J: Colin Keane

T: W P Mullins

Very smart 2m hurdler who was back to the Flat with a bang last summer, hacking up from the front in a 1m6f handicap at Royal Ascot (good) and tidy winner of a 1m4f Group 3 at Naas (soft); favourite for the Melbourne Cup in November but faded into mid-division; his second in the Yorkshire Cup on return was also some way below his best form but he could have come on since that run; stamina to prove but last year's win here needs a deal of respect.

Very smart hurdler who was back to the Flat with a bang last summer, hacking up in a 1m6f handicap at Royal Ascot and tidy winner of a 1m4f Group 3 at Naas; favourite for the Melbourne Cup in November but faded into mid-division; leading contender on the Royal Ascot form and no shock if he's still capable of better.

J: Ryan Moore

T: W P Mullins

Won French Listed race (1m4f, soft) in 2021 on final Flat start and has since become a high-class hurdler for this yard, winning the Triumph Hurdle in March 2022 and finishing second in the Punchestown Champion Hurdle (2m, yielding) this April; could be well treated now back on the Flat and top Irish trainer has enjoyed plenty of success at this meeting; unraced on fast ground.
