Disappointed on his last start when something clearly amiss in a Gowran Park handicap hurdle when finishing last of nine in February. Could be a struggle off top weight here.
Fifth of 10 on the Flat recently and a promising third of 12 over 2m3f in a Downpatrick handicap hurdle last month. Place claims with solid form in the book.
Distance winner who sports first-time cheekpieces here in a bid to get to gain her third win over hurdles in seven starts. Worth a market check.
Solid and consistent in a couple of seasonal starts winning a Ballnrobe maiden hurdle in May 10L ahead of Friday's winner at Downpatrick, Touch Base. Shortlisted on handicap debut.
Course winner that has also won over the distance but the nine-year-old finds himself 13lb lower than his last winning mark over hurdles. Place claims at best.
Can still only boast the one win from 13 hurdle starts and finished well down the field on his last start over timber in May. Out of sorts recently and this looks a tough ask.
Lightly raced eight-year-old who is one win from nine over hurdles. Coming back down to a winning mark but has plenty to prove here.
Distance winner of a Down Royal handicap hurdle two years ago but has generally struggled since over this trip. Not consistent enough but is back on a winning mark here.
