As a 142-rated second-season novice Jett should really be a good thing for a races at this level, but the element of doubt surrounding his overall profile suggests he is not at all certain to cope with MONTALBANO, who beat a talented stablemate in a conditions hurdle at the Punchestown festival. Balbir Du Mathan is 19lb behind Jett on official figures but comes into the reckoning following Sunday's winning effort over hurdles at Navan. [Alan Sweetman]

Won on the Flat in France and looked a good recruit in winning two of his four hurdle starts last season; kicked off with promising Leopardstown success; two Grade 2 outings hinted at limitations but redeemed himself with defeat of stablemate Riven Light at Punchestown; runner-up has advertised the form on the Flat with big Galway handicap win and Listed success at Listowel

Experienced chaser who capitalised on his lower hurdles mark at Navan last Sunday on his first run for this stable, a good front-running effort in first-time cheekpieces; placed in four of his nine starts over fences; capable of getting into the money here.

Showed some ability over hurdles last season, notably when 3l third in a 2m3f maiden at Clonmel in February; soundly beaten in a 2m maiden at the same venue four weeks ago; up against it here on chasing debut.
