Bumper winner and 2-4 over hurdles; very nearly added to his tally in a 2m4f handicap at Tipperary when last seen in May; off since but he's a respected newcomer to fences in a race of this stature.

This trip is short enough given she won her maiden hurdle over 2m4f (on soft) but she ran well behind Hollow Games over this far at Navan (chase debut) and this is easier than that.

Acts well on heavy; won three of her four starts this term, including last month's 2m4f Grade 2 mares' chase at Cheltenham, and the exception was her second of 20 to Coko Beach in the 3m Troytown at Navan (not her best jumping, crowded); 7yos can no longer be ruled out straightaway, following Noble Yeats's triumph in 2022, but a stronger indication of stamina from her would be preferable.

Has turned a corner of late, gaining wide-margin wins at Clonmel (2m2f, heavy) and Doncaster (2m4f, good to soft; Carole's Pass and Pink Legend third and fourth) either side of her useful effort in a good 3m Navan handicap; up in class today but she was impressive last time and is likely to be involved.

Front-runner; ridden last five starts by claimer Carl Millar; has raised his game this winter but is relatively exposed over fences and, although a heavy-ground hurdle winner in 2022, he's missed three races on soft and heavy going since August; it remains to be seen how he copes with today's surface.

Form & Verdict

Not as good as a few of these over hurdles (despite winning twice) but it was a career best by some margin on his second chase start at Clonmel (2m, soft/heavy), where he was left clear two out but would have won anyway; penalised for this but looks on the upgrade.
