611-7OR:
1/2

Had form at a modest level in France where she was prone to mistakes. Debuts for top yard following a two-year absence and the opposition is not strong despite the numbers.

Well-beaten in two bumpers and makes hurdling debut following a ten month break. Hard to recommend under those circumstances.

45-rated Flat maiden makes hurdling debut. Hard to believe there is not something with more ability lurking amongst the opposition.

511-7OR: BF
12/1

Sets the standard following her last two runs. Point-to-point form indicates these quicker conditions will not pose any problems at all.

Court Cave half-sister to multiple winners Skylander and Gettysburg Address. Tailed off on bumper debut and she looks a longer term project.

Last RunWatch last race

511-7OR:
50/1

Has shown little so far but there were minor signs of progress last time and a tongue-tie is fitted this time. Worth checking in the market for a race that will take little winning.

Last RunWatch last race

511-7OR:

Has made the frame in three modest maiden hurdles and each-way claims now contesting another race of similar standard.

Last RunWatch last race

511-7OR:

Has exhibited some ability in bumpers when she has not appeared to stay. Questions to answer on hurdling debut at this trip.

Last RunWatch last race

511-7OR:
66/1

Has made no impact on either start under rules and sole run in a point-to-point. Top rider booked but otherwise she has little going for her.

511-7OR:
50/1

Well bred daughter of Flemensfirth out of a mare related to top class sorts Tidal Bay and Imperial Commander. No show on either start but the combination of longer trip/better ground and tongue-tie will be expected to see some improvement.

Last RunWatch last race

611-7OR:
66/1

Failed to finish in three point-to-point starts over 3m. Mare related to useful sorts Ms Parfois, Sutton Place and Delusionofgrandeur. Looked one paced on rules debut and shorter trip looks a problem.

511-7OR:

Half-sister to useful winners Robin Des Foret, Port Melon and Robin The Raven. In good hands and would not need to be anything out of the ordinary to make a winning start.

Last RunWatch last race
13
511-7OR:
12/1

Has made the frame on both starts but has been beaten a fair way in doing so. Probably has a small race in her but she is probably running to a mark of about 100 at present. It would normally take more than that to win one of these.

711-7OR: 97
20/1

Showed some ability last summer and has been on the sidelines since a poor run in September. Has an official mark of 97 and hard to believe she will be good enough judged on that.

511-7OR:
100/1

Scorpion filly is a half-sister to bumper winner/fairly useful hurdler (2m winner) Paolozzi. Well beaten on bumper debut a year ago and unlikely she will be straight enough for first try over hurdles.

Last RunWatch last race

511-7OR:
16/1

Has obvious shortcomings and her recent form figures are flattering. Nevertheless she commands respect hailing from a top yard in a contest that will take little winning.

Pair of fair efforts over timber at Clonmel earlier in the year over 2m-2m2½f, both on heavy ground, but not as good when conditions improved last time.

410-12OR:

Some signs of ability on debut in a modest Sligo event. Shaped as though she will stay this far with little trouble and even a modest amount of improvement should put her in the picture.

410-12OR:

Half-sister to four-time winner Emerging Talent. Stable not readily associated with debut winners and best watched for the future.

410-12OR:

Has finished nearer last than first in all starts under both codes. Hard to fancy despite the lack of talent in this lineup.

Forecast

Calie Du Mesnil (1/2), Kilbarry Angel (11/2), Fiveaftermidnight (12/1), Miz Dilleen (12/1), Sweetlight D'Oroux (16/1), Derecho Storm (16/1), Mother's Best (20/1), Trumps Ace (25/1), Milomynit (25/1), Kilkeaskin Molly (33/1), Kilbarry Calling (33/1), Josephina (50/1), Loughaderra Flame (50/1), Running Skeard (50/1), Little Gold (50/1), Lady Rococo (66/1), My Baby Kelsey (66/1), Dressednblack (66/1), My Pal Amelia (66/1), Lyre Fun (66/1), Humps And Bumps (100/1), Scorpy Lady (100/1), Coolroe Cross (100/1)

Verdict

Willie Mullins has entered French import Calie Du Mesnil who was prone to mistakes overseas and reappears after a long absence. Her odds are likely to represent poor value. Kilkeaskin Molly makes each-way appeal following a promising debut when looking ready for this longer trip. FIVEAFTERMIDNIGHT has been progressing nicely. This looks an easier assignment and this trip/ground combination make her an attractive option. Sweetlight D'oroux and Miz Dilleen are limited in ability but may have found their right level in this, whilst the well-bred newcomer Milomynit would only need to be of average ability to win this.
