Has shown enough in four starts in bumpers to suggest he can be winning races under Rules; return to quicker ground should suit and has each-way claims.

French recruit emerged from long absence when second at last year's Festival and career-best on latest of three starts this season when just touched off in 23-runner 2m5f Coral Cup at Cheltenham in a tongue tie; encounters much quicker ground here, big shout if he handles it.

T: John Joseph Hanlon

Half-brother to five winners; pulled-up on debut at Monksgrange last month; impossible to assess, but perhaps some chance that he is a dark-horse for this; trainer provided the winning favourite last year and has booked Rob James, the best value for 7lb in the game.

Second in this race last year, and also runner-up in this season's National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham; beat stablemate Farclas and Mister Fogpatches in the Troytown; fell at eighth (Canal Turn) in the Grand National; 10lb higher than for the Troytown, but Scottish National-winning rider Rob James claims the most valuable 7lb in the business.

T: Christian Williams

Back to form the last twice with wins at Exeter (3m, soft) and in the competitive Eider at Newcastle (4m1f, good to soft) in first-time cheekpieces (retained); proved well suited by that step up in trip on her seventh chase start and she's very much respected up 8lb; has won on good ground.

T: Gordon Elliott

Improved mare who looked every inch a stayer at Punchestown in November (good to yielding) on her latest completion over 3m, so it's to her credit that she ran so well back over 2m4f at Navan in December; needs to come up with more off her much higher British mark.

Won a hurdle and chase in France as 3yo; not seen again until runner-up in a conditions event over hurdles at Punchestown (2m4f) last April, since which he's been mid-division in two competitive 2m handicaps; hooded last two outings but tongue-tie enlisted today; needs to show something new but he's very lightly raced and particularly unexposed going back up in trip.

Always prominent when runner-up in last season's Irish National (3m5f, yielding; had earlier figured on heavy) and he won well from the front in a good 3m handicap at Navan (good) in November; creditable second in a Grade 1 last time; a leading contender on form and a bold show looks on its way.
