Last seen winning the Grade 1 Grand National hurdle stakes at Far Hill in the USA in October. Finished second of seven on his most recent start over fences in the Grade 2 Champion Chase at Gowran Park. Class in abundance and the one to beat.
Strong staying mare successful at up to 3m4f. Pulled up in the Welsh National before finishing second of seven beaten 14L behind Pravalaguna - ninth of 10 in the JLT - and has plenty to prove.
Triple Group One winning chaser in 2014-15 but after missing 664 days he has failed to fire in two races this term, pulling up in each of them. Capable of bouncing back if in the mood.
Winner of this contest 12 months ago beating three rivals 9½L. Only two runs on the board since including when well beaten 44L in the Grade 2 Galmoy hurdle won by Presenting Percy in January. Won't go down without a fight.
Having his 86th start under rules here and is without success in four runs over the larger obstacles. Overall record casts doubt on his ability to get competitive in this contest.
