Not outclassed in Grade 2 event at Cheltenham (blundered 2 out) earlier this month and seems reasonably well weighted in this contest; one to consider.
Front runner; has gone well fresh in the past and won over course and distance on his latest hurdles appearance; obviously racing from career high mark but may well have progressed over the summer and has a leading chance.
Well regarded ex-French bumper winner; has been steady away in all her hurdling appearances; this looks tough on her handicap debut but certainly respected from leading yard.
Has been a steady if unspectacular improver over hurdles over the Autumn; needs to improve again to get competitive on his handicap debut but one to consider.
Produced best effort last time out at Navan following on from some uninspiring efforts previously; hard to envisage him winning but should run his race,
Won a novices' hurdle here (2m, yielding) last year, but well beaten in all four starts since, and despite another 2lb drop, he has a bit to prove now.
Won over this trip at Cork in August but two subsequent runs have been below par; needs to bounce back but has ability and hard to easily write off.
One from 19 over hurdles but not disgraced in a number of starts since July; looks a little vulnerable off her current mark.
Has been fairly consistent over hurdles without threatening to win; should run his race but chance may well depend on how well his better fancied rivals run.
