Winner of two of his six races over this trip but hasn't run over the distance for over two years. Out of form in three starts since November and overall record casts doubt on his ability to get competitive.
Has developed in to a promising sort since completing a Fairyhouse double in January landing beginners and handicap contest in good style. Another bold show likely despite a 7lb higher mark.
Winner of a Gowran Park novice handicap chase last month over a similar trip off a 7lb lower mark, beating five rivals 3L. Beaten stepping up in trip earlier this month but likely more to come for connections back over this distance.
Solid and consistent sort when running well in defeat in a number of beginners contests in the summer and on return to action earlier this month behind Snugsborough Hall. Reliable type who should go well again.
Hit the frame over C&D in a maiden hurdle here over three years ago and landed a Tramore novice chase over the trip in January. Beaten since but can go well with conditions to suit for inform yard.
Gallant C&D winner but has looked a shadow of his former self in a series of poor efforts since December. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Fresh from a number of point-to-point starts. Course winner that has also won over this trip. 11 race maiden over the larger obstacles and it's looking a little late in the day now to be getting off the mark.
