Group 3-placed for Aidan O'Brien on the Flat; ran okay on hurdle bow when placed at Galway and left that effort behind when bolting up in a maiden hurdle at Listowel; unproven on slower ground but warrants respect.

Enjoyed a fine season last year, winning the Queen Alexandra Stakes and rounding off the year when a very close third in the Irish Cesarewitch; the likeliest alternative should the favourite run below par.

Form & Verdict

Smart bumper performer who was unlucky to bump into Facile Vega at last season's Cheltenham Festival; made easy work of his hurdle bow at Down Royal earlier this month, although there was room for improvement in the jumping department; plenty of potential, seems to handle any ground and must be high on any shortlist.

Both chase wins this term have been at Navan, notably defeat of Nick Rockett in 3m Grade 2 Ten Up Novices' on heavy; nothing like that form in Brown Advisory at Cheltenham however, some major blunders; jumping remains a concern at this level.

Second in the 2022 Champion Bumper; won at Navan over fences this season in a maiden in November (2m4f, soft to heavy; Fact To File second) and Grade 2 in February (3m, heavy); jumping still not polished for most recent win and this will ask an even harder question, but conditions will hold no fears.

Form & Verdict

Won Grade 3 novice hurdle at Limerick in March and probably needed last month's return back at that venue; has a bit to find and she's more exposed than some of these but she's not without some sort of chance.

Point winner who landed a bumper on seasonal return at Galway last month before following up over hurdles at that venue when stepped up in trip; puts his unbeaten record on the line and this is tougher stepping up in class but more progress likely.

Ended last season one of the country's leading staying novice hurdlers when runner-up in 3m Grade 1s at Cheltenham and Punchestown; reappeared for successful chasing debut at Galway (2m6f), warming to his jumping on heavy ground in beating Favori De Champdou, the pair clear from some way out; potentially high-class staying novice and every chance he'll confirm that form here.
