Multiple hurdles winner and fair form on first two starts over fences last year. Well beaten at Naas (2m3f, yielding) in December however and interesting to see how he fares on return from a break.
Decent effort when finishing 24L fourth over an extended 2m5f in a valuable handicap at Leopardstown (good-to-yielding) earlier this month. One to note back to a more suitable distance.
Couple of decent efforts in handicap hurdles at Naas so far this year including when beaten 6¼L on good ground last month. Probably best watched on chase debut however.
Returning from a break when falling in a 2m beginners event at Naas (yielding-to-soft) recently. Others hold stronger claims on this occasion.
Placed third in a beginners chase at Punchestown (2m4f, good) in November and ran well when sixth in the Thyestes subsequently. Placed off a mark of 143 in the past and looks likely to play a leading role in this event.
Placed off a mark of 96 on handicap debut over hurdles at Fairyhouse (2m4f, soft) in February last year. Struggled on recent chase debut and others hold stronger claims.
Relatively early casualty when falling on chase debut at Naas (2m, yielding-to-soft) last week. Probably best watched in this event.
Winner off a mark of 118 at Wetherby (good) in January and respectable efforts in two subsequent starts. Worth a check in the market on debut over fences.
Finished a well held fourth on both chase starts so far including over an extended 2m1f at Fairyhouse (good-to-yielding) last time out. Others make more appeal.
Beaten 45L when finishing fourth in a 2m beginners chase at Naas (yielding-to-soft) on debut over fences recently. Probably best watched at present.
