Decent novice last season for Mouse Morris, winning back-to-back Naas contests over 2m4f in January/February. Out of sorts since including a heavy defeat at Limerick over Christmas.
Lost his way before the end of his time with Noel Meade but useful on his day, as seen when winning at the Punchestown Festival last season over a similar trip. Always in rear at Cheltenham in December and easily passed over here.
Won his maiden hurdle at Navan in September over 2m. Beaten when stepped up in to Grade 3 company in November, but has the form to make a bold bid in this company.
Won a Downpatrick novice hurdle in June on good ground. Beaten since but plenty to like about his performances and likely to go well here.
Winner of a Sligo maiden hurdle over 2m4f in August on hurdles bow. Beaten since but step up in trip could suit.
Bought from Willie Mullins for just £3,000 at the sales in November. Well beaten and no impression in a couple of recent handicap hurdles starts and others preferred.
A 20-race maiden under rules with 14 defeats coming over timber including a number of heavy defeats this term. Looks opposable again.
