Good effort in winning a beginners chase at Tramore (2m5f, heavy) in December and ran well back over hurdles there subsequently. Dropping in trip today.
Signs of a possible return to form when finishing third of four at Navan (soft-to-heavy) last time out. Interesting to see how he fares int his contest.
Heavy ground Listowel winner in September but held since including on handicap debut at Fairyhouse (2m, soft-to-heavy) last time out.
Broke her maiden over fences when winning at Fairyhouse (soft-to-heavy) last month. Ground and trip are both in her favour today and she is one for the shortlist today.
Fell on his first two outings over fences and beaten 95L in a small field at Down Royal (heavy) last time. Making his handicap debut following a break.
Ran well to finish runner-up at Punchestown (soft-to-heavy) in December. Disappointing favourite subsequently and will need to bounce back to figure in this contest.
Kilbeggan maiden hurdle winner on yielding ground last may but struggled over fences including when falling at Fairyhouse (heavy) last time.
Successful three times over hurdles but remains a maiden over fences and well beaten over fences at Limerick when last in action back in December.
Chasing a hat-trick following victories at Galway (soft) and Fairyhouse (good-to-yielding) in the autumn. Those victories both came in handicap company and he has more on his plate today.
Point-to-point winner and placed over fences at Cork (2m5f, soft-to-heavy) in November. Disappointing the last twice but not written off just yet.
Maiden after ten starts and held off a mark of 110 at Gowran Park (2m, heavy) last time out. Others have a more obvious chance today.
