Distance winner on debut but yet to follow that up. First time hood unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Thrown in at the deep end on return to action at the Galway festival earlier this month following a 332 day break. Profile suggests he is worth taking on again.
Winner of three of his 23 Flat starts on turf. Not disgraced in a couple of starts since June but likely to find a couple of better handicapped sorts lurking on the card.
Lightly raced son of Casamento comes in on stable debut for his first start since a gelding operation. Possibly best watched unless the market suggests otherwise.
Frustrating sort, beaten favourite on each of her last three starts following a first win at Limerick in June off a 6lb lower mark. Rates a leading contender once again.
C&D winner running well in defeat in a number of starts since returning to action in June. Completed a hat-trick of runner-up finishes in a Tramore 1m4f handicap on Saturday. Deserves a change in fortune.
Blotted a decent looking copy book at Ayr recently, but overall efforts over similar trips entitles the gelding a place on the shortlist.
Improving sort, posted another bold effort in a Sligo 1m2f claimer earlier this month. 13-race maiden on turf needs first-time blinkers to spark further improvement.
14-race maiden on turf with the High Chaparral geldings three wins coming on the AW. Best watched in this occasion needing a few to falter.
Has four wins to his name but the Majestic Missile gelding is yet to taste victory in 23 handicap starts. Can give a decent account without threatening the main protagonists.
Veteran, winner of two of her 48 Flat starts on turf. Difficult to make a case for following her sixth of seven well beaten at Tramore on Saturday, her first run for 12 months.
Running well in defeat in a number of starts since June. Entitled to have designs on prize money now the Intense Focus gelding is running 1lb lower than last winning mark.
13-race maiden who has hit the frame on just one occasion in 12 Flat starts on turf. Another in the field to run at Tramore on Saturday and needs to improve on recent starts to take a hand here.
Six-race maiden, ran well in defeat finishing fourth of 14 beaten 5½L at the Galway festival over 1m4f earlier this month. Others hold stronger claims.
Lightly raced maiden, well held in a number of dismal efforts on the Flat since May. Beaten 17L finishing 10th of 12 on latest start and remains easy to oppose.
18-race maiden, still looking for breakthrough success in 15 starts on turf. Encouraging effort at Leopardstown earlier this month but requires first-time cheekpieces to work some magic here.
