Winner here in the spring but has only served to send out mixed messages in a number of starts on turf since. Market will possibly emerge as the best guide in this contest.
Won for the second time over C&D when last seen in March, beating Tennesse Waltz as a strong favourite in the eight runner claimer on his final start for trainer Mick Halford. Leading player on stable debut.
Has been running solidly and consistently without winning in a series of efforts over the summer and returned to this track with a pleasing fourth of 14 beaten 2¾L earlier this month. Can go well again.
Plying his trade, without success, in Hong Kong since leaving the Andrew Balding yard in 2017. Interesting debutante for yard with market likely to reveal expectations of connections.
Has hit the frame on three of his four starts over C&D and can go well once again in first-time cheekpieces following a couple of solid runs in defeat over further since the doors opened here once again in September.
One from 13 in his career, getting off the mark for connections on his penultimate at Cork last month at the 12th time of asking. Worth a market check on Polytrack debut.
Has hit the frame on just the one occasion from five starts over C&D. Backed into favouritism in two of her last three starts on turf and a check in the marked could be informative once again.
Winner of three of his 14 starts over C&D with the last win coming over three years ago off a 22lb higher mark. Place claims but difficult to make a winning call here.
Eight-race maiden ran well on AW debut over 1m earlier this month finishing third of 14 beaten 1¼L. More progress possible and not to be taken lightly in this contest.
Without a success in nine career starts, all on turf. Running well in defeat over 1m this summer including on her most recent start at Thurles earlier this month running Eastern Racer to 1½L. Capable of running a big race on Polytrack debut.
Struggling sort over the summer, last visited the winners enclosure in a Tipperary 5f handicap over two years ago. Best watched on belated AW debut.
11-race maiden but has been running with plenty of promise on her first couple of starts at this track. Third of 14 on latest start over 1m earlier this month when running Buzz Killington to 1½L. Yard just starting to kick into gear.
Career best for the seven-race maiden when finishing second of 16 beaten 2¼L in a Tipperary 7½f handicap in August. Well held in a couple of starts on turf since and needs a vast improvement on AW debut here.
Genuine sort who desperately lacks consistency in some of his starts on the AW here. Losing run now up to 21 and needs to show more sparkle before any faith is placed in him.
