Winning 85-rated handicapper on the Flat finished fifth of 17 on hurdling debut at Tipperary earlier this month though the 21L defeat gives cause for concern.
Three-race maiden over hurdles and too early to predict the outcome when 1L clear and falling at the fifth flight in a Tipperary 2m4f contest earlier this month, sent off the 5/2f. Worth another chance.
Winning 78-rated handicapper on the Flat has been sending out mixed messages in three maiden hurdle starts so far. A repeat of the form shown in her run at Listowel last month will put the daughter of Lord Shanakill in the mix here.
Low-rated winner on the Flat landing a Fairyhouse 1m4f handicap in June, the daughter of Casamento is probably worth watching on hurdling debut unless market vibes suggest otherwise.
Fame And Glory filly is a half-sister to multiple winners, including smart hurdler/useful chaser River Liane. Has shown little or no aptitude in a couple of hurdle starts to be considered in this company.
Lightly-raced daughter of Arcadio. Left toiling on her first start over hurdles for 14 months at Clonmel earlier this month. Others have more scope for improvement.
Running with credit in defeat in a couple of starts in the spring since returning to the track following an 18-month absence. Market likely to reveal expectations on return to action in this contest.
11-race maiden on the Flat, yet to hit the frame in six starts on turf. Only seen sporadically in the last 12 months and needs to improve on a desolate hurdling debut at Clonmel earlier this month. Others more compelling.
Poor form in six starts including three desperate efforts over hurdles. Struggling on most recent start at Fairyhouse and difficult to fancy on this occasion.
Below-par efforts in a couple of career starts including on hurdling debut when last seen in February. First time hood unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Three-race maiden, pulled up on debut in a Punchestown bumper in May. Well held in a couple of starts since and hard to make a case for on hurdling debut.
Daughter of Mountain High out of an Oscar mare. Closely related to three maidens over the jumps. Dam was a maiden in five starts over hurdles. Best watched on debut.
Four-race maiden in bumpers. Posted a career best effort when finishing fifth of 11 beaten 3L on her latest start in a Listowel contest last month. Worth a market check on hurdling debut.
Mustameet filly, half-sister to bumper winner/useful hurdler Laser Light. Composed an ineffective display on maiden hurdle debut at Fairyhouse earlier this month. Others preferred.
Dam won over hurdles, but this daughter of Le Fou has offered nothing in three starts under Rules to date, and not expected to get involved.
By Flemesnsfirth out of a mare fourth in her lone bumper. Creditable finishing position on debut in a Wexford bumper when last seen in April but distance of defeat is a concern.
Daughter of Golden Lariat out of a Daylami mare. 100/1 and making mistakes before falling at the fourth in a Punchestown three-year-old hurdle 12 months ago before pulling up on return at Roscommon last month. Others more convincing.
