811-10OR: 109D
2/1

Returned to action over hurdles at Punchestown (2m, soft) when well beaten last month. Races off a lower mark for handicap chase debut but will need to step up on that performance all the same. Yard going well.

6/1

Possibly on a fair mark on what we have seen so far. Hampered and unseated his rider three-out at Tipperary last time. Too early to tell if he would have been involved in the finish there. Chances once again.

8/1

Drops back in trip after being well beaten at Killarney (2m4½f, yielding) last time. has run well off this sort of mark in the past so it is not easy to dismiss his chance altogether.

9/2

Returns from a six month break and definite scope off this sort of mark but bigger worry would be this trip on this ground. Needs a bit further than this ideally, but market check needed all the same.

14/1

Still a couple of pounds higher than for his last win. Tongie tie and blinkers go on for the first time in an effort to eek out a bit more. Needs to brush up his jumping as he is prone to a bad error or two.

25/1

Moderate hurdler that has been well beaten in a couple of efforts over fences. Moves into handicap company off a mark higher than his hurdles form and hard to make a solid case for.

1010-8OR: 93D
9/1

Average hurdler who hasn't cut much ice in novice chases. Makes handicap chase debut off a tough enough mark and probably best watched unless market speaks in his favour.

1110-7OR: 92
5/1

Beaten a total of 72L in his two chase starts to date and is pretty hard to make a case for. Back from a six month break and blinkers go on for the first time. Makes handicap chase debut.

69-11OR: 82
25/1

Eleven race maiden and well beaten on handicap chase debut at Tramore (2m5f, heavy) last time out. Probably best watched for now until showing more.

Betting

Forecast

Rebelion Boy (2/1), Summer Storm (9/2), Bakers Street (5/1), Samson Bill (6/1), Zipporah (6/1), Dark Outsider (8/1), Icelip (9/1), By The Banks (12/1), Hard Bought (14/1), Omega Springs (25/1), Ballykea Star (25/1)

Verdict

Several of these have questions to answer on current form. Rebelion Boy is capable of bouncing back to form and his yard continue in a good spell. Samson Bill and Dark Outsider are both capable on going days and are part of the shortlist. That list is headed though by ZIPPORAH who drops in trip today and there is a good chance she’ll get a soft lead and take some catching.
