Not a regular winner, just a single handicap to her credit from seven pounds lower. She is yet to try this far but does stay two and three-quarter miles well. Ground versatile, she needs a little more to be considered, however.
Doesn't look to be moving any closer to the target on evidence of latest Ballinrobe defeat

Unexposed type in the right hands but he has not looked to quite get home over shorter, including at this track last time. That was his first run back from a break so may do better but that’s needed from two pounds higher.
Up 2lb for cracking festival fourth and is untried beyond 2m5f but should produce bold bid

A strong stayer over two and a half, he has the potential for improvement at this trip. He was pulled up early on his handicap debut so needs to leave that behind but this mark is fair on his novice form so respected.
Fairyhouse disappointment ran alright over insufficient trip at Kilbeggan, 3m fine now

Hit form with a vengeance last autumn, returning in sound heart last month. Stays this trip on a sharp track, a three-pounds higher mark that last time demanding more from him. Each way player nonetheless.
Up 3lb for Tipperary second but generally solid sort should give another good account

C&D Winner - Won before on this course at this distance
Won a maiden hurdle over this course and distance in 2017, rather inconsistent since. Still travelling well when falling in January when last in action, that coming three out. Previous runs suggest this mark is on the high side.
Running well when faller at Thurles in January, absent since and must bring his best

Cold Recent Form Trainer - 0 wins from 10 in the last 14 days (0%)
Strong stayer, winning from this mark over fences in January. Went on to be fourth in the Eider so needs this to turn into a proper test of stamina. Placed from higher over hurdles last September so chances if it’s run to suit.
Pulled-up in two big handicap chases recently and now reverts to hurdles where 8lb lower
