C&D winner who has been badly out of form in a number of disappointing displays over hurdles since April. Hard to place any faith in.
Been in good form since the turn of the year and gained a deserved win for his efforts at Fairyhouse in April. Gallant fourth of 11 when last seen in May and rates a leading contender in this contest.
Course winner that has also won over this trip. Last seen finishing 61L, last of eight at Killarney in July and may need the run on return.
Lightly-raced over the larger obstacles and ran well in defeat when finishing fifth of 15 at Ballinrobe in May. Could go well at a price.
Appeared to peak in 2016 for previous connections with the veteran struggling in a couple of chases in the spring and on return to action earlier this month. Capable of a big run.
One from five over the larger obstacles, more recently seen on the Flat and over hurdles. First-time cheekpieces make spark a resurgence in form.
One from five over the distance and landed a Clonmel contest off a 6lb lower mark earlier this month. Well held since but more than capable of having a say in this company.
Two chase wins came way back in 2015 in novice company. Beaten 58L on return to action at Navan earlier this month and liable to find a couple stronger.
Three-time chase winner, the most recent over 2m6½f at Punchestown over 12-months ago off an 8lb lower mark. Place claims.
Not won since scoring over fences in 2014 and has been out of form in four starts in 2018 over hurdles. Tough ask back over the larger obstacles.
