Thrown in at the deep end on handicap debut eventually pulled up in the Grade 3 Coral Cup at the Cheltenham festival. Better than that performance and this is a great deal easier.

Rewarded for some consistent efforts in bumpers with a victory at Wexford in October over 2m. Failed to spark in three career maiden hurdle starts since and needs to improve dramatically here.

Modest form in point-to-points but ran okay on Rules debut at Fairyhouse in a maiden hurdle before staying on well to land a Kilbeggan bumper over similar distance last month. Place claims.

Won a minor bumper at Cork on debut but well beaten at Fairyhouse and Punchestown last month finishing last of nine runners. Looks opposable.

Went from maiden hurdles to three heavy defeats in bumpers between January and last month. Notable jockey booking.

Put a Punchestown disapointment behind him when finishing second of seven beaten ¾L in January over 2m5f on heavy ground. Could be capable of having his say.

Pulled up on both career point-to-point starts and first time tongue-tie unlikely to bring about the required improvement needed here.

Always in behind and never a factor on dismal bumper performance beaten 78L at Ballinrobe earlier this month. Improvement needed.

Best effort to date when runner-up in a 2m3f maiden hurdle at Naas in February, and better than bare result at Tramore last time. Others preferred.

15-race maiden and and nothing to shout about in two dismal starts over the larger obstacles and in a handicap hurdle in March. Good form in the Autumn appears a distance memory.

Black Sam Bellamy gelding out of a mare who finished fourth in a Group 3 contest on the Flat. Disappointing in sole bumper start in December beaten 61L. Hard to see him making any significant impact.

Has looked over-whelmed in a couple of maiden hurdles at Navan the latest of which came in March finishing 172L behind the winner.

Not a lot to shout about in two bumpers and a disastrous maiden hurdle debut at Cork earlier this month. Needs to jump more fluently to play a role here.

Central Park mare out of a Portrait Gallery related to Grade 2 West Yorkshire hurdle winner Colin's Sister. Will possibly need the experience of the first run.

Unraced daughter of Oscar and a half-sister to dual winner Wings Like Arion. Worth a check in the market on racecourse debut.

Betting

Forecast

As You Were (11/8), Eamon High (5/2), School Boy Hours (5/2), Castlebrook (5/1), Macgiloney (8/1), Imperial Way (8/1), Squadron Commander (10/1), Bennaway (20/1), Iusetaluvheronce (20/1), Itscatrionaschoice (33/1), Murphys Oscar (33/1), Jack Fiasco (33/1), Caveat Emptor (33/1), Inchavour (40/1), Sullane Hill (66/1), I Keano (66/1), Lacouzette (66/1), Onthewayback (100/1)

Verdict

The gallant Joseph Mangan-trained CASTLEBROOK can lead the way here and attempt to make-all in this competitive 18-runner contest. The five-year-old in the colours of the Potts family can have many of these in trouble some way out. As You Were can put a disappointing display at Cheltenham behind him and Iusetaluvheronce, who goes well here can hit the frame.
