J: Davy Russell

Form: 1415-0
Age: 5
Weight: 11-12
His trainer has won the last two runnings of this race and looks for the hat-trick with this five-year-old who has scored twice over obstacles but found the Galway Hurdle too much when a forty-seven length seventeenth. Not his form that day and far better than that looked.
Never got competitive in the Galway Hurdle but is better than that and could bounce back

Form: 0-3014
Age: 7
Weight: 11-5
Raced over further so far this season with a fourth over two and three-quarter miles at Killarney last month, won his maiden over two miles so plenty of speed if needed and an interesting alternative.
Back to form to win a Bellewstown handicap two starts ago, if jumping holds up can go well

The Plan Man
J: A E Lynch
T: A J Martin
Form: P2/38-
Age: 8
Weight: 11-5
Not seen over hurdles since last July but active on the flat and no fitness concerns. A decent fifth at Down Royal last month and a winner over hurdles at Cork and Listowel back in 2014, ultra-shrewd stable.
Hasn't been in great form on the Flat recently and needs to rediscover his best

Time For Mabel
J: Barry Geraghty
T: E J O'Grady
Form: /430-0
Age: 7
Weight: 11-3
Three wins over hurdles but twenty-five losing starts including on the flat since his last victory and last of twelve at Kilbeggan in June over this trip. Rated two pounds lower but has to do more.
3-16 over hurdles but badly beaten and eased last time, needs to put his best foot forward
5
Political Policy
J: Ger Fox
T: Gavin Cromwell
Form: 3-11
Age: 7
Weight: 11-2
Unbeaten this season with victories here at Bellewstown and then here over a furlong shorter. Ran on well that day but beaten on the flat since and needs to build on past efforts in this hotter company.
Won a conditions hurdle here over slightly shorter last time, this is more competitive
6
Eight Till Late
J: Mark Walsh
T: Francis Casey
Form: 30P-63
Age: 10
Weight: 11-0
In solid form on the flat lately with a win at Leopardstown and numerous places, but not seen over hurdles since November and better known over fences since. Interesting if transferring flat improvement to hurdles.
Decent chase run in May on his last NH start and in good form on the flat recently

Go Another One
J: Donal McInerney
T: John C McConnell
Form: 234-21
Age: 6
Weight: 11-0
Lightly raced over hurdles with six starts, winning his maiden last time out art Perth by nine lengths at odds on. Upped in class here but sitting on bottom weight and may have more to offer.
Easily landed the odds at Perth last time, drop in trip should suit but needs to step-up
