Plenty have questions to answer but Dawn Hoofer makes plenty of appeal and looks to be improving as she steps up in trip. However, ABJAR didn't run without promise in a much better race last time at the Curragh when not getting a clear run and he could be worth chancing each-way at likely bigger odds with the benefit of Ben Coen's 7lb claim. Days Without End could improve for this ground. [Mark Boylan]

Continues to improve and progressed again when upped to 1m4f 13 days ago at the Curragh to win Apprentice Derby under Gavin Ryan (claimed 4lb); raised 8lb since to 80 (first win off 62) which makes life tougher but hard to say where her improving will end.

Downpatrick (yielding) debut bumper winner has been beaten on softer surfaces in Flat maidens since; bumped into smart jumper at Clonmel before third as 13-8fav at Tipperary (Top Othe Ra 2.5l behind off levels) when a shade disappointing; must improve for quick ground and switch to handicap.

Made all to win 1m4f Wolverhampton maiden last August for Sir Michael Stoute before finishing second to Gold Star (then rated 88 but now 108, third in Meydan Group 2) in handicap at same venue; weak in market on Curragh stable bow when respectable fifth in premier handicap after not having clear run; could be lively with Ben Coen's claim.

133-rated hurdler off the mark on second Flat start here over 1m7f with battling display before making Curragh Flat handicap bow off 1lb higher than now 12 days ago, unable to land a blow but staying on to the line over 2m; may improve for that experience.

Hurdling since joining this team but now makes first Flat start in Ireland, having hit the frame on five of his eight starts in Britain for Richard Hughes; has been competitive off the sort of mark before and could be lively if market support arrives.

Bolted up off 67 in C&D apprentice handicap under this rider but struggled here the following week under penalty, was never involved over hurdles and was 5.25l behind Dawn Hoofer in Apprentice Derby when last seen; dropped 1lb since latest but work to do.

Didn't go unsupported when fine second over 1m4f at Dundalk in April behind hardy rival; struggled off 3lb higher over C&D behind Hurricane Sky when weak enough in the market; Keane booking positive but must show more.

1-10 on Flat but has been hurdling lately, with a decent second at Clonmel the only positive effort from four starts; second in this race last year and although wasn't disgraced on the level since, probably hasn't matched than level of form either; market check.
