The first runner is the versatile Darasso for Joseph O'Brien who has shown he can mix it with the best over both hurdles and fences during his career, but might just find one too good in here.
Kept active all the way through this year He was a winner at Naas in January beating the smart Saint Felicien in a Grade 3 contest and then went to Gowran in a similar event and was second to the progressive Teahupoo.
Kept over hurdles in April he was sent into a Grade 2 at Fairyhouse and got back to winning ways but then took on Honeysuckle and Echoes In Rain in the Grade 1 Punchestown Champion Hurdle and had to settle for third.
The runs might have caught up with him when running in a Grade 3 at June, but then at Galway back over fences he was a superb second to Hewick in the Galway Plate.
The form of that race was franked with the Shark Hanlon trained winner since landing the American Grand National and Darasso was a superb third when last seen over three miles behind Busselton and Recite A Prayer in the Kerry National.
Down to his preferred trip out of handicap company he could give another big run.
