Tailed off on both his starts to date at Cork and Killarney last month and hard to fancy unless market suggests otherwise.
Poor bumper form will have disappointed connections and nothing of encouragement on maiden hurdle start at Tramore earlier this month. Needs more here.
Inconsistent maiden from the Flat who has shown little over hurdles including well held on handicap debut in a Tipperary hurdle finishing 11th of 14. Others preferred.
12 race maiden showed signs of ability in maiden hurdle company last autumn including a 61L defeat at Punchestown when last seen in October. Best watched on return to the track.
Well held in two weak looking bumpers at Punchestown and Killarney. Requires a chunk of improvement to play a role in this contest.
Not disgraced in three defeats in promising maiden hurdle starts last month and earlier this month when finishing third of 15 beaten 7¾L at Tramore. Deserves a change of luck.
Pulled-up on sole point-to-point start and made no impression on maiden hurdle debut at Punchestown last month. Looks opposable.
Nothing of any note in two dismal maiden hurdle performances at Tipperary and a 38L defeat at Tramore earlier this month. Looks up against it here.
Well held in four career hurdles starts to date and it is hard to see him making any significant impact.
Not disgraced on the Flat recently following on from sole start over timber when finishing fifth of 10 beaten 41L in a Fairyhouse maiden hurdle over 2m in February.
Highly tried in a couple of Graded juvenile hurdles but well beaten on both occasions. Form of Fairyhouse maiden hurdle in November does put him in the mix here.
Daughter of Lonhro out of a Danehill mare went for just £800 at Ascot in December 2016. Well held in a point-to-point and on racecourse debut in a Limerick bumper.
Dragon Pulse filly out of a Val Royal mare related to Pulsating and Italian Group 3 winner Aethos but very little in the way of national hunt progeny to date.
Daughter of Arcadio out of a Presenting mare related to the likes of Denman and War Of Attrition. No impression on leaders on debut in a Fairyhouse maiden hurdle in April. Tough ask here.
Modest flat performer generally well beaten in four career starts on turf. Hard to make a case for on hurdling debut.
Has struggled in three bumper starts to date beaten over 23L on each occasion. Hard to fancy until showing a hint of ability.
First Reserve: Cheap purchase last year but is related to a winning pointer and there's other winners on the dam's side. Not disgraced on debut in a Cork maiden hurdle over 2m last month.
Second Reserve: Modest 65-rated handicapper on the Flat and tailed off on his second start over hurdles when last seen in December finishing last of 19 beaten 123L. Others preferred.
