Form & Verdict

Downpatrick maiden hurdle winner last May; but failed to reach the first three in three handicap hurdle runs; improved for the switch to chasing when winning easily over 2m4f at Clonmel; strong chance despite an opening mark 12lb above hurdles rating.

Career best on this season's return when narrowly denied by Birdes Hill and that form was boosted by the runner-up but brought down at Limerick over Christmas and pulled up in the Grand National trial at Punchestown since; may bounce back over this sort of trip and can't be ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Placed in bumpers and a maiden hurdle for former yard; no impact in beginners' chases; different proposition on handicap debut at Leopardstown when in control a long way from home in an amateur riders' event; shorter trip now and 12lb higher but may continue on the upgrade.

Latest win was off 12lb lower last summer (3m1f) and mark has been edging up after three seconds during the winter, most recently at Leopardstown with Birchdale just behind him in third; largely consistent and ground-versatile type should be thereabouts again.

Lightly raced for a horse of his age; made little impression on his only start last season; off for over a year before Monday's Navan win; suited by testing conditions and can follow up off a 5lb higher mark providing this does not come too soon.

Form & Verdict

Three wins over hurdles, 0-7 over fences; if forgiven his last two runs, comes into the reckoning on the basis of two seconds at the Listowel festival, the first of them in a beginners' event won by the subsequent National Hunt Chase second Chemical Energy; jumping a cause for concern on more recent evidence.

Three wins over hurdles; went closest over fences when runner-up in a beginners' and a handicap at Listowel in September; not seen since falling at Fairyhouse in November; return to better ground will suit and unlikely to be far away if her fitness holds up.

Generally very disappointing since heavy-ground win on hurdle debut in Ireland in 2021, and didn't show a great deal in two 2m3f handicap chases for new stable last month; goes beyond 2m4f for first time under rules here; others have much less to prove.

He could improve for his recent stable and seasonal debut at Market Rasen but was well beaten, and he'd struggled on his final few starts in Ireland last season; others have less to prove.
