Boasts a win and a place from six starts at this venue. Recently seen tailing off in a Down Royal 2m½f hurdle on soft ground earlier this month. Needs a few to falter.
Posted a season best effort when finishing fourth of 14 beaten 1¾L behind Heliac over C&D, his first start on the surface. Positives outweigh the negatives in this contest.
Another in the field to make his polytrack debut over C&D last month finishing 1½L behind Heliac. Will be able to get a nice sit from stall six and open to plenty of improvement.
Eye-catching returns of three wins at the track proceeding to hit the frame on a further four occasions. Winner over C&D and not to be taken lightly here.
Has not progressed in five starts on turf since winning a Curragh maiden in August last year. Lightly-raced colt possibly best watched on polytrack debut.
Posted a career best effort when landing a claiming contest over C&D on final start for trainer Ger Lyons last month before finishing fourth of 11 beaten 1½L when stepped up in trip earlier this month. Claims back over this trip in first-time hood.
Sole win gained in 2017 and out of her depth in Listed class at Cork and Limerick last month. Well held on latest start in a Leopardstown 1m4f handicap and best watched on polytrack debut.
Solid returns running at this venue hitting the frame on three of his six starts including a couple of victories. Could be of interest stepping up to this trip for the first time.
A solid record of two wins and a place from 10 starts over C&D give the gelding a clear and obvious chance of grabbing a place running 4lb higher than last winning mark.
Daughter of Lord Shanakill sending out mixed messages in a number of starts on turf over the summer. Boasts a solid record over C&D and improved effort on return to this surface would not surprise.
Not disgraced in three starts at the track since September. Runs over this trip for the first time here and worth a market check as post time approaches.
Winner of a couple of starts at this track and has two place efforts to his name from three efforts over C&D. Strong place claims if things fall right.
Running well in defeat in a number of starts at this venue over a variety of trips. Possibly best watched on first start over this distance.
Improved on first run at the track when finishing second of 14 beaten ½L over C&D late last month. More than capable of a big run.
