Eight-time winner under both codes and returned to his best form when landing a C&D handicap hurdle last month; up 6lb for that and definitely on the short-list here.

Form & Verdict

Record of 2-16 over fences, with last score in valuable Killarney event last summer; has dropped down the weights again and put in reassuring run at Punchestown over 2m last time; this longer trip is a plus; big player.

Form & Verdict

Flat and hurdle winner failed to complete in first two chase starts but improved significantly to make all in a beginners' event over C&D last time; a repeat of that effort should make him competitive on handicap debut.

Too Bright

11st 9lb

J: Liam McKenna

T: Noel Meade

Had become a frustrating operator prior to Kilbeggan beginners win, and backed it up with another decent third at same 15-days ago, although his jumping was a bit suspect at times in the latter; his rating alone, allied with his rider's valuable 5lb claim, suggests big things here, and it will be no surprise if he lands the top step of the podium.

Form & Verdict

Smart hurdler got off the mark on second chase start at Killarney last time, rightly rewarded the race on appeal after being hampered; made a bad mistake too that day, so will have to address that issue but has scope for improvement; player.
