Fetched 24,000 gns in July, despite having had 28 runs without a win. Hasn't shaped like a drop back to this trip is what's needed in recent starts but he's achieved more than most in this contest and several of his better efforts have come on AW.
A maiden after 30 starts on the Flat but two of his best efforts have come in previous renewals of this race. Has a mixed record returning from absences but the ability to handle these conditions gives him an each-way squeak once again.
Shaped with promise in a 1m Dundalk maiden last year and it was a respectable effort next time on only other Flat start at Gowran Park. Stays plenty further than this over hurdles though and could be caught out by the drop back to 7f.
Tailed off in a pair of bumpers and well beaten on Flat debut at Roscommon but it was a slightly better effort when fifth of 15 in a Bellewstown claiming maiden last time; must build on that now though.
Showed promise last year for trainer Jessica Harrington at trips around 1m. Hasn't been in that form since but the drop back in trip is probably in his favour and his dam handled dirt (sire also capable of producing dirt winners).
Some promise in a trio of efforts at Southwell when joining this yard. However, his best runs have come over further than this and his form is moderate at best.
Barely beaten a rival home in three starts to date and almost impossible to recommend on all known form.
A little unlucky to still be a maiden after 14 starts and some of her better form has come on AW when trained by Jessica Harrington. Slow starts have compromised her recent starts but not without each-way claims in this event.
Placed twice in the States, including on Tapeta and she's run well in the main on four starts for this yard. Probably a shade too keen at Naas last time but worth giving another chance to and she makes a fair amount of appeal in a weak contest.
Showed ability on debut at Leopardstown over this trip but she's failed to build on that in two maiden races since. Not without each-way claims if repeating her debut effort but suitability to these conditions are unknown.
