Scored over fences at Downpatrick (2m7f) in June and bounced back from some lesser efforts at shorter to get back on the scoresheet at Gowran (3m1f) recently. Had the race run to suit there, and all out to score, so vulnerable now.
In frame on first three starts after a break in August/September, and stepped up to win a handicap chase at Roscommon last time 6½L from Mill Quest. Up 9lb, but a big player if she can repeat that display.
Fell on return to fences at Tramore in August, but placed on both starts since, albeit lacking the finishing pace of winner on both occasions. Return to this trip ought to suit.
Won a 2m3f handicap chase at Downpatrcik in August, and better effort since when 12¾L fourth of 12 to Dont Kick Nor Bite. Now 10lb better off with that rival, so not without claims.
Won 2m beginners chase at Clonmel in June, and heavily backed returned to fences at Navan last month only to take a heavy fall at the first. Must prove he's over that nasty experience.
Admirably consistent, and back from a break at top of her form of late, finishing second of 7 to Ellie Mac in 2½m novice chase at Tipperary last time. Sure to give it her best shot again.
Winner of a Limerick mares handicap chase in April 2017, and right back on track when making most to be second to Cecil Corbett at Gowran recently. Needs to prove she can repeat that from 3lb higher mark.
Benefited from a tongue tie when a back-to-form second at Limerick in April, and went one better at Kilbeggan next time. Off more than five months, and that aid is missing now.
Excelled himself from out of the handicap at Navan last month, but failed to confirm that improvement next time, and not one to bank on given inconsistent profile.
