Took 11 runs to open his account in point-to-points and that was gained on slower ground than expected here. Others carry greater appeal.
Unraced Dansant gelding out of a staying hurdler. May find this too sharp and trainer has a career record of 0-121 in bumpers.
33/1 when tailed off in above-average Sligo bumper on debut. This hardly any easier and he still has a long way to go.
King's Theatre half-brother to smart chaser Barker. Supported on debut for a stayers bumper when patiently ridden and conceding too much ground to the smart looking winner. This looks easier if he has the pace to compete over shorter.
Canford Cliffs half-brother to three winners, including unbeaten bumper performer Happy Hollow. Shaped much better here 18 days ago but still has a fair bit to find with Global Society on that form.
Gelding by Shirocco out of a Listed hurdle winner. Half-brother to two winners and was well-supported on debut when narrowly failing to concede a stone to the eventual victor. High on the list here.
Flat-bred gelding improved from his debut last time but still finished behind Centaur and Global Society. No reason to suspect he may have improved more than those rivals in the past 18 days.
Approve gelding out of a winning miler whose first six foals have failed to win. Looks up against it on debut in this field.
Won a point-to-point in March but was 16/1 when behind a few of these at Down Royal 18 days ago. Looked in need of a stiffer test that day.
High Chapparal filly finished a creditable fourth behind more experienced rivals on Punchestown debut. Looks the one to beat on judged on that effort and trainer has a career record of 16-50 in bumpers here.
