122-rated hurdler and has won over this distance. By Midnight Legend and market likely to reveal expectations on chasing debut.
Winner in bumper and hurdle starts though beaten a total of 89L on his last two starts for powerful owner/trainer combination. Tough ask on chasing debut.
Well beaten 24L on chasing debut when finishing fifth of eight in a Hexham novice handicap chase over 3m on soft ground earlier this month. Hard to fancy in this company.
Laboured and second-rate performance on chasing debut earlier this month when finishing 11th of 12 beaten 106L over 2m3f. Needs to improve significantly.
Game 132-rated hurdler who was solid and consistent in a series of genuine offerings in novice contests last term. Worth a market check.
Distance winner in a Thurles Grade 3 novice hurdle last February going on to be a highly rated 140 hurdler. Likely to be a warm order on chasing debut.
Mid-division when brought down on her chasing debut at Thurles on Thursday. Unlikely to have improved enough to play a role here.
