Lightly-raced gelding who has had just the three runs so far. He was eighth of 15 last time on his first run over hurdles, albeit a long way off the winner. Needs to improve on his second start over obstacles.
Has struggled on all three of his starts to date. He was seventh of 14 on his latest outing at Ballinrobe (2m2½f) after going off at 66/1. Needs to take a big step in the right direction to be competitive here.
Smart operator on the Flat where he scored three times in France, including on his most recent appearance at Fontainebleu where he prevailed in a 1m7f contest. Eye-catching switch in yards. Big run can be expected.
Getaway gelding. His dam was unraced. Market likely to speak volumes about his chances on his debut but with no experience on his side, others make more of an appeal here.
Made his debut over hurdles last time at Bellewstown (2m4f) where he made an encouraging start, finishing third of nine. Was successful four times on the Flat. Stepping up in distance now. One for the shortlist.
Has appeared just twice on the track so far where he has failed to be competitive on both occasions. His latest appearance came in a maiden hurdle at Sligo (2m4f) where he was last of nine runners. Hard to fancy.
Made his debut at this course back in July a bumper over the extended 2m trip where he had just one rival behind him in a 13 runner contest after going off at 50/1. Stepping up in distance on his hurdles debut. Others are preferred.
Remains a maiden after four races under Rules. He has finished third on his last two starts, including at Downpatrick (2m5½f) last time in a seven runner field. Open to improvement. Worth consideration.
Has appeared twice so far in point-to-points where she has struggled. She was pulled up on her latest run at Kinsale (3m). This is her Rules debut where she will need to improve. Cheekpieces are on for the first time. Other appeal more.
Has had two starts over hurdles so far. She was much better on her second start as she was only ½L away in second place of nine at Downpatrick (2m3f). Stepping up in trip where she is open to improvement. One to consider.
Still a maiden after seven races. She ran well at Clonmel (2m) back in February but her latest form has been disappointing. Her latest outing came at Sligo (2m4f) where she was seventh of nine. Others are preferred.
