16:55 Listowel Thu 13 September 2018
Three starts so far over fences and all three have been disappointing. Returns here from another break and needs to do plenty more to be involved.
Glimmers of ability in maiden hurdles so far and seems to handle this testing ground well. Cheekpieces added for chasing debut and has potential to go well.
An 11-race maiden over hurdles, he hasn't tended to find a lot in the latter part of his races and would be tough to recommend starting out in this new discipline.
Fell and pulled up on first two chase starts before being tailed off at Galway last time. Much more needed and handicaps will be a better option.
Fell on final start over hurdles and similar story on first chase start at Listowel two days ago. Big price there and likely to be here too.
Has shown promise so far over fences and handles this type of ground having won on it in points. Returns from a lay off but capable of going well if fit and ready.
Showed a fair level of form over hurdles and a similar story too over fences so far. Just failed as the odds-on favourite at Kilbeggan three weeks ago. Similar effort will see him in the mix.
Progressive hurdler who makes chasing debut today on the back of a seven-month break. Fitness needs to be taken on trust but type to do well in this sphere and market check needed.
Has some bits and pieces of form which make him of strong interest in this contest. Looked in need of the run on return to action two weeks ago and that should have blown away any cobwebs. Leading player.
Having won a maiden hurdle at Wexford in June he ran really well on chasing debut at Killarney last time when a close up second. Any improvement on that makes him a major player here.
Jumping has been a slight issue so far over fences but clearly has ability. Not far behind Pallaskenry last time and those two remain closely matched on that piece of form. Cheekpieces added to tongue-tie.
Ran well enough on chase debut on the back of a break at Kilbeggan last month. Should strip fitter now and one to note especially if strong in the market.
Steadily improving over fences at a lowly level. Likely to find a few of these a bit too strong and up against it.
