Won twice in this category in 2022 and emerged as a serious force last season after two point-to-point wins; second in the St James Place at Cheltenham; bounced back from a fall at Aintree (Becher's) to beat Vaucelet in Punchestown championship event; looked in fine shape at Down Royal at Christmas, beating Ferns Lock who has since hacked up at Thurles.

Bidding to win this event for the fifth year in a row; won the 2020 St James's Place at Cheltenham after being second in the race twice; did not have to be at best when winning here a year ago; let down by his jumping at Cheltenham and Punchestown; more like his old self when beating the smart Vaucelet at Downpatrick in May; tough task against race-fit rivals.

A leading hunter chaser for the last few seasons, winning at the Cheltenham festival last year having twice been runner-up there, and beating Vaucelet by just over a length at Punchestown; didn't really find his best form last season, a narrow victory over Le Malin at Naas his only success in five starts, and jumping let him down when failing to complete at Cheltenham and Punchestown; blinkers tried in those two races dispensed with and he's back in cheekpieces here.

Useful hurdler who has taken to fences well, would have been two from four starts but for being demoted to second at Naas in January behind Thedevilscoachman; pulled up in Brown Advisory at Cheltenham and failed to land a blow when well-supported in 3m handicap chase at Punchestown last month, finishing ninth beaten 19½l; unchanged mark here and big shout if he can bounce back as trip looks like it will suit.

Third in Topham last year; well held in points this winter and no match for Billaway at Naas in February; jumped poorly and was making little impression when falling at the last behind Ferns Lock in the Tetratema at Gowran; made a surprise return to form beating Billaway at Fairyhouse; not guaranteed to reproduce that performance.

Grade 1 winner as a novice hurdler and novice chaser; gained the most recent of five chase wins at the 2021 Galway festival; mostly well below his best last season though ended the campaign with a respectable fifth in the Topham; showed enthusiasm when beating younger rival Jay Bee Why at Tyrella a fortnight ago.

Grade 1-winning novice but without a win since Galway festival success in 2021; not the force of old but his mark reflects that and his recent 4l third (Coeur Sublime second) in a 2m Naas Grade 3 was a step back in the right direction.

Comes from a good staying family and has repaid the patience of connections; beaten favourite on only starts in 2022 but is now unbeaten in three starts in points since December; claimed a notable scalp when beating Winged Leader (2022 Cheltenham runner-up to Billaway) at Dromahane; won readily at Aghabullogue; should be ready for step up in class.
