Six-race maiden has finished in the runner-up position on both starts at this venue. One of the seasons leading apprentices in the saddle.
Won for the second time in her career when landing a Navan 1m handicap on soft ground on his latest start on Wednesday. Life more difficult under a penalty but very much a leading player.
Useful 109-rated winning handicap hurdler ran well in defeat on AW debut at this venue last month finishing fourth of 14 beaten 1L behind Spruce Meadows. Leading and adept pilot in the plate, one to watch in first-time cheekpieces.
Won for the third time this season when taking a 7f contest on the beach at Laytown last month. Has a 6lb rise to overcome but likely to give a good account of himself once again.
Running well in recent starts including a close call on the Flat at the Curragh before winning a Bellewstown handicap hurdle in August. One of the years leading apprentices takes the ride.
Lost all chance when rearing in the stalls on return to this surface last month. Goes well here and his approaching a workable mark. Yard boast a 44% win and place strike rate at this venue in October with their handicappers since 2015.
Worth another chance following a below-par debut effort at this track last month. Accomplished pilot of 22 winners this term in the saddle and improvement likely in first-time cheekpieces.
Second of 14 beaten 1½L on sole appearance at this venue 12 months over 1m. Well held in a couple of starts when last seen in August but not totally ruled out in this company.
Off the mark at the fifth time of asking on AW debut at this venue earlier this month beating Fascinating Spirit ½L off a 5lb lower mark. Takes a big step up in trip here.
