A cracking contest in which plenty have excellent chances. However, this could come down to to Andratx and whether he has enough ability to continue this monumental rise through the handicap, as he is proven over this C&D and is in flying form as was shown at Galway last week on the Flat. He may now have reached his ceiling though and there is no Le Richebourg for TIMI ROLI to contend with, so he gets the nod to win his second hurdle for the all-conquering Mullins team. Time For Mabel and Petuna have shown good form on the Flat lately. [Mark Boylan]

Extremely consistent and was able to put it all together to score impressively at Tipperary two starts ago in good style, even though didn't have any world beaters in behind, with none of the 14 horses that have run since from that managing to hit the frame; however, ran well in defeat next time to classy sort Le Richebourg at Killarney; bold bid expected.

Had never been sent off shorter than 20-1 before his last four starts and he has won each of them; scored over C&D in March before a Ballinrobe success led him back to here to complete a hurdles hat-trick; got in as reserve at Galway when winning handsomely, exploiting Flat mark of 60; now 32lb higher than initial win (under 3lb conditional as well) but in great heart.

C&D winner appears to relish good ground, with his three wins coming on sound surfaces, which could perhaps be an excuse for his underwhelming display in a competitive Galway handicap last week (2m7f); big shout.

In fine form on the Flat, running a cracker to only be beaten 1/2l in the Amateur Derby at the Curragh a little over two weeks ago; 13l behind Galway Hurdle runner-up Swamp Fox at Killarney on most recent hurdles outing and these are calmer waters, despite giving weight away; only 1lb above last winning mark and tries his longest trip to date (previously 2m1f).

Well-supported on the AW two starts ago when a little underwhelming and beaten 23l latest by Swamp Fox at Killarney; dropped 1lb since then, and showed at Ballinrobe earlier this season he has the ability to be involved in a contest such as this, but must up his game now.

Smart on his day, winning competitive Listowel handicap in 2014 before finishing third a month later in WKD Hurdle (Grade 2) at Down Royal; off for 658 days before two quiet runs back recently, one on Flat and one over hurdles; first-time tongue tie on and market check advised for C&D winner.

Never been in better form than of late, and as a result, now must contend with a career-high mark; won off 10lb lower at Tipperary before touched off at Kilbeggan by 4yo Lachares, since had a spin on the Flat at Leopardstown on Thursday night when decent third; going in the right direction.
