Winner of this contest for the last two years, the mare is currently rated 10lb ahead of her nearest rival here. Goes well following lay-offs of over 100 days (1/2/1/1) and likely to take all the beating here.
Winner of three of his nine starts over hurdles and likely to prove the biggest danger to the favourite. Second of 10 beaten 3L behind Unowhatimeanharry in the Grade 1 Stayers hurdle at Punchestown when last seen in May.
Course winner that has also won over this trip. Fourth of five beaten 56L in a Punchestown 2m2½f on good to yielding ground last month. Others hold stronger claims.
Winner of three of 17 starts over hurdles with last win coming over 12 months ago. Well held on recent starts over the larger obstacles and on the Flat and remains easy to oppose.
Gallant mare, last seen running Tiger Roll to 2¾L finishing second of 40 in the Grand National at Aintree in April. Winner of two of her eight starts over timber. Needs others to run below-par to have a chance in this.
