Built on promise of first two chases to beat Stowaway Forever in a driving finish latest at Fairyhouse. Not sure he will be able to beat that rival again though with his penalty but a useful recruit to the game.
Won 2018 Triumph Hurdle but struggled last season in Open company. Still a very young horse however and perhaps his future will be over fences after impressing on chase bow at Down Royal latest despite a couple of errors; big chance.
Unplaced over hurdles and 92 rating gives him a mountain to climb here even if he jumps well first time over fences.
Solid 123-rated handicap hurdler, winner of three of his 15 starts over timber. Not seen since December and probably best watched on chasing debut unless market suggests otherwise.
24-race maiden but placed eight times over fences and narrowly beaten by Or Jaune De Somoza before falling latest. Certainly capable of a bold bid and sooner or later one will go in off the crossbar.
