Showed ability but looked a real stayer when fifth of 13 at Down Royal on debut over hurdles last month. Jumped well enough so no guarantee he's as effective here although more likely than most.
Poor point-to-point form and tailed off in two bumpers including one here last Sunday. Easily opposed again.
Fame And Glory looked beaten when slipping up on debut at Clonmel last February. Hopefully have a better experience here but best watched.
Vinnie Roe newcomer the first racing progeny out of a 3m hurdle winning dam. Market can guide as to expectations here.
Showed a modicum of ability although always quite comfortably held in three prior bumpers. In a race lacking strength in depth however she could very easily make the frame for the first time.
Jeremy newcomer is a sister to point winner Paxman. Yard have occasional bumper winners but 0-15 in them in 2019 so probably best course of action is a watching brief.
Fifth and sixth in maiden point-to-points earlier this year but joined a top yard for rules bow so must be taken seriously and market support would bolster confidence.
Rule Of Law newcomer is a half-sister to 2m1f hurdle winner Sean Ban but looks best watched for a yard with a 1-28 record in bumpers over the last five years.
Homebred newcomer out of little used sire out of a modest dam who won on Fibresand and over hurdles. Market may reveal expectations.
Half-sister to Bellshill, amongst multiple winners in the family and she looked a sure-fire future winner herself when beaten just 6L into third of eight on debut at Limerick as favourite. In a weak looking contest she has a great chance.
Bought for €6,000 last year and she is the seventh foal out of a French hurdle winner and by sire Fame And Glory, Yard not prolific in such contests but she is preferred to stablemate Belle Etoile on pedigree alone.
