Poor low-grade 46-rated handicapper on the Flat well beaten on all seven career starts including on hurdling debut at Fairyhouse earlier this month beaten 58L. Others make more appeal.

Betting

Forecast

Kuraka (8/11), State Of The Art (8/1), Castle Howard (8/1), Randalls Ur Poet (9/1), Magen's Moon (14/1), Mastermind (20/1), Acclamatio (25/1), Fullmoon In Paris (33/1), Ingleby Mackenzie (33/1), Sil Ver Klass (33/1), Sonic Wind (33/1), Buffalo Blues (33/1), Go Guarantor (40/1), Callthebarman (40/1), Noble Intention (50/1), D K Travel (50/1), Ali's Girl (66/1), Joly Maker (66/1), Agatha Rose (100/1), Erquy (100/1)

Verdict

The likes of Ingleby Mackenzie and Sonic Wind could take the field along here ensure a truly run contest. Fifth on maiden hurdle debut, Castle Howard and the improving Randalls Ur Poet can go well here but will find it difficult to get near the fancied KURAKA here.
