In good heart of late winning a Punchestown handicap chase last month off an 8lb lower mark. Another bold show looks likely.
Promising sort over hurdles for Nicky Henderson, but has shown very little in three starts over fences for current yard. Hard to fancy.
Distance winner that has also won at this venue. Generally well held in a number of chase starts. Likely to find better handicapped sorts lurking.
Course winner that has also won over the trip. Running well in defeat of late and is a gelding that deserves a change of luck.
Popular veteran whose last win came in a handicap hurdle here over three years ago. First-time blinkers unlikely to bring about required improvement.
Not seen for over 12-months before defeats at Tramore and Naas last month. May improve on recent fourth of 12 last time out, but looks a long shot.
Long-standing maiden has made little impact since switching to chasing and can be of very little appeal here after latest heavy defeat.
Course winner that has also won over the trip. Well held in a couple of starts over fences last month and may struggle in this contest.
