Maiden ran a cracker when a 1L third on handicap bow at Cork and although he was a shade disappointing next at Ballinrobe he can't be ruled out yet at this early stage.
Winner of a 16-runner Roscommon maiden after twice finishing second in similar events last time out. Should improve further so respected on handicap debut.
Three-time hurdles scorer looked a little at the handicapper's mercy since winning at Clonmel in September and with compensation slow to prevail the same may prove the case here.
Maiden of 19 races in all but made the frame in her last five races over timber in both handicaps and maiden contests. Should win a race before long and certainly a leading protagonist here.
Maiden showed some promise in maidens without seriously threatening. Handicaps offer a better opportunity and one to note in the market here.
Promise of Navan return to hurdles followed up as he won quite impressively just four days ago at Fairyhouse. Will take plenty of beating here if in the same vein of form under just a 5lb penalty.
Stayed on into third on the Flat at Newcastle five days ago so is fit and in-form ahead of his return to hurdles. 1-25 record however rather tempers enthusiasm.
Third latest his best effort of five maiden hurdles and although more is now needed he is one to note on handicap debut and market support would be interesting.
Unplaced maiden of five not done enough to make any real appeal at present.
Midfield in three maiden hurdles so must improve for switch to handicaps but clearly has some ability and feather weight helps his cause.
Over a year since his lone win in 30 career starts and his latest efforts suggest him again one best watched.
