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.

Good 6-10 record over fences; career-best when winning 2m1f Grade 1 at Leopardstown last Christmas; overturned at long odds-on by stablemate Gentleman de Mee at Dublin Racing Festival; never going well in the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham and made little impact in third behind stablemate Energumene when dropped in trip here at the festival.

Turned over at short odds in the Dublin Chase most recently but could well bounce back from that defeat; progressive otherwise and he was impressive at Leopardstown (2m1f, yielding) the time before, recording a third Grade 1 win; confirmed his stamina for 2m4f with Grade 2 win at Clonmel (soft to heavy) in November and remains particularly unexposed at this trip; respectable third in the Arkle at this meeting last year; major player.

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.

Very smart chaser in his prime for Jessica Harrington and was only 33-1 for year's Grand National (unseated early); still capable of useful form winning three from five in points for Susie Doyle this season; unseated when long odds-on at Lisronagh; jumped notably well when winning a 2m4f hunters chase at Cork a month ago.

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.

Yard won the race in 2019 and this one has a great record in it, runner-up two years ago and his perseverance paying off 12 months ago (both on good to soft); better than ever when beating Triple Trade at Cheltenham (2m, good) in October but this will ask a lot of him, 12lb higher than last year with soft ground slower than he likes.

Classy sort whose three chase wins include Red Rum Handicap at Aintree and valuable 2m Cheltenham handicap in October under hefty weight when racing up with pace; well below best on softer ground under top-weight over C&D however, jumping sketchily; has form on soft but suited by better ground; dry forecast at least.
