Winner of two of his 26 starts over hurdles and could be a danger now coming back down to his last winning mark. Liable to find a couple of more well handicapped in the field.
Landed a couple of handicap hurdles in May before failing to land the hat-trick at the Galway festival last month. Racing 21lb higher than first win at Wexford but still capable of a bold bid in this company.
Pulled up on latest start at Bellewstown in July when sent off the 11/8 favourite. Something clearly amiss on that run and worth another chance here.
Won a weak 2m6f maiden hurdle at Stratford last November when trained by Alan King. Well beaten and no impression in three dismal efforts for current connections. Others make more appeal.
One from 20 over hurdles. Has had training problems previously, reportedly busting blood vessels on occasions. Weakened quickly on latest start at Tramore last month and difficult to make a case for.
Off the mark for connections at the seventh attempt on his second start over hurdles when landing a Wexford maiden over this trip when last seen in June on his last start for trainer Peter Croke.
Better chaser than the Presenting gelding is hurdler, winner of his second chase on his latest start at Killarney when last seen in June. Hurdle form is not great and liable to find a couple stronger.
12-race maiden hurdler. Promising effort at at the Galway festival in a 2m½f handicap last month. Open to more improvement.
Still a maiden after 30 starts, looking for a breakthrough success in ten hurdle starts including on stable debut last month. Out of sorts currently and plenty to prove in this company.
12-race maiden, running well in defeat in nine starts over hurdles. Second of 21 at Cork last month, her third place effort in her last four starts. Likely to run well once again.
Has failed to progress in two starts over hurdles since a career best at Tramore in May over 2m. Could find one or two better handicapped sorts lurking.
Off the mark for connections at the 14th time of asking when landing a Sligo handicap hurdle off a 6lb lower mark last month before another solid run at Ballinrobe. Raised another 2lb but capable of another bold bid.
Winner of his last couple of starts at Killarney and Limerick when last seen in July. Raised 14lb since the first of those wins but looks a progressive type and should be in the mix again.
Well beaten and no impression in a couple of maiden hurdle starts to date sent off at 66/1 and running accordingly on each occasion. Not seen since March and others preferred.
14-race maiden but has shaped well in a couple of career best efforts at Bellewstown and earlier this month at Clonmel. Likely to go well again and entitled to make the shortlist.
Poor form since returning to action in July. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Pulled up in a Ballinrobe handicap hurdle last month following a break of 819 days. Needs to bounce back in a big way to have a say in this contest.
