Generally consistent of late and fourth at Ballinrobe latest another sound effort for this maiden whose best effort to date came when second at Wexford. Respected here.
Disappointing he couldn't take a good chance (4/7F) at Ballinrobe in July but earlier form competitive at this level and should have been freshened up by a recent Flat outing.
Maiden but ran really well in last two starts for Peter Fahey and first two for this stable after almost a year off. Leading claims now third time back after the layoff and a bold bid looks assured.
Handicap debut for this Downpatrick maiden hurdle winner comes over the longest trip she's faced but one which promises to suit; interesting contender.
Picked up her opening win over hurdles at Tramore (2m4½f) on the fourth start of her career but never a factor since on handicap debut before unseating three out. Others preferred now.
Winner over 3m at Tipperary in July on good ground, five lesser runs under her belt since however and overall others looks more appealing at present.
Clonmel winner in June was a clear second best in a 17-runner contest at Listowel over 2m4f latest. Upped 2lb but may find this trip around ideal (effective at 2m4f and 3m) so has to be seriously considered.
Off the mark over this trip at Downpatrick two starts back before weakening out of things there latest off this 4lb higher mark. Could yet bounce back.
Eighth at Wexford recently on hurdles bow a fair effort after uninspiring efforts in three maidens before. More needed but time still on her side.
Long standing maiden under rules was beaten a long way on first race in 414 days last week and little better since so best opposed again here.
Unplaced in all eight starts for Joseph O'Brien (six over hurdles) so hard to fancy here on stable debut.
Maiden of 15 ran well two starts back at Cork but woefully after a break at Killarney so makes little appeal now.
Got off the mark at the 10th time of asking for connections over hurdles in a Kilbeggan 2m4f handicap 13 months ago. Absent since unseating rider early on at Clonmel in February.
Fourth at Bellewstown after a break quite pleasing but bounced when only beating one home since at Ballinrobe. Latest run more common than the fourth and best avoided here.
Never competitive ninths the last twice for this mare who has had just the four outings. Time on her side but much more needed.
Veteran who has won as a 16yo belying his age to land a hurdle at Roscommon taking advantage of a much reduced mark. Uncharacteristically out of sorts when pulled up latest and surely father time looms large now.
One from 14 over hurdles and well beaten in a number of starts since the turn of the year for trainer Aytach Sadik. Market check on stable debut for new highly prolific yard.
Dismal run of form earlier in the season concluded with the mare finishing pulled up here when last seen. Hopefully freshened up by the break; market can guide to some degree.
Won one of 38 in all and is 0-17 over hurdles. Joined the all-conquering Elliott yard but even they have their work cut out it seems; tongue tie is interesting addition.
Still a maiden but beaten just over 6L in each of his last two starts suggesting this handicap mark of 85 is one he can be competitive off. Jockey booking a positive and he demands respect today.
Poor form in maidens and only beat one home on handicap debut in a 17-runner contest. Makes no appeal.
Four-race maiden well held and no impression in three dismal maiden hurdle efforts since debut in April. Tough ask on all known form.
Seventh of Limerick on handicap debut back in the spring the first glimmer of hope. Layoff to overcome but hopefully show the latest run wasn't a one off.
Maiden of little account on the Flat and similar tale so far over timber, with record already reading 0-6. Safest to look elsewhere for now.
20-race maiden under both codes but has run well in defeat a few times of late and been placed in three of his last five starts. Fourth latest and would be no surprise to see him make the frame again.
