Fair wins at Thurles and Fairyhouse this year over shorter before finding Listed company a bit too hot the last twice. Drop back to novice company sure to help and has sound claims.
Winner at Galway back in October (2m2f) but has struggled for consistency since including back over hurdles last time. A return to that Galway effort would give her sounds claims all the same.
Won over 3m at Navan three starts back but has struggled since over shorter. This trip should suit and would have a squeak if returning to her best effort.
Well beaten and no impression in his last two chase starts in better company. Needs to up her game back at a more realistic level and conditions are ideal for her.
Won a novice handicap chase back in November but has struggled for form since. Has plenty to find with the principles here and set for a minor role.
Failed to finish in points and finally get round at the second time of asking under rules at Naas last time. Was beaten out of sight there and impossible to fancy.
Maiden over hurdles but shaped with minor promise on chasing debut at Cork last time. Trip should suit but has plenty to find with the principles.
