Has taken a while to find the winning touch, but has come good lately, showing a liking for left-handed tracks and 2m4f in winning handicaps at this venue and at Naas; possibly didn't stay 3m last time and back markedly in trip here.

Has taken a while to find the winning touch, but has come good lately, showing a liking for left-handed tracks and 2m4f in winning handicaps at this venue and at Naas; form of his recent success was given a timely boost when runner-up Krabat won at Clonmel on Thursday.

Off the mark at the 20th attempt under Rules when winning a Navan handicap chase on his penultimate start and posted a creditable effort in defeat when fourth of 15 at Fairyhouse earlier in the month; may need career best to land this but he's looked promising in five runs over fences.

Winless over hurdles but already a better chaser, getting up late to beat subsequent runaway Leopardstown winner Siberian Star in a Navan handicap chase last month; up 6lb for that and looks likely to go close again.

0-19 under rules but encouragement to be gleaned from last couple of starts over fences in beginners' chases, especially four weeks ago at Gowran when runner-up over this trip; going the right way in this sphere and likely to appreciate stiff finish here; obvious contender.

0-18 under rules but encouragement to be gleaned from second start over fences last time when behind Shes Some Doll and Banjo at Thurles; step up to 2m4f from 2m2f should suit; each-way claims.

Has been struggling in handicaps of late, blinkers seemingly lighting him up last time at Tipperary; headgear now discarded and can only be watched.
