Has produced three solid handicap chase performances since February running Spare Brakes and Luckyinmilan close. Beaten favourite last time out at Tramore last month but able claimer in the plate a positive.

C&D winner here last month when beating six rivals finishing 1½L ahead of Erkindale Lady before disappointing when taking a large step up in class at Punchestown last month. Worth a market check dropping down in grade.

Distance winner who had been running without being disgraced last year before a shuddering defeat when weakening four out in a Cork handicap chase last month. Not out of it back on preferred ground.

Modest 108-rated hurdler who is without a win in three chase starts and is generally at home running at Killarney. Plenty needed here to play a role in the finish.

5/1
Maiden hurdle winner who has found some consistency over fences after disappointing on her first couple of starts over the larger obstacles. Promising second of 11 beaten a short-head in a Kilbeggan handicap chase last month. Should be in the mix.

16/1
114-rated hurdler in his pomp back in 2016 but has generally struggled since and left the yard of Christy Roche at the end of last year. Winner of a Sligo handicap chase following a break in August last year and could be of interest here.

Well beaten but not disgraced in a number of handicap chases' last year and could be a place prospect being a dual good ground winner.

Well beaten and not a lot to shout about in four poor chasing displays since the turn of the year. Vast improvement needed to figure.

Evergreen veteran who won a Tipperary handicap hurdle on good ground in April 2015 but may find a couple stronger over the larger obstacles.

9/1
Course winner who has produced a number of laboured run since the start of the year including making plenty of mistakes in a Clonmel handicap chase in March. Plenty to prove in this company.

Open point-to-to point winner in May last year but has disappointed connections in a series of hunter and handicap chase displays since including a 43L defeat at Clonmel in March. Others preferred.

Poor form in a series of dismal performances over the larger obstacles have left the seven-year-old without a win in three chase starts.

First Reserve: Won a Thurles chase on just his second handicap start over 2m2f. May have needed the run on seasonal return when pulled up before two out and not easily dismissed.

Second Reserve: C&D winner in May last year off a 7lb lower mark but the gutsy ten-year-old has generally struggled since bar another decent performance here on St Stephens Day. Place claims at best.

Third Reserve: Winner of three of his 15 chase starts but his last success dates back to a Tramore handicap chase over 2m6f and difficult to fancy still racing off a 3lb higher mark.
