One place from four C&D starts and losing run now goes back two years. Without a win or a place over the larger obstacles and has work to do on current form.
Tailed off in a couple of beginner chases recently and the Kalanisi gelding is worth a market check on handicap debut in a wide open contest.
Running well in defeat in a couple of spins around Thurles last month. Gives the impression we may not have seen the best of him yet.
Point-to-point winner but still a maiden after 28 starts under Rules including four defeats over fences. Likely to struggle here.
Generally well held in five seasonal handicap chase starts. Not getting any younger and well below-par form looks set to continue here.
Has struggled in a number of laboured displays since returning to the track in April and may find this a tough assignment.
Well beaten in a couple of hunter chase start before a heavy defeat at Galway in September. Still worth a market check on handicap debut.
Some promise show as a point-to-pointer but soundly beaten in three starts under rules. Winner over hurdles last month but needs to improve over the larger obstacles.
Pulled up over fences on his last four outings including at Uttoxeter over 3m on heavy ground when last seen 12-months ago. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.
Failed in her hat-trick bid when finishing a well beaten 19L at Galway in October. Front runner, who will attempt to make all.
Veteran who got back to winning ways in the mud at Clonmel in March, but hasn't made the same impact in three subsequent starts. No surprise to see him hit the frame.
Followed up a solid run over 2m6½f when landing a Thurles maiden hurdle last month over 2m6f. Without a win in eight chase starts and could find one or two better handicapped sorts lurking.
Sole win over fences came in a Tipperary hunter chase over three years ago. First time blinkers doubtful to bring about the required amount of progress needed to play a role here.
16 race maiden beaten into fourth off a mark of 76 in a handicap chase at Tramore over 2m in August. Plenty to find on ratings.
Sole chase win came in a Downpatrick handicap 18-months ago off an 8lb higher mark. Regressive of late and others make more appeal.
Put in her best performance for quite some time when finishing third of 16 in a Sligo handicap chase over 3m before being pulled up for the third time in four starts at Downpatrick when last seen in September. Others look more convincing.
