Winner of one of his 12 starts over timber and the Yeats gelding has not looked like adding to the total in a couple of dismal efforts since September. Plenty to prove at present.
Gallant and popular veteran who won a Naas handicap hurdle last month off a 6lb lower mark. May be high enough in the weights right now but holds place claims.
Nothing of note in a couple of starts this term. Will need to raise overall profile to play a role here.
Has shown relatively little in a couple of starts since returning to action in June. Needs to show significant improvement in this company.
Winner over a shorter trip in September off a 5lb lower mark. Well held at Punchestown since and market likely to be the best guide here.
11-race maiden over timber, twice making the frame. Nothing of note in a number of starts since December and plenty more needed in this group.
Running well in defeat when not disgraced in a couple of starts in the summer but has been struggling subsequently and is likely to find it tough going once again here.
Poor form in a number of hurdle starts since October and requires a chunk of improvement to play a part here.
Completely tailed off on his last couple of starts over hurdles at Navan and Leopardstown last month. Liable to find a couple stronger.
Six of 17 beaten 20L on handicap hurdle debut at Down Royal on St Stephens day. Unlikely to play a part in the finish here.
Will have disappointed connections in a series of dismal displays over hurdles since August. Below-par form looks set to continue here.
Unplaced and well held in nine-race hurdling career to date. Overall record casts doubt on his ability to get competitive in this company.
Eight-race maiden over hurdles and first time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Well held and no impression in three maiden hurdle starts since returning to action in July. Needs to improve on even his best form to play a role here.
Beaten over 25L on each of her three career starts over hurdles to date. Hard to fancy.
