Won on first start over C&D late last month beating Lachet a nose. Life more difficult off a 3lb higher mark but very much a leading player in this contest.
Won for the first time at this track on just her second start here when beating Dubai Rainbow in a 13-runner field last month off a 2lb lower mark. Could be a lenient rise stepping up in trip.
Scored a quick double at Gowran Park and Leopardstown in June over 7f/1m but has lost way since and was in trouble before unseating rider at the Curragh latest. Makes polytrack debut.
Tough and genuine sort who has been on the go since April. Traces of a long season starting to show in a couple of recent starts at Listowel and Limerick last month. Capable of a big run on Polytrack debut.
Lightly raced daughter of Helmet. Had not returned to action in the best form, tailing off in a couple of starts last month following a 12 month break before a resurgent start in first-time Cheekpieces over C&D early last month. More to come.
Has a record of one win from 14 starts over C&D though the Cape Cross gelding has proceeded to hit the frame on a further five occasions. Continues to run well in defeat and another bold show likely.
Hasn't won in well over two years but ran with credit in a couple of starts at this track last month. Likely to find one or two better handicapped sorts lurking on a competitive card.
Nine-race maiden, well held on her only start on this surface when finishing 12L ninth of 14 in a two-year-old maiden 12 months ago. Needs to take a big step forward on what she has shown in her most recent starts on turf.
10-race maiden. 10th of 14 beaten 8L on first start on this surface in a 7f handicap last month on his sixth start for current connections. Form doesn't warrant support here.
Eight-race maiden but has run well at this track in the past including when hitting the frame in a couple of starts from five runs over C&D. Can give a good account without posing serious threat to principals.
Zebedee gelding. Well beaten and no impression in four dismal career starts so far. Difficult to make a case for on Polytrack debut.
Well tried on this course but has only appeared on one occasion over C&D, finishing third of nine runners, 3½L behind Elysees Palace in March 2018. Could go well at a price.
Below-par four race maiden well beaten in three starts since returning to action in April. Needs to step up on efforts over the summer to play a part on polytrack debut.
Hit the frame on one occasion from three visits to the venue but overall form looks pretty patchy for the 11-race maiden. First-time cheekpieces unlikely to work their magic.
