511-12OR:
33/1

63-rated Flat handicapper beaten 14L on maiden hurdle debut finishing eighth of 20 in a Down Royal contest earlier this month on stable debut. Tough ask.

Runner-up in both maiden hurdle starts for influential connections and although beaten favourite on that start looks the one to beat here.

Lightly raced and has clearly had his training problems and faces a tough task on return to the track here.

Goldmark gelding out of a Ashkalani mare related to Golden Cross and Alvarado but faces a stiff task here on debut.

Brian Boru gelding out of a Rudimentary mare related to game sorts Fox Appeal, Sub Lieutenant and Jet Master. Hard to fancy on debut.

2/1

Beaten favourite last time out and looks set to compete for favouritism with Last Minute Man. Improving sort sure to go well for yard still bang in form.

Milan gelding, cost €23,000 back in 2014. Half-brother to useful hurdler Corbally Ghost. Well beaten and never nearer on maiden hurdle debut at Navan in March and faces a tough assignment here.

511-4OR:

Detached from the field and subsequently tailed-off on debut and subsequently beaten 70L on two Limerick starts in December. Easily dismissed.

511-4OR:

Point-to-point winner but was well beaten in fifth on his only start in a bumper at Limerick over Christmas before an improved effort at Kilbeggan last month. Will need to improve again in this company.

511-4OR:

Will need to show plenty of improvement on two below-par bumper efforts at Punchestown towards the end of the year. Best watched on hurdling debut.

Last RunWatch last race

911-4OR:

Has failed to finish three of his last four starts and first-time cheekpieces are doubtful to bring about the required improvement here.

511-4OR:

Scorpion gelding whose dam ran twice in bumpers and a half-sister to useful hurdler/chaser Publican. Beaten 121L on debut in a Punchestown bumper and easily passed over here.

511-4OR:

Had shown relatively very little on the Flat for Francis Flood before being well beaten 50L adrift of the winner in a Killarney maiden hurdle earlier this month. Unlikely to play a role here.

410-13OR:
5/1

Interesting Nathaniel gelding out of an unraced dam who was a half-sister to high-class 1m winner Darjina. Second of 12 on eye-catching debut in a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle last month. Expected to improve here and place claims.

Kayf Tar gelding out of a Supreme Leader mare related to national hunt stalwarts Blaklion, Thistlecrack and Special Tiara. Looks a long-term prospect.

Betting

Forecast

Giant Spirit (2/1), Last Minute Man (11/4), Amschel (5/1), Plan Of Attack (7/1), Punches Cross (10/1), The Long Mile (14/1), Dix De Der (14/1), Lord In Red (14/1), Madison To Monroe (16/1), Smitty Bacall (20/1), Redwood Castle (20/1), All For Nothing (33/1), Scorpion Knight (50/1), Fethard Flyer (50/1), Holy Moses (50/1), Sheldon Cooper (66/1), Hyman Roth (66/1), Class Pa (100/1)

Verdict

A battle-royal may ensue between the top two stable here with preference for the Paul and Clare Rooney-owned LAST MINUTE MAN who can build on his two runner-up spots recently while the Willie Mullins-trained Giant Spirit will provide stiff opposition being an improving sort who is sure to go well for yard still bang in form. The interesting and possible improver Amshchel and the Henry De Bromhead-trained Plan Of Attack are deserving of consideration for the places.
  1. Last Minute Man
  2. Giant Spirit
  3. Amschel
