7/1

Failed to make an impact in five maiden hurdle runs but has shown a bit more for this mark since the switch to handicaps. Still been beaten a fair way mind and whilst this drop back in trip looks a good move, he is vulnerable off top weight.

Hasn't won since August 2015 and is a maiden over hurdles. One or two pieces of her form would give her a squeak in here though and whilst others are more solid, it's hard to completely dismiss her.

Poor in point-to-points and beaten a long way in all starts under rules including in handicaps the last twice. Easily opposed.

Has shown signs of improvement that last twice but is it surprising to see here dropping back in trip here having looked a bit one paced and shaped like a stayer recently. Her only win came here on good ground in a bumper.

Has looked regressive of late having been beaten a very long way on both her starts in January when last seen. Hopes hinge on return to some better ground but needs a large leap of faith to back her until we see more.

Still a maiden and has not looked like being involved in a finish for some time. Seemed to appreciate the longer trip at Clonmel (2m4f, good) last time so slightly surprising to see this drop back in trip here.

Appreciated the move to handicap company when staying on strongly for a close second at Down Royal (2m, good) two weeks ago. Nudged up 3lbs for that effort but that is just about the best piece of recent form on show and likely to be bang there.

A 16-race maiden over these obstacles, often races prominently and can be guilty of doing too much at the head of affairs. Handicapper has given him a chance on this return from a break and starts life for a new yard today so market check needed.

Showed very little in to handicap starts just over a year ago. Cheekpieces are added to the tongue tie but impossible to fancy off this long lay off unless market screams her name.

Unable to get off the mark in either code for Gavin Cromwell, ran out in a point-to-point recently on bow for this trainer. Weakened quickly after making the running at Kilbeggan latest and needs to do more.

Beaten 54L on her recent return over C&D. Handicapper has dropped her 3lbs for that effort but very difficult to make a case for her on that evidence. need to see plenty more.

Much more like it a Clonmel (2m½f, good) when third in a maiden hurdle last week, that would suggest she's on a decent mark and top rider keeps the faith. First-time cheekpieces replace the hood.

Has looked relatively exposed in this sphere. A small glimpse of improvement last time suggesting that a bit further than this is needed now. Tough ask once again.

Very little in the form of positives. Well beaten on recent return here over C&D and needs to do much more to be involved. Positive jockey booking.

Betting

Forecast

I've Got Rhythm (9/2), Lady Of The Sea (9/2), Jennys Grey (11/2), Montauk Flyer (7/1), Ardview Boy (8/1), Grey Atlantic Way (10/1), Shantou Sisu (10/1), Time Is Time (12/1), Emily Square (12/1), Miracle Cure (16/1), Quay Witness (20/1), Masterchippy (25/1), Jimmy's Choice (25/1), Peggy's Acre (40/1), Adelena (50/1)

Verdict

Bryan Cooper keeps the ride on Lady Of The Sea and her recent effort at Clonmel would suggest she’s on a workable mark. Market moves for either Ardview Boy or Montauk Flyer should be noted but we are going to side with I’VE GOT RHYTHM. Conor O’Dwyer’s gelding stayed on strongly for a close second at Down Royal last time and a repeat of that effort may well be good enough to account for these.
