J: Gavin Ryan

One-time smart hurdler got off the mark on AW when making all to win over 1m4f here in September; back to form when a close second against a higher-rated rival over this trip last time in a falsely-run affair; a player.

J: Gavin Ryan

T: P J F Murphy

Course winner who has risen 17lb in the ratings since switching to current yard last summer; landed a 1m4f handicap here in September, making all; found a 6lb rise difficult to cope with in two starts since but this trip should suit given he finished a good third at Tramore in July, while he has won twice at 2m over hurdles.

T: P J F Murphy

Trainer has got a great tune out of 6yo whose mark has risen over 20lb since midsummer; prominent racer threw in a below-par effort last time but previously made all over C&D and Powell may well have a chance to set his own fractions here.
