Distance winner of a Down Royal maiden hurdle back in March getting off the mark over timber at the 17th time of asking. Rates a leading contender here.
Three wins from 16 hurdle starts and has shown decent form this season finishing runner-up on two occasions at Clonmel and Wexford in May. One to consider in this company.
Winner of two of his four hurdle starts this term including a ¾L defeat of St Lawrence Gap last month. Life more difficult off new mark but very much a leading player here.
Won over both hurdles and fences during the last calendar year including a win over C&D in April off a 1lb lower mark. Worth considering if forgiving last run at the Galway festival earlier this month.
Winner over hurdles in France but will have disappointed connections in a couple of dismal displays since last month for new yard. First-time hood unlikely to improve the mare.
Winner of two of her 12 spins over hurdles the most recent coming in a 2m Limerick handicap on soft ground in October off a 6lb lower mark. Each way chances if forgiving last tough ask at the Galway festival earlier this month.
Has produced a number of laboured runs for connections since last month and it is hard to see him making any significant impact here.
Comes here on a hat-trick of wins following a couple of victory's at Downpatrick last month. Racing off a 7lb higher mark than first win the gelding is not ruled out here.
Busy gelding who found a contest at the Galway festival last month one question too many but the C&D winner has conditions to suit here and could take some stopping in current form.
C&D winner in June beating nine rivals off a 3lb lower mark. Beaten since but dangerous if building on victory here.
