Form & Verdict

Bolted up in a French bumper on sole start for Yannick Fouin and looked like a top prospect, winning with any amount in hand in a maiden hurdle at Naas on debut for this yard; likely improver again and has already shown he handles testing ground; leading claims for last year's winning yard, although the drop in trip might not be ideal for him.

T: W P Mullins

Ultra-impressive winner of Grade 1 novice hurdles at Cheltenham (2m5f, soft) and Punchestown (2m3f, yielding) last spring; second to subsequent Cheltenham Festival winners Teahupoo and State Man on first two runs this term; beaten 5l by runner-up Bob Olinger when third in Irish Champion Hurdle (2m, soft) in February and that rival should be suited by this step back up in trip, but it's also a positive for this fellow (who was maybe unsuited by the switch to front-running last time); has a chance of reversing the form.

Form & Verdict

Looked good when winning a C&D novice hurdle on her penultimate outing; couldn't build on that when only third of seven at Thurles since in Listed company; peak form is on better ground and she's going to have to improve to win this; tongue-tie on.

Form & Verdict

Wide margin point winner before £68,000 sale at Cheltenham in April; made easy work of her Rules debut in a mares' bumper at Limerick prior to improving for a step up in trip on hurdle debut back at Limerick 19 days ago; keen that day and while a shorter trip may help her settle here, there's a suspicion she will come into her own over further than this distance.

Four-time hurdle winner; last win came in a Listed handicap at Killarney in August before a fine run in defeat under a big weight at Listowel; found to have made a respiratory noise last time in a Listed hurdle at Punchestown, a race also contested by Broomfield Bijou; definite chance with tongue-tie fitted; good 5lb claimer.
