Form & Verdict

Terrific strike-rate and has won the last two renewals of this; his only defeat in six starts since landing this twelve months ago came in the Galway Plate; first run since beating Kemboy in Gowran Grade 2 in October but goes well fresh; goes on anything but the better the ground the better his chance.

J: Paul Townend

T: W P Mullins

Has a fine strike-rate (14-28) over fences and goes very well (8-12) on good ground; back on song when winning six-runner 2m4f Grade 2 at Gowran last September, but was then off until pulling up in the Melling at Aintree two weeks ago; something to prove after that but he's a big player on his best form and conditions should be ideal; wears headgear for the first time.

J: Paul Townend

T: W P Mullins

Acts on any going; absent since bagging Grade 2 honours at Gowran Park (2m4f) last September; has a respectable strike-rate, including when fresh, but his Grade 1 record is far from convincing on the whole; something to prove back at the top level.

J: Paul Townend

T: W P Mullins

Has won half of his 26 starts over fences and excels in small-field contests like this one in which he has twice been successful; only defeats in last ten starts have been in successive renewals of the Galway Plate and at the weights he has every chance against Envoi Allen but doubt it will pan out that way if the latter is on song.

Ex-Willie Mullins, best known for winning the 2021 Galway Plate; also beat Hardline in a 2m4f Grade 2 event at Gowran later that year; won a valuable handicap chase at this meeting two years ago, second in the same race last season; tailed off at Portrush in March on first start for Caroline McCaldin, may have needed that, and perhaps premature to write off.

Form & Verdict

Grade 1 winner as a novice over C&D and second to Allaho in the Ryanair last year; back to winning ways in Grade 2 at Gowran in February but let down by his jumping in this year's renewal of the Ryanair; type to bounce back and, if he does, has every chance.

Acts on heavy; third in the 2022 Irish Gold Cup over 3m, but seen more often at about 2m4f and that's where he's registered his best wins and peak efforts; backward steps on last two outings further undermine his prospects.

Progressive hurdler in 2019-20 novice campaign and high-class chaser subsequently, winning a 2m4f Grade 1 novice, but this 10yo was below par in Grade 2 chase at Kempton in January latest; something to prove in hot company now back hurdling and a shorter trip may be preferable; cheekpieces are added.

No match for Allaho on a few occasions, including in Clonmel Grade 2 on sole run this term; now wears tongue-tie; holds a respectable chance on best form but he's not the safest jumper in this field, having fallen a few times, most recently last April when in command at Fairyhouse.

J: Rachael Blackmore

T: Henry De Bromhead

Free-going front-runner who eventually shook off a useful one at Naas last month (2m, yielding; has won on heavy) but her finishing can't be depended on beyond that trip, let alone on a stiff finish like today's; she may also have to share the early lead and looks an unlikely winner.
