J: Mr R James

T: Gordon Elliott

Bumper winner in 2021 has run some cracking races in defeat in six hurdle tries, including when second here in April; below that level at Tramore since at 2m when 4-7fav; needs to return to previous best.

J: Michael O’Sullivan

T: Gordon Elliott

Useful bumper performer has stepped up a level in performance on latest two maiden hurdle runs, finishing second at Navan (2m, heavy) and chased home a warm favourite over 2m6f at Downpatrick on soft; clearly trip-versatile but this sharp 2m possibly not ideal; major player all the same.

J: Davy Russell

T: Gordon Elliott

Bumper winner on debut; has run well in defeat in each of his maiden hurdle outings since; beaten roughly 10l over 2m3f at Naas last time and that form is working out but not certain to appreciate return to 2m.
