No match for Allaho at Cheltenham but looked as good as ever when winning a Grade 3 at Cork last month; probably better at 3m these days though or would at least want the ground testing to be winning graded races at 2m4f.

Showed promise in a light campaign over hurdles last term and off the mark on third chase start at Wexford (extended 3m1f, heavy); held in a Grade 3 next time but handled better ground when solid running-on fourth in Punchestown festival handicap last time; stepping back up in trip will help him.

Not ideal giving weight away to all rivals on the back of a couple of below-par runs, but holds a live chance on the basis of his peak form; cheekpieces fitted for the first time; trainer has 38 per cent strike rate here across last five seasons (21 wins from 55 runners).

Lightly raced 5yo won bumper at last year's Festival and ran away with Thurles maiden hurdle this term; stiff task for one so inexperienced in Martin Pipe on handicap debut, too keen and didn't get home; more likely if settling better and interestingly Townend's choice.

French recruit fared really well on handicap debut at Fairyhouse (2m) over Easter when getting up to deprive stablemate Heia of second behind a ready winner with several other of today's rivals behind; 4lb higher but clearly on the improve and good chance this longer trip will suit.
