511-11OR:
20/1

Failed to build on promising bumper third on debut at Kilbeggan when making no impression before weakening on hurdling debut in a Fairyhouse maiden last month. Possibilities of coming on for the run.

511-11OR:
8/1

One pace on debut in a Gowran Park maiden hurdle last month when finishing sixth of 20 beaten 39L. Could well be interesting on a step up in trip.

611-10OR: 114

Generally consistent with his finishing positions including in three maiden hurdles but manner and distance of defeats a major concern from a betting point of view.

611-10OR: 102
10/1

Beaten a total of 41L on his last two maiden hurdle starts at Limerick and last month at Clonmel despite his promising finishing positions. Will need to improve to figure here in first-time tongue-tie.

511-9OR:
10/11

Beneficial gelding who has been well beaten in two maiden hurdle starts at Punchestown and Leopardstown. May appreciate drop in trip, but unlikely.

Last RunWatch last race
6
50/1

Well beaten and no impression on two career starts in a Punchestown bumper and on hurdling debut at Cork in November. Could need the run on return to the track.

611-8OR: 102
12/1

The amount of racing the gelding has been having looked to have taken its toll last time out when well beaten 104L in a Thurles handicap hurdle last month. Hard to fancy in current form.

Last RunWatch last race

711-8OR:
25/1

Has shown relatively little in three career bumper starts including a 144L defeat last time out at Limerick in December. Looks a tall order on hurdling debut.

511-7OR: 102
14/1

Without a win in six maiden hurdles since last February including two below-par runs last month. Needs to show a chunk of improvement to play a role in this contest.

Last RunWatch last race

100/1

Beaten over 100L on his last two starts at Fairyhouse and Navan last month when starting at odds of 66/1 and 100/1. Tough task ahead and others preferred.

Last RunWatch last race

511-7OR:
50/1

Flickers of promise on his bumper debut at Ballinrobe in May but finished last of five beaten 71L on track return in December at Leopardstown over 2m. May struggle on hurdling debut.

611-3OR: 99
33/1

Seven race maiden and has produced a number of gloomy displays in six maiden hurdles since debut and others preferred.

33/1

Point-to-point second of 11 beaten ½L in December. Related to the likes of Imperial Commander and Tidal Bay but best watched on hurdling debut.

Daughter of Stowaway out of a Charnwood Forest mare related to Outlander, Hidden Cyclone and recent impressive Leopardstown bumper winner Blackbow.

Betting

Forecast

Best Behavior (10/11), Allardyce (4/1), Monatomic (8/1), Western Ruler (10/1), Cluan Dara (12/1), Boherard Boy (14/1), Arch Stanton (20/1), Play The Dane (25/1), Ilsnepasserontpas (33/1), Famous Day (33/1), Itscatrionaschoice (50/1), Reach Up (50/1), Gliondar Mo Chroi (50/1), Fr Gilligansvoyge (100/1)

Verdict

Allardyce usually races up with the pace and could possibly be vying for the early lead with Reach Up and the Mouse Morris-trained Western Ruler. The Gordon Elliott-trained MONATOMIC is expected to improve on his debut run at Gowran Park last month when finishing sixth of 20 on heavy ground. Allardyce and Best Behavior are the best of the rest.
