Victorious at the highest level over fences and a winner four times in hunter chases last season. Pulled up on sticky ground at Cheltenham in March at the festival but is better than that.
Popular veteran who is now without his regular jockey. Best days are clearly behind him but place claims all the same.
Not won anywhere since his days with Willie Mullins, but did record a Grade 2 success over fences as a novice at Navan in February 2016. Nothing of note since.
Has been running in point-to-point contests and well beaten last summer in a number of desolate chase starts. Needs to improve here.
Twice a winner in handicap hurdles last year but hasn't translated that ability over fences, yet, his six starts not really showing him in a good light. Easily dismissed.
Course winner who has also won over this trip. Won a point-to-point last month but days under rules are clearly behind him.
Pulled up in the Foxhunters at the Cheltenham festival weakening before three out. Place claims at best in this company.
Solid form throughout the summer last year over hurdles and won a two runner point-to-point on comeback in March. Pulled up on chasing debut before two out last month. Will struggle here.
Won a hunter chase last month at Cork but finished 16L behind Sizing Coal at Fairyhouse later in the month when finding no extra after the second last.
