Six-race maiden hurdler, needs to rediscover his form of December when second of 16 at Naas. Yard hold a 57% win and place strike rate with their maiden hurdlers at this meeting in the last four years.
Five-race maiden who deserves a change of luck. The Lord Du Sud gelding has hit the frame in his last four starts over hurdles and can produce another solid effort here.
Without success in five hurdle starts when posting a number of disappointing efforts since returning to the track in June. Handicapper relents but still plenty of work to be done.
Ran a career best when finishing third of 15 beaten 1½L in a Kilbeggan handicap hurdle over 2m4f earlier this month. Further improvement expected.
Winning point-to-pointer who was last of ten on bumper debut and has produced a couple of dour maiden hurdle efforts, including when last seen in March. Others preferred.
Scorpion gelding out of a Dr Massini mare. Pulled up on sole point-to-point start when last seen in December and unlikely to be troubling the judge on debut.
Generally has disappointed in four bumper starts to date but can be expected to be fully tuned up for hurdling debut. Leading yard hold a 36% strike rate with their maiden hurdlers at this meeting since 2015.
Three starts in Irish point-to-points only yielded a runner-up slot on her last start in that realm. Last seen over two years ago representing the Fergal O'Brien yard and is difficult to fancy on return.
Daughter of Vinnie Roe out of an Old Vic mare. Useful form in the point-to-point ranks and market likely to reveal expectations on hurdling debut.
Six-race maiden in bumpers, the mare finished seventh of 20 beaten over 12L on hurdling debut at Punchestown in June, before a couple more poor efforts since. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.
Unseated rider early on in sole point-to-point start and struggled on heavy ground at Tramore (2m) on Rules debut in December. Tongue tie tried for first time following a break.
Pulled-up and unseated rider on two starts so far in the point-to-point field before finishing last of 18 when tailed off in a Limerick bumper last month.
10-race maiden who has posted a couple of career best efforts over the larger obstacles and in a Sligo novice hurdle last month. Enters calculations.
