Has had his share of periods on the sidelines but has come back strongly this year, winning the Mayo National at Ballinrobe before being headed late in a 3m handicap hurdle at Kilbeggan; still looks well in over hurdles and this sort of trip might be his best; the one to beat.

J: Phillip Enright

T: Mark Michael McNiff

Won over hurdles here as a juvenile in 2019; chase winner at Tipperary last year; off for 12 months and probably best watched.

Form & Verdict

Winner in eventful fashion of a Killarney juvenile maiden hurdle last summer; winless since but gave some indication of being effective over a longer trip when last seen at the same venue in May; others look more likely though.

Justified favouritism when winning a maiden hurdle on debut when trained by Willie Mullins; didn't really kick-on and it was a low-key yard debut when tailed off at Killarney last month; entitled to come on for that but others hold stronger claims.

Course winner; not seen since finishing fourth on this card last year over 2m6f when with Willie Mullins; very best form on soft and might need this.

Had a brief spell over fences over the winter; no impact back over hurdles last twice and hard to fancy.

Second reserve; consistent for his current trainer, winning a Thurles handicap hurdle and performing well since; stays well and acts on any ground.

Two wins over hurdles, the most recent over 3m at Thurles nearly two years ago; seasonal best on return to his original trainer when second over 3m at this venue after Christmas; unplaced in a handicap of a higher standard at Fairyhouse last time; stablemate Bal De Rio is marginally better suited by the race conditions but lacks a recent run.
