Has been hurdling and chasing of late and has not raced on the Flat for three years; hard to accurately assess his chances here but has been fairly consistent in the jumping sphere of late.
Just a maiden win to his name to date and that came back in 2016. Has run well in defeat over several different trips this year but clearly comes with risks attached given his strike-rate.
Three Flat wins from 15 starts but the Sir Percy gelding is still looking for his breakthrough success in six starts on turf; disappointing once again last time out at Killarney; hard to get excited about.
Ran some fair races in spring before going off the boil by July; returns here fresh and may just needs this before getting back into the groove.
A couple of fair efforts over hurdles followed a decent performance over 1m4f at the Galway festival in August; one to note and could be of particular interest if the money is down.
Sole win on turf came in a Listowel maiden over 1m4f on his racecourse debut over 12 months ago; decent recent effort at Thurles four days ago and interesting he is turned out again so quickly; interesting contender.
Lightly-raced colt who has put in a few decent performances in his short career notably at Down Royal on his second start; open to plenty of improvement and difficult to assess at present.
Very conssitent and likable gelding who put in one of his better performances over this trip on his penultimate start at Navan; a repeat of that would very much put him in the firing line.
Great effort last time out at this track over and extended nine furlongs; interesting to see how he copes with the step up in trip but holds every chance if handles it.
Failed to land a hat-trick at Galway following good wins at Tramore and Ballinrobe earlier in the summer; trip and ground no problem but looks a bit vulnerable at the weights.
Only caught on the line four days ago at Thurles and if running up to the same level then she could be very hard to beat given the overall level of her form and general toughness.
Has been showing some progressive form of late and will handle the ground should it turn heavy; much to like about his recent attitude and one for the shortlist.
