Won a bumper at Navan first time under rules but seems to have been regressive over hurdles of late. Folded tamely at Down Royal last time and doesn't look one to trust at present.
Beaten in all four starts in bumpers including a heavy defeat (sent off 5/2) at Limerick last time. Hurdles debut today and needs to take a large step forward. Powerful connections sure to find the key to him at some point.
Beaten a total of 170 lengths in two starts over hurdles so far and impossible to fancy on that evidence. Best watched.
Has posted a couple of fair efforts over hurdles so far but found the drip in trip against him at Down Royal last time. This trip looks sure to suit and brings the best form to the table so should be bang there.
Beaten a long way on both starts over hurdles so far. Interesting jockey booking and sure to show some improvement at some stage although in may be in handicaps after this.
Gelding by Milan out of a Danehill Dancer mare. Cost €38,000 as a three-year-old. Slowly improving with each start over hurdles but needs to find extra to be involved in the finish here.
Well held in all three starts over hurdles so far. Cheekpieces go on but needs to find plenty of improvement to be involved.
Well held in all four starts in bumpers. Needs to show plenty more on first start over hurdles but early days and could be improvement to come for jumping.
