Form & Verdict

Won four in a row over hurdles, at trips up to 2m4f, last summer; beaten 23l by Hercule Du Seuil on chase debut at Ballinrobe; 12lb better off including Gilligan's claim but it won't be enough to turn it around and he'll need further before long over fences.

T: Gordon Elliott

Progressive summer novice over hurdles last year; form of win in three-runner contest at Roscommon on second chase start is far from solid and ran no race in Grade 3 at Galway festival; doesn't want testing ground

Form & Verdict

Grade 3 winner over hurdles but just below that in six chase starts so far; her winter form behind the likes of Impervious and Dinoblue reads well and third to pair of useful Mullins-trained mares latest start at Killarney (2m4f); didn't get far when sent off 10/3 against odds-on Hercule Du Seuil when that rival was second at Ballinrobe; gets 19lb from that owner-mate now which is a fair chunk of change.

Won a mares' beginners' at Tipperary in the summer; a little inconsistent since and hasn't been at the level required to challenge in this contest, particularly from 2lb out of the weights; wears first-time cheekpieces.

Grade 3-winning hurdler here hasn't progressed over fences as hoped, despite landing long odds in Tipperary mares maiden; well held behind Fighting Fit in handicaps and tame hurdles effort latest hardly inspires confidence although remains well handicapped on her best form.

Better known as a chaser these days but won a Grade 3 over timber in her pomp; back on a good mark and these conditions will suit.

Form & Verdict

Maiden hurdle winner at Kilbeggan last year; has had jumping issues (three falls in eight chase starts) but better in that regard lately; outclassed by Mullins-trained odds-on chance at Tramore and similar outcome very likely.

Took her a long time to win a beginners' chase which she finally managed to do on easy ground at Sligo last month; jumped well then having had a few issues in that department in the past; much stiffer task here on second handicap start.
