Point-to-point winner in May 2016 and off the mark over hurdles at the fourth attempt when winning over an extended 2m4f at Wexford in May. Promising fourth of 15 on chasing debut when last seen in June. Market likely to be the best guide.
Winner of one of his seven starts over hurdles and closely related to chase winners Ucello Conti and the Noel Meade-trained Disko. Market likely to reveal expectations.
Made a couple of appearances at the Galway festival without success and has largely failed to build on a promising chasing debut at Downpatrick in June. Place claims.
Veteran of five chase starts without success hitting the frame on just one occasion. Vast improvement needed to figure.
Lost his place at the 10th obstacle before weakening and pulling up before two out when losing his action earlier this month. Well-being can be only taken on trust.
Unable to halt alarming slide in form recently over hurdles with four heavy defeats this term. Beaten 17L on chasing introduction in a 2m6f Tramore beginners contest earlier this month. Tough ask and others preferred.
Bumper winner on good ground in April last year. Fair form over hurdles recently and third of seven on chase bow at Wexford before a disappointing 34L defeat at the Galway festival earlier this month.
Fell, when beaten, on chase debut back in September before a 35L defeat on second chase start at Punchestown when last seen in June. Plenty to prove at present.
Rallied well in the closing stages on a promising chase debut at Clonmel in June before disappointing in a 2m4f Tramore novice chase last month beaten 30L. Hard to fancy on latest evidence.
Improved dramatically to win a maiden hurdle by 20L at Limerick last month. Interesting that he is now sent straight over fences and there is quite possibly plenty more to come.
Blundered and unseated at the ninth on chasing debut at the Galway festival earlier this month. hard to see him getting competitive in this company.
Recently been plying his trade on the Flat and is just one from 13 over hurdles. Unlikely to play a role here on chasing bow.
Got off the mark over hurdles at the fifth time of asking in May. Half-brother to winning jumpers Mountainous and One For Arthur. Market likely to be the best guide on chasing debut.
Regressing 118-rated hurdler and makes his first chasing start here for a stable without a winner over fences this season.
Winner of a 2m3f Limerick maiden hurdle on good ground in May getting off the mark at the fourth time of asking for leading yard. Expected to be well prepped for chasing introduction.
