King's Song
J: Seamus Perry
T: Gordon Elliott
Form: 1P17-P
Age: 8
Weight: 11-9
The only stable in good recent form with eight winners in the last two weeks but pulled u last time out at Tipperary over three miles when weakening three out. Sure to strip fitter now after his first run since Guy Fawkes Day.
Better chaser but still has to be respected off this much lower hurdles mark
2
Lady Of The Sea
J: E T Daly
T: Paul Nolan
Form: 3U3421
Age: 6
Weight: 11-7
In great form recently with three top four places before a win at Wexford over three miles when left in the lead at the last. Up four pounds but her jockey claims seven and thus in with a chance.
Possibly fortunate to win at Wexford but improving for stamina test and only 4lb higher
3
Benarty Hill
J: Alison Clarke
T: Liam Lennon
Form: 213-90
Age: 8
Weight: 11-5
Ended last season well with a win here and a third at Punchestown but out of sorts this season with heavy defeats here over hurdles and at over fences at Cartmel. Has to bounce back to get involved and needs more rain.
Tailed off on both recent outings and has a preference for soft ground
4
Maureen's Star
J: Adam Short
T: Liam Lennon
Form: -99313
Age: 5
Weight: 11-4
Perth win in July sandwiched between two third spots here and at Cartmel and stays this trip and further. Dropped three pounds for a twenty-four-length defeat last time and weighted to do better.
Fortunate Perth winner looks to have it to do off revised mark here
5
Pump Road
J: Derek Fox
T: Mark Michael McNiff
Form: 541P-P
Age: 6
Weight: 11-3
Pulled up at Navan on his last start for the Lonergan yard in January and did the same over course and distance last month when weakening a long way out. Tramore winner in January but cannot be trusted to give his true running.
Pulled up over C&D last month and hard to be confident in
6
Folly Dat
J: Andrew Ring
T: R K Watson
Form: 07-379
Age: 7
Weight: 11-2
Still to win a race despite ten starts and beaten over fifteen lengths at Cork in a first-time visor over shorter last time out with no excuses. Upped in trip but not guaranteed to improve for it, more needed.
Tame Cork effort on Monday doesn't augur well though C&D third in May reads better
7
In Our Blood
J: Conor Maxwell
T: Neil McKnight
Form: 30U-6P
Age: 8
Weight: 11-0
Twenty-four starts without a win now stretching back to his 2012 debut on the flat at Dundalk and pulled up last time out at Sligo after being hampered at the seventh. Runs off the same rating here but has to do more.
Hampered when pulled up last time so forgiven that; still of limited appeal on balance
8
Smiling Jessica
J: A E Lynch
T: Gavin Cromwell
Form: F1P-62
Age: 8
Weight: 10-13
Yet to win over hurdles but decent enough over fences and in point to points and better handicapped in this sphere. Third run for new trainer and improving slowly after a Worcester second over fences.
Beaten favourite at Worcester but major player, especially if rain comes
9
Some Pride
J: Miss P Elvin
T: James H Black
Form: 1000/0
Age: 10
Weight: 10-13
Scored at Ballinrobe by a length back in 2015 but off from October that until July and sure to have needed his distant tenth here on his only outing in close to three years. Impossible to know if he retains any talent.
Tailed off over C&D on last month's return; best watched
10
Highly Driven
J: Harry Cleary
T: Michael G Cleary
Form: 7P-090
Age: 6
Weight: 10-12
Last of four on the flat at Bellewstown last month which followed a forty-four length tenth in a maiden hurdle here in June. Third at Punchestown in a 2016 bumper but nothing noteworthy since.
Moderate maiden beaten a long way under both codes of late and hard to make a case for
11
Killeen Elegance
J: Kevin Brouder
T: Ms Claire O'Connell
Form: /550-3
Age: 11
Weight: 10-11
Twenty-three races in total have seen a single win over fences here back in 2015 over even further but she hasn’t been seen over hurdles since August 2015 and arrives with plenty to prove.
Eyecatching return from year's absence at Roscommon on Tuesday; likely big player now
12
Piranto
J: Jody McGarvey
T: S Wilson
Form: 008-07
Age: 6
Weight: 10-11
Three bumpers and six starts over hurdles without so much as a place and beaten thirty-two lengths in to seventh at Sligo last month. Runs off the same mark now and needs to improve.
Very hard to make a case for though only a 6yo so has time on her side
13
Shine In Dubai
J: Danny Mullins
T: Ms Margaret Mullins
Form: 870-06
Age: 7
Weight: 10-11
Fifteen start maiden and beaten close to nine lengths at Roscommon last month over three miles. Same mark this afternoon and hard to fancy though Margaret Mullins will expect more on his third race for the stable.
Mildly encouraging effort last time when didn't go unbacked; may yet do better
