Still a maiden after eight races. Fell on his second chase start at Tramore (2m6f). Jumped better last time though when seventh of 13 at Clonmel (2m). Considerable step up in trip so has to prove his stamina.
Was successful over fences at Clonmel (2m6f) three starts back but has been unable to follow it up since then. Was seventh of 14 last time at Wexford (3m1f). This is his first start since then. One to watch on return to action.
Was successful over fences at Downpatrick (2m1f) in June 2018 but has not been able to add to that since then. Was fifth of 18 last time at Tipperary (2m3½f). Down 1lb and up in trip. Is capable of hitting the frame.
Broke his maiden over fences back in December at Thurles (3m½f). His form since then has been poor. He was fourth of 11 on his latest start at Tipperary (2m7f). Now 3lb lower than last winning mark.
Veteran who scored at this track two starts back over 3m1f. Was second of eight last time at Southwell (3m), but 20L behind the winner. Has been eased 5lb by the handicapper. Each-way claims on return to this track.
Still looking for his maiden success after 12 runs. Was second of 13 last time at Uttoxeter over 3m when going off at 7/1. Is down 5lb in the weights which gives him a good chance here. One for the shortlist.
Experienced chaser who has just the one win from his 26 starts. That sole success came back in October 2014 at Thurles (2m4f). Ran well last time when third of 18 at Tipperary (2m3½f). Remains off the same mark and up in trip. One to consider.
Point-to-point winner but has shown very little under Rules so far. Was seventh of 12 on her chase debut last time at Tipperary (2m3½f) after going off at 66/1. Cheekpieces on for first time. Does need to be improve a lot to be in the mix here.
Veteran who has two wins from 38 runs over fences. His last success was at Clonmel over 2m3f in March 2018. Needs to bounce back after being pulled-up at Kilbeggan (3m1f) last time out. Others preferred.
Still a maiden under Rules but came really close to opening success last time at Tipperary (2m3½f) when second of 18. Gone up 3lb for that run but this step up in trip should help as she won over 3m in a point-to-point. Leading contender.
