Point-to-point winner has been a regular visitor here over the summer, notably touched off in 2m3f bumper and last month when never far away third over C&D on hurdles debut; tongue-tie now fitted and should be thereabouts.

Useful bumper form; off the mark at fourth attempt when running away with 2m1f Ballinrobe contest last month; dam a winning hurdler, should make her mark over hurdles but may not want the ground to soften too much.

Bumper winner last summer (good) has finished second on both C&D maiden hurdle runs (out of depth in Grade 3 in between) most recently last month after a break behind a ready winner; seems sure to play a role again on favoured ground.

Successful twice (2m2f/2m) on soft ground in the autumn; good third in a couple of handicaps at Leopardstown (2m4f/3m) since and the latest effort shows he's effective in a huge field; ties in with Waterford Whispers on the penultimate piece of form; consistent and steadily progressive, so looks set for another big run.

20-race maiden for various trainers, some fairly useful placed form two years ago but recent form in handicaps has been ordinary enough; first start for current yard and others preferred.
