Solid and consistent sort but has managed to bump in to a couple of better handicapped sorts in recent races. Similar story on the cards here.
In fine form in the summer of 2017 running up a number of successes on the Flat and over hurdles. Possibly best watched on return to action.
Not fluent and made mistakes when pulled up in a Navan novice chase in December 2017 before failing to finish once again at Kilbeggan when last seen in June.
Useful 125-rated chaser who has recently dropped back to jumping hurdles. Disappointing last time out and first-time cheekpieces needed to work the oracle here.
Son of Galileo, didn't really match expectations in three 2017 Flat runs for Ballydoyle. Possibly ground against him last time out at Limerick following good win at Gowran Park. Market likely to be best guide.
Chasing recently, reverts back to hurdles for inform yard. One from five over timber and likely to be in the mix in this contest.
Handicap hurdle winner over 3m3f on good ground at Sedgefield in September for trainer Gordon Elliott. Best watched on first start for new connections.
Gallant and popular veteran whose last win came over 12-months ago. Beaten a short-head in a Fairyhouse handicap hurdle earlier this month and holds strong place claims here.
Winner of two of his three hurdle starts since September including off an 8lb lower mark at Leopardstown last month. Leading player.
Promising runs in defeat when hitting the frame on each of his four hurdle starts before finally getting off the mark at the fifth attempt in a Limerick maiden hurdle last month. Another bold show looks likely.
Last Year's Winner
Try Again (5/2), Eclair De Beaufeu (10/3), Or Jaune De Somoza (4/1), Inca Gold (7/1), Stooshie (10/1), Oscars Den (11/1), Capital Force (20/1), Exactoris (25/1), Andratx (40/1), King's Song (66/1)
