Improved on debut at Tramore when not disgraced at Roscommon last month. Entitled to improve again but hard to assess his winning chance on available evidence.
Was successful in a point-to-point at Ballingarry (3m) three starts back. Improved on hurdling bow at Kilbeggan when fourth of 12 at Cork latest. Open to some improvement and one to consider.
Outpaced in the closing stages at this this track last time out over 2m4f; had been going the right way previously and no reason why he can't be a major player against some weak rivals.
Not the most consistent and completely tailed off on latest start at Kilbeggan. Had previously shown glimpses of ability but hard to make a sensible case for him.
Well beaten on only hurdles appearance to date. Has been running with some promise on the flat recently but hard to see him playing a leading role here unless the market speaks in his favour.
Improving hurdler seeking his first win following eight starts and a good second to Oh'herewego on final start for Peter Fahy last year. Absence to overcome on stable and season debut but chances in this weak field.
Well-bred gelding and possibly a future prospect but hard to recommend based on a poor first outing over hurdles where he made mistakes, struggled in rear and was eventually pulled up.
Twice place in maiden hurdles up to 2m4f; suggested in his latest performance that is step up in trip will suit and looks one for the shortlist in a contest that won't take much winning.
