Four race maiden. Had looked to be getting the hang of things before putting below-par effort in at Cork (6f) at the start of the month. May be set for bold effort in handicap company for top yard however.
Yet to win after five races but penny looks to have dropped with recent two efforts, including 1L fourth in 7f Cork maiden last time out. Cheekpieces on for the first time and must enter calculations.
Put in best effort of her career to date when fourth in 1m Killarney maiden last month. Looks destined to go well in handicap company but given lofty mark and others are more persuasive.
Thrice-raced maiden and offered no impression when sixth in 1m Bellewstown contest on latest start. Could be more suited to handicap company however.
Hasn't won in three starts to date and looked slightly regressive with 7L defeat in 5f Tipperary maiden last time out. Takes a drastic step up in trip for handicap debut.
Started to get the hang of things recently, faring better than the results suggest at both Down Royal and Listowel (1m, soft) on latest start. Ridden too prominently that day and cheekpieces could bring out some more improvement.
Has failed to hit the frame in three starts to date, including seventh of 18 in Navan maiden (5f) last time out. Back up to more suitable trip today but has plenty to find on rivals.
Five-race maiden but arguably put up career best when narrow third in 7f Tipperary contest last time. Had the run of the race that day but given a likeable mark for handicap debut.
Experienced sort. Winner at Sligo (5f) in July but unable to reach that level since, including 3L sixth in 1m Listowel Nursery on latest start. 3lb drop in the handicap gives him place claims but looks exposed now.
Hasn't hit the frame in five starts and put in an avaerage performance when sixth of 13 at Down Royal (7f) 18 days ago. A bit more needed but this trip is expected to suit.
Steadily improving with each run and put up best effort to date when second in 7f Down Royal handicap (beating Amelia Jane) at the end of August. On a workable mark and looks set to go well.
Thrice-raced maiden who has finished well beaten in each start, including 21L defeat at Cork last time out. Cheekpieces turned to in bid to find some spark.
Ran well for a long way before fading to finish fifth in Down Royal handicap (7f) 18 days ago. Behind Myrcella that day so bit to find with that rival but merits place considerations.
Has shown mixed messages during her career so far but looked well-held on her handicap debut at Killarney (1m) on latest start. 3lb drop in weights could see her go well but obvious reservations on recent form.
Has finished down the field in each of his starts today with the most recent eighth coming in 5f Bellewstown maiden. Hard to fancy on this efforts.
Lightly-raced maiden who was a good fourth in a 7f Down Royal nursery 18 days ago. Behind Myrcella that day but has a 2lb pull at the weights with that rival this time and cheekpieces turned to.
Maiden who took a backward step when twelfth in 7f Curragh maiden when seen 40 days ago. Blinkers are put on for handicap debut.
Slow start cost her when 11th of 12 in 5f Tipperary maiden on latest start. Significantly up in trip for handicap debut.
Lightly-raced but offered very little when behind some of these rivals in 7f Down Royal nursery at the end of August. Blinkers turned to but hard to make a case for.
First reserve. Shown some glimpses of promise in her races to date but was a modest sixth in 1m Killarney nursery last month. Place claims at best.
