611-12OR:
5/6
Improving 93-rated Flat performer for trainer-Dermot Weld before making a promising stable debut in a Navan maiden hurdle when last seen in September finishing second of 30. Capable of running a big race.

Useful Flat performer for trainer-Richard Hannon winning two of his ten races. Stable still in fine form with a treble at Kilbeggan on Friday. Likely to be a warm order.

Second of eight in an October point-to-point and a £50,000 buy for connections soon after. Should make an interesting recruit in time .

Was initially with Willie Mullins but never raced for that yard before switching to Noel Meade. Was well beaten and weakening when falling on hurdling debut. Capable of improvement in this company.

Last of 15 and 25 in two maiden hurdles before pulling up when tailed off last time out at Clonmel when last seen in February 2017. No realistic chance in this contest.

Beneficial gelding out of a Bob Back mare related to stayers Eastlake and Salsify. Market likely to reveal expectations.

10-race maiden and possibly needed the run on return to the track when finishing sixth of 13 beaten 18L in a Fairyhouse bumper last month.

Three race maiden who has never started at less than 66/1 in his career maiden hurdle starts including a 186L defeat last time out in April.

Marienbard gelding out of a Kings Ride mare. Sire not prolific with his national hunt progeny and looks a long-term prospect following a 33L defeat on debut at Tramore last month.

From the smart family of Limestone Lad. Plenty of promise on hurdling debut at Navan finishing seventh of 21 in March and one for the shortlist.

Has suffered two shuddering defeats in two career starts towards the end of the year beaten 117L in a Navan bumper. Looks opposable.

Has been left toiling in three career maiden hurdle hurdle starts since March and is easily passed over here.

511-4OR:

Looked over-whelmed in five career starts for trainer-Francis Flood and requires a chunk of improvement to play a role on hurdling debut.

Modest in a number of bumpers and struggled on his only hurdle start at Limerick in March 2017 for trainer-William Murphy. Will possibly need the run on return.

611-4OR:

Poor in a number of point-to-point starts and well beaten on sole maiden hurdle start at Limerick last month beaten 79L. Looks up against it here.

Finished behind last hurdle faller at Aintree Scheu Time on Irish debut in a Thurles maiden hurdle in March before beaten favourite at Tramore over 2m last month finishing 20L adrift of the winner. Stable in fine form.

710-11OR:

Has shown flashes of promise in the point-to-point ranks, most notably when winning a 3m event on good ground in April. Well beaten and never a factor in two maiden hurdle starts this year. Others preferred.

Dam half-sister to two dual purpose winners. No impression on leaders when weakening and eventually pulled up before two out on debut over 2m2½f at Clonmel in February. Hard to construct much of a case for her.

Forecast

Edelpour (5/6), Iusetaluvheronce (9/2), Magnium (5/1), Kismet Hardy (8/1), Winter Soldier (9/1), Arahecan (14/1), Bensachuine (14/1), Paris Texas (16/1), Balisko (16/1), Jp Dundee (25/1), Benbulben Blue (50/1), Sticky Situation (66/1), Sheldon Cooper (66/1), Kanturk Bard (66/1), Slieve Coillte (100/1), Fly De Megaudais (100/1), Takemeback (100/1), Mary Fields (100/1), Roccorovermann (100/1), Ballyvaldon Boy (100/1)

Verdict

EDELPOUR was an improving 93-rated Flat performer for trainer-Dermot Weld before making a promising stable debut behind Mengli Khan in a Navan maiden hurdle in September for new connections and can improve enough to land the spoils here. The former Richard Hannon-trained Kismet Hardy, now with the mighty Willie Mullins yard and interesting recruit Arachecan can hit the frame in a race that wont take a lot of winning.
