20/1

Not been showing much of late on the flat but is 1/2 over hurdles so a return to this sphere may see him show a bit more. Hood goes on for the first time but will need to take a big step forward to be involved.

7/2

Beaten a long way in his maiden hurdles but sent off as short as 8/1 for handicap debut at Naas back in February. Again well beaten that day. Better effort on the All Weather last time should have blown away cobwebs and top rider back on board.

7/1

Not been seen over hurdles since August last year when being well beaten off this mark. Clearly capable on a going day and fit from the All Weather but easy to look elsewhere for win purposes.

9/1

First real form of note when a staying on fifth (beaten 7L) over C&D last time. That offers some encouragement that there could be a race of this nature in him and top rider on board.

20/1

Longstanding maiden whose best form has come at Thurles. Bombed out on bad ground at Tramore (2m, heavy) latest and hard to make a case for at present.

Dual point-to-point winner who has shown very little so far under rules. Likely to want a bit further than this and easy to look elsewhere.

16/1

Was rated 79 on the flat but has been beaten a very long way on all starts over hurdles. Makes handicap debut off a low mark but even so, would need to do considerably more. Market check needed all the same.

Close third at Tramore (2m) in December is his only piece of form worth a mention among a sea of otherwise moderate efforts. Hard to make a solid case for.

Poor on the flat and well beaten to date in three maiden hurdles. Makes handicap debut today off a low mark but very hard to fancy unless the market speaks in his favour.

10/1

A seven race maiden that has slowly got to grips with the game with each run. Returns here on the back of a six month break but has shaped like further than this trip will be more suitable.

Nibbled in the market and showed much better form when unlucky not to go close at Down Royal two weeks ago. Squeezed for room at a crucial stage there and whilst far from certain to back that up, would be a huge player in this field with a repeat.

Hasn't won over hurdles for nearly four years and has been off the track since unseating rider back in December. Very hard to make a solid case for him on the back of a break.

Dual winner but most recent victory came on the AW over four years ago. Beaten a long way on all recent starts and a similar story is very likely today.

Betting

Forecast

Ingleby Mackenzie (7/2), Easy Pass (7/2), Ben Rumson (7/1), Coherent (9/1), In A Pinch (10/1), Johnny Sue (12/1), Loughnavalley (14/1), Erquy (14/1), The Lady Of Brega (14/1), Buffalo Blues (16/1), Timmone (20/1), Hughies Bay (20/1), Fairy Court (20/1), Island Villa (25/1)

Verdict

Basement stuff and stakes should be kept to a minimum as several of these cannot be relied upon to perform. Buffalo Blues would be of interest if he could translate his flat ability to hurdles. In A Pinch would appeal slightly more over a bit further but the obvious choice in here is to stick with INGLEBYMACKENZIE. He was unlucky not to go close as Down Royal two weeks ago and will be hard to contain with a repeat effort.
