Still in there pitching when making a terrible mistake three fences from home and unseating his rider. Capable of getting involved if his jumping holds up today.
50/1 but still travelling well when coming down three out on chasing debut last time. Clearly needs to jump better but interesting to see how he goes with a clear round.
Modest 108-rated hurdler now reaching the veteran stage of his career and without a win in his five chase starts to date. Very little to be positive about.
Blinkers went on for the first time on chasing debut at Wexford three weeks ago. Well beaten there and needs much more to be involved.
Improving hurdler who put in a career best when winning a handicap hurdle at Wexford two weeks ago. Makes chasing debut today and type to do well in this sphere and is very much respected.
Won a handicap hurdle at Clonmel recently when not unbacked on return to the track following a six-month break. Nowhere near as good on two subsequent starts and now makes his chasing debut.
Has shown real improvement over hurdles of late and won an eight-runner handicap hurdle at Tramore last month. Makes chasing debut today and likely to go well.
Fair hurdler but bombed out on chasing debut at Wexford 18 days ago. Clearly needs to do much more but surely capable of better at some stage.
Makes chasing debut today. Form over hurdles of late has really tailed off and needs the switch to fences to spark him into life. Does have the potential to do better.
Ran well on chasing debut at Clonmel last month when finishing fourth of 14. Davy Russell booked and every chance of some improvement to come now. Player
Has shown significant promise in all three chase starts so far to date. Should come on for his return and will be a leading contender here if getting a clearer run.
Had a couple of starts for Dan Skelton but starts life for his new yard today. Has experience on side but may be vulnerable to a couple of improvers here.
