Heavy ground point-to-point winner in December but struggled since going under rules and likely to be of more interest once tackling handicaps.
Classy Flat performer and plenty to like about his first two efforts over hurdles including when fourth over 2m at Navan (soft-to-heavy) last month. Likely to run well again today.
Unraced gelded son of Brian Boru out of a mare who was successful over both hurdles and fences. Tongue tied for today's belated debut.
Winner of a bumper at Fairyhouse (heavy) in January but well held in a Grade 2 contest in that sphere subsequently. Interesting to see how he fares on today's hurdling debut.
Placed in a Listowel bumper in September but disappointing when pulled up on hurdling debut and returning from over four months off the track today.
Placed twice from four starts over hurdles including when runner-up over C&D in December. Disappointed last time but remains one to note in this contest.
Winner of three races on the Flat and placed twice from four starts over hurdles. Ran well in a Grade 2 event at Naas (soft) last time and is an interesting runner today.
