Form & Verdict

Useful hurdler with a mark of 135 but bred to be a better chaser and it looked that way when justifying favouritism with ease at Killarney (2m1f, yielding to soft); this company will test his mettle but he should have better days ahead of him.

Form & Verdict

Was getting 6lb off Senecia when beating him at Wexford but was better again on his return there over 2m4f, proving too good for the useful Saldier; dropping back to 2m1f wasn't ideal at Killarney but again he ran well; in the mix.

Faded in the 2m5f Coral Cup last March; won small-field novice chases at Wexford (2m, yielding; 2m4f, good to yielding) later but has found 3m on testing ground beyond him in competitive handicaps since; the return to 2m4f should suit but he needs to put a subsequent early fall behind him.

Form & Verdict

Useful mare who has won all sorts, including a chase on her first attempt at Thurles in March; tasted defeat on four occasions since then and limitations might be exposed once more.

Latest win came in a 2m2f mares chase here in March; consistent since without winning, most recently behind R'Eveleyn Pleasure at Cork; should get closer but others preferred.

Impressive when beating subsequent dual Grade 3 winner Hercule Du Seuil at Ballinrobe in May (2m1f, good to yielding; fine on softer) and he was conceding 6lb to Watch House Cross when beaten just under 4l by that rival at Wexford; needs respecting and this trip should bring him on some more.

Veteran is on a very long losing run; place chance at best here on his 100th run at this track, where he has nine wins and 27 places to his name, the latest when third over 1m4f on his penultimate start; down the field over this trip on latest.

Losing run now stands at 46 and goes back to 2018 but it was a good front-running effort when third here two weeks ago; while he's a nine-time course winner that will probably win another race or two around here, stall 17 is tough for his preferred front-running tactics.

Over three years since veteran gained the most recent of his 15 career wins (9-time winner here) but still competitive on occasion including when third at Navan in August and can never be ruled out at his favourite track.
