Triple Flat and four-time hurdle winner who was last seen getting her nose in front in a mares; handicap hurdle at Ballinrobe last spring. Form tailed off later in the summer, and not yet back to her best this season. Could do better at this level.
Debut Flat winner for Ger Lyons in 2018, but despite running numerous good races since, he has proved a little frustrating for supporters with five placed efforts but no further success. Should be thereabouts if back to his best.
Sole hurdles win came on his stable debut for Nicky Henderson last February at Huntingdon (2m, good to soft; first-time tongue-tie). Was fairly useful for that trainer. Changed hands since last seen in May. Market check on stable debut.
Scored both on turf and AW in the other code (stays 2m), but although the more recent of his two hurdles starts was a step up on his first, his level of form suggests he needs plenty of improvement in this field.
Dual hurdle winner in 2014 and hasn't won in either code since 2015. New headgear fitted, and handles heavy, but looks to have a very difficult task on his hands on these terms.
Rattled up a hat-trick at around 2m on slow ground in the autumn and was not far off making it a four-timer. Has excuses (badly hampered and lost shoe) in big field contest at Leopardstown latest, but a big player if bouncing back.
