High-class hunter when at his best but that hasn't been for some time; second in Punchestown Champion Hunter Chase in 2022 (to Billaway) and 2023 and also found Billaway too good in this race last year; finished upsides his old rival when well held at this year's Punchestown festival; better for that after four months off but hard to be bullish.

Unplaced favourite at Cheltenham last year having previously looked like a rising star in this category; now 0-6 since that disappointment; second to Its On The Line here 12 months ago, also second to Billaway at Downpatrick last May; two odds-on defeats in autumn points campaign; only slight reassurance form well-beaten fifth behind Its On The Line at Aintree.

Three-time winner in points only started under Rules at Easter; won narrowly at Tramore when fitted with first-time headgear and then much better form when fine third to the vastly experienced Early Doors at Killarney (2m7f); scope to improve further but this trip will test her stamina.

One of the best hunter chasers in recent seasons; won at Cheltenham and Punchestown festivals in 2022 and landed this race a year ago when outstaying Vaucelet; ran top hunter Its On The Line close at Naas in February but well behind that rival when fifth at Cheltenham and flat effort at Punchestown last time; probably on the decline at this stage but still a huge player here.

Won this event two years ago, beating Vaucelet; unseated at fourth last season, when the race was won by Its On The Line; made a bright start to the season when narrowly beaten by Its On The Line at Naas (a race he had won in four consecutive years); almost 12l behind Its On The Line at Cheltenham; seems to be past his peak now but remains very capable.

T: W P Mullins

Part of the furniture in this race; after two seconds he finally got his just reward two years ago when doing well to win from an unpromising position, and he was 9-2 last year only to depart mid-race; has taken his usual tried-and-trusted route via a Naas hunter chase, in which last month he was flattered to get very close to collaring Its On The Line who was at it a fair way out at the head of affairs; still, that race usually brings this 12yo on, and this place gets his competitive juices flowing; expect him to be closing in at the finish, as is his way.
