Had a productive time last year, winning on the level at Tramore and over hurdles at Sligo; best run was when touched off in 18-runner Lartigue Hurdle at Listowel; returns from nearly five months off and would prefer better ground.

Kept his form well over the summer, culminating in a narrow defeat in the Listed Lartigue Hurdle at Listowel; beaten on the Flat at Dundalk since but entitled to plenty of respect on his Listowel form.

Second reserve; Roscommon maiden winner in June (soft to heavy) but has failed to back it up in three subsequent starts; fifth in a claimer last time and makes debut for McAuley; probably best watched.

Form & Verdict

Long-priced winner at Cork on handicap debut; has failed to build on that performance, finishing down the field in two races won by the progressive Urban Oasis; 54-rated filly meets a couple of these on considerably worse than handicap terms.

Form & Verdict

Three seconds at Dundalk last year, beaten favourite on two of those occasions; not progressive judged on this season's form but should go close at this modest level; meets likely main rival Dark Note on 4lb better than handicap terms.

Form & Verdict

Has shown some ability but seems risky, lost action and pulled-up on two occasions, including in 7f Gowran handicap last time; has left Jessica Harrington since then to join Ger O'Leary who tries him in cheekpieces; barring mishap, official ratings give him a decent chance.
