28/1

Winner of four handicap hurdles but have to go back to August 2016 to find his most recent hurdling success. 7lb lower than last winning mark and goes well in big fields.

Point-to-point winner 18 months ago. Doesn't seem suited by running over two miles on his last two starts and looks unreliable over this trip on return to the track.

Hampered prior to finishing sixth in a maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse on debut before a couple of heavy defeats since. Looks a tall order on form shown.

Well beaten in two starts in handicap company since returning to hurdling this spring and first-time cheekpieces are doubtful to bring the required improvement needed here.

Solid enough in a summer/autumn jumping campaign last year winning on his final start at Limerick in October. Raised 5lb for her win on return but has struggled in big fields in the past.

Well beaten and not a lot to shout about in four maiden hurdles and does look well out of his depth here.

Showed smart form in good ground bumpers in UK but made little impression on hurdles debut albeit a 30 runner race was something of a baptism of fire, before three heavy defeats since.

Has disappointed in a number of desolate performances including finishing last of 12 beaten 112L when last seen in November. Plenty to prove at present.

Sole success in 27 starts came in a juvenile hurdle on heavy ground in December 2015. Nothing of note lately and the gelding is without a win in seven starts over this trip.

Not seen since August on the Flat and is lightly raced over timber being a five race maiden. Eighth of 15 in a poor show in a Tipperary handicap in October 2016. Worth a market check given connections.

Bumper winner over this trip who has been placed twice in seven starts over hurdles. May find a couple quicker than her here.

Distance winner who was a beaten favourite last time out in a Dundalk claiming race on the Flat last month. One from five over hurdles the sole win coming on handicap debut at Wexford last July. A few better treated in this contest.

Promising second of nine in a Downpatrick handicap hurdle in March finishing ¾L adrift of the winner Isodon before disappointing here over 2m earlier this month when beaten 23L. Goes well in fields of this size.

Forecast

Celebrity Status (6/1), Acclamatio (7/1), Tintown Robin (8/1), A Place Apart (9/1), Hearts Are Trumps (10/1), Drakaina (10/1), Nulife (10/1), Comehere Hi (12/1), Smithscorner (12/1), Lockeen Girl (12/1), Tarazani (14/1), Soleglad (14/1), The Mouse Doctor (14/1), Shaw's Cross (16/1), Jazz Ranger (16/1), Joy's Gift (20/1), Clonard Street (22/1), Edna (25/1), Arctic Light (25/1), Coolfighter (28/1), Can't Be Done (33/1)

Verdict

A PLACE APART was a promising second of nine in a Downpatrick handicap hurdle in March finishing ¾L adrift of the winner Isodon before finishing fourth of 14 here earlier this month and can improve for the run in this contest with the gelding showing a liking for big fields. Distance winner Drakaina, Conor O'Dwyer's Celebrity Status and the top weight Coolfighter, who can out-run his odds, can battle for the minor honours.
