Freedom To Dream is definitely on the up, but he's had only the four career starts, after a debut in 2019. Could he be a tad fragile, or is he just a horse who's been patiently handled - who knows.

He has shown a good level of form though, he was second to Eric Bloodaxe last time out in a Grade 2 over 2m7 on heavy ground, whilst travelling nicely to 2 out, trading quite short on the in-running markets, ultimately he was unable to sustain his promising effort.

Maybe in need of the run that day but definitely could improve again. On all known form he needs to improve a good bit however.

Stamina won't be an issue here as he proved last time by winning a Grade 2 over 2m7f on heavy ground beating Freedom To Dream by 7L.

He isn't the best hurdler by any means and he's prone to a few mistakes but clearly has lots of ability.

He's been held in high regard by connections for a good while now and has largely been campaigned in graded races - often coming up just short of the top level.

The gelding seems to have matured as a horse and he's definitely going the right way.

Should be bang there at the death.

This son of Beat Hollow is five out of six in his career to date. He won his P2P, then secured for a good bit of cash, and sent to Gordon Elliott.

He won his two bumpers and made a very good start to life as a hurdler. His level of form has been solid and he just keeps winning, he's not a flash horse and to my eye looked as if he always wanted a trip.

He has won at this trip, but subsequently stepped back down to 2 and a half miles. He was third to Ginto, and Grand Jury last time out in a good race (over a shorter distance), of which he was ante post favourite for.

He's held in the highest regard by connections and they would be confident he can win this with a view to the Cheltenham Festival next month. The one to beat upped in trip.

Days: 34

Grand Jury is a nice stamp of a horse, who seems to be improving with each run. Last time out he was second to ante post Albert Bartlett favourite in Ginto.

The fundamental form of the race views well but you can also upgrade the run, Henry De Bromhead was badly out of form at the time and some of his well fancied horses were getting stuffed.

Grand Jury ran very well considering he was up against a very smart horse and the aforementioned stable form would have been against him.

I'm sure he entered a lot of people's trackers that day and he's a definite each way player here.

A Flemensfirth gelding trained by Willie Mullins, what's not to like? Well, he does have a few kinks. He was beaten on hurdles debut when long odds on.

He jumped a tad left at a few of his hurdles and made a few mistakes and was ultimately held.

He did put his promise together last time out winning a Naas maiden hurdle impressively, travelling well throughout.

It's again hard to know how good he is but he's in top hands and is sure to improve.

The gelding will need to improve significantly to get involved here though but that's not totally out of the question. Hard to gauge his real ability - could be anything.

Whatdeawant was second favourite for the Lawlor's Of Naas (Grade 1) where Ginto took the prize. He was ultimately well beat into 5th with Hollow Games and Grand Jury ahead of him that day.

He has good form in the book but will need to put his best foot forward here to win. On both his hurdles starts so far it has looked like he wanted a trip, he's upped in trip here for connections that won this race last year with a similar type of horse.

He will be well found in the betting but I suspect he might just come up short on the day to better rivals at this stage in his career.

For me, he's one to watch with a view to the future, but it's not totally out of the question he could just be better

He's hard to asses at this stage. Definite player, might not be up to this yet?

Another nice type for Willie Mullins - Bronn is unbeaten to date. He took a bumper on his first start with the form of that looking solid enough, then he made his hurdles debut around a month ago.

He raced over 2m on soft ground that day, and the front three pulled clear of the rest of the field, and Bronn showed likeable battling qualities to get his head in front - looking like he would appreciate a step up in trip.

He's difficult enough to assess and very much falls into the "could be anything" category, but he would have to be well above average to take this on only his second start markedly up in trip.

Chance.

N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 11-10
OR: N/A
Days: 19

Won a 3m maiden hurdle over 3m on soft ground last time out, so it's clear he has bags of stamina. Prior to that he split Journey With Me (1st) and Kilcruit (3rd) in a maiden hurdle that's working out quite well and the front 3 pulled well clear.

That was his only defeat to date and with stamina assured you can expect a good run from this son of Shantou.

He will need to improve again to figure in the finish but his profile is ideal for a race of this nature, at what's likely to be a nice enough each way price, you'll get a good run for your money.
