Came out best in a good finish to a competitive looking race when an almost unconsidered 20-1 shot at Clonmel over an extended 2m3f latest; 7lb rise to cope with for that, but entitled to come on another notch; ground versatile.

An obvious contender but he's been a beaten favourite on four of his six starts - won once - since joining the champion trainer, which is hardly inspiring; sure to win more races but could be worth avoiding at likely short odds.

Shaped as though she's got more to offer behind an improving hurdler over 3m at Fairyhouse last month; step back in trip shouldn't pose a problem and she has the form in the book to figure in a race like this; market confidence would be an obvious bonus.

Won at Fairyhouse over 2m4f off a mark of 92 in February; largely hit and miss in the interim, with Tipperary 3m fourth the only real positive display since then; not without minor support when disappointing here latest; vulnerable.

Notable connections; maiden hurdle form was quite promising but poor enough in handicaps so far; drop in trip and blinkers may help; worth recalling he was a very expensive 3yo, out of unraced half-sister to high-class Albertas Run.

Struggling a fair way from home on her recent handicap debut at Gowran; overall profile needs some spicing up; all to do.

Still a maiden over hurdles after 14 runs but came back to some kind of form when third to a rapidly improving sort last time; a repeat of that effort will see him involved.

Now 0-15 over hurdles after being pulled-up at Leopardstown last time coming back from a break; just not as good over hurdles as over fences and others preferred.

Ballinaboola 6yo+ maiden point winner in November; eight-length second at Rathcannon on next start before struggling in a beginners' at Tramore latest; this looks tough.
