911-8OR: 114D
12/1

Distance winner who improved 10lb last season making all the right noises in the process over hurdles. Last of nine in October in a run that the Gold Well gelding may have needed.

711-5OR: 111D
7/2

Hard-to-win-with hurdler who showed a willing attitude to land a minor novice chase at Tramore last month, before unseating on latest chase start when in contention at Naas earlier this month. Not to be discounted.

611-3OR: 109D
4/1

One from seven over the larger obstacles the win coming in a Sligo beginners chase beating seven rivals by 2½L before a second-rate performance last time out at Galway. Needs to improve on last start.

811-3OR: 109D
9/1

Failed to build on Sligo second with heavy defeats at Galway and Gowran Park before a 17L reversal at Thurles earlier in the month. Others preferred.

511-3OR: 109BFD
9/2

Beaten favourite when finishing second of 10 at Thurles earlier this month when 11L behind Eiri Na Casca over 2m2f. Improving with every run and worth a market check nere.

811-2OR: 108D
10/1

Useful hurdler at best but clearly had his problems, with gaps in his CV, and didn't shown enough in a chase at Sligo in the summer before a heavy defeat last time out at Naas. Looks a tall order.

Last RunWatch last race

710-10OR: 102
10/3

Not much to shout about in three second-rate chase performances including a 14L defeat on handicap debut earlier this month at Cork. Others hold stronger profiles.

Last RunWatch last race

1110-8OR: 100D
33/1

Now 11-year-old and without a win in almost two years, was out of form over the larger obstacles in March before another below par performance at Cork this month. Looks vulnerable in this company.

Betting

Forecast

Slemish (10/3), Persian Wind (7/2), Dont Kick Nor Bite (4/1), Little Stevie (9/2), Effernock Lad (9/1), Shantou Ed (10/1), Concordin (12/1), Rolling Rocket (33/1)

Verdict

Possible lone speed here from PERSIAN WIND in the early stages of this 2m contest and could have a couple of his opponents in trouble some way out. The seven-year-old was still in contention when unseating last time out when looking to follow up on a win at Tramore last month. Little Stevie and Don't Kick Nor Bite can land the minor honours.
  1. Persian Wind
  2. Little Stevie
  3. Dont Kick Nor Bite
