Winning point-to-pointer made a perfect start to his life under rules when a most impressive winner at Fairyhouse last month in a 22-runner maiden. Entered for all three novice races at Cheltenham and big player for last year's winning connections.
Three-time bumper winner in 2015 returned from mammoth 949 day absence to win with plenty in hand at Tipperary in his first hurdle race. Supreme Novices entry for top connections could yet become a top class hurdler.
Ran well in tow of his four hurdle races winning once but struggled in the two at Grade Three level. This little easier so expect him to find things tough once again.
Point winner built on promising fourth at Gowran when winning a Down Royal made by 13L in which she was value for more. Live contender on that evidence and mares allowance helpful.
Thurles winner since been third of six in a Grade One and third of seven in a Grade Three. Others more open to improvement but has the form to make her presence felt once again.
Well bred youngster beaten a short-head on debut in a Naas bumper last month. Smart prospect based on that but will have to be exceptional to win this on his first hurdle start.
French hurdles scorer started out with a respectable fourth in a Leopardstown Grade Three before finishing third in a lesser race at Fairyhouse. More needed overall but still young and receives all of the allowances.
