Relishes the slop and finally off the mark over fences at Punchestown ten days ago, beating a well-fancied rival; 6lb rise is fine, so is Limerick and has to be respected.

Former useful hurdler, winning four times in all and capable of good form, marks in the mid-130s when at his peak; down a long way in the ratings now; managed a good run when 9l second in a veterans' handicap chase here last month; fair sixth at Navan ten days ago, but others are better suited by these race conditions.

Poor record over fences and no better for cheekpieces last time; tends to contest much better races and ground no issue to him; yard form (0-40 this season) a concern but can't rule out.

Local runner anomalous here as 3-37 hurdling but only once ran over fences (lifeless effort last year and unseated); basically struggling this year hurdling but ran well here in the past and is a dark one; 7lb wrong; her yard won the big handicap Tuesday at Leopardstown.
