T: Gordon Elliott

Grade 1 novice hurdle winner in 2019 and he landed a Grade 2 novice chase in November 2020; showed some spark as recently as autumn last year but three lesser runs followed and he arrives with something to prove.

T: Gordon Elliott

Grade 1 winner as a novice hurdler and won a Grade 2 novice over fences last term; jumping let him down over the larger obstacles and he didn't have a cut at his hurdles when dropping back to this discipline in the Grade 1 Matheson Hurdle at Leopardstown over Christmas; failed to show any spark when well-beaten in first-time cheekpieces behind Darasso latest.

T: Gordon Elliott

Grade 1 winner as a novice hurdler and won a Grade 2 novice over fences last term; didn't seem to relish a return to this sphere in the Matheson last time though (didn't jump well) and possibly not quite the force of old these days; can't be ruled out if cheekpieces help spark a revival.

Former Grade 1-winning novice hurdler; mixed fortune over fences last season but managed to win a Punchestown Grade 2 event; first of two runs this season was over hurdles at Tipperary; up against it at this level.

T: Gordon Elliott

Former Grade 1-winning novice hurdler; mixed fortune over fences last season but managed to win a Punchestown Grade 2 (Darver Star third) before disappointing at Leopardstown and let down by his jumping at Thurles; has an edge in terms of race-fitness over his three serious rivals, having had a run over hurdles at Tipperary; that could be decisive.

Grade 1-winning novice hurdler had mixed results over fences last season but did win a Punchestown Grade 2 before being poor at Leopardstown and falling at Thurles; back over hurdles today on favoured left-handed course, so a chance if near his best.
