Left his moderate bumper performance and a fall on hurdles bow well behind when finally showing his true worth with a solid second of 18 at Down Royal back in March. Entitled to come on for the run yet ought to go well nevertheless.
Second at Ballinrobe latest a solid effort albeit beaten 24L by the very comfortable winner. Rating of 99 probably quite accurate so likely find one or two too good here.
Rules newcomer well beaten in a point-to-point back in April so looks very unlikely to be a leading player here.
Beaten just three rivals in his two starts to date at Tipperary and Bellewstown so easily opposed until gaining a handicap mark.
Limerick fourth on hurdles bow in December a really solid effort so his subsequent remote midfield effort there in March went down as a disappointment. Ground was bottomless that day so hopeful and expectant of better now after a break.
Big prices and beaten a long way on all starts so far under rules. Impossible to fancy on that evidence and best watched for now.
Five-race maiden, generally well held on each occasion so far. Overall record casts doubt on ability to get competitive in this contest.
Ballinrobe bumper winner found just one too good when second of 18 at Cork in July on hurdles bow over 2m. Longer trip unlikely to cause issues so looks the one to beat here.
Promise in first of two point-to-points but well held subsequently and probably best watched on rules bow.
116-rated performer placed in 12 of his 18 hurdle starts to date including third here as recently as Wednesday. Probably find one or two too good again but hard to keep him out of the frame.
Placed once in five hurdle starts but well held more recently including on chase bow when last seen in March. Makes limited appeal here.
Rules debutant won both point-to-points and is interesting here for his small stable whose most recent runner won at Clonmel last week. Market can guide here.
Galway bumper winner in August 208 entitled to have needed the run when last of four in similar contest at Punchestown in May. Had another break since but remains one with plenty of potential and he is bred to be better over obstacles now.
Daughter of Oscar weakened into 12th of 14 at Wexford on debut in the summer and looks more a long-term prospect based on that.
