Form & Verdict

Useful hurdler at this sort of trip; went chasing last term after missing two years and was second to a decent sort in this race; ran quite well on first start of the season but disappointing since; drop back in trip may help and if he puts it all together he's capable of winning.

Form & Verdict

Point winner whose hurdles form tailed off alarmingly last term after he beat 1-14 fav Kilcruit in maiden here; decent start over fences when third to Mighty Potter at Down Royal but has made mistakes and been rather disappointing in three starts since; has the rating to win but some doubts persist.

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.

Very progressive hurdler in 2021 but jumping has left a lot to be desired in three runs over fences; wouldn't have been far off the placed horses in a decent contest at Gowran last time but for unseating two out and far from hopeless here if he can cut out the mistakes; tongue-tie.
