Big improver this season; twice second, including before wins over an extended 1m4f at Tipperary and Ballinrobe in July; coped reasonably well with heavy going when fourth over 1m5f at Down Royal last month.

Over three years since last Flat win, penultimate C&D third under today's rider was a good effort, trip probably too far latest; on a fair mark now.

Down Royal win last summer over slightly further and fine comeback third (first-time hood) at Navan in April before off the mark over hurdles at Killarney last month; likes this ground, on a competitive mark and should go well.

Flat handicap winner last year ran a fine race in that sphere when 3rd at Navan on comeback; best of three hurdle runs when 3rd in a Cork maiden in January on heavy ground; sound surface suits better, so holds a solid chance.

Got up late to win a 1m5f handicap at Down Royal in July and went hurdling from there, his best effort when a good fourth in a Cork maiden hurdle in January; hooded here and the stable have had a good start to the Flat season; should go well.

C&D maiden winner last summer whose subsequent handicap debut run at the Curragh was too bad to be true; missed a couple of subsequent engagements due to soft ground and reappears here still unexposed with ground to suit.

Four-time AW winner who is 0-21 on turf; beaten in a claimer before joining this yard and two 1m2f runs have been poor, last of 11 here last month; hard to have confidence in but yard going well and worth a market check.

Four-time AW winner who is 0-20 on turf; beaten in a claimer before joining this yard and he was well beaten in a 1m2f handicap at Cork two weeks ago; might not have liked the soft ground but he's not crying out to be backed.

NH mare is 0-7 on the Flat, runner-up in a couple of maidens in recent years; slow-starter on occasions but retains enthusiasm and can't be ruled out.
