Former Enda Bolger-trained gelding; has done well for Sam Curling, notching four wins and four seconds from his last eight starts in points; only fifth in the Ladies' Cup here on Tuesday, but has never shone over the banks here; could be a different proposition if the race has not left its mark; goes well for Toni Quail.

Former Enda Bolger-trained gelding; good overall credentials, save for the fact that he was an unplaced favourite in this race in 2022 and was beaten 20l in fourth behind Three By Two last year; has done well for Sam Curling, notching four wins and four seconds from his last eight starts in points; beat Transparent and Three By Two over the banks at Lingstown.

Four-time winner in points between 2019 and 2022; missed all of last year; made mistakes on return in race won by Private Ryan here in February; 3-1 second favourite then, underlining that he should be taken seriously on his old form; top rider aboard.

Placed over hurdles behind the useful The Folkes Tiara in a maiden at Downpatrick last summer; that form would give him a big chance but he has disappointed in points; held in third when falling at the last in race won by Private Ryan at this venue, pulled up at Tattersalls last Sunday.
