0-7 over fences and now returns to novice company after showing no improvement for the switch to handicaps. Well-beaten when making seasonal return at Tipperary (2m7f; good) last time, but entitled to improve for that first run in eight months.
Pulled-up on only start over fences over this C&D back in December. In tremendous form at present and was bidding for the hat-trick when fifth in a typically competitive affair at Galway (3m; good) recently. Major player returned to fences.
Fell when running over hurdles on seasonal return at Wexford (3m; good) last month. That was at the fourth, so he didn't really have a proper race. Now make debut over fences but is best watched after showing next to nothing in six hurdle starts.
0-14 over fences and has looked regressive the last twice. Despite running in a better quality contest at Kilbeggan(2m6f; yielding) recently he was beaten a total of 48-lengths into sixth. Not improved for the switch to handicaps lately either.
Bettered chasing debut last time when not beaten far into fourth at Tipperary (2m3f; yielding). Reproduction of that effort would probably be enough to see this half-brother to the smart Ms Parfois make the frame once again.
Makes chasing debut after a fairly productive time over hurdles throughout the last few months. Won over the smaller obstacles over C&D in October which is encouraging, and he could make his presence felt.
Only had the one run over fences but it was a promising one at that when he finished third at Downpatrick (2m7f; yielding). Not completely disgraced on the flat since then and he remains a live player as he returns to chasing.
Introduction to chasing has came in two fairly warm contests, and when returned to hurdles at Limerick (3m; good) most recently, he finished over 12-lengths behind Bye Bye O Bye who he reopposes with over the larger obstacles now. Work to do.
Eight-race maiden. Steps back up in trip after being sent off as a 33-1 shot on just his second start over fences at Roscommon (2m; soft) where he ran in accordance with those odds. This is slightly easier but he has a bit to prove.
Winless in six runs over hurdles and made an uninspiring chase debut at Tipperary (2m3f; yielding) when last seen. Never posed a major threat in maiden/handicap hurdles prior to that earlier this year either so is hard to fancy.
Beaten awfully long way on rules/chasing return at Kilbeggan (2m4f; soft) on Saturday after securing a hat-trick in point-to-points. This isn't as competitive, but he would need to brush up a bit on his jumping to get competitive.
0-12. Unable to show any real improvement since switching stables to these shores. Well-beaten over hurdles at Roscommon (2m4f; soft) last week after unseating his rider at the first fence at Wexford (2m4f; good) the time before that.
Only mare in the line-up. Hasn't cut much ice in three races over fences since she made her debut over the larger obstacles in May. Fell last time out at Killarney (2m5f; good) and is probably best watched until entering handicaps.
