With cheek-pieces fitted for the first time and off a nice weight, Apparition makes plenty of appeal in this 2m5f handicap hurdle.
He has some smart flat form to his name and is deserving of his mark of 85 on the level.
He has a nice run at the Punchestown Festival in an equally competitive handicap hurdle, which should stand him in good stead coming here. He’s definitely one to be interested in.
If Koshari can get into a rhythm with his jumping he’s a horse who’s unexposed off a mark of 147.
He was very impressive on heavy ground at Clonmel in June and has also won on yielding ground so ground conditions shouldn’t pose any problems.
He had a future Grade 1 winner in behind at Punchestown at the start of the year, so although he hasn’t had many runs his form is strong.
At a meeting at which his trainer doesn’t do particularly well, Mr Everest has only had the one start for Tony Martin, running a very nice race in a maiden hurdle at Limerick.
He showed a liking for cut in the ground last season and a mark of 77 gives him a real chance in this 2m handicap, being less exposed than most.
Stall 1 is another reason to be positive about his chances.
