Daughter of Flemensfirth out of a Sadler's Wells mare; seemed a long term prospect before her debut at Navan in December and that proved the case when she was beaten nearly 100 lengths; others preferred.
Fourth foal from a fairly decent National Hunt bred family; related to plenty of winners and it will be interesting to see level of stable confidence on her debut.
Looked a decent prospect when winning a point-to-point in 2018 but form tailed off on her latest four starts in that sphere and difficult to make a strong case for.
Has yet to hit the frame in six racecourse appearances and difficult to know where improvement will come from to be competitive.
Does not stand out on breeding and unlikely to be good enough on racecourse debut unless market speaks highly of her.
By Stowaway out of a King's Ride mare. Half-sister to winners Yes Sir Brian, Garri Rule and bumper winner Greenhill Millie; no show on debut in December when finishing 11 of 12 beaten 65 lengths.
Is certainly due a victory after some solid performances including over course and distance; looks one of the more likely types with experience to land this contest.
Has just put in the one reasonable run four career starts doing so at Tramore in August; generally disappointing and difficult to make a strong case for.
Yeats mare is a half-sister to useful hurdler/chaser Aqua Dude. Has failed to build on a couple of promising starts in 2018; well beaten when last seen out in June at Tramore; little to be positive about.
Daughter of Zanzibari out of a Okawango mare. Dam won on the Flat in France over 1m4f; completely tailed off on only racecourse appearance; open to improvement obviously but looks a long term prospect.
Makes hurdles debut; showed enough promise last time out in a bumper at Newcastle to suggest she should be capable of winning a race like this; interesting.
Well held in a Huntingdon Listed bumper over 2m last month beaten 24L on good to soft ground. Can be expected to perform better on hurdling debut.
First foal but related to plenty of winners over fences and hurdles; difficult to assess on debut and likely to do better in time.
Presenting mare who is distantly related to Denman; difficult to see her being good enough on her racecourse debut but might be worth a check in the market.
Flat.bred mare related to plenty of winners including hurdle winner Richard Strauss; market will be the best guide.
Won a Sligo bumper on debut in August before coming up shy in Listed company at Gowran Park; two promising runs over hurdles since and looks the one to beat if progressing once again.
Fifth foal; half-sister to 2m5f chase winner Kopookris; plenty to like about his pedigree but looks the type who will do better the more experience she gets.
Got no further than the fourth obstacle on hurdles debut at Navan earlier in the month (at odds of 100/1) and hard to recommend on that evidence.
Full-sister to fairly useful jumper Niven, and related to other jumps winners, so not without interest but was majorly disappointing on only racecourse appearance at Leopardstown in December.
