Winner of a maiden contest over C&D on debut in March last year and has only appeared on three occasions since. Last seen in September and may find this a tough task off top weight.
Miserly career return of just the one win from 23 starts. The Kyllachy gelding ran well on sole visit over C&D finishing second of 14 beaten a neck in September. Beaten on turf since and needs to break well to get involved here.
Gained a third win of the year when battling to success over 5f at Lingfield on penultimate start for trainer Mark Johnston. Needs to improve on stable and course debut earlier this month when finishing last of 13 beaten over 13L behind Geological.
Last win came here in March off a 8lb lower mark but the daughter of Dandy Man has a solid return over C&D with a win and a place to her name from two starts over the combination. Can go well but has negating draw.
Lightly-raced gelding who has had just the five appearances to date without success. Needs to better his 11th of 13 beaten 13L on Irish debut over 6f last month.
Off the mark at this venue at the 11th time of asking for connections when landing the spoils last week in a 6f claimer. Another bold bid expected from advantageous draw.
In solid and consistent form in a number of starts since August. Not out of the places in three starts last month the Le Cadre Noir gelding can continue his progress on polytrack debut.
Off the mark for connections at the seventh attempt when landing a Navan 5½f maiden on yielding to soft ground last month. Held his form well in three starts on this surface last winter and is one for any shortlist.
Encouraging midfield finish on debut over C&D when last seen in September finishing 3L adrift of the winner. More progress on the cards and entitled to be in the firing line.
Running well in defeat in a number of starts on turf over the summer. Beaten on a couple of previous visits to the track posting a best effort over 6f when finishing fourth of 10 beaten 2½L in August last year.
Winner at Navan on a couple of occasions over the summer and has posted a couple of promising efforts over 6f since return to this venue in September. Has hit the frame previously over C&D but has a negative draw to overcome.
Went close to the second success of his career last time out when he was the runner up in a nine runner contest at Navan over a similar trip last month. Market likely to be the best guide on debut at this track.
Has a win and a place to her name from six visits to the track. Well held on most recent visit here last month. Draw and racing 7lb lower than last winning mark raise concerns.
First Reserve: All five appearances at this venue last season was over C&D posting a win and a place in the process. May need the run on first start since March but may not be out of it if making the line-up.
