Popular veteran running well over the summer including a win at this venue in June. Likely to find a couple of better handicapped sorts lurking.
Hurdle winner, still looking for a breakthrough success in nine starts over the larger obstacles. First time blinkers doubtful to bring about the required amount of progress needed to play a role here.
Experienced chaser who has recorded two wins over fences so far in his career. Still in touch on latest start at Galway earlier this month when falling two out and not one to be writing off just yet.
Useful 111-rated handicap hurdler not seen over the larger obstacles since finishing last of six in a Down Royal novice chase in March, the second of his two starts over fences. More needed but one to check in the market.
Seen over hurdles more recently but was off the mark over fences prior to those runs when landing a handicap at this track over 2m3½f last month beating I'm A Izz Wizz a head. Penalty for that win may not be enough to stop another bold show.
19-race maiden, more recently seen struggling over hurdles at Tramore and Wexford. Without a win in five starts over fences and unlikely to be troubling the judge in this contest.
Yet to hit the frame in nine starts over the larger obstacles. Makes little appeal based on what the Westerner gelding has shown for connections since the turn of the year.
Will have disappointed connections in a number of dismal efforts over fences since November. Hard to fancy and plenty to prove.
Winner of four of his 34 chase starts but has been bereft of any form in five starts since winning at Tramore in May off a similar mark. Form doesn't warrant support here.
