Just the one win over hurdles in nine starts; recent form over hurdles and on the Flat has not been convincing; others preferred on balance of form and current rating.
Still a maiden over hurdles but is generally a consistent sort. Finished a weak second last time out. Should win a maiden soon but things look difficult for him off this current mark.
No real show last time out over hurdles and has been campaigned many over fences of late; unfancied last time out and only indication of connections feeling confident will be market support.
Successful on chasing debut in a Ballinrobe 2m7f contest when last seen in August; has some fair hurdling form and not without a chance but would not want the ground to get too soft.
Inching down the handicap but for a reason; has not shown too much on her last three starts and while has slight chance on best of her form others make more appeal at present despite step up in trip being interesting.
Appreciated step up in trip in May at Downpatrick when riddent o lead close home; more on his plate here returning from long absence bu this does not look a strong contest and is one for the shortlist.
Near impeccable record on her last for starts (all at Perth) wiining twice and finishing runner-up twice; not unduly burdened and looks the form pick; suited by heavy going and may take all the beating here.
Rewarded for some consistent efforts over hurdles when winning last time out at Killarney (2m3f, good-yielding); disappointing when stepped up to this trip last time out and difficult to fancy until he proves he stays so far.
Got off the mark for connections at the fifth time of asking over hurdles landing a 2m4f handicap at Navan in February off a 12lb lower mark. Beaten twice since but worthy of some consideration.
Off the mark at the fifth time of asking over hurdles when well backed in a handicap hurdle here (2m5f) over Christmas; not disgraced after reappearance after long break in December; could be spot on and market will be a guide.
Still to make the frame over hurdles and while has shown glimpses of ability there is little to get excited about and was pulled up last time out at Listowel in September.
Was rewarded for previous consistency when front-running tactics worked wonders when scoring last time out at Navan; more needed upped in the weights but clearly in good heart and has an excellent chance.
