Form & Verdict

Pulled up on his last three chase starts for Willie Mullins in 2022 but has found some form again over timber of late, winning at Fairyhouse off 125 before finishing runner-up in a Listed handicap hurdle at Cork last month from 10lb higher; 2lb lower chase mark helps and Kelly is good value for his 5lb; big player.

Macgiloney

J: Daniel King

T: Denis Gerard Hogan

Better-known as a seven-time hurdles winner; over three years since the second of his two wins over fences; shaped quite well at Wexford on his first run after a winter break but that was a veterans' chase (closely matched with Cavalry Master) and this is more demanding.
