Last seen finishing 14th of 25 beaten 12L in the Coral Cup at the festival when never a threat after being outpaced two out. Can reclaim form here over a distance the six-year-old has won at. Big player.
Dual hurdles winner at up to 2m7f for Philip Hobbs. Finished 8L adrift of Scarpeta in a Clonmel hurdle in December and has been beaten since at Leopardstown over a similar trip. Plenty to prove but not easily discountable.
Popular veteran who has also won over C&D but has appeared to be regressing for the last 12 months. Plenty more needed in this group.
King's Theatre gelding who landed a Listed contest at Wexford in October over 2m7f on yielding ground. Beaten since but a leading player here with significant jockey booking noted.
Fell in a Down Royal Grade 1 over fences in November before disappointing on return to action in a Naas 2m3f handicap hurdle earlier this month finishing down the field beaten 42L. Back up in trip here but more negatives than positives for the 10yo.
Veteran who is a winner of 7 races from 43 career starts. Still mixing it when hitting the frame on a couple of occasions this time last year and not discounted easily here.
Easily brushed aside by the impressive winner when second at Punchestown in October before another couple of disappointing efforts before the turn of the year. Plenty to prove at present.
Finished seventh of eight beaten 22L when last seen in November as a beaten favourite at Clonmel over 3m. Plenty more needed in this group.
