Nine-race maiden, experienced handicapper of five starts. Improved effort on latest start in a Navan 5f contest on soft ground earlier this month. Any market support could be significant.
Without success in eight career starts including four defeats in handicap company. Best effort came on penultimate start in a Navan 5f contest earlier this month finishing fourth of eight beaten 1¾L. Will need to improve on overall efforts.
Disappointing five-race maiden, well held in a couple of handicap starts since last month. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Four-race maiden, well held on handicap debut in a Gowran Park 7f contest on heavy ground earlier this month. First-time cheekpieces on but unlikely to spark a resurgence in form.
Off the mark for connections at the sixth time of asking when landing a 6f handicap on heavy ground at this venue last month off a 6lb lower mark. Found to be 'post race normal' after a heavy loss at Gowran Park earlier this month. One to note.
Four-race maiden who has shown very little in a couple of recent starts at Cork and on latest start at Naas last month. Hard to fancy on overall evidence.
Yet to hit the fame in five career starts since the filly made her debut at Limerick in June. Struggling in recent handicap efforts at Fairyhouse and Gowran Park, tough to see where improvement is coming from.
Five-race maiden, yet to hit the frame on any occasion including on latest start over 6f at this venue last month sent off the 9/2f finishing sixth of 19 beaten over 5L behind The King Of Kells. No surprise to witness an improved effort.
Not much to shout about in three disappointing efforts running between 5½f and 6f in weak maiden contests since his debut last month. Best watched on handicap debut.
Nothing of note in five below-par starts for trainer Ado McGuinness before an improved effort on debut for current connections, running The King Of Kells to ½L over 6f here last month. Rise of 3lb may not help the cause but still a lively contender.
Daughter of Sir Prancealot well held in three starts to date including a 17L reversal in a Navan 5½f maiden on soft ground at Navan earlier this month. Plenty of questions to be answered on handicap debut.
Daughter of Power well beaten so far in maiden and claiming company. Hard to fancy on overall evidence and others hold sturdier claims on handicap debut.
Well beaten on three career starts to date in maiden company. Not to be taken lightly representing a yard who have produced a couple of juvenile winners this month in Miss Myers and more recently Stela Star in the Group 3 Killavullan Stakes.
