Seven-race maiden posted a career best at the Curragh last month finishing fifth of 23 beaten 1½L over 6f. Capable of more improvement.
Landed a second career win in 13 starts when winning a Cork 6f handicap on good ground off a 5lb lower mark last month. No surprise to see a big run once again.
Mixed messages of late in a number of starts since returning to action in June. Needs to show more consistency before any faith is placed in her.
Losing run dates back to 2017 and a 26lb higher mark. Not in the form required in five seasonal starts since June to play a part in this contest in first-time blinkers.
Five-race maiden with all defeats coming on the AW at Dundalk. Last seen finishing last of 10 beaten 16L in March and best watched on return to action.
Running well in defeat in a couple of runs since winning at Naas in June off a 9lb lower mark but was well beaten at Tipperary last month. Can return to form over this trip in first-time cheekpieces.
Winner of four of his 54 Flat starts on turf including a couple of successes over C&D. Ran well at Cork earlier this month and can give a good account back below last winning mark.
Running well in a number of starts this summer including finishing second of 14 beaten ½L at Roscommon in July. Form has tailed off a little of late but the filly is entitled to have designs on prize money in this contest.
Ten-race maiden beaten in nine Flat starts on turf. First time visor unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Eight-race maiden, generally well held on turf and more recently on the AW at Dundalk. Last seen beaten over 10L at Gowran Park in May and best avoided on return.
Coming back to form, running well in defeat at Bellewstown and more recently at Roscommon over 7½f last month on good ground. Place chances once again.
Now racing 18lb lower than his sole career win from 15 starts on turf. Requires a chunk of improvement to play a role in the finish here.
Career best for the five-race maiden when finishing second of 16 beaten 2¼L in a Tipperary 7½f handicap last month. That race has already produced two winners from three runners. Leading player.
Still a maiden form 16 Flat starts on turf. The filly posted a career best effort at Bellewstown on her latest start over 1m last month. Looks to be progressive and shortlisted here.
