J: Sean O’Keeffe

T: W P Mullins

Runner-up in a maiden hurdle on sole start on heavy; weakened right out of it on his only two appearances over about 3m, including in the Cheltenham Grade 1 novice last March; however, he put 14l between himself and his remaining three rivals (eventually headed by Roi Mage) after leading two out in a 3m2f conditions event on soft at Down Royal four weeks ago; needs better again but is much more interesting after that latest run.

Form & Verdict

Veteran won this race in 2022 and second to Longhouse Poet last year before winning 3m3f cross-country event at Compiegne in November on heavy; never sighted on New Year's Day at Tramore but this more galloping track and conditions more in his favour although this appears a strong renewal and has to concede weight.

T: Patrick Griffin

Took to this challenge expertly last year (good to soft) until six others went away from the second last and he was beaten 14l; won a French cross-country race in November and stuck to his task well behind Adamantly Chosen last month; has seemingly had a better preparation than last year (when he had an injury in late January) and softer ground this time looks a help; has 2lb lower mark too and a good each-way chance.

Pulled up after mistakes at Leopardstown last month, having previously looked progressive in winning Thurles Listed contest and when second in Grade 3 at Tramore; big player here if jumping holds up and he stays this longer trip.

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.

Form & Verdict

Both chase wins have been at 2m including handicap here last season; third in 3m2f Grade 3 Bobbyjo Chase at Fairyhouse last season his standout run, tame enough comeback run at Leopardstown recently suggests he has a lot on his plate here.

His profile is patchy but a case can be made on his best form, which was a cracking third in a Grade 3 at Fairyhouse (3m1f, yielding) last February; faced tough task when respectable 24l fourth of five at Down Royal (3m2f, soft) last month and is not a forlorn hope now back in a handicap.
