Still in contention on chasing debut when falling two out at Limerick before unseating when third of nine at Galway last month. Could go well if jumping fluently now back over hurdles.
Running in Britain on his last four starts which included a win in a 2m2f Flat handicap at Chepstow in August. Needs to hurdle better if landing a blow here.
Landed a 12/1 shock over C&D earlier this month off a 6lb lower mark and needs to prove his consistency in this group.
C&D winner of a handicap hurdle on soft ground over 12-months ago off a 14lb lower mark. Has continued to improve since but has a below-par run at Gowran Park last month to put behind him.
Four-race maiden over hurdles who was not disgraced in a Roscommon maiden hurdle last month finishing third of 17 on good ground over 2m4f. Can go well but may find one or two better suited to today conditions.
2m2f Kilbeggan maiden hurdle winner on good ground who has bettered that form in handicaps since, and deservedly back on the scoresheet at Cork earlier this month. *Third of seven, Fairyhouse on Wednesday.
Lightly-raced gelding spent 18 months on the sidelines before returning to action in May. Plenty of promise on most recent start in a Galway handicap hurdle last month and one for the shortlist.
Produced a career-best when winning eight-runner handicap chase at Listowel in September over 2m1f on soft going. Last hurdle win came in July off a 3lb lower mark but looks opposable in current form.
