Beaten but not disgraced in a number of starts over hurdles since landing a Wexford handicap over 2m4½f on good ground in July off a 6lb lower mark. Has the form to make a bold bid.
Earlier progression appears to have leveled out based on three dismal efforts this term including a 33L defeat in a Downpatrick maiden over 2m3f last month. Has a bit to prove at present.
Miserly return of one win from 22 starts over hurdles. Has shown little or no aptitude in four starts this term to be considered in this company.
Never a factor following a return from a short summer break at Navan late last month before having to be pulled up on latest start at Gowran Park when weakening quickly on handicap debut earlier this month.
Out of sorts in a couple of starts since returning to action last month at Ballinrobe and a dismal effort at Clonmel earlier this month. Hard to fancy and others preferred.
Won her maiden at the second time of asking for connections when landing a Wexford 2m4f contest in June. Mixed messages in a number of starts since and no surprise to witness a bold bid.
Two from 20 over hurdles and ran his best race for sometime when finishing second of 12 beaten ½L in a Navan handicap chase last month. Worth a check in the market on return to hurdles on current mark.
Hitting the frame regulary in a number of starts since July and still in contention on latest start when coming down two out at Fairyhouse on Saturday. Market likely to reveal expectations quickly tuned out again.
Veteran who seemed in the form of his life having won twice this spring over both 2m and 2m5f on good and heavy ground. Generally well held in a couple of recent starts and others make more appeal.
Nine-race maiden, yet to get off the mark in eight starts over timber. Hints of encouragement in a Gowran Park 2m handicap hurdle earlier this month but more needed in this contest.
For-race maiden yet to hit the frame on any occasion. Weakened quickly before having to be pulled up on his latest start at Wexford last month. On balance probably has something to find in this contest.
