m4f) where he didn't stay the trip. Hard to make a case for.
Produced his best run of his Flat career last time at Yarmouth (1m3½f) when fourth of 11. Is interesting on his opening hurdles start on what is his first run for new yard. Market may give a clue on his chances.
Has some decent form on the Flat where he had five starts, with the pick of his results being his second place finish of four at Ballinrobe (1m1½f) two starts back. One to watch on his hurdles debut.
Was well-beaten on all seven of his Flat starts. Could only finish eighth of 15 on his last outing at Killarney (1m3f). Is a half-brother to Romanor who won over hurdles (2m). Needs to improve a lot in what will be first run over obstacles.
Milan gelding who is a brother to Martello Tower who was smart over hurdles and fences. Is also a half-brother to Martello Park who scored in a bumper and over hurdles. Interesting newcomer who could run well on debut.
Was successful on the Flat at Cork (1m) earlier this year. Was eighth of 15 on his first run for his new yard last time at Galway (7f). Half-brother to Bletchley Castle who was smart over hurdles. One for shortlist.
Failed to make the frame in five starts on the Flat, including in his last two runs which were in handicap company. He was 15th of 18 on his latest appearance at Fairyhouse (7f). Hurdles debut here. Others preferred.
Was successful last year as a two-year-old on the AW at Dundalk (7f). Has been a little disappointing on his two starts on turf this season, including when 12th of 15 at Killarney (1m). Has to be respected from top yard.
Balko filly whose dam was placed in a 2m hurdle contest in France. She is a half-sister to Analifet who stayed up to 2m4f over hurdles and was quite smart. Wears the hood on her debut here. One to watch for now.
Won on the Flat over 7f at Gowran Park as a two-year-old last season. Was third of 16 last time at Leopardstown over 1m7f where she proved her stamina. Big contender here on her opening run over hurdles.
Battle of Marengo filly who is a half-sister to multiple winners on the Flat, including Noble Dancer who was successful over 5f. It is interesting that connections are heading straight to hurdles. Keep an eye for any market support on debut.
Was third of seven on the AW at Dundalk (6f) otherwise her form on the Flat has been poor, particularly since joining handicap company. Was 14th of 18 last time at Fairyhouse (6f). Needs to improve a lot on hurdles debut.
Has finished a long way down the field on all seven of her Flat races. Her form this year has not improved, with her latest outing coming at Killarney (1m3f) where she was 13th of 15. Others appeal more.
