Only beaten a neck in the Fred Winter before winning a valuable handicap in the stewards' room at this venue and respectable sixth at Punchestown to end the campaign; has to step up on what she's done so far but gets weight from all.

Excelled on quicker ground last season; returned with Grade 3 win at Fairyhouse and some good runs in defeat since; may progress again now on quicker ground and Kelly is good value for the 5lb he can claim.

Won the Adonis last season before hitting the frame in an Aintree Grade 1 and finishing 8l behind Lossiemouth at Punchestown; improved form has come on decent ground and has to give a decent chunk of weight to his rivals back down in class.

Has run seven times over hurdles, winning only once (a maiden at Gowran in September) but he easily finished 15l ahead that day and took third of six in a Grade 3 at Fairyhouse (2m, soft) two months ago on latest outing; his jumping is still not that great but this return to the forecast better ground may suit and he's an each-way player on form.

Auteuil winner who was making his debut for Willie Mullins when well held in a Grade 1 at the Dublin Racing Festival (behind Tekao) and he found plenty on that form to be fourth in the Triumph; a reproduction of that effort will see him in the mix and there's no doubt more to come from him.

Won well at Auteuil (2m2f, very soft) in September on debut; just 8-1 for stable debut in Grade 1 at Leopardstown (2m, yielding) six weeks ago and should have come on since but he was readily left behind by four rivals from the home turn/ and ended up 21l behind winner Gala Marceau.
