Four from 30 over the larger obstacles but has not won for over 18-months, when winning a Roscommon 3m½f on good to firm ground off a 5lb higher mark. Not getting any younger.
Two from 14 over fences but has been badly out of form recently suffering heavy defeats this term. Very little to be positive about.
Running well in defeat in two of her three chases this season, hitting the frame at Tramore and Wexford. Another bold show likely with place claims to boot.
Turned out quickly following a perhaps fortunate win at Fairyhouse on Monday after being left at the last. Appears to be improving and likely to run well again here.
Useful 112-rated handicap hurdler but was readily seen off in a couple of chase efforts in August which leaves him needing vast improvement in this company.
Gelding who has been running well in defeat and deserves a change of luck. Capable of hitting the frame here.
Has failed to build on initial promise of finishing second of 11 at Downpatrick in June with a number of desolate efforts since. Hard to place any faith in.
Combative veteran chaser who has career figures of two from 38 whose last win came off a 3lb lower mark in August. Sure to run his race once again.
C&D winner who is one from nine over the larger obstacles. Well held on the Flat latest on the AW at Dundalk last month and hard to fancy in this company.
Course winner whose sole win over fences came at Downpatrick in June off a 14lb lower mark. Inconsistent sort who could grab a place.
