Vastly experienced winner of six of his 56 starts, the gelding is still holding his form well since winning at Galway in October off a 1lb higher mark. One for the shortlist.
Still looking to add to his sole win achieved in a Gowran Park auction race 12 months ago. Not ruled out but has a below-par run at Sligo earlier this month to shake off.
Useful 121-rated handicap hurdler won on his Flat debut at Ballinrobe when last seen in June, a race that has produced the second, Tritonix and the third, Grove Hill to subsequently win. Leading player on handicap debut.
Genuine and tough sort running well in a number of starts this term since April. Bit more needed but enters calculations in this contest.
Modest 111-rated handicap hurdler, winner of six of her 41 starts on the Flat. Has recently slipped to 3lb below her last winning mark and has a dismal effort at Ballinrobe when last seen in June to forget.
Failed to nail four-in-row when asked to step up in trip at the Galway festival last month. Solid and genuine type who will look to bounce back over this trip.
Eight-race maiden, running well in defeat in a number of starts since June. Goes well over this trip and is entitled to make the shortlist.
15-race maiden in Flat races on turf. Appears to be better suited over this trip including finishing second of 13 beaten 4½L over C&D in September off a 4lb higher mark. Dark horse.
Four-race maiden, disappointed when upped to this trip at the Curragh when last seen in June. No surprise to see the filly bounce back in this company.
