Not much evidence of talent on her first three bumpers runs but much more promise last time out at Galway in September; one to consider.
Well beaten in two bumpers to date; obviously open to improvement but nothing on first two runs to suggest she will be winning soon; entered in similar race at this track tomorrow.
Consistent form without winning in three bumpers so far; likely to have improved over the summer and being a soft ground point-to-point winner should relish any more rain.
Bred to be better over further but far from disgraced on debut (well backed 12/1 into 15/8) when probably needing the race; will be fitter here and may be the pick of the bunch.
Showed promise in the first three races in her career before struggling on her final start last April; should run her race but may find a couple too good.
Stoutly-bred mare in the care of a leading trainer; would not have to be anything too special to land this and the market should give the best vibes about her chances.
Not beaten too far on debut at Listowel last month and will certainly improve on that effort; looks one for the shortlist.
Something to prove after three weak bumper efforts to date; hard to see where any sudden improvement will come from.
Failed to build on promising effort on debut at Down Royal in August earlier this month at Gowran Park; capable but needs to bounce back from recent setback.
National Hunt bred; related to some fair bumper and hurdles winners; looks the type to do better in time and probably best watched on debut unless the money is down.
Not particularly well bred but is related to some winning hurdlers; another who will do better in time and perhaps over a bit further.
