Three-time hurdle winner is already a better chaser after winning her first two starts in this sphere; won a match at Kelso last time (left alone two out) after winning a Ballinrobe beginners; jumps well and handles soft; will take the beating.

Five-time winner (two chases); soft to heavy ground didn't hold her back when running well in a Grade 3 chase at Limerick last week (3m); has yet to win a handicap but hasn't contested many and she's of interest.

Productive mare with three hurdle wins and two over fences at up to 3m, including here last summer; ground against her of late and again unlikely to get her ground here but could sneak a placing.

Five time hurdle winner isn't as good over fences yet in three starts and has a bit to find today with these principals.

Posted his best hurdle effort when winning off 95 at Ballinrobe in May and followed up with a career best chase success; not as good over hurdles since though and might find this trip on the sharp side.

Out of his depth in a novice chase last time but tailed off in a handicap hurdle before then and this 12yo is now a 24-race maiden; on the plus side, he did finish third in this 12 months ago.
