Winner of a bumper and twice over hurdles, including over 3m here in May; a shade unlucky on his chase debut here in July before disappointing at Galway; probably the best horse in the race but not yet as convincing over fences as the previous winners.

Landed a pair of handicap hurdles at Kilbeggan and Clonmel in the spring before making a winning debut over fences at Kilbeggan in July; already looks a better chaser than hurdler and should go close here.

Has won four of his last five starts and justified odds-on favouritism at Gowran last time; shoved up another 12lb but hard to gauge where his ceiling is and potentially more to come at this trip.

Form & Verdict

Decent handicap hurdler made a winning debut over fences at Thurles in March; held in better company since and looks the outsider of these.

Winning hurdler and came good on his second run over fences when narrowly landing a 2m1f beginners chase at Tipperary in July; more needed here but the extra distance should help and the ground should suit.

J: Jack Kennedy

T: Gordon Elliott

Talented hurdler returned from a lenghty absence when narrowly denied over hurdles at Wexford; let down by his jumping when sixth of 7-runners on recent debut over fences; hard to be strong on here on the back of that, but capable of much better and interesting to see connections reach for the cheekpieces in a bid to recapture the sparkle; should go well.

Much improved on his second start over fences when easily landing a Kilbeggan beginners in July; this is tougher but his jumping was good last time and that will be an important factor here.

3-6 over fences having made all in competitive handicap at Fairyhouse (2m1f, soft) in January; on a lofty mark for his first British start but this 7yo is clearly progressive for his top Irish yard and has to be respected.
