Winner of a novice handicap chase over 3m at Warwick (good-to-soft) in March. Well beaten twice since including on debut for this yard at Thurles (2m2f, soft) last month. Extra distance today should see him in a better light.
Maiden hunter chase winner at Clonmel (heavy) in February. Best handicap effort since came when third over an extended 2m4f on heavy ground there earlier this month.
Successful just once from 43 starts and out of form in recent outings. Well beaten in a banks race at Punchestown (3m, soft-to-heavy) last time out and more needed today.
Successful over 2m6f on good ground in handicap chase here in August last year. Lightly raced since and worth a check in the market following a couple of outings over hurdles this autumn.
12 race maiden but placed in handicap chases five times from seven starts for this yard. Unraced since finishing eighth over an extended 2m6f at Galway (yielding) in October last year.
Failed to placed in 14 starts and finished well beaten on both previous chase starts including when 34L fourth on handicap debut in this sphere at Fairyhouse last month.
Placed twice from 11 starts over fences. Ran well to finish third of 14 at Clonmel (yielding) in September but held twice since. Market support would be interesting today.
Victorious three times over fences most recently on heavy ground at Galway over an extended 2m6f in October. Placed off a mark 1lb higher than he races off today and one to note despite pulling up at Thurles last time.
Good effort in finishing third over 2m7f at Ballinrobe (soft-to-heavy) in September. Pulled up twice over hurdles since and this return to fences looks likely to suit.
Handicap hurdle winner on soft ground over an extended 2m7f at Hexham in October. Finished a decent fourth over fences there subsequently but has to put a disappointing effort at Clonmel last time out behind him if he's to take this.
Maiden after 15 starts and finished a well beaten fifth at Thurles (2m2f, soft) two weeks ago. More needed if he's to take this contest.
Placed over fences at Fairyhouse (soft-to-heavy) in February. Well held since including on return from a break at the same course a month ago.
Successful in a point-to-point 12 months ago and put in some fair efforts over fences including when fourth over an extended 3m at Sligo (yielding-to-soft) in August. Others have stronger claims here however.
