Dual C&D winner last summer and has been running well in defeat this term; touched off over 7f at Naas last month and solid fourth over this trip at the Curragh last time; should be thereabouts.

Form & Verdict

Absent for roughly a year; was runner-up in maiden hurdles back then and, although both wins have come on the AW, he has shown comparable form on turf including when close up in a 1m2f Curragh handicap last summer; not ruled out despite lacking a run.

J: Rachael Blackmore

T: Henry De Bromhead

Dual AW winner at Dundalk and placed turf form last autumn; decent seconds in big-field maiden hurdles at Gowran and Limerick last season, not at that level of form on last month's hurdles return at Navan, too keen and not getting home in testing conditions; more expected of here on likely better ground.

Form & Verdict

Can be keen but was clear of the rest when second to a superior rival in a soft-ground rated race over Gowran's extended 1m two weeks ago; nudged up 4lb for that but he defied this mark in a Curragh handicap last year.

Landed handicaps last year at Leopardstown (1m2f) and Ascot (1m); struggling to recapture that form and unlikely to appreciate today's softening conditions; tries cheekpieces.
