Won twice as a juvenile (7f), also displaying his quirks when running out at Nottingham in November 2017; badly out of sorts from 2018 onward; very disappointing when last seen out at Newcastle in June; hard to get excited about.
Vocalised filly, yet to add to her maiden victory at Bellewstown over 12 months ago; better effort last time out at Naas when third in a big field handicap; chance on best of her form but may prefer a sounder surface.
Has been wonderfully consistent this year, winning two big field handicaps at Ayr including last time out in July. Up 4lbs for that latest victory but certainly one to note.
Solid and consistent sort who has running well in defeat in races over 6f/7f without getting his head in front. Losing run is mounting up but handicap mark is dropping. Each way prospect.
Still an unexposed sprinter having previously raced at trips up to 1m; off the mark when scoring at Navan (5f) in June before running well at The Curragh (5f) earlier this month. Another with solid claims stepping up in trip.
Took advantage of her British handicap mark to narrowly land 5f Hamilton handicap on latest start. Up 5lb for that win which makes life tougher but no reason why she will not give a good account of herself.
Gelded in November and well beaten in four subsequent starts. Others make more appeal despite tumbling down the handicap.
Improved on her seasonal debut run at Fairyhouse when landing the spoils in a 7f Gowran Park handicap in July. Creditable effort last time out to finish second in a big field handicap at Naas. Up again in the handicap but one to consider.
Sole career success has come on the AW at Dundalk with the gelding still looking no nearer to a breakthrough victory from ten starts on turf.
Has been consistent since winning at Sligo in June but now 9lb higher than winning that race and while capable, does look in the handicapper's grip.
Not disgraced in three of his last four starts but has a habit of looking a little one pace in the closing stages in a number of his races. Not the most reliable of sorts and others hold stronger claims.
Failed to figure in six starts for two different trainers so far. Returning from a long absence and others hold stronger claims on debut for this stable unless market speaks in his favour.
Struggled somewhat off a revised mark at Tipperary last time out having previously won well at Naas in early August; could be same story here.
Generally a consistent sort who now looks favourably handicapped. Arguably better over five furlongs; tried in a first-time visor today and can not easily be ruled out.
Best effort came last time out at Naas when defying expectations to finished second in a big field handicap pver this trip. She certainly has talent and given some luck in running should be one of the leading contenders.
Needs to put a poor run at Gowran Park behind but had previously been in good form in handicaps at Limerick and Leopardstown. Dropping to a handy mark and not easy to write off.
Very difficult to win with but generally runs his race without threatening to win. Inching down the handicap but others preferred on the balance of form.
Running well in defeat in a number of starts over the summer with the Mayson gelding slipping to 10lb lower than his last winning mark. Gutsy sort but needs things to fall his way.
18-race maiden on turf despite hitting the frame on seven occasions. Fair effort last time out at Naas in big field handicap, only losing 2nd place close home. Up 1lb for that effort and place claims possibly best connections can hope for.
Has looked solid and consistent in a couple of starts since returning to action at Fairyhouse and at Naas last month. Recent promising efforts have caught the eye and the mare is entitled to be in the mix.
11-race maiden who is yet to hit the frame in nine starts on turf. Not beaten far on her most recent start in June but unlikely to be good enough to feature.
Sole win came in May 2017 on the fibresand when trained in the UK. Better effort when a close fourth latest with reapplication of a visor in July.
Long standing maiden who failed to improve for the introduction of first-time cheekpieces last time out at Tipperary. Unlikely winner on all known form.
Has shown little ability on three starts to date and unlikely to be good enough on handicap debut.
