17:50 Tipperary Thu 24 May 2018
Last seen on a racecourse in a Kilbeggan chase on good ground back in 2016 and will find life tough on return to the track.
In poor form of late in three career maiden hurdles including a 123L defeat when last seen in a Clonmel contest over 2m in February. Looks vulnerable in this company.
Baltic King half-brother to three-times Champion Hurdle runner-up My Tent Or Yours. Little sign of him inheriting any of that ability in his three efforts so far but the best may be yet to come.
Best effort came when a never nearer third over fences on penultimate start. Reverted back to his previous moderate performance level last time.
Posted two solid efforts in March before disappointing as favourite last time when a mistake three out put an end to his chances.
Without a win in 11 hurdle starts and a 17-race maiden overall. Requires a chunk of improvement to play a role here.
Tailed off on all her starts to date. Chances hinge on whether better ground helps as it did for her half-brother Always On The Run.
Showed little in three runs in maiden hurdles so the switch to handicaps may help. Off since October and others make more appeal.
Supported ahead of a promising handicap debut but she failed to back that up next time. Worth bearing in mind if attracting support again for a race as bad as this.
Beaten big distances at huge prices all five starts and has shown very little to date. Hood tried and not hard to look elsewhere for the winner.
Has been left toiling in four career maiden hurdle hurdle starts since March and is easily passed over on handicap debut.
Pick of his Flat form gives him some appeal off this lowly mark. Tailed off in all three attempts over hurdles, but open to some improvement now handicapping on better ground.
Inconsistent maiden who needs to be patiently ridden amidst plenty of cover. Has the right man on board and the return to 2m will help.
Not kicked on from a fair handicap debut at Cork in August 2015, and has had more than enough chances since to break her duck.
Has shown little under both codes and stable have gone more than a year without a winner. In-form claimer on board but it will take more than that to win this.
