Won over hurdles at the fifth time of asking with the step up in trip possibly working the oracle for the six-year-old beating 13 rivals in a Wexford maiden hurdle before finishing well down the field at Ballinrobe when last seen in July.

Strung together three good efforts over timber in the summer without getting his head in front. Out of luck at Gowran Park when last seen in June but worth a market check.

Second of 16 in this contest 12-months ago off a similar mark. Respected in first-time cheekpieces with significant jockey booking.

Winner of just one of her 12 hurdle starts and had been well off the pace at Limerick and Tramore when last seen in the spring. Looks a tall order on return.

Beaten by a nose earlier this month in a 3m½f Roscommon handicap hurdle on good ground. Raised 3lb for the run but can make a bold bid to get off the mark at the ninth time of asking in first-time blinkers.

C&D winner and winner of this contest 12-months ago off a 4lb lower mark but has failed to finish in her last three chase starts. Not seen since June and hard to fancy.

Still showing plenty of zest despite his advancing years not disgraced in a number of starts recently in the spring before a 32L defeat on return to action last month.

Distance winner who has looked at odds with the game in her two most recent starts. Not ruled out but a couple of below-par runs to put behind her.

Distance winner who is in good form currently running Can't Be Done to 1L in a Ballinrobe handicap hurdle last month. More expected here for leading owner.

Well held in three maiden hurdle starts before disappointing connections further when finishing down the field in a number of handicaps, despite latest finishing position. May find it tough going once again.

Beate Theatre World 1L off a 6lb lower mark at Ballinrobe last month over 3m1f. Sure to go well once again and is open to plenty of improvement.

Modest form in three hurdle starts to date - well beaten when second of 11 - and will need to raise overall performance to play a role in this contest.

Not much to shout about in a number of dismal starts for previous yard and disappointed new connections when going down by 40L at Cork last month. Opposable.

Second Reserve: Paid the price for an 11L victory at Ballinrobe in May when failing to handle the 9lb hike in the weights on return to the track last month, beaten 41L. Tough ask.

Betting

Forecast

Theatre World (3/1), Cappacon (7/2), I Will Follow (4/1), Goodnightngodbless (5/1), Can't Be Done (8/1), Silver Planeur (10/1), About You (10/1), Tipp Toe (10/1), Arch Stanton (12/1), Open To The World (14/1), Oh'herewego (20/1), Court Tycoon (20/1), Gold Smoke (20/1), Triangle Rock (20/1), The Last Armada (20/1), Whitber's Choice (20/1), Odit (20/1), Lily Trotter (25/1), Bye Bye O Bye (25/1), Letter Of Credit (33/1), Paulie C (33/1)

Verdict

Not a great deal of pace in the race and it may be left to Triangle Rock to take the field along with Court Tycoon and Open To The World settling in behind. The pace could set up for a bunch finish which may affect the hat-trick seeking Cappacon off a career high mark of 103. First time blinkered Arch Stanton and the J P McManus-owned GOODNIGHTNGODBLESS can fight out the finish with preference for the latter who will also be reversing places with Can't Be Done.
  1. Goodnightngodbless
  2. Arch Stanton
