Remains in good form since landing a 5f handicap at Down Royal in July off a 12lb lower mark. Tough ask off top weight but should not be underestimated.
Winner of two of her five starts over C&D. Running well in defeat in a number of starts over the summer and cannot be ruled out back at this venue.
13-race maiden for trainer Stan Moore, doing most of her racing on the AW in France. Possibly worth a check in the market on stable debut.
Winner over C&D in June off a 8lb lower mark. Holding her form consistently since, running well in defeat on a number of occasions including on latest start at Cork over 5f earlier this month. Adept pilot in the saddle.
Mare that has done all of her winning on the AW. Remains a 14-race maiden on turf. Well held on latest start at Fairyhouse over 6f last month on first start since January.
Two from 23 on turf. Former 86-rated handicapper for trainer Paul Cole, returned to action when finishing eighth of 20 beaten 6¼L in a Cork 5f handicap earlier this month. More needed.
Nine-race maiden well beaten in a couple of starts at Galway and the Curragh last month. Not in the form required to play a part.
Below-par effort on return to action over C&D on good to firm ground last month before making no impression in the closing stages at Cork earlier this month over a similar trip. Handicap mark continues to fall but hard to be confident at present.
Won over C&D in July 2018 which started a profitable spell for the mare. Continuing to run well in defeat in a number of starts over the summer, the daughter of Captain Rio is not to be taken lightly here.
Won a fourth career contest in a Fairyhouse 6f handicap last month off a 6lb lower mark beating Rag Tatter 1L. C&D winner previously and one of the more intriguing contenders.
Tough and genuine handicapper winner of three of his 63 Flat starts on turf. Out of sorts since returning to action at Roscommon in July and best watched in this company.
Form has leveled off somewhat since landing a Sligo 6f handicap on good ground in May off a 1lb higher mark. First-time visor needed to spark a resurgence.
Hints of a return to form when running Pillar to 1L in a 6f handicap at Fairyhouse last month. on yielding to soft ground. Not the most reliable of sorts.
Daughter of Equiano out of a Pivotal mare. Inexpensive €1,200 as a yearling. Well held when sent off at big prices in three career starts in August. Others preferred.
Not shown enough racecourse evidence that she is up to winning a race like this anytime soon including poor show at Listowel over 1m last month.
Posted a career best effort when getting into the race as a reserve over C&D last month, finishing fifth of 22 beaten 1½L on good to firm ground. Very interesting challenger in this contest.
Ran best race for sometime when finishing behind Rag Tatter and Pillar in a Fairyhouse 6f handicap last month. Very difficult to win with but generally runs his race without threatening to win.
Six-race maiden, form overall has been below-par including finishing 13th of 15 beaten 13L on her latest start at Bellewstown on Wednesday. Looks up against it.
Well beaten and never nearer in four career starts to date and hard to begin to construct a case for the filly here.
Three runs over C&D have produced a win and a place. Ran well in defeat, not beaten far, here over the combination last month and not too easily dismissed here.
Showed improved form on handicap debut when finishing a narrow second over 6f at Kempton in March. Ran below-par on return to action at Musselburgh over 5f last month on stable debut. More needed in first-time cheekpieces.
Well beaten and no impression in three career starts to date. Requires a chunk of improvement to play a role in the finish in this contest.
Career best effort in 13 starts on turf when finishing adrift of a number of these in a Fairyhouse 6f contest last month when fourth of 17 beaten 2L. May find this a tough ask.
