Snapped up by his trainer for 13,000gns following a win at Lingfield for trainer-Jamie Osbourne in January. Worth a market check on stable debut.
Well beaten and no impression on AW debut last month when finishing ninth of 10 beaten 10½L over 1m4f following two heavy hurdle defeats at the end of the year. Looks opposable.
Promising debut when third of 14 beaten 2½L behind Wooster before winning over 1m4f earlier this month. Beaten on last start here and interesting now stepped up in trip.
12th of 14 when last seen in a Leopardstown novice handicap hurdle over this trip when beaten favourite. Possibly best watched on AW debut.
Failed in his hat-trick bid last time out when finishing fourth of 13 beaten 2¼L over 1m2½f here last month. Worth a market check upped this trip.
Course winner that has won over this trip. Not disgraced over C&D in December when seventh of 12 beaten 5¼L behind Elishpour. Worth a market check now 7lb lower than last winning mark.
Course winner who finished a solid second of 12 on a trip to Wolverhampton over the extended 2m before finishing 3L behind Ineffable here last month. Capable of a big run.
Two wins and five placed efforts from 17 Flat starts on turf, both successes coming beyond 2m. Only beaten 2¼L in a bunch finish here in September at 40/1 but the veteran looks up against it here.
Course winner who has won over a similar distance on three occasions over hurdles. Could struggle as the veteran appears to be regressing.
Winner at 2m6f over the larger obstacles last seen on the Flat when beaten 11L at the Galway festival in July 2016. Plenty to work on here.
Maiden of 12 well beaten in last two starts back in the summer before finishing 11th of 14 on return to the track last month. Hard to fancy.
Possibly didn't always appear to be the most resolute on the Flat for Jim Bolger, and moved on for €30,000 in October. Beaten 67L over timber on stable debut.
Ninth of 12 well beaten when headed 2f out over C&D in January and well beaten since over shorter trips. Others preferred.
