C&D winner but has clearly had his problems having recently being missing seven months before two lacklustre runs over timber and on the Flat at Dundalk on the AW. Out of form and hard to fancy.

Won on two starts in May and June of last year before losing his way somewhat recently culminating in a heavy defeat at Punchestown last month. Plenty to find here.

Won a Novice hurdle at the Galway festival on seasonal debut in August last year but form somewhat tailed-off towards the end of the year. Significant jockey choice but may struggle here.

Distance winner in a Punchestown handicap hurdle last month on yielding to soft ground beating 23 rivals in a career best performance. Another bold show looks likely.

Distance winner of a Sligo maiden hurdle in July last year. Well beaten and never nearer in his second handicap hurdle start finishing 22nd of 28 beaten 48L. Worth a market check on return.

Beaten a nose on handicap debut at Navan in March before a disappointing run at Punchestown last month. Usually runs his race so not easily discounted.

Came good at Navan in March but had thrown away good opportunities before that, and isn't one to trust implicitly. 12th of 24 in a Punchestown handicap hurdle last month beaten 20L.

Another of five runners for powerful owner who has won one of his his four hurdle starts and could be on a handy mark on handicap debut. Worth a market check.

Running in Grade 2 chases at the end of the year and showed a hint of promise when finishing second of 25 beaten 2½L behind Park Paddocks in a Punchestown handicap hurdle last month. One for the shortlist here.

Yet to win in eight hurdles starts, held last season when going handicapping at Naas and Leopardstown before 17L defeat at Punchestown last month. Appears to need some relief from the handicapper.

First Reserve: Filly won a maiden at Thurles in March on fourth start for this yard. Pulled up on handicap debut at Cork before never nearer fifth of 25 at Punchestown last month. Gives the impression there is more to come.

Forecast

Neverushacon (4/1), True Self (9/2), Scheu Time (6/1), Dis Donc (7/1), Twobeelucky (7/1), Bargy Lady (8/1), The Granson (8/1), Lareena (10/1), Nessun Dorma (10/1), Prospectus (10/1), Ministerforsport (10/1), Boherbuoy (11/1), Housesofparliament (14/1), Jack Dillinger (16/1), Gran Geste (16/1), Bhutan (20/1), All's Quiet (25/1), Pyromaniac (33/1), Rock De Baune (40/1)

Verdict

Competitive handicap hurdle where the Willie Mullins-trained TRUE SELF can continue his improvement following clear win over 23 rivals in a Punchestown handicap hurdle last month. Raised 8lb for the win but evidently had plenty in hand. The Jessica Harrington-trained Neverushacon is unreliable but is talented enough to repeat his fine run at Punchestown last month to battle for the minor honours with the consistent Ministerofsport.
