Returned from a short break to be beaten quite a long way at Ballinrobe 2m½f, good) two weeks ago. Good chance he needed that and has been dropped 2lb with top rider on board.

Smart performer on his day but has clearly had some issues having not been seen on the track for well over 600 days. Likely to need this run on return to action.

Blew away the cobwebs on first start for this yard at Down Royal three weeks ago. Should strip fitter now and is on a nice mark. Leading player for top yard.

Won a handicap hurdle off a 5lb lower mark back in August and has been chasing since. Still some room for manoeuvre off her lower hurdles mark and not easily discounted.

Made a winning handicap debut over hurdles when last seen at Galway (2m½f, yielding) back in July. 13lb higher mark to contend with here on the back of a lengthly absence and goes up significantly in trip. Market useful.

Recording his first victory when winning over an extended 2m6f at Killarney (good) last July. Couldn't cope with the 9lb rise next time over this trip at Galway and has been off for 311 days since. More improvement likely at some stage if not today.

Came from an unpromising position to score at Clonmel off a 6lb lower mark back in September. Struggled off this mar next time and has been off the track for 223 days since. Needs to bounce back.

Form really went off the boil last year over fences and hurdles. Beaten 8L in a point-to-point last month on return to action. Starts life for a new yard today and whilst this mark is ok, needs plenty more.

Better known as a chaser these days and sole hurdles effort off 1lb higher this year was a poor one. More than capable on a going day but percentage call is to oppose for now.

Won a reappearance off a 6lb lower mark at Tramore (2m5f, heavy) in April. Struggled off this mark in two starts since and a similar story beckons here.

Been in good form of late and ran two solid races within the space of four days three weeks ago. Crept up a couple of pounds without winning and this is a deeper race so likely to find one or two too good once more.

Made all to win a shade cosily at Wexford (2m4f, good) three weeks ago. Raised 7lbs for that win but a chance this step up in trip could suit and should give it another good go from the front.

Been out of sorts on tow starts so far this year. Pulled up on latest effort at Tramore. Goes up in trip today and is on a good mark but needs to bounce back to take a hand.

Running pretty well without winning when last seen at the back-end of last summer. Returns on the same mark and off a light weight so could be a danger if fit and ready to go.

Betting

Forecast

Spring Watch (7/2), Small World (5/1), Bye Bye O Bye (6/1), Tulsa Jack (7/1), Thanks For Tea (7/1), Top Of The Town (8/1), Eagle Lion (8/1), Dawn Raider (12/1), Pateen (12/1), Sam King (14/1), My Betty (16/1), Moylisha Tim (20/1), Steamboat Bill (20/1), Glendine River (22/1), Definite Soldier (25/1)

Verdict

An open contest. My Betty won well when dominating last time and will be a player again if able to dictate over this longer trip. Pateen won as he liked when last seen way back in July and will be hard to keep out the mix off this higher mark going up in trip if fit and ready to go. Preference on this occasion though is for SPRING WATCH who bolted up here last time and the rise in the weights may not be enough to stop him winning again.
