Yet to make the frame from 11 attempts under rules, but has been consistent in defeat in recent months. Can't rule her out of the frame from this mark.
Point runner-up who has shown improvement with each of three runs over hurdles so far. Even so, he has still been well held on each occasion, so needs a significant step up to win on handicap debut.
Showed promise and also improvement in four starts last season. Would have claims from this mark if able to reproduce his Wexford effort from last March. Step back in right direction last time, and interesting here.
Four-time winner over hurdles, the last three being over 2m3f and in headgear. 6lb higher than when scoring at Naas (soft) last month. Found out from this mark last time, however, so has a bit to prove again.
Scored over a similar trip in a Down Royal hurdle (heavy) in 2018, and has added a 2m chase to his CV since then. Returned from Rebecca Menzies for another spell with this trainer prior to good effort at Down Royal last time. Enters calculations.
Showed promise in bumpers, but yet to come close to that form in four attempts over hurdles, from 2m-3m. Still looks to have a tough task from this mark.
Recorded one win in both codes way back in 2014, but on a lengthy losing run since. Best recent effort came here over C&D (heavy) in November, when under 6L third from a 3lb higher mark. Bit to prove, however, after what we have seen since.
Point winner (good) who has been beaten a long way in all completed starts under rules, and fell in the other. Can only watch.
2-35 over hurdles, having won twice on heavy at Limerick (2m/2m2f) but not since 2015. Not beaten too far from today's mark at Tramore last time, but still needs to step up on that to figure.
Point winner in 2018 (yielding/soft). Only really one run of any note since she started under rules, and first-time blinkers need to do something special for her if she is to break her duck.
Beaten a long way in her first two starts over hurdles, when 100-1, and then even further on her handicap debut at Naas last time. Has probably shown enough to suggest she can get involved from this mark, but still has that to prove.
Showed a bit of promise when placed in a couple of bumpers on heavy ground in the 2017-18 season. Was off from March '18 until last month, when she was never involved in a Cork novices' handicap. Blinkers now tried but can only watch.
Placed in four of her 19 starts under rules, but remains a maiden. However, best two efforts have been on her last two starts, including here over 2m7f (heavy) last time. Nudged up 1lb, so more needed, but enters calculations.
Has shown that he can be competitive from this sort of mark, including here over C&D in this race last year. More needed for the win. Is respected, though heavy ground is also a concern.
Yet to make the frame from 13 starts under rules. Well held from similar marks over a variety of trips this season. Look elsewhere.
