Winning and experienced point-to-pointer; well beaten on only racecourse appearance at Downpatrick in July when beaten by 91 lengths; no forlorn hope but has plenty to prove.
Career best when finishing second of 16, collared in the shadows of the post here in November but has a couple of dismal efforts either side of that run; not ruled out in this company.
Pulled up on only point-to-point start earlier this month and it would be a surprise to see him being good enough on debut under rules.
Little to get excited about on breeding and never a factor on only racecourse appearance at Galway in October; hard to see him being capable of the necessary improvement to land this.
Cost 78,000 euros as a three-year-old; brother to high-class jump winner Weapons Amnesty; certainly one to consider and market support would be a positive for leading stable.
Well beaten in a bumper at Limerick in March and on hurdling debut earlier this month; open to improvement but still looks an unlikely winner.
Modest 20-race maiden on the Flat and he would be a shock winner on hurdles debut.
No real promise in a couple of bumpers before being sent hurdling at Cork earlier this month when pulled up after showing up well for a long way; needs to settle better but not without a chance.
Ten-race maiden on the Flat in France; needs to improve for the switch of codes to make a winning hurdle debut but respected given connections and market should be a good indication of his chances.
Well-bred and fairly expensive purchase as a youngster; two fair efforts to date over hurdles at Tipperary and Wexford; can come on for those experiences but may find a few too good.
Very little to be positive about following disappointing debut at Roscommon in September and equally disappointing run recently at Naas; others preferred.
Won a point-to-point in February but was pretty average on rules debut at this track last week; open to some improvement but will need to if wanting to be a leading contender here.
Hinted at ability in a Wexford bumper in April but has been well down the field in three subsequent maiden hurdles events since including when pulled up last time out at Fairyhouse; easy to oppose.
Pulled up in a point-to-point in January and well beaten on first try under rules in a maiden hurdle at Clonmel in late October; never a danger on latest start at Naas this month and similar run can be expected.
Has shown a little bit of promise in two bumper events including when placed last time out at Tramore; more needed to get serious on hurdles debut but respected nevertheless from top yard.
First foal; hard to assess from limited information on breeding; market will be the best guide.
Reasonably bred filly who comes from a family of stayers; given that she may be the type to do better in time but worth a market check.
