Won 3m Limerick maiden hurdle two years ago (heavy) but chase form hasn't measured up in six attempts; has looked regressive on recent hurdles form so questions to answer now back chasing.

Form & Verdict

Useful staying novice hurdler last season (rated 125) although jumping tended to let him down on occasions; probably needed the run on recent chase debut at Gowran (2m4f) and no surprise if he played a role here back up in trip.

J: Mr B O’Neill

A revelation when easily winning Grand National Trial at Punchestown (3m3f, heavy) last month; needs to prove that was no one-off and he's unlikely to be on such demanding ground today, but heavy going may not be essential for him and the handicapper hasn't been overly harsh; a possible.

Useful hurdler whose last win came over 3m at Clonmel in October and took him to a career-high mark of 126; pulled up after an indifferent round of jumping on chasing debut at Hereford in January however so questions to answer here.
