The only mare in the race and she looks to have a really tough assignment on her hands as she has not achieved much and does not have the experience of running well in better quality races.

She will be hoping the ground does not get too soft as she prefers it more on the good to soft side.

An unlikely winner and will have to cope with stepping back down in trip again here.

One of two for trainer Noel Meade and Gigginstown are represented by Idas Boy who has serious claims here stepping up in trip.

oes fairly well fresh as he won after a 212 day break at Cork over 2m4f beating Gua Du Large by 14 lengths.He then stepped up in Grade when finishing second at Cork in a Grade 3 contest only a ½ length behind the Willie Mullins trained El Barra.

Has an entry in a Grade 1 Chase at Fairyhouse for December and will relish this step up in trip. Major player who will surely be in the mix and rates a big danger to rivals.

Jockey and trainer won this race last year with Vanillier so will be looking to do the same with this 6 year old son of Camelot.

He has certainly shown his best form this year making it 3-3 when winning over 3m at Down Royal.Ground conditions would not be a concern for this horse as he performs best on softer surfaces.

Stays the trip, but question marks over whether he can step up once more in a better quality race to make it 4-4.

Yard knows how to win the race so hard to totally dismiss Final Orders especially with him being in this current level of form.

A player if being able to progress once more.

Trainer Noel Meade’s second runner in this year’s renewal of the Grade 2 Florida Pearl Novice Chase and another who looks set to run a big race.

He certainly looks the classiest horse in the race going off what he has done in Grade 2 company already.

That win came over hurdles, but he beat some decent horses that day including the likes of Grand Roi, Commander Of Fleet and Ashdale Bob.

Won on his chase debut making a couple of errors a few out, but will come on plenty from that run and may have learned a lot since too.

Could be the one to side with alongside this trainers other runner so two horses that look to have a great chance coming from this yard.

The only grey in the race and he comes here looking likely to go off as the outsider on the day in this 7 runner field.

He has been used to running over 3m and seems to prefer bigger fields so stepping down in trip for this and only the seven runners will be a concern.

One to dismiss and he has not shown much at all even in Grade 3 company on last start so has it all to do here.

Age: 6
Weight: 11-3
OR: N/A
Days: 207

This 6 year old son of Shantou showed a lot of promise at the start of his career winning two bumpers in impressive style.

He has only been victorious once over hurdles, but that was yet another solid display as he won over this course and 3m beating Eye Van by 11 lengths.

His last two runs have come in Grade 1 company and he was unlucky not to win one as he was beaten a couple lengths by the Willie Mullins trained Minella Cocooner at Leopardstown in early February.

Pulled up on latest outing, but a line can be drawn through that and he could well be the one to beat on what will be his seasonal reappearance after a 207 day layoff.

Plenty more to come and remains with a lot of potential seeing he is only 6 years of age.

Amirite has won two races from four career starts so far and those victories came at Kilbeggan and Fairyhouse. His first win came in some style where he beat The Waltzer by a whopping 30 lengths.

Jockey Rachael Blackmore will be looking to make it a hat-trick of wins on this horse and the form looks rock solid so that can only enhance his credentials here.

On his last start, the second and third Secret She Keeps and Barnacullia both went onto win next time out, but this is a step up into what will be Grade 2 company now.

One at a price that represents more value than others so worth being interested in.

Respected on recent form.
