Veteran of over 50 career starts on both turf and the AW. Gallant effort to finish second of 14 to get within 1½L of Yuften over C&D earlier this month but more needed here.
Best effort for sometime when finishing second of 14 beaten a little over 1L behind Munfallet earlier this month on stable debut. More than likely to run a big race once again.
11-race maiden but has hit the frame on two occasions from five starts at the track. Gives the impression we may not have seen the best of him yet and worth noting in the market on first start for respected connections.
Posted a career best effort when finishing third of 14 beaten 2¼L on polytrack debut over C&D last week when headed inside the final furlong. Not to be taken lightly.
Put a number of dismal turf efforts behind her when landing the spoils over C&D earlier this month to get off the mark for connections at the 10th time of asking off a 4lb lower mark. Another bold bid likely.
Not showing the same form for in a couple of starts for new connections that the gelding produced for trainer Mick Halford in the early part of the year. Faces a tough ask.
Boasts a miserly return of one win from 16 starts over C&D. The Cape Cross gelding has been struggling for form in two recent starts and could be vulnerable to better handicapped sorts.
Beaten in a number of starts of turf since breaking her maiden tag in a Fairyhouse 7f claimer in September last year. Not seen since June and best watched on polytrack introduction.
Far from disgraced in a number of starts at this venue since September including finishing 4¾L adrift of the winner on a couple of occasions over C&D earlier this month. Can give a good account without posing serious threat to principals.
Career best effort in three starts at the track when finishing third of 14 beaten 1¾L over C&D before disappointing again over the combination earlier this month. Needs to take a big step forward to get competitive.
Lightly raced gelding in the last 12 months, remaining a 15-race maiden. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Four-time winner here, the Azamour gelding has a couple of wins to his name over C&D from nine starts over the combination. Well held in three starts here since returning to action last month and others appear more convincing.
Off the mark for connections at the six time of asking in a Hamilton 1m½f handicap in July. Beaten since off his revised mark at Killarney when last seen in August. Makes polytrack debut here.
By no means disgraced on return to action following a 12 month absence when finishing ninth of 14 beaten 5L over 7f at the end of last month. Hard to fancy.
