Solid 123-rated chaser, winner of three of his 16 Flat starts on turf, the latest of which came in the Tipperary Perpetual Cup at Clonmel three years ago off an 8lb higher mark. Could be of interest if coming in for market support.
Popular veteran has been left floundering in a number of hurdle and chase starts since the turn of the year. Five-race maiden on the Flat and is hardly likely to be improving at his age.
One from 22 Flat starts on turf, the Soldier Of Fortune gelding is still on a dangerous mark running well in defeat following his win at Leopardstown over 1m4f in May. Step up in trip not a concern.
Daughter of Multiplex, the mare deservedly got off the mark for connections at the 22nd time of asking on turf when landing a Ballinrobe handicap off a 7lb lower mark last month. Another bold effort expected here.
12-race maiden who has hit the frame on just one occasion in 11 Flat starts on turf. Hurdling of late, the Jeremy gelding is possibly best watched here unless market indicates otherwise.
Caught the eye last time out finishing a close up second of nine in a Killarney 2m1f handicap last month. Up 5lb for his effort but still capable of another big run here.
Poor hurdler and well beaten, never nearer in three Flat starts on turf. Has not shown enough overall to be of interest in this contest.
11-race maiden posted her best effort for sometime when finishing fourth of 18 beaten 7¾L in a Fairyhouse 1m4f handicap on good ground last month. Others have more scope for improvement.
Winner on the AW at Dundalk in February the Arcano gelding is still looking for his breakthrough win in three starts on turf. Holds place claims if events fall his way.
Hasn't shown an awful lot of improvement for the switch to handicaps. Stepped up markedly in trip to a similar trip at Killarney last month before another heavy defeat earlier this month at Leopardstown. Others preferred.
Improving and solid hurdler of late but the Elusive Pimpernel gelding has yet to hit the frame in 18 starts on the Flat including eight runs on turf. Market likely to reveal expectations from connections.
Well held in three dismal efforts on the Flat, not seen since on the level for over 12 months. Does not warrant support based on overall racecourse appearances.
