One from seven over the larger obstacles and out of form towards the end of last season. Still 6lb higher than his last winning mark and possibly will need the run here.
Three from 24 over fences and losing chase sequence goes back to January 2015 when landing a Naas handicap off a 10lb higher mark. Looks vulnerable in this company.
Course winner who has also won over the trip. Well held over the summer in a Number of desolate efforts. Looks up against it here.
Winner of a handicap hurdle here over 12-months ago. Holds solid chase form winning a Tipperary beginners contest in July 2016. Looks open to improvement.
Hit a flat spot in a Fairyhouse handicap chase when last seen in January despite showing plenty of promise previously. Has the form to make a bold bid.
Nothing of note in four dismal displays over fences since June. Will need to raise overall performance to play a role here.
Nothing of note in the summer over hurdles but has been victorious in his last couple of chase starts over 12-months ago off an 8lb lower mark. Strong place claims on return over the larger obstacles.
Combative veteran chaser who has career figures of two from 37 and races just 3lb higher than his last winning mark. Can't be completely ruled out.
Moderate promise only in five starts over fences before a promising third of 11 in a Punchestown handicap chase earlier this month. Likeable type and should be in the mix.
Failed to build on a gallant second of nine at Wexford in July when finishing down the field at Killarney and at Roscommon earlier this month. Opposable on recent form.
19-race maiden and without success in four disappointing efforts over the larger obstacles. Liable to find a couple stronger.
Losing run now totals 30 and the veteran is still without success in 16 starts over fences. Plenty more needed in this company.
