Improving chaser this term, winning over 2m4f at Navan before close second at Cork on soft-going. Ridden and no extra two out when beaten 48L in a novice handicap last month but should be better suited to today's conditions stepping up in trip.
Dual distance winner over hurdles and in the point-to-point ranks for previous yard. Possible place claims on stable debut.
127-rated handicap hurdler without a win in seven starts over the larger obstacles. Ran well at the Dublin festival over hurdles recently and races off 15lb lower mark reverting to fences. Open to plenty of improvement.
Six-time winner for Gordon Elliott yet to fire in three starts for current yard this season. Ran a gallant fourth of 16 over the banks of Punchestown earlier this month and is capable of a big run if in the mood.
Winner of a Limerick hunter chase over two years ago but has fallen and suffered two defeats over 85L in a number of chase starts since. Looks a tall order in this company.
Was third in five-runner beginners' chase here on New Year's Day over 2m5f. Well held in three starts since, failing to finish in a couple of them. May find this a tough assignment.
Now 12-years-old and is without a win in 10 starts over fences, best of this season's efforts did come over similar trip here in November. Pulled up on stable debut latest and may struggle on these terms.
