20:25 Downpatrick Fri 18 May 2018
Course winner who finished second of six in a 2m3½f hunter chase at Down Royal in March before a defeat at the same track earlier in the month. Repeat of March form puts him in the mix here.
Beaten favourite behind Sizing Rome in a Down Royal hunter chase earlier this month over 2m6f on good ground and 3¼L ahead of Clondaw Frisby.
Strong and impressive winner of a Tramore hunter chase last month winning by 7L before a disappointing 34L defeat earlier this month when upped in trip at Tipperary on soft ground. Place claim if others falter.
Beaten 19L on stable debut in a Downpatrick hunter chase finishing fourth of five in March before a facile win with a couple of these behind in a Down Royal hunter chase earlier in the month. Another bold show looks likely.
Going well in a number of point-to-point starts but pulled up in his last hunter chase start last month at Cork before. Looks opposable.
Third of 11 beaten 13L finishing ahead of Macs Legend at Tipperary earlier this month. Market likely to be best guide on second start for the stable.
Finished ahead of Ajijic in a point-to-point last May. Has missed a lot of racing since and best watched in this contest.
Capable point-to-pointer but was well behind a few of these in the Down Royal hunter chase earlier this month 33L behind Sizing Rome. Plenty to prove in this company.
Managed to win a point-to-point last month but hard to see him making any significant impact in this company.
