J: Peter Smithers

Best effort when runner-up in a Navan handicap in September (yielding), not seen since below form on testing ground at same track in November so may need this.

T: Desmond McDonogh

Runner-up in handicaps at Punchestown and this venue during the winter; poor run in between over 2m4f; staying on when falling at the last at this venue on the penultimate start; let down by his jumping here 12 days ago; could reverse form with third-placed Red Striker if avoiding error.

J: Jody McGarvey

Won a Limerick maiden hurdle and a Naas handicap hurdle last season; not seen since mid-division in a Fairyhouse handicap hurdle a year ago; respected if fit enough to do himself justice but unproven over the trip.

Maiden has been runner-up in handicaps at Punchestown and Naas during the winter; poor run in between was over 2m4f; staying on when falling at the last at Naas last time; a good chance he can make amends.

Maiden has been twice runner-up recently, including over C&D last time; poor run in between was over 2m4f; up another 2lb but should be closely involved.
