Form & Verdict

Compensated for runner-up spots at Listowel and Clonmel when coming out on top at Gowran 33 days ago; raised 5lb for that to a mark of 106, which should see him ultra-competitive in this one in receipt of weight from the majority of his dangers; progressive and ticks a lot of the right boxes.

Two hurdle wins to his name; little impact in two beginners' chases; jockey said he never travelled and made a mistake in back straight when pulled up on handicap debut in Thurles won by Sunnyvilla; cheekpieces tried now

Form & Verdict

Went into the notebook at Wexford and even more so when chasing home an easy winner at Cork in the shape of Irish Point, the latter subsequently narrowly denied in the Grade One Royal Bond Hurdle at Fairyhouse; looks a filly with a real touch of class and the first-time hood probably won't need to bring about a whole lot extra; lightly-raced and likely to be improving in any case.

Form & Verdict

Has had a lot on his plate the last twice, latest when off the pace behind the classy Fennor Cross in a Supreme Novice Hurdle Trial at Cheltenham; will find life a lot less demanding in this one, and can be expected to make a bold bid to defy top weight with first-time blinkers now added.

Form & Verdict

0-10 over hurdles but did hold a high of 114 at one point last year and that would be enough to see him go close here if he can click back into top gear; two recent flat runs should have him spot on; would not underestimate.

Form & Verdict

Tramore maiden winner has not done a great deal wrong in five starts over timber, latest in a Cork 2m4f handicap when going down narrowly after an epic tussle off a mark of 107; ground as testing as he has encountered so far, but gives the impression it won't be an issue and should have a good crack at it.

Decent debut run in a Cork maiden but evidence is thin on the ground, and on the face of it, needs to have come on a fair bit; that not out of the question all the same.
