J: Donagh Meyler

T: John Patrick Ryan

Already has six runs under his belt this year; former dual bumper winner whose hurdles record now stands at 3-38 with 13 places; 2m4f novice winner on penultimate start; taking on a couple of useful rivals now on chasing debut.

J: Liam Quinlan

T: John Patrick Ryan

Backed up a cracking third in a novice handicap hurdle at the Dublin Racing Festival to hammer an odds-on favourite in a C&D rated novice hurdler here a fortnight ago; has to give away weight and Liam Quinlan can't claim his usual 5lb but should go well again.

Point-to-point winner; smart prospect who got off the mark under rules with a maiden hurdle success at Navan when stepped up to this trip for the first time; has to give weight away to his rivals but less exposed and could be capable.

J: Jack Kennedy

T: Gordon Elliott

Reached a decent standard over hurdles last season, placed over shorter before landing 2m4f maiden at Navan (yielding); seemingly found out in Grade 2 novice at Fairyhouse over Easter and now switches to fences; trip looks on the short side but nonetheless has to be respected.

Form & Verdict
Best form is at 2m and he's more exposed than his rivals; had a tough ask in a Grade 2 at Punchestown last month when tailed off and has a fair bit to find on form here too.

Two wins from first 3 starts hurdling this time last year but no more in further 16 starts in a busy campaign, highly tried on occasions; tries fences now.

Only two wins came in the early stages of last year's extremely busy campaign; good effort when third in a 26-runner novice handicap hurdle at Leopardstown at Christmas; faced several tough assignments after that, and then proved disappointing when dropped in class at Wexford.

Bumper and hurdles winner; good effort on his chasing debut at Naas but failed to match that at Leopardstown next time; beaten a long way back over hurdles at Thurles last month but feasibly handicapped on his Naas run and not to be discounted; tongue-tie tried here.
