Generally consistent over hurdles though put in one of his weaker performances last time out when failing to follow up a promising effort the time before (both at Galway). Chance on best of form but need to put poor run behind him.
Failed to follow up on a novice hurdle win at Cork in May when well beaten in two subsequent handicaps. More needed but holds strong place claims.
One from ten over hurdles, the gelding's sole win coming in a Roscommon 2m maiden hurdle three years ago. Third of seven at Sligo this month was his best recent effort for sometime but needs to back that up once again.
Fairly consistent chaser but has not got competitive in a hurdles race in the start of 2017; possible he could translate chase for to hurdles but it takes a small leap of faith.
Only two career wins over hurdles have come at this track including when staying on well to win over this trip last time out. More on his plate up in the handicap but going the right way and no reason he can't be in the shake-up.
Ran well when finishing 3L third in a competitive handicap hurdle over 3m at Leopardstown (soft) early last month. Running off a similar mark here and definitely one to consider.
Has mainly been campaigned over fences in the past few months and has struggled since winning at Down Royal in May. Return to hurdles may freshen him up and not without a chance on his best form.
Won a two-mile chase at Perth in July but his hurdles form over the past year has not been inspiring; may need to drop a few pounds in the handicap to get seriously competitive.
Wonderfully consistent mare who runs off the same mark when finishing a good third at Downpatrick recently; certainly has a good chance in a race with no real well handicapped rivals.
