Winner of a Tramore beginners chase in December and has gone on to be a 121-rated chaser. Tough ask still 8lb higher than his last winning mark but looks capable enough in this company.

Has shown some promise in maiden hurdles already, though has proved expensive to follow will need to improve on a disappointing 40L defeat last time out in a Punchestown handicap hurdle when last seen in October. Claims if on a going day.

Better than his bare figures declare and always shaped like handicaps would be more to his liking and is worth a market check here.

Still racing 9lb higher than his last winning mark back in October and could find this a little tough given his struggles on good ground in the past.

Solid and consistent in a couple of starts between October and November last year. Has been plying his trade on the Flat recently and could be of interest on return to handicap hurdling.

Continued her good form following up on her second of 12 at Tramore in December when landing a Limerick handicap hurdle over 2m in March. Up 7lb for her efforts and another bold show looks likely.

Betting

Forecast

Stacks Mountain (3/1), Double Speak (9/2), Big Ben (5/1), Carrigready (6/1), Turasoir (7/1), Princess Mahler (8/1), Loupgarou (9/1), Ardera Cross (12/1), Mr Picotee (16/1)

Verdict

Although Big Ben will have plenty of supporters he has become a little unreliable and it is expected he will lead here in the early stages of the contest here possibly handing advantage to the likes of Double Speak and PRINCESS MAHLER who continued her good form following up on her second of 12 at Tramore in December when landing a Limerick handicap hurdle over 2m in March and can overcome a 7lb hike here.
