Best effort over fences when second to Camelia de Cotte in a mares' event at Listowel (2m4f) in September. Didn't need to improve to win at Tipperary last time, and has more on her plate with a penalty.
Went the wrong way initially over fences, but better than ever when winning a 2m1f handicap chase at Sligo in September, and found further improvement to be second at Down Royal. Has a penalty to shoulder here, but not dismissed.
Hurdles winner who was a creditable third on belated chase debut at Limerick in July. Normally reliable, but has run poorly on the Flat and over hurdles on his last two starts, and seems in a lull for now.
Won a maiden hurdle at Tramore in April, and set to make a winning start in this sphere when falling at the last there on return. Sure to go close if that heavy fall hasn't left a mark.
A five-time winner earlier in his career on Flat/over hurdles, but struggling for form at present, and flattered by proximity when tried over fences on penultimate start.
Fairly useful hurdler when on song, and didn't have things go his way on chase debut at Galway last month. Entitled to do better over fences, but others preferred.
Signs of ability over the larger obstacles in beginners contests at Ballinrobe and Limerick in May, although entitled to need this after a break, and will find easier opportunities.
Made all to score on second chase start at Downpatrick (2m3f) on penultimate start, and was leading Monatomic and going well when falling at Tramore last time. Can go well if avoiding errors.
