Runner-up in handicaps at Punchestown and this venue during the winter; poor run in between over 2m4f; staying on when falling at the last at this venue on the penultimate start; let down by his jumping here 12 days ago; could reverse form with third-placed Red Striker if avoiding error.

Maiden has been runner-up in handicaps at Punchestown and Naas during the winter; poor run in between was over 2m4f; staying on when falling at the last at Naas last time; a good chance he can make amends.

Ex-Jim Bolger gelding has run well in two of his three handicap starts, notably when second in a big field here last month (winner just failed to follow up); stamina to prove on first run over this far.
