Back to winning ways when landing a Killarney 2m7f handicap hurdle in first-time cheekpieces last month off an 8lb lower mark. C&D winner carries a penalty but far from certain to stop another bold bid.
Solid and consistent 77-rated handicapper on the Flat, the Mastercrafteman gelding has been running well in defeat in a couple of handicap hurdles since May. Similar effort will have him looking for more prize money.
Irregular visits to the track are not helping the once 140-rated hurdler. Looks a tall order on stable debut since the move from the Harry Fry yard.
Finished 36L adrift of Air Supremacy on return to action following a 400 day break at Killarney last month. Very little to be positive about.
Mixing hurdling and chasing without success in the spring. The gelding returns to the track since finishing fourth of eight beaten 7¾L in a Limerick handicap chase in April. Not seen over hurdles for 17 months. Others preferred.
Solid and consistent sort, winning a Cork maiden hurdle last month before a promising second of 14 on handicap debut here on Thursday over 3m. Another bold bid dropping in trip.
Course winner that has also won over the trip. Won well on return to action in a Bellewstown handicap hurdle last month off an 8lb lower mark. Should make his presence felt.
In consistent form in a number of hurdle starts since April. Landed a second career win over timber last time out at Tramore off a 7lb lower mark and another bold bid expected here.
Off the mark at the seventh time of asking over hurdles for connections when landing a Limerick 2m maiden in May. Reported to be 'blowing hard' post race at Killarney when last seen in July and worth another chance in this contest.
Failed to land a hat-trick of wins in a competitive handicap over C&D on Tuesday following a Tramore double last month. Can give another good account of himself.
