Useful 84-rated operator on the Flat whose best effort over hurdles arrived in 2m maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse in late January; no match for Icare Allen last time in Grade 3 but jumped to his left there and may be better going this way around; big chance with ground to suit.

T: Ian Duncan

Showed little in Ireland on first four starts and pulled up at 100-1 at Hexham (2m4f, heavy) on stable debut three weeks ago; now goes handicapping off a lowly mark but he's hard to fancy.

Never involved in hurdling debut at Limerick; needs to take a giant step forward to feature here.

Maiden was a close 4th at Sligo in August but below that level at Kilbeggan two weeks after; needs that best form after a break.

French recruit; plenty to like about his hurdling debut at Fairyhouse in February; would have finished even closer there but for making a mistake two out; definitely has ability and one to keep an eye on; don't dismiss.

Won a Tramore maiden hurdle in July 2022 but below that since; however, should have improved from Naas comeback run and the drying ground can help; cheekpieces on; check the market.
