Three-time winner at the track the Casamento gelding has been successful on two occasions over C&D from eight starts over the combination. Solid and consistent sort worth following dropping in trip.
Won the third and fourth races of his career when landing a double over C&D in November/December. Another bold show expected with a hat-trick on the cards.
Winner of three of his 14 appearances at this venue including hitting the frame over C&D. Recently seen over hurdles well beaten in a Leopardstown novices' contest on St Stephens day. Not to be taken lightly in first-time visor.
Recently seen over hurdles at Naas, the gelding has won two of his nine starts over C&D. Worth a check in the market as post time approaches now racing 7lb below last winning mark.
Sole win gained in 2017 but the daughter of Arcano has shown plenty of promise in a number of starts at this track since November including a pleasing effort over C&D. Needs a few to falter.
Solid and consistent sort in three starts over C&D since November without getting his head in front. Gives the impression we may not have seen the best of him yet.
Winner of two of his 20 Flat starts on turf. Sole effort at this track came over C&D in November 2018 finishing sixth of 14 beaten over 9L. Others hold sturdier claims on stable debut.
Lightly raced daughter of Mastercraftsman. Last of 13 when never a factor over 1m4f when last seen in a Naas maiden in November. Unlikely to be making a significant impact in this contest on AW and stable debut.
Course winner here in 2017 the Manduro gelding ran with plenty of credit to finish second of 14 beaten ½L in a 7f claimer before a dismal effort over 1m4f at this venue last month on stable debut.
Winner at this track, last of 14 over C&D when last seen in October. Yard have a solid record in the first three weeks of the year at this venue boasting a 44% win and place strike rate in the last four years.
C&D winner in November off a 6lb lower mark before being well beaten here when stepped up in trip. Represents a yard who have had 24 runners finish in the first three from 55 starters at this track in the first three weeks of the year since 2016.
Off the mark on this surface at the seventh time of asking on her fourth start over C&D when landing a 14 runner handicap off a 10lb lower mark earlier this month. Tough ask from revised mark.
Lightly raced winner of two of his 13 starts on the Flat. Not seen on track since August when well held over hurdles. Best watched on first visit to the track.
Won for the second time in his career when landing a 14 runner November handicap off a 10lb lower mark over C&D. Beaten on a couple of visits to the track since and may have to settle for minor honours.
