Not won since landing a 1m2f handicap at Doncaster two years ago when in the care of trainer Ian Williams. Not much to shout about in five starts for current yard. 13lb lower than last winning mark has to be a concern.
Won for the second time in his 30-race career when landing a Curragh handicap over a similar trip last month off a 5lb lower mark. Could well still have more to give.
Twice finished midfield in AW maidens for Ger Lyons over 7f and 1m early this year before much of the same story on stable debut at Listowel last month. Likely to improve on handicap debut.
Poor form in three career efforts so far since the Australia geldings debut in December. Faces a tough ask in this company on handicap debut.
Finally off the mark at the 10th attempt for connections landing a Gowran Park handicap in July off a 2lb lower mark. Well held and no impression in a couple of starts since and could be vulnerable to better handicapped sorts.
Failed to build on encouraging handicap debut at Killarney in July when finishing well down the field at Leopardstown over 1m5f in August. Needs to show more sparkle before any faith is placed in her.
Yet to hit the frame in two starts on the AW at Dundalk and two starts on turf including a 15L defeat at Listowel over a similar trip last month. Others preferred.
Modest 101-rated handicap hurdler had her first run on the Flat in five starts when finishing down the field at Gowran Park over 1m1f in August. Solid place form on turf and not out of the reckoning here.
Sent off at big prices on each of his four career starts since his debut in April. Running accordingly on each occasion the gelding is hard to fancy in this company.
Completely out of form currently suffering heavy defeats in a number of starts since April. Looks up against it now racing 11lb lower than last winning mark.
Seven-race maiden well held and yet to hit the frame in four Flat starts on turf. Plenty to find on recent offerings.
Below-par 16-race maiden, well held and never nearer in a number of starts in the 2018 season when in the care of George Webb. Market likely to be the best guide on return from a year on the sidelines for new connections.
Running well in defeat in a number of starts since September over hurdles. Five-race maiden on his Flat starts on turf but can give a good account of himself.
Nothing of note in four career starts to date and unlikely to play a part in the finish if making the line-up.
