18:10 Killarney Mon 14 May 2018
Pulled up when last seen in April weakening from two out in a Punchestown handicap hurdle on soft ground. Appears to need some relief from the handicapper.
Distance winner who has failed to finish his last two starts pulling up at Fairyhouse and last month at Punchestown. Hard to construct much of a case for him.
Best effort for the eight-year-old came in a Punchestown handicap hurdle last month finishing third of 24 beaten 2L over 2m4f. Place claims but can be a little inconsistent.
Modest 97-rated handicapper on the Flat for Aiden O'Brien but looked pretty handy in a summer jumping campaign last year. Possibly needed the run on return in a Punchestown novice hurdle last month.
Performing well on the Flat recently but has failed to finish either of his last two handicap hurdle starts at the end of the year. Hard to see him making any significant impact.
Has some solid efforts to his name and only just went down at Killarney before slipping up after the sixth at Downpatrick when last seen in June last year. Worth a market check.
Produced a number of laboured runs last season including a 29L defeat in a Ayr handicap hurdle on heavy ground in February. Plenty to prove in this contest.
Useful on the Flat and has run well against the likes of classy Coquin Mans and Max Dynamite. Second of 12 in a gallant comeback run earlier this month beaten 1¾L in a Cork handicap hurdle on soft to heavy ground over a similar trip. Place claims.
Decent handicap hurdler with two wins from 11 starts, spent a year on the sidelines before brace of runs on the Flat in June. Well beaten in August on his last start in a handicap hurdle at the Galway festival.
Fifth of 12 beaten 27L on handicap hurdle debut no impression on leaders and looking one-paced behind Rooster Byron. Has plenty to prove in this company.
A consistent hurdling campaign over the summer has been blighted by disappointing runs over the larger obstacles. Worth a market check back over timber.
Going nowhere quickly at present, despite being with top yard, and was easily brushed aside in his last two hurdle starts.
Won a Tramore 2m5f handicap chase last month before a small hiccup when dropped in trip at Punchestown last time out.
Picked up some very nice form for Gordon Elliott but hasn't been able to build on that since switching to this yard well beaten on his last three starts a total of 114L. Has work to do on recent form.
Won a Limerick handicap hurdle beaten 11 rivals landing the contest when eased home to win by 20L. Improving sort and not one to totally leave out of calculations.
