11st 12lb

J: Jack Kennedy

T: Gordon Elliott

Won a maiden at Gowran (2m, heavy) in November on fourth start; major improvement to score by 15l in a novice at Down Royal (2m1f, soft) in January; weakened from three out after being ridden prominently in the Coral Cup at Cheltenham; perhaps not sure to stay.

J: Sam Ewing

T: Gordon Elliott

Won a maiden at Gowran (2m, heavy) in November on fourth start and huge improvement to score by 15l in a novice at Down Royal (2m1f, soft) in January latest; fell at halfway on penultimate start in his only handicap (2m4f); has a tempting mark in this top handicap and there's enough stamina in pedigree to make today's third attempt at this sort of trip look worth a go.

11st 7lb

J: Jack Kennedy

T: Gordon Elliott

Won his Gowran maiden by 10l (2m, heavy) and raced a bit keenly when 15l off Waterford Whispers at Fairyhouse (upped to 2m4f); has a pull in the weights with the winner but will need to give himself a chance.

Promising debut when third in the Goffs Defender Bumper at the Punchestown festival but disappointed when odds at Downpatrick; unseated early on hurdles debut before clear-cut winner of ordinary Gowran 4yo maiden last month, having led from halfway; stiffer task here but going the right way.
