Form & Verdict
Good novice hurdler, second to Bob Olinger in the Grade 1 here last year; made a fluent start to his chasing career with a sound display of jumping at Fairyhouse last month; more to come from him although this looks a hot little race.

Smart novice hurdler last season, running well when falling at the last here in the Supreme (2m, soft); unbeaten in three races over fences, benefiting from Riviere D'Etel's last-fence blunder when taking the Irish Arkle at Leopardstown (2m1f, yielding) last month by half a length; jumps soundly in the main; a leading candidate, unlikely to be far away.

Smart novice hurdler last season, when placed in three Grade 1 events including second to Bob Olinger at Naas; jumped well on chasing debut at Fairyhouse; unextended in beating two much inferior rivals at Naas; stable has won this with an odds-on favourite in four of the last six years; Riviere D'Etel provides strong opposition this time.

Made an impressive start to his chasing career when convincingly beating Beacon Edge at Down Royal in October; disappointed in the Drinmore subsequently but the slower ground here will suit him better and he should go well.

Made the breakthrough over hurdles on this card last year after a string of placed efforts in that sphere; 125-rated hurdler has proven much better chaser, as confirmed by mark of 141 over these obstacles; step up to this trip an unknown but possible it will eke out improvement on this ground, having finished second in 2m4.5f Naas Grade 3 a fortnight ago on heavy.

Made a blistering start to his chasing career when blowing Beacon Edge away at Down Royal but no match for that rival when fourth in the Drinmore and his form has dipped since as he was beaten 20l by Blue Lord at Naas before finishing 50l behind Bob Olinger at Punchestown in January; has been freshened up since and he'd be a force to be reckoned with if returning to his early-season form.

Form & Verdict
Classy hurdler in 2018/19; returned from a long absence to win on chasing debut at Killarney over this trip in October; the runner-up that day is a solid yardstick and, with improvement likely, can go well.

Useful hurdler who made winning chase debut at Killarney in October (2m1f, yielding to soft) but not plain sailing over fences since and his race was run a fair way from home in the Grand Annual at Cheltenham last month; now has something to prove.

Won at Killarney (chase debut) in October on return from long absence, beating Buddy Rich; below par in both starts since (beaten when falling latest) but has possibilities if back to the reappearance form; tongue-tie applied.

Smart novice hurdler and off the track for two years before making a successful chasing debut at Killarney in October; below par effort and did not jump well in a 3-runner winners event at Naas last month; better ground would suit but respected if his latest run can be ignored.
