Debut AQPS bumper winner in France (2m, good) in October 2017. Not seen again until popping up for this stellar stable in a Navan maiden hurdle (2m4f, soft/heavy) in November, when 11-4 and stopped very quickly. Tries again now and is considered.
Showed promise in five points without winning any. Has stepped up on that under rules, but remains a maiden after seven more attempts. Needs improvement on what we have seen to win this, but entitled to consideration.
Pulled up on sole start in a point 11-months ago. Half-brother to a 2m4f-3m chase winner, as well as another point winner. Dam well beaten in 2m and 2m4f hurdles and bumpers. Can only watch on rules debut.
Won one of his eight points (on yld/soft). 25-1 and beaten a long way on his rules debut in a Limerick maiden hunter chase over a similar trip. Others preferred.
Has shown a good level of form in both starts, finishing just 3½L adrift of Cheltenham Festival Bumper runner-up Blue Sari on debut, and not looking flattered at that. Stepped up on that at Naas last time and should be tough to beat.
Runner-up in his sole point outing. 6-1 and ran well for a long way on debut in same race as Ashdale Bob at Naas (2m3f, soft) last time. Likely to improve for that and no surprise if he is good enough to make an impact.
0-6 under rules and has yet to finish within 15½L of the winner. Has received an official rating of 102, so will need major improvement to land a blow in this.
100-1 and a long way behind when beating just three of an 18-runner field home on debut in a Thurles maiden hurdle (2m, soft). Step up in trip could suit (dam a half-sister to a 2m5f hurdle winner), but can only watch this time.
Half-brother to two French hurdle and one chase winner, the latter over 2m5f. 33-1 and not devoid of promise on debut (behind Ashdale Bob and ahead of Bold Assassin) at Naas last month. Something to build on there and could come into this.
