Good third in a C&D maiden hurdle on good ground in October. Cheekpieces worn that day replaced with blinkers (absent here) when fifth at Clonmel (3m, good) the following month.
Beaten 16L when finishing fourth in a handicap chase over an extended 2m1f at Tipperary (good) recently. Returns to hurdles here and has won over further in the past.
Good second in a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m1f at Slgio (good) last time out. Also placed at Cork (soft) and Thurles (good) this year and is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Finished runner-up on three of his last four starts including over 2m4f at Perth (good-to-soft) last month. Notable runner stepping up slightly in distance.
Recorded a first hurdling victory when scoring by 1L over 2m6f at Downpatrick (good) last week. Interesting to see how he fares under a 4lb penalty.
Failed to figure in nine starts to date most recently at Cork (2m, good-to-yielding) on handicap debut last month. Cheekpieces tried for the first time stepping up in distance.
Maiden after five starts under Rules and beaten 36L by Manomine at Downpatrick (2m6f, good) recently. Others hold stronger claims on this occasion.
Returning from a break when finishing 5L second at Wexford (2m, yielding) in a handicap hurdle last time out. Races off a 1lb higher mark here and is worth a check in the market.
Dual C&D winner most recently on good ground in June last year.. Fair 22L eighth in a big field 2m4f handicap at Tipperary (good) on hurdling return last week and top jockey booked to ride.
Placed in a maiden point-to-point on soft ground last month. Struggled in a maiden hunter chase at Cork (3m, good-to-yielding) on stable debut subsequently and others make more appeal.
