Getaway gelding winner of two of his five bumper starts, generally well held on both maiden hurdle starts since November but expected to improve in this company.
By Kayf Tara cost €65,000 as a three-year-old and is a half-brother to a 3m point-to-point and 3m1f hurdles winner. Ninth of 18 beaten 49L on debut at Punchestown last month and unlikely to play a part in the finish.
Well beaten on each of his four hurdle starts to date. Others look to be progressing at a quicker rate so needs to up his game here.
Related to winner over both hurdles and fences, as well as in bumpers. Well beaten and no impression on debut finishing 93L adrift of the winner at Down Royal on St Stephens day.
Modest sort in point-to-points and not seen for over 18 months when finishing tailed off in a maiden hurdle here last month. Looks vulnerable in this company.
Gelding by Mustameet out of a Lavirco mare. Tailed of beaten 143L on debut in a maiden hurdle here earlier this month. Hard to fancy.
Shantou gelding, cost €50,000 in 2013 and €100,000 in 2016. Third of 19 beaten 1L on maiden hurdle debut in November and expected to put behind him a below par effort at Leopardstown last month.
Beaten 34L when last seen in a Punchestown maiden hurdle over 2m4f in February. Not easy to discount.
Consistent in point-to-points but disappointed on return to hurdling last month at Down Royal when finishing 50L adrift of the winner, Sinoria. Others look open to more improvement.
Second of six on last appearance in a point-to-point in May. Best watched on hurdling debut and others make more appeal.
Returned after an 1120 days break to win an Oldcastle point-to-point before finishing runner-up on next start. Beaten 69L on hurdling debut at Cork earlier this month and no signs of any light at the end of the tunnel just yet.
Nothing of note in three gloomy maiden hurdle efforts since May last year. Looks opposable in this contest.
Modest 74-rated Flat handicapper for Brian Ellison and requires a chunk of overall improvement to play a role here on hurdling debut.
Arakan gelding is a half-brother to two winners over obstacles from 2m-3m1f. Beaten 45L on hurdling debut at Leopardstown and needs to improve significantly.
