Promise of his displays as a seven-year-old appears to have levelled out in a number of starts since January. Yard who won the 2015 renewal with Bless The Wings run four in this contest.

Failed to complete his last three starts at the Cheltenham festival and in a couple of Grand Nationals in the spring. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Winner of three of his 24 starts over the larger obstacles but the gelding is now without a win in eight runs. Capable of a bold bid if in the mood and part of a strong Elliott team.

Won for the third time over fences when landing a Cork handicap over 3m4f on soft ground last month in a 16-runner contest by over 7L. Life more difficult off a 9lb higher mark but another bold show likely.

Lightly-raced gelding who has clearly had his training problems. Finished sixth of 11 beaten 25L behind Presenting Percy in a Grade 2 contest in January before finishing ninth of 10 in a Grade 1 hurdle when last seen in May. Other more convincing.

Won a Wexford hurdle in March, subsequently well held over timber at Punchestown and more recently over 3m at Clonmel. One from 13 over fences, possibly best watched on chasing return.

Very lightly raced since winning a 2015 beginners chase and off again since unseating early at Naas in March. Fourth of 11, well held when never a factor at Punchestown last month and may have to settle for minor honours.

Won a 3m Naas beginners' chase in January but failed to complete three times on the spin in May. Not fluent on return to action last month in a Down Royal 3m handicap chase on soft ground, but is better than that effort suggests.

Has been knocking on the door in some decent chase contests prior to running a blinder in a valuable handicap hurdle at Galway in early August. Fourth of 10, beaten over 13L on return over the larger obstacles in September and better expected here.

2017 Welsh National winning veteran. Pulled up when last seen in the Midlands National at Uttoxeter in March. Appears to have a mountain to climb.

Needs to step up on a dismal effort on return to action in a Naas 2m4f handicap hurdle in October beaten over 100L. One from 11 over fences and best watched in the market returning over the larger obstacles.

Well backed when winning a handicap chase at Downpatrick in September before a dismal display in a Punchestown contest over 2m6½f off a 13lb higher mark. Faces a tough task stepping up in trip.

Appears to be consistently flattered by his finishing positions in a number of starts over fences since August. Could be vulnerable to a couple of better handicapped sorts.

Only made his racecourse debut in December last year. Solid and tough sort in a couple of point-to-point starts and in hunter chase company. More likely than some to run his race.

Finished second of 12 beaten 17L in a Tipperary 2m4f handicap chase in October on yielding ground before another runner up position in a 16-runner 3m4f contest at Cork next time. More needed in this company.

Betting

Forecast

Ask Susan (5/1), Wrong Direction (6/1), Glorious Galway (8/1), Aherlow (8/1), Killer Miller (10/1), Prince Of Scars (10/1), The Gatechecker (10/1), Out Sam (11/1), Ah Littleluck (12/1), General Principle (12/1), Mon Lino (16/1), Fine Theatre (16/1), Global Racing (20/1), Monbeg Notorious (25/1), Raz De Maree (25/1)

Verdict

The solid and consistent ASK SUSAN for the Willie Mullins yard can land a third career win over the larger obstacles. The daughter of Ask takes a step up in trip here but can hold off any potential dangers in the shape of the interesting Seamus Spillane-trained Wrong Direction and The Gatechecker who won well over 3m4f at Cork earlier this month. The lightly raced, Killer Miller and course winner, Ah Littleluck appear capable of hitting the frame.
