Winner of two of his six starts for trainer Oliver Sherwood but failed to inspire in three starts for new connections in the summer. Not the most reliable of sorts and others hold stronger claims.
Dual Flat scorer left some uninspiring hurdles efforts well behind him hacking up in a Roscommon handicap over 1m7½f on soft eight days ago. Upped 12lb but has leading claims after that breakthrough.
Won twice in three starts and second here before probably not staying 2m6f at Ballinrobe latest. Could easily bounce back and resume progress so not ruled out here.
Had to work hard considering 4/7 odds when landing a 2m4f maiden hurdle at Wexford when last seen in June. Should be the sort to do better still now handicapping and although untested under rules on such ground she handled it in points.
2m5½f Ballinrobe maiden winner didn't look a natural over fences latest but she is better judged on her 2m6f second in a Ballinrobe handicap the time before and off a mark just 1lb higher on ground she appreciates she has to be respected.
Over three years since his lone win but he remains lightly raced for his age and comes here on the back of thirds here and at Roscommon. Soft ground to suit and should be in the mix for place money again.
Winner in January 2018 on heavy ground in January for Zoe Davison rarely looked threatening in four subsequent starts that season and now returns after 572 days off as an 11-year-old so lots to prove for new yard.
Maiden after 43 career starts and only placed three times along the way. Well out of the handicap today so likely to struggle as usual.
