J: Jack Foley

Returned from a long absence last September and has been unable to recapture her useful 2018/19 form, highlighted by a Punchestown festival handicap hurdle win; plenty to prove.

J: Brian Hayes

T: John C McConnell

Returned from a long absence last September and has been unable to recapture her useful 2019 form; however, her Irish trainer has an excellent 30% strike-rate with his British raiders so she's worth a second look off a handy mark in first-time cheekpieces; one to watch in the betting.

J: Shane Fitzgerald

T: John C McConnell

Struggled in three runs on the Flat having missed two years off the track but showed she retained ability when returned to hurdles at Leopardstown last month when eighth of 18; 2lb below her last winning mark and could be involved if she builds on her latest outing.

Decent dual-purpose sort in her day but has been poor on the Flat after a return from a long absence and difficult to fancy.

Returned from injury in September but little to recommend in two runs; others preferred.

Mare had bad injury and not seen again until recently; neither seasonal run altogether encouraging, though she has won here.

Dual Flat winner and smart hurdler; returned from two years off when never a factor on AW last month and likely to need this run as well.

T: John C McConnell

Quite talented hurdler in her day and twice a winner on the flat at this trip; also C&D second off 84 in early 2019 but absent since midfield in Galway Hurdle of 2019 so can only be watched in the circumstances.
