Form & Verdict
Highly rated Flat handicapper; runner-up in a pair of maiden hurdles and was in front admittedly with some way to go when falling in the Punchestown maiden hurdle won by Tax For Max; capable of winning a maiden hurdle and probably more but others preferred here.

Last Flat win came nearly two years ago; hasn't been at his best in two Flat starts this term but sprang a surprise when winning a Listed novice hurdle here on Tuesday, so claims if turning out again.

Form & Verdict
Dual winner on the Flat for Roger Charlton and could not have started his hurdles career in better style when winning a Roscommon maiden three weeks ago, pulling well clear with the runner-up; still an improver in all likelihood and should get into the shake-up here.

Consistent performer over flights, winning a Clonmel maiden hurdle and a Ballinrobe conditions contest; runner-up in a 2m4f Roscommon novice and third in a Flat maiden at the same venue on his last two starts; ground versatile and back over a good trip for him but likely to find a couple too good.

Highly tried over hurdles although presumably connections didn't think they would have to wait 15 months for his first win over hurdles, which finally came in a Punchestown maiden in May; sets a decent standard though as he returns to this sort of company and will be hard to beat.

Just one win from 46 starts but his only success was a recent one when he capitalised on a career-low mark at Downpatrick in June; mixed form since and tailed off in a Listed event at Galway last week; this is more realistic.
