Form & Verdict

Started well over fences last season with wins in a beginners' event and a Grade 3 race at Galway; Grade 1-placed twice, second to Saint Roi at Leopardstown, and third behind Banbridge and Saint Roi at Aintree; had a spin over hurdles at Tipperary before creditable fifth in Galway Plate; good chance here, despite meeting Mt Leinster on 8lb worse than handicap terms.

Form & Verdict

Admirably versatile nine-time winner, has been struggling to establish consistency lately; tame effort when favourite for Killarney event in which The Little Yank was second; two ordinary runs on the Flat since then; will need to be in peak form now.

J: Tom Harney

T: Cian Collins

Splendidly tough and durable front-runner who took her record to 10-96 when rallying tenaciously to beat Conyers Hill in valuable 2m Fairyhouse handicap last month; not at that level in Scottish Champion Hurdle (Ayr) 10 days ago but can never be ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Won twice as a novice in 2021-22 season; good comeback run last December when third in Fairyhouse handicap but following month ran no sort of race at the same venue; only two runs since then were at the Galway festival; second in six-runner Flat event, moderate fourth in a handicap chase two days later; comes out best at the weights but perhaps vulnerable.

Durable dual-purpose performer with Willie Mullins whose last win came in Fairyhouse handicap chase two years ago; hasn't run since September and probably best watched.

Has done a lot of racing since his last win, two most recent runs provide no encouragement; tailed off in Kilbeggan race in which Irish Blaze was third two week ago.
