1
711-12OR:
50/1
Modest 129-rated hurdler well beaten in two career beginners chase starts and plenty to prove in this contest looking at exposed form.
Watch last raceLast run
2
611-12OR:
3/1
Highly tried Grade 1 novice hurdler without making his presence felt last year including a heavy defeat in the 2017 Supreme novices at the Cheltenham festival. Yard in fine form and more expected not back over the larger obstacles.

611-12OR:
50/1
Very modest 118-rated hurdler who is related to sturdy chasers Eastlake and Salsify. Yards last 20 runners have been beaten and others preferred in this contest.

711-12OR:
14/1
Improving 129-rated hurdler who struggled on his last start in March following a win at Leopardstown in December. Could go well on chasing debut for powerful owner/trainer combination.

611-12OR:
66/1
Pulled up before four out in a dismal reappearance in a Cork handicap hurdle last month following a break of six months. Market likely to reveal expectations on chasing debut.

711-12OR: D
8/1
Distance winner but without a win in four career chase starts to date though his third of 16 at Thurles in February puts him in the frame here.

611-12OR: C
33/1
Beaten a total of 101L in two career beginner chase starts last month. Looks a tall order on that form here.

711-12OR: D
13/2
Well beaten and never nearer in the Top novices hurdle at the Grand National festival last month beaten 42L when finishing 10th of 13 on his first start since a wind op. Point-to-point winner and worth a market check here.

511-10OR: 108C
50/1
Modest 109-hurdler who was a distant fifth of 14 beaten 27L in a Wexford beginners chase earlier this month. Flat bred unlikely to improve in this company.
Watch last raceLast run
13
511-10OR:
12/1
Possibly flattered to deceive in a number of handicap hurdle starts since November. Market likely to be the best guide to chances on chasing debut.

611-5OR:
5/4
Had been a bit disappointing but took advantage of an easier task to score at Punchestown last month, winning with some authority. Likely to be popular in the market on chasing debut.

Betting

Forecast

Pravalaguna (5/4), Bunk Off Early (3/1), Dr Mikey (5/1), Ornua (13/2), Le Martalin (8/1), Templemore Dream (12/1), Hardback (14/1), Mon Lino (33/1), Cloudybackwest (33/1), Jefferson Davis (50/1), Chatham Street Lad (50/1), Ballyegan Hero (50/1), Golden Sunset (50/1), Hickey's Rock (66/1)

Verdict

The Willie Mullins pair could eventually fight out the finish with preference for the chase-experienced BUNK OFF EARLY who was a beaten favourite when last sighted over the larger obstacles in December. Stablemate Pravalaguna can hit the frame with Dr Mikey deserving of consideration on chasing debut.
  1. Bunk Off Early
  2. Pravalaguna
  3. Dr Mikey
