£28,000 purchase on the back of a promising point-to-point win on New Years Eve. Market likely to reveal expectations.

Generally solid form in France before beaten favourite on stable debut when finishing a disappointing fifth of nine 17L behind Ministerforsport. Claims if tidying up his hurdling.

Modest 72-rated handicapper on the Flat for Michael Dods and beaten a total of 237L in two maiden hurdle starts for current yard. Will need to improve to figure.

711-12OR:

Not disgraced in a number of displays in Group company in France for Jean-Pierre Carvalho but well beaten and no impression on stable debut in a Down Royal maiden hurdle last month. Market likely to be the best guide.

611-12OR:

Well beaten and no impression on racecourse debut in a Limerick bumper in December before whipping round at the start on hurdling debut, unseating jockey-Brian Hayes in the process.

Nothing of any note in two maiden hurdle starts at Fairyhouse and Navan last month. Very little to be positive about.

73-rated handicapper on the Flat for Mick Halford beaten 42L on maiden hurdle debut on first start for current yard. Tough ask and others preferred.

Second of 11 in a Tralee point-to-point when last seen in May following two disastrous displays between the flags earlier. Best watched on stable and rules debut.

Well beaten and no impression in two maiden hurdle starts at Ballinrobe and Fairyhouse last month beaten a total of 51L when sent off at 66/1 on both occasions. Others preferred.

Failed to finish in two point-to-point when last seen in 2016 on the point-to-point circuit. Looks a difficult afternoon ahead.

511-11OR:

Disappointed connections on debut in a Punchestown maiden hurdle last month when beaten 41L finishing 13th of 15 over 2m on soft to heavy ground. Needs to improve significantly.

Plenty of promise on debut for powerful yard when finishing second of 20 in a Gowran Park maiden hurdle on heavy ground over 2m behind Scarpeta. Improvement looks likely.

Oscar gelding out of a mare who won three times over hurdles and once in a bumper. Seventh of 15 beaten 26L on maiden hurdle debut and market likely to be best guide.

Solid enough in two of his three point-to-point starts winning on latest start in October. Unlikely to play a part in the finish here.

511-11OR:

Point-to-point winner on good ground in the spring but proved a disappointment when seventh at Wexford in a maiden hurdle on rules debut in October before a 33L defeat last time out and others make more appeal today.

511-11OR:

Beaten 124L when making his debut in a 2m4f maiden hurdle at Punchestown before finishing sixth of 15 beaten 21L in a Punchestown maiden hurdle last month. Others readily preferred.

Half-sister to recent Fairyhouse Grade B winner Nearly Nama'd but well beaten 73L when sent off at 100/1 on debut before another heavy defeat last time out at Clonmel last month.

Has shown relatively little in two bumpers but has shown signs of promise in two point-to-point starts in October. Market should be informative.

Has failed to build on promising bumper debut with two below-par displays. Hard to construct much of a case for her in this contest.

Betting

Forecast

Epicuris (5/4), Cartwright (7/4), Kerosin (14/1), Plouios (14/1), Theatre World (14/1), Cepalo Delafayette (16/1), Steer Clear (20/1), Monstrosity (25/1), It's Only A Number (33/1), Rideonastar (33/1), Napoleon Blue (33/1), Robin On The Hill (50/1), Shantou Sisu (50/1), Around The Block (50/1), Golden Sunset (50/1), Castaliera (66/1), Lady Maram (66/1), Zonta (66/1), Hernandoshideaway (100/1), Kilcross Lad (100/1)

Verdict

EPICURIS is expected to put a disappointing display last time out behind him here. The stable were under a cloud around the time of the six-year-olds debut run and can come on for the experience here. The Gordon Elliott-trained Cartwright, second on stable debut last month and Gavin Cromwells debutante Cepalo Delafayette can hit the frame here.
