Well placed in a couple of beginners chases in the spring and may have needed the run at Listowel on return last month. Enters calculations.
Big prices and beaten a very long way on first few starts, including tailing off at Punchestown on Tuesday. Others preferred.
Point-to-point winner but still a maiden after 27 starts under Rules including a trio of defeats over fences. Likely to struggle here.
Well held on chasing debut over C&D and has been absent for over 12-months which has to be a concern.
Finished in the runner-up position in a couple point-to-point starts in the spring and market likely to be best guide on debut here.
Fifth of 11 in a promising chase debut at Downpatrick last month. Will look to improve in first-time cheekpieces.
Generally well beaten in his last couple of hurdle starts which doesn't hold much hope for second chase run here.
Well held in four hurdle starts since February despite finishing positions. Expected to run well on chasing debut for leading trainer/jockey combination.
