611-12OR:
10/1

Hasn't really shown a lot of promise in two starts since returning to the track following a 13-month break and plenty to find in this company.

Record reads 2-32 and he has failed to complete his last three starts over these obstacles. Hard to fancy in current form.

11/2

Promising third of 12 beaten 5¾L in a Punchestown hunter chase last month. A little concern over a 10-year-old still competing in a beginners chase despite first-time cheekpieces.

811-12OR:
6/1

Seventh of 11 beaten 51L at Fairyhouse following a lay-off of 12-months and worth a market check on second start for yard and first run since being gelded.

711-12OR:

Well beaten and tailed off in two maiden hurdle starts in March at Thurles and Limerick before more of the same at Fairyhouse last month. Difficult to access on chasing debut but in the right hands.

611-12OR:

Well beaten in five laboured performances over the summer on the Flat and over timber. Difficult task ahead on chasing and stable debut.

Never a factor when finishing last of seven - eventually disqualified - in a Down Royal beginners chase losing his saddle cloth. Place claims at best.

Not much to shout about for the 18-race maiden and difficult to see where the improvement is going to come from on chasing debut.

Nine-race maiden now switches to chasing following a numbered of laboured starts over timber. Market to reveal expectations on beginners debut.

Mare entering the veteran stages of her career and still a 10-race maiden. Plenty to prove in this contest.

Modest 90-rated handicap hurdler without a win in five career starts and hard to fancy on beginners chase debut.

711-5OR:

Beaten a total of 103L in two career beginner chases tailed off and never a factor at Limerick on both occasions. Needs a big improvement here.

511-3OR:

Poor in her point-to-point career and a modest 95-rated handicap hurdler. Has her third start for the yard here and interesting to see her top handler switching the mare to chases now.

9/1

Won a Cork maiden hurdle in March last year but her form has plummeted since with two consecutive heavy defeats. Looks up against it here.

Betting

Forecast

Ri An Rian (3/1), Festival Opera (11/2), Gunfire Reef (6/1), Whatsinthecorner (7/1), Macca's Stowaway (9/1), Shes Flat Tothemat (9/1), Beginningtogetup (10/1), Rossmore's Pride (12/1), Theatre Run (14/1), Taggle Og (16/1), Lleyton (16/1), Burning Issues (20/1), Precious Gold (20/1), Kayf Thou (20/1), Banking Crisis (25/1)

Verdict

The hint from Gordon Elliott that he is happy to switch MACCAS STOWAWAY to chasing must be taken on her third run for the yard. The five-year-old is out of an Old Vic mare and related to the likes of Outlander and Hidden Cyclone. Whatsinthecorner and Ri An Rian are both worth consideration and can hit the frame here.
