NEW! A 'WS' icon means the horse has had wind surgery to improve its breathing since its last run.
1
611-12OR:
16/1
£28,000 purchase on the back of a promising point-to-point win on New Years Eve. Market likely to reveal expectations.
2
611-12OR: BF
5/4
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.
3
611-12OR:
100/1
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.
4
711-12OR:
14/1
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.
5
611-12OR:
100/1
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.
6
611-12OR:
25/1
Nothing of any note in two maiden hurdle starts at Fairyhouse and Navan last month. Very little to be positive about.
7
711-12OR:
33/1
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.
8
611-12OR:
50/1
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.
9
611-12OR:
14/1
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.
10
811-12OR:
66/1
Failed to finish in two point-to-point when last seen in 2016 on the point-to-point circuit. Looks a difficult afternoon ahead.
11
511-11OR:
50/1
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.
12
511-11OR: D
7/4
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.
14
511-11OR:
33/1
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.
15
511-11OR:
33/1
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.
16
511-11OR:
14/1
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.
17
511-11OR:
20/1
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.
18
711-5OR:
66/1
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.
19
611-5OR:
50/1
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.
20
511-4OR:
66/1
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.

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.
