8/1
Lightly raced mare and well beaten on return to the track following a year off in a Wexford 2n bumper earlier this month. Looks vulnerable in this company.

Slight improvement from four disappointing displays on final start for previous yard when sixth of 16 beaten 7L in a Bellewstown handicap hurdle when last seen in August. Worth a market check on stable debut.

Maiden pointer. Better effort over hurdles when 19¾ lengths fourth of 18 to Moonlight Escape in mares maiden at Cork debut, but well held subsequently.

Failed to complete on debut and well beaten on three occasions subsequently. Hard to construct much of a case for the mare despite first-time cheekpieces.

Not seen since finishing eighth of 10 beaten 17L in a Dundalk maiden on the AW over 1m in February 2017. Five-race maiden hurdler and looks opposable on return.

First time cheekpieces are doubtful to bring the required improvement on return to the track following three dismal maiden hurdle displays since February.

Jeremy mare who has shown precious little in a series of desolate performances during a disappointing summer hurdling campaign. Plenty to prove on first run since September.

Poor form in a series of disappointing starts for connections in five bumper starts across three years. Needs to improve on what she has shown so far in order to take a hand.

First-time hood was unable to bring about the required improvement last time out in December when well beaten here in a handicap hurdle over this trip. Plenty to find here on return.

511-7OR:

Well beaten - 246L - in three starts since December including a 61L defeat last time out at Limerick on hurdling debut. Will need to improve dramatically.

Well beaten and never nearer when last seen in a Fairyhouse maiden hurdle in November. Unlikely to improve in first-time cheekpieces.

Betting

Forecast

Miss Echrad (3/1), Cailean's Angel (10/3), Blondes No More (7/2), Lady Of The Sea (5/1), Chesterfield Queen (6/1), Absentee (8/1), Granny Maura (12/1), Krisdenoel (12/1), Focus Well (12/1), Our Bonus (20/1), Jeremys Hope (33/1), Cock A Doodle Doo (33/1)

Verdict

MISS ECHRAD looks a cut above many of her rivals in this contest and the Brian Boru mare can build on two game starts since March to land the spoils in the opening contest. Possible improver Blondes No More looks the best of the rest while Absentee deserves a second look from the Denis Hogan yard.
