Had been running well prior to two heavy defeats on most recent starts. Has the ability to be in the shake up here if you can forgive those defeats and maybe better ground will suit more.
Chasing debut did not go to plan last week when unseating his rider at the first fence. Hurdles form prior to that is below what would be required here so needs to step forward.
Running well in similar events without wining when last seen nine months ago. Presumably has been kept back for this better ground and although he may need the run, is a player all the same.
Average hurdler who has failed to trouble the judge in that sphere. Likely to find this fairly tough going on chasing debut. Others preferred.
Had struggled in a couple of chase starts for Jessica Harrington before switch to this new yard. Beaten 44L on stable debut and whilst the ability is there, she needs to show more than that to be of interest.
Potential to be a better chaser than she was a hurdler (rated 100) but jumping errors have blunted her chances so far over fences. Good chance handicaps will be more suitable on the back of this.
Possibility she is flattered by her hurdles rating and has had a poor start to the year. Slightly better last time over an inadequate trip and this is more suitable for her chasing debut. Likes this ground and will be interesting to see how she goes
Moderate over hurdles and shown very little over fences so far. Tongue tie goes on and returns from a five month break but will need to do much more to trouble some of these.
