Followed up a maiden hurdle success with a good 13L fourth in a 2m4f Grade 3 at Thurles (good) last month. Interesting to see how he fares with a tongue tie tried for the first time.
Broke his maiden at the first attempt over hurdles when taking a 2m contest on yielding ground here last month. Subsequently third in a Grade 2 event and represents a top yard stepping up in distance.
Soft ground maiden hurdle winner in the autumn and some good efforts in defeat since. Beaten a neck at Thurles (2m4f, good) last time out and trying this trip for the first time.
Point-to-point winner has run well on all three starts in maiden hurdles. Beaten 3L when fourth at Naas (2m3f, yielding) earlier this month and this looks a tougher contest.
Built on some promising efforts when winning a maiden hurdle on yielding-to-soft ground over 2m here by 6L earlier this month. Worth a check in the market upped in trip.

Caravation (2/1), Milan Native (2/1), Petit Tartare (4/1), Hotel Du Nord (11/2), Chavi Artist (13/2), Dream Conti (8/1)
