Two from 28 starts under rules with sole turf win coming in a Killarney handicap two years ago off an 18lb higher mark when in the care of trainer John Oxx. Clearly regressing of late and this looks a tough ask.
Dual-purpose performer winner of a Gowran Park claimer over 1m1½f in May off a 3lb lower mark. Not disgraced from new mark when stepping up in trip but may find one of two better handicapped sorts lurking.
Seven-race maiden who has failed to build on an encouraging second of 14 beaten ½L at Limerick in April. Recent efforts suggest he is worth taking on again.
C&D winner of one of two starts over the combination, getting her head in front over three years ago. Signs of a return to form at Leopardstown earlier this month but over difficult to catch right.
Six-race maiden, well held in four starts since April when sent off a big prices. Needs to improve on recent starts to take a hand here.
Without a win in six starts with the daughter of Jeremy yet to hit the frame on any occasion. Not one to place a great deal of faith in.
Off the mark for connections at the seventh time of asking when just holding on in a Bellewstown handicap off a 6lb lower mark last month. Beaten at Fairyhouse since but one that merits respect.
Generally well held in a series of disappointing starts last summer at big prices. Ran well on return to action in June before a disappointing effort at Ballinrobe last month. Place claims.
Five-race maiden well beaten and no impression in her most recent starts at Fairyhouse and at Ballinrobe last month. Still looking no nearer to breakthrough success.
Nine-race maiden well held in five starts on turf. Recent efforts on her final start for trainer Richard Brabazon and for current connections on stable debut leave the filly hard to fancy.
Sleeping Indian filly who appears to be getting the hang of things looking at recent starts at Fairyhouse and at Ballinrobe last month. Looks to be progressing well and shortlisted in this contest.
10-race maiden on the Flat, the daughter of Roderic O'Connor posted a career best effort finishing fourth of 14 beaten 5¼L on her most recent start at Ballinrobe last month. More needed but enters calculations.
Daughter of Arakan more recently seen over hurdles and the larger obstacles. Six-race maiden on the Flat without success in four stars on turf. Needs others to run below par to have a chance in this.
