Classy 151-rated hurdler has made a smooth transformation in to slick jumper over the larger obstacles in a couple of facile victory's at Down Royal and Punchestown last month. Toughest task yet but capable of delivering the right answer.
Winner on latest point-to-point start in December but has shown little in the way of ability in a couple of starts over fences so far. Looks a tall order in this heat.
Modest 104-rated hurdler, yet to taste success in 13 starts. Possibly best avoided on chasing debut, unless any market moves suggest otherwise.
2016 Triumph Hurdle winner bounced back to form when landing a Fairyhouse handicap hurdle last month. Chasing introduction didn't go to plan when struggling behind Wicklow Brave at Ballinrobe recently. Needs to improve significantly.
Creditable 127-rated hurdler who is yet to make his mark over the larger obstacles in four starts. Has appeared to struggle outside of beginners company and losing run set to continue here.
Solid 137-rated hurdler who has bumped in to Farclas and Wicklow Brave on his first couple of starts over fences. Has shown little aptitude in recent starts to be considered in this company.
Never graduated on the Flat for messrs Tabor/Smith/Magnier in three starts for trainer Aidan O'Brien. Has failed to follow up on a promising victory in a Gowran Park novice hurdle in November, being well beaten over both hurdles and fences.
Daughter of Yeats out of a Bob Back mare. Dam unraced. Nothing of note as yet including a heavy defeat on hurdling debut at Limerick last month. Can improve on this first run over fences in time.
