Form & Verdict
Flat and hurdles winner, 0-8 over fences; runner-up off his lower hurdles mark in handicaps at Navan in November and at this venue last month; chase form is not particularly convincing, and he did nothing to advertise his chance at Cork three weeks ago.

Downpatrick winner last summer, his only hurdles run since 2019 and none since; had run a brave race chasing on final start for Ian O'Connor (2-51 with jumpers last five seasons) before falling at Tramore; new yard not had a jumps runner in several years, 0-20 last five seasons on Flat; seems best watched.

No joy in a handicap on his recent course visit; entitled to need that sharpener on the back of a spell over fences, but has questions to answer; no forlorn hope if he can run to somewhere near his mark all the same.

Ex-Irish; without a win since taking a 2m handicap hurdle at Kilbeggan (good to yielding) in the summer of 2019; hasn't shown much over fences lately (and 0-19 overall) so will need to take a major step forward on debut for this trainer.
