Reasonably consistent on the Flat though last few runs were below par; interesting recruit to jumping and entitled to run well; market may be best guide.
Very consistent maiden hurdler but starting to become expensive to follow; likely to run his race once again but may be vulnerable to less exposed types.
No wins from seven starts but certainly has ability exemplified by finishing third in a novice hurdle race at Punchestown recently; a reproduction of that form in this weaker contest should see him go very close.
Won a maiden for Aiden O'Brien back in 2017 and returns for the first time here; very difficult to assess after such a long absence and one his hurdling debut suggesting a look in the market is the recommendation.
Another dropping back from handicaps and there was plenty to like about the gelding's performance last time out at Punchestown; if he can reproduce that form he may take all the beating.
Fairly consistent Flat performer who was not disgraced on hurdles debut at Navan last March; will certainly win races this season but may have to wait a while before opening his account.
Didn't show a great deal in a novice hurdle and a similar story in two subsequent bumpers; ran well for a long way on reappearance run at Clonmel in October; entitled to improve and respected from top yard.
Cheaply bought gelding who showed very little on only racecourse appearance in a hurdle race at Galway in October; obviously open to improvement but it would be a surprise if good enough here.
A return to hurdling last time out at Cork after a spell chasing failed to reignited this gelding; hard to see where the improvement will come from to be a serious contender.
Nicely bred son of Dylan Thomas, didn't show enough in two bumpers in October to merit selection now.
Cost 7,000 euros as a foal; related to some fair National Hunt performers; looks the type who will be better in time and only strong market support would suggest he is capable of landing this.
Unspectacular breeding evidenced when this filly finished last on her only racecourse appearance at Clonmel earlier this month; another who will do better with age.
Daughter of Thousand Words out of a Norwich mare. Appears to have a mountain to climb coming here for her hurdling debut based on what she has shown in three career bumper starts so far.
Reserve 1 Signs of ability in bumpers but needs to bounce back from a fall last time out at Fairyhouse.
