Failed to land the hat-trick at Kilbeggan when last seen in July following wins at Leopardstown and Ballinrobe in June. Jockey going well with 36 winners this term.
Solid enough 121-rated handicap hurdler, but still without a win under both codes in 25 starts, including 11 Flat defeats on turf. Needs to improve on even his best form.
Off the mark for connections at the seventh time of asking when landing a Listowel 1m4f handicap on soft ground off a 6lb lower mark. Another bold show likely.
Down the field on return to action last month following an absence of 429 days. More needed but worth a market check with leading apprentice, winner of 15 of his 190 rides this season.
Modest 97-rated handicap hurdler, late comer to the Flat. Well beaten in a couple of recent starts including finishing fifth of 14 beaten 12L at Bellewstown last month. Looks a tall order on form shown.
Off the mark at the 11th time of asking at Ballinrobe in July before landing the spoils again at Tramore over 2m off a 4lb lower mark. One of the top pilots in the saddle, winner of 21 races this term.
Beaten favourite earlier this month in a Navan 1m2f handicap following a three-race sequence of finishing in the runner-up position over the summer. Can be expected to improve on that run.
Lightly-raced gelding, not disgraced in three career starts so far. Worth a market check with adept youngster riding, looking to go into double figures for the season.
Won for the second time in his career when landing a Roscommon 1m4f handicap on heavy ground off a 6lb lower mark. More to do but has the services of capable pilot, winner of 17 races this season.
Improving sort, produced a career best effort in 11 starts finishing second of 15 beaten 1½L in a Listowel 1m4f maiden on soft ground on Friday. Will look to progress once again.
Tough and genuine type, veteran of 24 Flat handicaps on turf, though just has the one victory to his name. Liable to find a stronger in the line-up.
Modest 92-rated handicap hurdler, still looking for a breakthrough success in eight Flat starts on turf. Not seen on the level since January when in the hands of trainer Peter Fahey. Plenty to find in this contest.
Lightly-raced 83-rated handicap hurdler, winner of three of his 17 Flat starts on turf. Not seen in this code since June last year and best watched here.
Off the mark for connections at the fifth time of asking when landing a Fairyhouse handicap over 1m4f last month off a 9lb lower mark. Experienced pilot in the plate, winner of 16 contests since January.
Tough and genuine veteran appears to be struggling in a couple of starts since returning to action last month. Tough to see where improvement is coming from at her age.
Nothing of note in a couple of Flat starts last term. Well beaten over hurdles recently and remains easy to oppose in this company.
Posted a career best at Killarney in July but overall the mare hasn't shown enough in eight-race interrupted career to be of interest here.
First Reserve: 12-race maiden, well beaten on return to the Flat earlier this month at Navan. Out of form and easy to oppose in first-time tongue tie.
