Last year's Irish Gold Cup winner. Significantly below that level of form since, and should find a couple too good on recent evidence.
Grade 1 winner and consistent performer at the top level, also having been runner-up in last year's RSA Chase. Drop back in trip not a concern and he looks the one to beat.
Fourth in last year's Grand National, and third in the Gold Cup (career-best). Not sure he really wants this drop in trip and will need plenty of use making of him, but a classy sort nonetheless.
Grade 1 winner over hurdles and looked like repeating that over fences when a last-fence faller in last year's Irish Gold Cup. Arrives after a good hurdles prep run here behind Presenting Percy last month, and should go well.
