Mainly poor in Ireland and was picked up for just 3,500gns in October; new yard has had a few run well at big prices this month, though, and he's worth keeping an eye on at this sort of level.

Four course wins over the past two winters, three of them over 7.2f; has little wiggle room off this mark (4lb higher than when last successful) and was below par last time but gives his trainer, who also saddles Soi Dao, a decent hand.

Failed to win for John Butler but the yard switch has helped, with him running above himself in a novice before winning last time (both over C&D); is 3lb higher tonight and doesn't have Billy Loughnane taking 7lb off but is still considered.

Ex-Irish filly who didn't take to hurdles in a couple of tries in the summer before clicking over C&D of late; a 7lb rise demands more but she has decent claims of the hat-trick.
