911-7OR: 135

Four wins over the larger obstacles to her name including a couple of successes in May but is approached with caution given the yards runners have failed to hit the frame in seven starts in this contest in the last eight years.

1111-4OR: 132

Winner of five of his 21 starts over fences with his most recent success coming in May off a 8lb lower mark. Could be up against it for a yard with not the greatest record in this race.

811-3OR: 131CD

C&D winner of a beginner chase at this festival 12 months ago. That win remains his only success in six starts over fences. Has failed to complete in his last three races and has not been seen since December. Market likely to be best guide.

1111-2OR: 130D

Distance winner of four of his 12 starts over the larger obstacles. One of four in the race for a stable who have a disappointing return in this event since 2012.

Last RunWatch last race
1011-2OR: 130

Sending out a number of mixed messages in a number of starts since returning to action in May. Not ruled out but a number of below par efforts to shake off.

Last RunWatch last race
811-2OR: 130BFCD

C&D winner of a beginners chase at this festival two years ago on his only run over the combination. Beaten favourite when a gallant second of 12 in the Midlands national at Kilbeggan last month and one to note in first time cheekpieces.

1211-0OR: 128

Struggle off a revised mark since winning at Roscommon in June. Stable have struggled in this contest recently including Top Of The Town and Thunder And Roses failing to trouble the judge 12 months ago.

Last RunWatch last race
911-0OR: 128

Failed to build upon promising effort when third in the Killarney National with a couple of below par efforts at Ballinrobe and Kilbeggan last month. Handicap mark continues to fall but hard to be confident at present. First time blinkers fitted.

Last RunWatch last race
1111-0OR: 128D

Has failed to complete in four of his last five starts over the larger obstacles but managed a shock win at Navan in March off a 5lb lower mark. Unlikely to make a significant impact on return to the track in this contest.

Last RunWatch last race
1110-10OR: 124

Completely out of sorts in the last 12 months since a gallant third of 20 beaten 1½L behind Snugsborough Benny in this contest on yielding to soft ground. Looks a tall order.

Last RunWatch last race
910-7OR: 121D

Winner of one of his seven starts over fences and recently won his fourth hurdle at Bellewstown last month. Behind Cecil Corbett at Roscommon in June but capable of reversing that form here.

Last RunWatch last race
610-7OR: 121

Took the Galileo gelding four starts to get of the mark for connections over the larger obstacles at Clomel in June before following up with a 1½L success at Roscommon last month. Progressing rapidly from race to race and looks set for a bold bid.

Last RunWatch last race
1010-3OR: 117D

Comes here on a hat-tick of wins following a double at Limerick and Tipperary last month. Beat Holly Flight ½L off revised mark on latest start and may struggle here under another penalty.

Last RunWatch last race
1010-2OR: 116CD

Winner of two of his 23 starts over fences the Vinnie Roe gelding is a dual winner over C&D of a similar contest here in October. One of four in the race for leading owner and a market check is advised.

Last RunWatch last race
59-13OR: 113

Two from four over the larger obstacles winning his latest starts at Wexford in June and a 7L win at Perth last month. Racing 18lb higher than first win the gelding may find one or two better handicapped sorts lurking.

Last RunWatch last race
129-11OR: 111C

On a long losing run but nearly pulled off a win at odds of 50/1 in a Limerick handicap chase over 2m6f last month when headed at the last and dropping to third on the line. Not getting any younger.

Minella Beau (4/1), Tesseract (5/1), Top Of The Charts (5/1), Mac N Cheese (6/1), Mindsmadeup (6/1), Treasure Chest (8/1), Ned Stark (8/1), Mine Now (12/1), Hash Brown (12/1), Ocean Glandore (16/1), Icantsay (20/1), Aranhill Chief (20/1), Supreme Vinnie (22/1), Mill Quest (25/1), Riviera Sun (25/1), Swingbridge (25/1), Cecil Corbett (28/1), Lilshane (33/1)


Owner J P McManus is represented by four contenders here and his hat-trick seeking TREASURE CHEST can get the better of stablemate Tesseract in a competitive contest. The mount of J J Slevin can win his third chase start in two months at the expense of C&D winner Minella Beau for the Willie Mullins yard and Limerick runner-up Mindsmadeup.
