Smart hurdler, whose three wins this year include Listed (mares) contest here in May; no impact in Galway Hurdle on latest but an intriguing contender here back on the Flat, having scored four times in 2019 in Britain at up to 1m4f.

10-48 overall (5-32 over hurdles) with biggest win in the Scottish Champion Hurdle in April 2022; ran well in defeat last February-April and gave easily her most encouraging performance since when having her first go over this sort of trip, running on well to take fourth in the Musselburgh qualifier (soft) last month; needs to build on that but worth a second look; first-time hood.

One 2m win from 21 races on the Flat, showing fair form; has shown ability in all four starts (maidens) over hurdles, the latest when runner-up to an impressive odds-on winner at Punchestown in October; could have more to give in this sphere and it is needed.

Won a Tramore maiden hurdle on his stable debut after a long absence early last year; never quite at his best after that and didn't count on last month's Leopardstown return but did shape with promise under a considerate enough ride behind a better-fancied stablemate; seems sure to come on for that.

Quirky character landed an AW maiden in the spring and quite consistent of late in handicaps, left with plenty to do after a slow start at Galway on latest when ground probably softer than ideal; not one to rule out.

Four AW wins in Britain including over 2m at Chelmsford; won maiden hurdle here last month on yard debut and chased home convincing winner Rich Belief in 1m7f Leopardstown handicap a fortnight ago, keeping on well; seems an out and out stayer so sharper track here may not play to his strengths.
