J: Simon Torrens

T: C Byrnes

Bumper/hurdles winner is lightly raced for his age; off the mark over fences here in March; held when completing in handicaps and that looked likely to be the case again when falling three out at Killarney, but handles heavy and you'd be slow to rule him out.

Form & Verdict

Hurdling campaign has been at bit mixed but Clonmel handicap win (soft-to-heavy) in November took his mark to a very creditable 133 and the highest-rated of these; reportedly never travelled at Punchestown following month and returns from a break here for chasing debut.

Won at Limerick (2m) over Christmas on belated seasonal debut; best effort since was when fourth over 2m4f at Cork; weakened late then and ended up almost 5l behind today's rival Cheerful Chap (second); poor run over 2m at Cork last time.

Form & Verdict

Useful (120-rated) hurdler who has finished second on latest two completed outings over fences, most recently just failing to get back up in Leopardstown rated novice last Sunday, having raced quite freely; chasing experience could give him an edge here.

Won twice for Gordon Elliott and had done well on his three Irish starts for Cian Collins, notably when beating subsequent Fairyhouse handicap winner Captains Nephew in a Down Royal novice event in January; struggled in the Red Rum at Aintree; stamina could be an issue, best form has been at around 2m.

J: Carl Millar

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.
