Course winner that has won over the trip being a dual distance victor. Out of form in a summer jumping campaign last year and a watching brief on return.
Distance winner who tends to struggle on this type of ground and unlikely to play a role in the finish here.
Very modest 118-rated hurdler who is related to sturdy chasers Eastlake and Salsify. Not fluent on chasing debut when finishing sixth of 11 beaten 33L at Killarney earlier this month. Plenty more needed.
131-rated hurdler and has been generally out of sorts since returning to the track in February. Best watched on chasing debut.
Very poor 80-rated hurdler who looks well out of his depth here on chasing debut in first-time hood.
Won four of his 12 starts over hurdles but is yet to trouble the judge in ten starts over the larger obstacles. Place claims at best in a poor renewal.
145-rated hurdler winning four of his 28 starts. Solid form over timber at the distance and in fields of this size. Market likely to reveal expectations on chasing debut.
Solid win and place form on the going, in the class, on the track, over the trip and in fields of this size for leading owner, trainer and jockey combination. Interesting chasing recruit.
Ended the season on a low note when finishing last of 16 beaten 38L at Leopardstown in October but bounced back to form earlier this month in a Clonmel handicap on the Flat. 146-rated hurdler and is worth noting in the betting.
No impression on the leaders when making a mistake on chasing debut in a Ballinrobe beginners earlier this month. Expected to improve for that run but needs to step up once again.
124L adrift of Ballinabearna on return to the track following a two year absence in a Limerick handicap hurdle before unseating on chasing debut last month at Cork. Others preferred.
Modest 105-rated hurdler who finished 14th of 15 on chasing debut when last seen on the track in a Tramore beginners chase in August 2017. Vast improvement needed to figure.
Distance winner who was a 119-rated hurdler during a summer jumping campaign last year. Market likely to be the best guide on chasing debut.
Struggled since returning to the track and starting his chasing career in two starts in the last month both at Kilbeggan and those performances don't warrant support here.
First Reserve: Modest hurdler rated 98 currently but fair form figures in the class she has been running in. Worth a market check on chasing debut.
