Winner at Dundalk in February, bit below form there most recently. Likes to get on with things and good pilot on board for those tactics. Up in trip and may bounce back.

Won a couple of times over hurdles last year, overall record on the Flat is patchy and was poor on the AW at Dundalk when last spotted in October.

Yet to win a Flat race on turf, but solid effort at Dundalk (1m4f, AW) in March and has to enter calculations from same mark today, worth watching in betting with champion apprentice on.

Winner at Navan in September over this trip, his sole success in 10 attempts on turf so far. 2lb above that mark today and liable to find a couple too strong.

Could be given a squeak on best efforts, but some time since he's been able to showcase those and probably best passed over dropping back from 2m.

Winner over similar trip on good to firm at Limerick in June last year, just 2lb higher here and has run some useful races on the AW, in the mix here.

Has won over hurdles, sent off 100/1 chance in 1m maiden at this track on heavy going recently, makes first foray into Flat handicaps now and market check needed.

22 appearances on the Flat without recording that first win, has the form to challenge at best however. Disappointing last month over C&D on testing going.

Winner over extended-mile here in October on soft to heavy, very poor last month over same trip on bottomless ground. Better since on AW at Dundalk, this trip remains a question mark for now.

Still waiting on the breakthrough after 17 starts on the Flat, fair effort last time in a claimer at Clonmel but this is tougher and looks vulnerable.

Failed to build on a promising third of nine at Killarney last August in four disappointing displays at the end of the campaign. Some promise again no reappearance at Clonmel but more needed up in trip.

Verdict

KONIG HALL is rated 2lb higher than when scoring on similar ground at Limerick in just last year and is making his first Flat start on turf since. He's run some decent races on the AW in between times and could be able to put up another good showing in a race of this nature back on the turf. Noble Intention commands a second look with Oisin Orr based on his most recent Dundalk effort while Pari Passu is another worth keeping an eye on back up in distance. Lomi's Law and Ar Eagla Na Heagla get themselves on the shortlist too.
  1. Konig Hall
  2. Noble Intention
  3. Ar Eagla Na Heagla
