Gelding by Camacho out of a Eurobus mare. Half-brother to five winners including 2m4f hurdle winner Gusda. Promising run on debut at Killarney needs to be backed up here in first-time hood.
Failed to complete in a number of point-to-point starts before a series of dismal efforts over hurdles last month. Not in the form required to play a part.
Montmartre gelding out of a Kahyasi mare. Brother to French 2m2f hurdle winner Zahra Des Pictons. Plenty to take out of his sixth of 11 on hurdling debut at Wexford in March and will look to improve here.
Gelding by Windsor Knot out of a Cyborg mare. Dam unraced. Pulled up on sole point-to-point start last month. Best left alone with Co. Down without a winner under rules.
A Tiger Groom gelding. He's a half-brother to a winning point-to-pointer out of a dam that is from the same family as Gold Cup winner Imperial Call. Beaten 34L on debut at Tramore last month but can go better on second start.
Runner-up on the Flat in France before catching the eye in a Tipperary maiden in April. Disappointed as favourite when finishing well adrift of Arctic Fire at Killarney last month. Best watched on hurdling debut.
Found wanting on the Flat, a 62-rated handicapper. Shaped well on second start over hurdles finishing second of 15 beaten by the shortest of margins at Tramore last month. Capable of a big run.
Generally well held in a number of hurdle starts to date despite flattering finishing positions. Liable to find a couple stronger.
Gelding by Getaway out of a Medaaly mare. Dam unraced. Weakened between the second last and final flight on hurdling debut at Wexford last week. More needed.
Nothing of note in a couple of bumper starts before two dismal efforts over hurdles last month. Will need to improve on overall form to play a significant role in this contest.
Below-par 51-rated handicapper on the Flat. Well held on both starts over hurdles to date and unlikely to be involved at the business end of proceedings.
Nothing of note, generally well held in two career starts on the Flat for GB trainer William Fitzpatrick. Towards the rear on maiden hurdle and stable debut last month on first start for 12 months at Kilbeggan. Looks opposable.
Filly by Court Cave out of an Aahsaylad mare. Tailed off on debut at Sligo, finishing last of 12, before a 28L reversal at Tramore last month. Unlikely player on current evidence.
Returns from a fruitless spell on the Flat for her second hurdle start following a 68L defeat on debut at Gowran Park in November. Hard to fancy on overall evidence and others hold sturdier claims in this event.
Filly by Kalanisi out of an Old Vic mare. Has been left toiling in a couple of initial hurdle spins to date including a heavy defeat at Wexford earlier this month. Has work to do based on current form.
Shirocco filly who failed to complete in any of her three career point-to-point starts since March before finishing down the field on debut in a Ballinrobe bumper last month. First-time visor unlikely to trigger improvement.
First Reserve: Well held when falling two out on latest start at Tramore last month following on from a timid hurdling debut at Killarney. Plenty to find on recent offerings.
