Lightly raced 8yo who won a Listed chase at Thurles (2m6f, yielding) in November before Grade 3 second at Tramore (2m7f, heavy); made mistakes when pulled up in Leopardstown handicap in February and 3m2f stretched him last time, but he has a lofty mark to defy even if bouncing back.

Second-season chaser; no top weight has won this since Dublin Flyer in 1995 but he's a genuine Grade 2 performer (at least) who wasn't beaten at all far under top weight at the Cheltenham Festival (2m4f, soft) and his class should see him competitive for a long way, at the least; still only a 6yo and the chosen one of Paul Townend; jumps well; big player.

Second-season chaser who has shown smart form in Grade 2 events over 2m4f the last twice, proving unlucky at Thurles (would likely have won but for final-fence fall) then second at Gowran behind Ryanair contender Janadil; still unexposed at this distance; seems versatile ground-wise; has the ability to play a major role on handicap debut.

His heavy-ground form was over hurdles; not always a fluent jumper but won Grade 2 at Cheltenham (3m1f) in January and matched that career best when fourth in a 2m4f Grade 1 there (soft) last month; he also negotiated these fences in the National last year but folded turning for home and was pulled up, so there is no evidence he will stay the trip.

Versatile ground-wise; not always a fluent jumper but was generally good in that department here last time, winning the Cotswold Chase (Grade 2) over 3m1f; sole Grade 1 success came over 3m (as a novice); has got better with each run this season but may not be crying out for this drop back in distance.

Useful sort but his Grade 1 success at Punchestown in 2022 is weak form for the level; 0-4 in 2023, well-held third to stellar stablemate Galopin Des Champs at Leopardstown most recently; all of his rivals have stronger claims on balance.
