Form & Verdict

Drop in trip reported to have brought about the improvement when back to winning ways at Kilbeggan, but poor here since and a modest enough seventh back up in trip in the Midlands National latest; claims on his 'A' game, but hard to predict where and when he will produce that.

Came back to form when winning over 2m3f here but was hit with an 8lb rise and ran poorly since at Ballinrobe, so has to bounce back from that.

Came back to form to win his third race over fences when comfortably scoring over this trip at Kilbeggan; has been hit with an 8lb rise since but his rider is great value for 5lb, so has to be strongly considered.

C&D winner ran another good race here latest (2m1f) albeit a beaten favourite; probably needed that as it was his first run for 281 days and now that bit sharper, every chance he will recoup the losses.

Had a lot on his plate at Aintree; should be more at home here as one of the younger 'veterans' facing the starter and no ground concerns either; generally reliable and afforded much respect.

J: Robert Dunne

T: Ross O’Sullivan

Generally reliable but he was ending a losing run when winning at Killarney (2m1f, yielding to soft) in October; has nothing to fear from the conditions but balance of form suggests he'll be up against it from 2lb out of the weights.

Form & Verdict

Three of his six wins over fences, latest when obliging at Fairyhouse on final start of 2023; disappointing effort on return from a break at Fairyhouse, even more so considering he can go well fresh, but age against him, even in a veterans race.

Made it 0-12 over fences when runner-up at Tipperary latest, but seldom far from the action, although can make mistakes which often costs him; nice opportunity here all the same to run another solid race, but no room for errors.

Last of six at Wexford but not beaten far and that a step up on previous runs over fences, especially with his jumping; more still needed but not a big surprise either if he manages to turn the screw another bit.

Tends to turn up in more extreme tstes of stamina these days, latest when pulling-up in the 'Porterstown' at Fairyhouse; big drop in trip has the potential to catch him out against some of his slightly younger rivals, but a surprise if not thereabouts.

Twice succesful over fences from eighteen starts; 33's on recent course visit when failing to show much and whilst a touch of youth on his side here, he needs to recapture the best of last season's form.
