Distance winner from two starts over the trip. Stable in good form and a bold run would not surprise in a wide open contest.
Has discovered his form in the last couple of starts at Killarney and more recently at Listowel over similar trips. Improvement likely to continue in this company.
Six-race maiden for leading yard. Running well in defeat in three starts in handicap company but may need a little help from the handicapper.
Stepped up on debut when fourth of nine here over 7f before a dismal efforts in a Leopardstown auction race when last seen in June. Yard going well and worth a market check on handicap debut.
Seven-race maiden, yet to hit the frame on any occasion. Has finished down the field in three handicap starts to date and career low mark may not be enough in this company.
Finally off the mark in a Down Royal nursery at the fifth time of asking, scrambling home off an official mark of 68. Well beaten and never nearer off a revised mark here over 6½f earlier this month and plenty to prove in this contest.
Six-race maiden posted a career best when finishing third of 10 beaten 2½L behind Chrysalism in a Fairyhouse claimer on Monday in first-time visor. Now tried in blinkers and can be expected to improve again.
Four-race maiden whose best result came with 3L sixth over C&D in May. Nothing of note since including on handicap debut at Sligo last month. Looks vulnerable in this company.
Sent off at big prices in three career starts, never troubling the winner on any occasion. Looks up against it on handicap debut.
Gelding by Gutaifan out of a Barathea mare. Dam, below-par 12-race maiden on the Flat. Well down the field when well held on three dismal career starts so far. Plenty to work on making handicap debut in this contest.
Has looked overwhelmed in three career efforts to date since making her debut in July. Has work to on handicap introduction.
Son of Dandy Man bought for €12,000 as a foal. Sent off at big prices on all three career starts to date, running accordingly on each occasion. Very little to be positive about on handicap debut.
Six-race maiden. Not discredited in her first couple of brushes in handicap company. Plenty to prove in this contest but not easily discounted.
