Timeform on Kemboy

Tout Est Permis - 12:50 Leopardstown

Tout Est Permis was unable to justify strong support on his switch to hurdling at Navan last time, but he shaped well when finishing runner-up to The Jam Man. Tout Est Permis is a smart chaser - he won a Grade 2 last season - and he is able to run off a 28 lb lower hurdles mark. He can cash in under Sean Flanagan, who has won on three of his five rides on the six-year-old.

Canardier - 13:25 Leopardstown

Canardier showed useful form over hurdles last season, running with credit in competitive handicaps at Cheltenham, Aintree and Punchestown, and he looked set to go close on his chasing debut at Navan this month prior to his departure at the second-last. He impressed with how smoothly he moved into contention at Navan and he looks a promising recruit to chasing. He can gain compensation at the chief expense of Allaho, who was placed in Grade 1 novice hurdles at Cheltenham and Punchestown.

Kemboy - 15:10 Leopardstown

Kemboy established himself as the leading staying chaser in training last season, racking up three Grade 1s. He was an impressive winner of the Savills Chase last year, settling matters with a decisive turn of foot, and his change of gear marks him out from other stayers. He has run well fresh before and can assert his dominance on his return.
