411-7OR: D
1/4

Dual winner on the Flat and off the mark at the second attempt over hurdles when justifying odds-on favouritism at Fairyhouse (2m, soft) earlier this month. Likely to prove hard to beat today.

Beaten 22L on both hurdling outings so far including on good-to-yielding at Thurles last month. Has finished a close second on the Flat since but more needed if he's to take this.

Unraced gelded son of Lord Shanakill and a half-brother to a number of including the yards classy hurdler Jer's Girl. Worth a check in the market on racecourse debut.

411-0OR:

Winner over 7f at Ayr (good) back in June but disappointing in the main since. Made a fair start to hurdling when 12L fourth at Down Royal (soft) a fortnight ago but others make more appeal.

411-0OR: D
7/1

Winner of a maiden hurdle at Down Royal (yielding) in September and placed over hurdles since. Held on the Flat latest but an interesting runner with a leading jockey in the saddle once more.

411-0OR:
14/1

Ran well when finishing fourth over 7f at Naas (good) on sole start as a two-year-old for Aidan O'Brien. Unraced since and making his hurdling debut having joined another leading yard.

410-7OR:
14/1

Winner on heavy as a two-year-old but well beaten on only start this year and fitted with a tongue tie for today's hurdling debut. Market support would be interesting.

Betting

Forecast

Mitchouka (1/4), Minnie Dahill (7/1), Signifiant (8/1), Famous Milly (14/1), North Carolina (14/1), Cosy Club (25/1), A Place Apart (33/1), Go Guarantor (40/1), Callthebarman (50/1), Havelock (50/1), Erquy (100/1)

Verdict

MITCHOUKA can follow up his recent victory at Down Royal by following up in this opening juvenile hurdle. The selection impressed with the ease of his victory on that occasion and can take this before going on to better things. North Carolina represents a leading stable today and having ran well on his sole start at two he can claim second on his first outing in well over a year while previous hurdles winner Minnie Dahill can finish third.
  1. Mitchouka
  2. North Carolina
  3. Minnie Dahill
