Failed to build on a promising bumper run at Listowel when finishing 10th of 18 beaten 28L on hurdling debut at Clonmel and again last time out at Cork. May find this tough.
Bought out of a point-to-point in February following a 6L win on heavy ground. Big player from efficient trainer/jockey combination.
No extra after 2f out in a Cork bumper in January looking one pace in the final furlong on stable debut. Chances improved by accomplished jockey.
Poor point-to-point career and may struggle here making rules debut for new yard who have had just three winners in five years. Others preferred.
Kalanisi gelding and a half-brother to the yards dual winner Darkest Flyer. Looked one paced on maiden hurdle debut finishing 12th of 18 beaten 27L at Fairyhouse last month. May appreciate the the switch to bumpers.
Al Namix gelding out of a Robin Des Champs mare related to top national hunt exponents in Vatour, Sir Des Champs and Quevega. One to watch in the betting.
Gelding by Spanish Moon out of a Linamix mare related to Laurina - winner at the Cheltenham festival - and money spinning French hurdler Danse Avec Jersey. Well beaten on debut and easily dismissed.
Daughter of Flemensfirth out of a an Oscar mare related to Tidal Bay, Waiting Patiently and The Flame winner at Southwell on Saturday. Will possibly need the experience here.
Cheap mare by Court Cave, cheap €3,800 purchase as a three-year-old and unlikely to play a role in the finish in this contest.
Daughter of Stowaway out of a Perugio mare related to dour types Hidden Cyclone and Outlander. Fourth of eight on debut in a Tramore maiden hurdle last month and expected to improve on that run.
