Only got as far as the second fence when attempting to follow up on a facile win at Limerick in April. Another bold show likely if jumping fluently.
Won a hurdle race in testing conditions at Down Royal almost a year ago but hasn't looked like adding to his tally in four chases for a new yard. Needs to improve significantly.
Failed to build on an encouraging seasonal debut at Tipperary when not looking himself in a Ballinrobe handicap chase last month. Better than that run suggests and one for the shortlist.
Won a 14-runner beginners chase here last month when ridden to go clear on the run in and another bold show looks likely on handicap debut.
Still without a win in six starts over the larger obstacles and disappointed last time out here over 2m when fourth of nine beaten over 6L last month. Tough ask and other preferred.
Distance winner of a Limerick handicap chase off a 5lb lower mark when taking care of six rivals in April. Well beaten since and looks a tall order on recent form.
Winner of a 2m3½f chase here in May and put in a gallant performance at Kilbeggan to finish fourth of 13 beaten 5L earlier this month. Fell at the first recently at Downpatrick and not one to totally leave out of calculations.
Lightly raced nine-year-old and hard to fancy based on recent point-to-point start last month in his first start for two years.
Distance winner who has shown nothing in a couple of handicap chases last month well down the field on both occasions. Very little to be positive about.
Finished first past the post here last month when eventually disqualified in a handicap chase over 2m. Shapes like the step up in trip will suit and entitled to make the shortlist here.
Has struggled in a number of laboured displays since returning to the track in April and may find this a tough assignment.
Distance winner who was beaten favourite earlier this month on one of his many Hexham raids finishing down the field in a 2m4f handicap chase. Place claims on best form.
