11st 2lb

J: Nico de Boinville

T: Mrs John Harrington

No hurdle wins since January 2022 but won on the Flat at Ascot last year; didn't show much back over timber at the Dublin Racing Festival last time and others are more convincing.

11st 12lb

J: Keith Donoghue

T: Mrs John Harrington

Won the stayers' contest at the Shergar Cup meeting on the Flat last year before lesser efforts in both the Irish and Newmarket Cesarewitch; ran well when last seen over timber at the Punchestown festival, finishing runner-up to the well treated Seddon; while he's a point winner, he hasn't shown much over this sort of trip under rules and was ninth in this race off the same mark last season.

9st 7lb

J: Kevin Stott

T: Mrs John Harrington

Made up a lot of ground when close second of 20 at Galway (2m1f, heavy) in July and came from last to first in authoritative style at Ascot's Shergar Cup (2m, good to soft); form dipped when seventh in the Irish Cesarewitch and to win this demands a career best but the test may well suit him.
