Well beaten 33L on debut when last seen in May for previous yard. Should make his presence felt on first stable start, with top jockey in plate.
Flemensfirth gelding out of a Sea Raven mare. Yard suffering this season and the five-year-old is unlikely to play a part in the finish in this contest.
Useful in the point-to-point ranks and there was plenty to like about his second of 10 in a Wexford maiden hurdle on stable debut last month when beaten ½L. In the hands of powerful owners and capable of running a big race.
Not disgraced in his last couple of starts but has generally flattered to deceive since August. Place claims at best once again given a detailed look at the opposition.
Another making his second start for leading trainer in this event. Well down the field in a Listowel maiden over 2m in September and appears to need plenty of improvement in this contest.
Fine form in a number of point-to-point starts in the last 12-months. Pulled up, when weakening quickly with a circuit to go in a Tipperary hunter chase over 2m7f on soft ground when last seen in May. Market to reveal expectations.
Possibly needed the experience on debut in a Limerick maiden hurdle in May when 32L adrift of the winner, Bang Bang Rosie on good ground. Vast improvement needed to figure.
