|15||9 Nelly's Money
6/1, career best when winning 6-runner handicap chase at Wexford (16f, good to soft) 15 days ago. Switches from chase to hurdles. Up in trip. Merits consideration.
|11-3||Phillip Enright||Robert Tyner||4/1||11/1||175|
|35||15 The Big Chap
Lightly-raced winner over hurdles. Career best when winning 17-runner handicap hurdle (10/3) at Limerick (19f, good to soft) 35 days ago, driven out. 8 lb higher mark shouldn't prevent another bold bid.
|10-9||Kevin Sexton||Paul W Flynn||4/1||8.5/1||113|
|36||16 Moving Water
Promising type. 15/2, career best when winning 11-runner novice hurdle at Wexford (20f, good to soft) 36 days ago, easily. Makes handicap hurdle debut. Has good chance on form.
|10-8||Mark Walsh||Desmond McDonogh||5/1||3.5/1||30|
|24||14 Navigator Jack
11/1, career best when winning 15-runner handicap hurdle at Listowel (20f, soft) 24 days ago, responding well. Not taken lightly.

|26||3 Kingston Retreat
4/1, career best when winning 12-runner handicap hurdle at Tramore (21.6f, good to soft) 26 days ago, easily. Should give another good account.

|16||6 Merry Poppins
Course winner. 3/1, creditable fifth of 10 in handicap hurdle at Roscommon (20.6f, good) 16 days ago, staying on gradually having not jumped with much confidence. Each-way possibilities.
|11-5||Darragh O'Keeffe||J Motherway||12/1||10/1||17|
14/1, shaped better than distance beaten suggests when eighth of 14 in handicap hurdle at Killarney (22.2f, good to soft) 45 days ago, bad mistake 3 out and no threat thereafter. In excellent hands and she may well do better still.
|11-5||Paul Townend||W P Mullins||12/1||9/1||25|

2/1, creditable second of 8 in handicap hurdle at Down Royal (20.4f, good to soft) 27 days ago, held when untidy last. Should give another good account.
|11-12||Charlie O'Dwyer||Mrs John ||18/1||6.5/1||64|
|32||10 Sweet Sting
Course winner. Latest win in hurdle here in May. Respectable fourth of 12 in handicap hurdle (13/2) at Punchestown (24f, good) 32 days ago. Needs a couple of these to falter.

|58||17 Lost Oscar
22/1, pulled up in novice chase at Ballinrobe (17f, good) on debut over fences 58 days ago, pulled up before 4 out. Switches from chase to hurdles and market may prove the best guide now.
