High class over hurdles and fences for Mouse Morris but been off since 2016 and would take a brave backer after 1042 days off; market perhaps will guide.
In and out sort who has hit the frame on a couple of occasions in ultimately a very inconsistent run this year. Others more reliable.
Has gone a long while without a win (19 starts) but capable over this sort of trip and not disgraced in recents start over shorter. Handicapper isn't exactly being lenient just yet but has each-way claims.
Took his chase record to 2-2 when getting on top late at Tramore over 2m5½f latest. 11lb rise obviously asks further questions but strongly suspect he will prove up to it.
Two wins and five incompletions until finishing 10th of 14 at Listowel latest. Veteran comes with plenty of risks attached.
Winner of three of her 16 starts over fences hitting the frame on a further three occasions. Bounced back from a fall last time when seventh at Listowel but others on the face of it have stronger claims.
Up 8lb today after winning a valuable Listowel contest latest which was his first success over fences. Surely more to come now and has leading claims as the most fancied of his trainer's trio.
Consistent without exactly looking well handicapped earlier this year but was last on return at Listowel and even though he can come on for that the effort suggests others better options.
Veteran not won since 2016 and not made the frame in four starts in 2019; makes little appeal.
1lb lower than when winning a lesser event at Wexford in the summer and although he has only placed once since he can't be ruled out here.
3-52 record and not won a race since July 2016. Placed three times earlier this season but not made the frame in most recent trio so confidence dwindling now.
Losing run at 15 since Tramore success last season and not made the frame in 2019 so that streak expected to extend here.
