Gelding who was a little out of form towards the end of a summer jumping campaign failing to build on a promising second of 16 beaten ¾L in a Limerick handicap chase in July. Will possibly need the run on return here.
Beneficial gelding in good form throughout most of the 2016/17 season campaign but he's struggled badly on three starts since October. Hard to fancy.
Tumbling down the weights following a series of poor chase displays in 2017. Last seen over hurdles when finishing second in the Grade 2 Strawberry Hurdle at Fairyhouse in March 2016 in the care of Aiden O'Brien. Will possibly need the run.
Won two hurdles race for Willie Mullins before switching to current trainer and had shown flickers of promise in two starts at Kilbeggan and Bellewstown before pulling up at Cork when last seen in August. May need the run on return here.
Failed to build on a promising seasonal bow when going down by 29L in a Fairyhouse novice handicap chase last month. The eight-year-old is better than that and can put the record straight here.
Has produced a bunch of ineffective displays for powerful owner/trainer combination since December but should still be too strong for a number of these.
