4/1
Consistent sort who was a beaten favourite last time out in a Listowel handicap hurdle earlier this month. Acts on the ground and place claims dropping back in trip.

Well held in two starts since returning to the track last month and has struggle don the surface in the past. Will need to improve to figure.

Distance winner of a Tramore handicap hurdle in August off a 3lb lower mark. Has generally struggled since in four contests beaten over 11L on each occasion.

Possibly needed the run one seasonal bow in a Kilbeggan handicap hurdle when making no progress earlier this month to finish down the field. Third of 17 in this race last year off a similar mark.

Pulled up before two out in a Ballinrobe handicap hurdle on return to the track last month on his first start since October. Looks a tall order on form shown.

Lightly raced modest performer who was last seen finishing 67L behind the winner in a Tramore handicap hurdle in October. Plenty to prove on return to the track.

Well held and never nearer on two handicap hurdle spins at Limerick and Tipperary last month. Others hols stronger profiles.

11/1
Distance winner who has shown flickers of promise in his last two starts at Tramore at the beginning of the month running twice in the space of two days. Acts on the ground but is now 17lb lower than his last winning mark.

Temperamental sort who saw off three different trainers in 2017. Makes debut for new connections here and hard to place any faith in.

7/1
Plenty to like about his second of 18 beaten a head in a Limerick handicap hurdle last month and could go close here with a repeat of that form here off a 2lb lower mark than last win.

16/1
Well held on his last two starts when last seen in October at Galway and first time tongue-tie unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

First-time cheekpieces are reached for but are unlikely to have any effect on her abysmal form show over hurdles to date.

Has failed to make the places in six starts over this trip and first-time tongue-tie is unlikely to find the missing piece in the jigsaw in this contest.

25/1
Distance winner who is lightly raced of late and the gelding possibly needed the run on return to the track when finishing 11th of 12 beaten 80L on seasonal debut earlier this month. Very little to be positive about here.

Beaten a total of over 40L on two handicap hurdle starts to date and unlikely to be troubling the judge here.

Caught the eye when finishing second of 20 beaten 4¾L in a Down Royal handicap hurdle last month over 2m3f. Wont want the ground too firm but a repeat of that run gives him a chance.

Not much to shout about in three modest handicap hurdle performances last month and needs to improve significantly if he is to play a role here.

Forecast

I'm Serious (4/1), Oromo (5/1), Ciankyle (7/1), Baby Bellini (7/1), Mr Moondance (8/1), Lizzies Way (8/1), Hugh Divots (10/1), Shaw's Cross (11/1), Miracle Cure (11/1), Athloman Cottage (12/1), Seaboard (14/1), Sandy Cove (16/1), Lakeside Pearl (16/1), Rose's In The Rain (25/1), Grande Waltz (25/1), Like A Diamond (25/1), Daigreen (25/1), Divin Desir (28/1), Highly Driven (40/1), Eusebius (50/1), Dalmarella Dancer (50/1)

Verdict

Competitive handicap hurdle here with any number capable of upping their game to land the spoils. OROMO caught the eye when finishing second of 20 beaten 4¾L in a Down Royal handicap hurdle last month over 2m3½f on good ground and could possibly improve on that run here with I'm Serious, Lizzies Way, who ran well on seasonal debut last month and Ciankyle can battle for the minors.
