Won a Flat maiden at Listowel 15-months ago, but has been unable to add to that. Well beaten 41L in a Cork maiden hurdle last month and good chance handicaps will suit in future.
Produced a career best effort to finish second of 13 beaten 2¾L over C&D in a maiden hurdle last month and likely to improve on that performance here.
Son of Flemensfirth won a point-to-point in March before failing to complete in a chase and a Punchestown maiden hurdle over 2m3½f last month. Likely to find it tough going.
Presenting gelding deserves a change in fortunes following a number of close calls in bumpers since December last year and on maiden hurdle debut over C&D last month finishing third of 13.
Gelding by Le Fou out of an Old Vic mare. Dam unraced. Best watched on debut here representing Co Meath yard who are without a winner from 15 starters this term.
Raven's Pass gelding out of a Titus Livius mare. €68,000 price tag as a yearling dropped to being sold for €5,000 as a two-year-old. Beaten at least 30L in all three starts for Arthur Moore so makes no appeal for new connections here.
Coastal Path gelding out of a Saints Des Saints mare. Pleasing third of nine in a Auteuil Listed hurdle when last seen in September over 12 months ago. Looks to be a standard bearer.
Daughter of Fame And Glory out of a Kings Theatre mare. Inexpensive €6,500 as a three-year-old. Well beaten in a couple of career starts so far including on maiden hurdle debut over 2m last month.
Fifth foal of a dam who reached the frame. Well down the pack on hurdling debut over C&D in a maiden last month. Plenty to find.
Daughter of Dylan Thomas out of a Dushyantor mare. 10th of 18 beaten 46L on a dismal maiden hurdle at Thurles last month. Others look more convincing.
Dismal efforts so far in a Tipperary bumper in May 2018 and in a couple of hurdles at Wexford in April and more recently at Fairyhouse last month. Appears to have a mountain to climb.
Daughter of Mahler. Shaped like a stayer when runner up in second of her Point-to-points in May before a wretched effort in a maiden hurdle over C&D in October.
Mahler filly was tailed off in her first couple of hurdle starts and although she has much scope for improvement she can only realistically be watched today.
Daughter of Aizavoski out of a Heron Island mare. Sixth of nine detached 66L on hurdling debut at this venue over 2m last month. Difficult to make a case for.
Infrequent visits to the track will not be helping the daughter of Oscar as she bids to progress in the game. Two-race maiden hurdler. not seen since the Galway festival in August 2018.
Went close in Ballingarry point-to-point in June. Only got as far as the third on hurdling debut in a Thurles maiden last month. Hard to fancy.
Daughter of Kayf Tara out of a Zaffaran mare. Cost €12,000 as a three-year-old; bred to be a decent hurdler. Not disgraced in three bumpers following a 19L defeat over hurdles at Cork in October.
