Course winner that has also won over the trip but remains without success in three starts over the larger obstacles. Not getting any younger and hard to fancy.
14-race maiden and without a win in six chase starts to date. Weakened alarmingly to be pulled up on a couple of occasions last month and has a bit to prove at present.
Well down the field in two chase starts recently and first time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Moderate 108-rated handicap hurdler while his two chase starts didn't go to plan when last seen over 12-months ago. Difficult to make a case for on return.
Modest in a number of maiden hurdle starts and hard to construct much of a case for the gelding on stable and chasing debut.
Did manage to win a handicap hurdle at Clonmel in October, but that was a low-grade affair, and he's been well held since over the larger obstacles recently.
Plenty to like about the Kalanisi geldings performance on second chase start at Wexford recently. Should be a leading contender in this company.
Modest hurdler but took the eye when finishing third of 18 beaten 7¾L in a Cork beginners chase last month on yielding ground. Capable of running a big race.
Gelding who has been running well in defeat and deserves a change of luck. Liable to find one or two better suited to conditions here.
Has struggled in a couple of starts since returning to action following a 12-month absence. Looks vulnerable in this company.
Poor 80-rated handicap hurdler who has been running well in a number of point-to-point appearances recently. Looks a tall order on chasing debut.
Course winner that has also won over this trip. Without a win in nine chase starts and best watched here on first start for over 14-months.
Poor form in a series of grim performances this season including a 57L defeat over hurdles at Cork when last seen in August.. Plenty to find on recent offerings.
Chasing debut for inadequate 85-rated handicap hurdler. Hard to construct much of a case for the mare in this contest.
