Landed a second career win on the Flat when scoring at Ballinrobe three starts ago off a 4lb lower mark. Twice beaten since but capable of a bold bid if fully ready.
Just the two starts this season and both were below par; had shown good form last summer and is slowly dropping to a reasonable mark; one to consider.
Solid enough 80-rated handicapper for trainer Mark Johnston winner of his final two starts on the AW at Wolverhampton and Kempton for the yard. Runner-up on stable debut when last seen in March.
Generally consistent mare who ran well over an inadequate 1m4f at the Curragh on her penultimate start before being slightly below par last time at Galway; every chance at the weights if bouncing back to form.
Useful 121-rated handicap hurdler won on his Flat debut at Ballinrobe in June. Missed the break on latest run in August on handicap debut at Roscommon but ran on creditably in the closing stages; excellent chance if starting better.
Bumper winner who proceeded to win on hurdling debut at Punchestown in May. Has finished in the runner-up position on three of his last four starts since making his Flat debut in July; needs to improve on latest run but deserves to be winning soon.
Beaten by 30l over 1m6f at the Galway festival following a win four days prior at the same venue over 2m½f. Better than last result suggests and one to have on the shortlist.
Winning handicap debut last month Limerick (1m4½f, good) and since run creditable races at Galway and Killarney. Open to improvement over this trip and one to consider.
