Poor form in a series of dismal performances over 2016/2017 and hard to construct a case for her here.

Second-rate performer in five career maiden hurdles well beaten on each occasion including a 208L defeat last month. Others preferred.

Failed to build on promising handicap hurdle second here when pulled-up at Cork when struggling in November. Well beaten on two occasions since but can figure in this company.

Put a string of gloomy performances behind him when winning a Limerick handicap hurdle at their Christmas meeting. Beaten since over both timber and the larger obstacles but hard to dismiss in this company.

Beaten 102L in three maiden hurdle starts so far at Thurles and last time out at Cork over 2m. Needs to improve significantly.

Maiden in 12 starts on Flat for Richard Hannon and no luck so far in 10 unplaced starts over hurdles. Looks up against it here.

7/2

Modest 50-rated Flat handicapper who has fallen and finished 13th of 18 in two handicap hurdles in November before an encouraging effort last month at Naas but more needed again in this contest.

Has failed to finish his last three starts which is a worry for the veteran of 30 races. Looks opposable.

Fairly well beaten on last three starts over the larger obstacles following a heavy 135L in a Navan maiden hurdle. Plenty to prove in this contest.
