Running well in defeat in tow of his last three starts over hurdles and can be forgiven a first obstacle fall at Clonmel last month. Positives outweigh the negatives in this contest and the daughter of Kalanisi should be a major player.
By no means disgraced in a number of runs over hurdles since February, however remains a five-race maiden coming in to this contest. Can go well but may find one or two better suited to today's conditions.
Will have disappointed connections in a couple of below-par starts when last seen in January. Improved performance would not surprise for yard with a terrific 49% win and place strike rate at this meeting in the last four years.
Improved on previous efforts when finishing third of 12 beaten 6¾L in a Clonmel handicap hurdle earlier this month. Likable type who holds place claims.
Modest 48-rated handicapper on the Flat and has been a little overwhelmed in three initial hurdling efforts since making his debut last month. Has shown limited signs of ability and cannot be considered in this contest.
Four-race maiden who has been sent off at 100/1 on each of his starts, running accordingly on each occasion. Unlikely to be playing a part in the finish here.
Solid and consistent eight-race maiden who has been running well in defeat in a number of starts since the turn of the year. Repeat of those efforts can see the So You Think filly battling for prize money.
