Devils Bride could have the class to concede weight all round but on ground that will be easier than ideal his task is a tough one. Stellar Notion would be dangerous if putting his best foot forward and Rightville Boy ran surprisingly well in a hot handicap last time, but last year's winner KYLECRUE looks handicapped to go well again despite being a shade out of the weights.[Alistair Whitehouse-Jones]

Excellent strike-rate (10-18, including 7-12 chasing); all good since returning this year and followed his fourth in the Galway Plate with a comfortable victory at the same venue four days later, earning today's 9lb higher mark; jockey's claim takes care of most of that but ideally wants good ground.

Not ideal being 5lb out of the weights but in form after winning twice within a week at Tramore, jumping well out in front over 2m and then surviving one almighty early blunder before coming through to win well over 2m6f; effectively 13lb higher this time, but wouldn't dismiss.

Stayed on well to register his second win over fences over 2m1f at Limerick in April and even better in defeat returning from a break at Killarney three weeks ago (2m4f, soft), beating all bar class act Ballycasey; strong contender on that form.

Highly promising in the winter of 2014 when winning two novice handicaps (2m and an extended 2m4f) in the UK for Tom George; disappointed afterwards but was impressive on debut for this yard over 2m3f here on June return, making all to beat seven rivals off 5lb lower; blew out at Killarney though after more than a month off and has become a hard horse to predict.

Kept busy since winning this off 6lb lower mark 12 months ago but looked on good terms with himself when dictating throughout in a Sligo handicap hurdle last month, winning that for the second successive year; three-time winner in this discipline who won't mind the easing ground.

Progressing nicely over fences and not impossibly treated for this first crack at a handicap judged on latest third in 2m4f novice event at Killarney; over the right trip here but ground might turn soft enough for him.

Competitive off this sort of mark over hurdles but his places over fences have been pretty remote behind the winners and looks held by Akito unless he can find more.

Handicap hurdle win came off much lower mark and over fences not quite reached the same figure as when making a winning start at Clonmel last October, though has been highly tried; this her first handicap in this scene but latest hurdle run is worrying.
