Unlike his yard, the Milan gelding is in good form recently, winning a Southwell handicap hurdle last month before going down by a short-head at Thurles earlier this month. Step back up in trip sure to suit.
C&D winner earlier this month beating 11 rivals 4L on good ground off a 6lb lower mark. Open to plenty of improvement in this form.
Missed the whole of 2017 and has been disappointing in a couple of hurdle starts since her return to action in September. Looks vulnerable in this company.
Beaten on latest start but plenty to like about his win over 2m5½f in a Tramore maiden off a 4lb lower mark last month. Needs to raise overall handicap performances.
Course winner in February off a 13lb lower mark winning by 21L in a 17-runner handicap. Has paid the price for the wide-margin success and may struggle in this contest.
Chasing more recently and well held in a couple of dismal hurdle efforts last month. Out of form recently and hard to fancy.
Solid effort last time out on handicap debut in a Downpatrick hurdle over 2m3f on good ground when last seen in September. Will look to improve with conditions to suit.
Well beaten - despite finishing position - on a British trip to Wetherby over 2m5½f in a novice handicap hurdle earlier this month. Market likely to be the best guide.
Has been left toiling in a number of starts since returning to action in August, sent off at big double figure prices. Hard to construct much of a case for the gelding in this contest.
Four-race maiden hurdler who showed glimmers of improvement on his most recent start in a Gowran Park hurdle on handicap debut last month. May find this a tough assignment.
