611-12OR:
9/4

Won a bumper at Leopardstown before finishing midfiled in the Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival last year. Makes hurdling debut after 15 months off the track. Market should guide to expectations on return.

Poor form in three career point-to-point contests and hard to fancy having been well beaten in a maiden hurdle at Down Patrick last time.

Millenary gelding. Dam was average performer on flat and over hurdles. Taken an age to get to the track and market will be best guide.

511-12OR:

Big prices and beaten a long way on two starts over hurdles so far. Handicaps will be a better option after this.

Hard to be too enthusiastic after being beaten 110L in a bumper on debut for this yard last time. Makes hurdles debut but clearly needs to improve bundles for it.

Solid and consistent in two point-to-point starts the latest coming last month. Market possibly best guide to any chance in first-time tongue-tie.

Great Pretender gelding. Second foal, dam was a winner over 2m1f in France and is a half-sister to decent performers Cleni Boy, Magic Sky and Spring Lover. Interesting on paper and market check needed.

Been tried at a variety of trips and conditions. Can be a bit headstrong and can make the odd jumping error but it is all likely to click at some point so not totally dismissed.

511-12OR:

33/1 for both hurdles starts to date and has been beaten a total of 90 lengths. Needs to do much more and will be more suited to handicaps after this.

Similar efforts in two starts over hurdles so far. Sent off favourite last time at Ballinrobe 2m½f, good) when getting outpaced close home and this step up in trip looks a good move. Key player.

Dual performer who has run four really solid races over hurdles, finishing third on each occasion. Should go well again and be pretty tough to keep out of the frame.

611-12OR:

Beaten a very long way in two maiden hurdles at the back end of last year. Given a break on the back of those efforts and Barry Geraghty keeps the ride but hard to fancy unless market screams his name.

Stowaway gelding out of a Roselier mare. Related to Hidden Cyclone, Champagne Fever and Outlander. Well beaten on hurdling debut at Thurles before a heavier defeat when last seen in November. Pulled up last time, others preferred.

Fair flat performer in his day but was sent off 100/1 for hurdles debut two weeks ago and was beaten out of sight. Very difficult to make a case for on that evidence.

First time hood didn't provide much of a spark on second start at Listowel. Ran better than debut though and although hard to enthuse, hope for handicaps on the back of this,

Fair flat performer but hurdling debut left a lot to work on. Type to do a little better in time but should find this pretty tough going.

511-5OR:

Improved effort on second start over hurdles at Tramore (2m5f, good) 11 days ago. That was a step in the right direction and should be more to come.

Average on the flat and two hurdles starts so far have been poor. Likely to find this very tough going.

511-5OR:

Not exactly progressive in bumpers (five runs) and was in trouble a long way from home on hurdles bow at Naas in February. Similar story here (2m) last time and needs the step up in trip to help.

511-5OR:

Point-to-point winner but has been beaten a very long way in bumpers under rules and she is very hard to make a case for on hurdling debut.

Youmzain gelding cost €32,000 as a three-year-old. 33/1 and beaten a long way in a bumper here in April. Makes hurdles debut and market a good guide.

411-4OR:

Beaten a long way in all four career starts. Shaped on hurdling debut last time that this step up in trip might help, that is the only positive.

First reserve: Beaten a very long way in two bumpers and would need an incredible upturn in form on hurdling debut to be involved.

Forecast

Roseriver Has (11/8), Bakmaj (9/4), Itsonlyrocknroll (5/1), Punches Cross (10/1), Sonowyouno (20/1), Fraser (25/1), Jack Fiasco (33/1), Great Cleni (33/1), Galveston (33/1), Jezarus (33/1), Pottsie (33/1), Cheap And Cheerful (40/1), Jake Peter (40/1), Getaday (40/1), Gigiplan Two Seven (50/1), Lady Maram (50/1), Gaillimh Abu (66/1), Cap'tain Youm (66/1), Humps And Bumps (66/1), Old Head (66/1), Triangle Rock (66/1), Captain Cobajay (66/1), Betsy Boots (66/1), Devon Knows (66/1), Yea Or Nay (66/1), Jessamine (100/1), Xinbama (100/1), Loveinalamborghini (N/A)

Verdict

This is nowhere near as strong as the numbers suggest. Punches Cross was sent of favourite last time and seemingly got outpaced close home, this step up in trip looks a good move. Bakmaj looked to have a good future after winning his bumper last year and is respected on return from a lengthly absence. Preference though is for ROSERIVER HAS who has put up four really solid runs so far over hurdles and can gain some reward here with a well deserved victory.
