1
711-12OR:
7/2

Solid and consistent in three handicap hurdle starts since February. Market likely to reveal expectations on chasing debut.

711-12OR: D
5/1

Second of 13 on sole point-to-point completion, act son the ground and has won over the trip. Not easy to discount on chasing bow.

Last RunWatch last race

611-12OR:
7/2

Modest 109-rated hurdler who failed to finish on his last two starts in February and last month at Limerick. Will need to raise overall performance to play a role in the finish on stable debut.

1011-12OR: 109D
8/1

Eight-race chase maiden who looks to have had plenty of opportunity's to get off the mark previously and one to avoid in this contest.

611-12OR:
9/1

102-rated hurdler where market will be the best guide on chasing debut. Yard among the winners this month and not easy to completely dismiss.

911-12OR:
33/1

Lightly raced gelding who finished 11th of 14 beaten 68L in a Fairyhouse beginners chase before slight flickers of hope when finishing fifth of seven in a Down Royal chase last month. Still opposable in this company.

611-12OR:
10/1

Modest form in three maiden hurdles since November including a 66L defeat here last month. First-time tongue-tie unlikely to be the final piece of the jigsaw here.

1011-12OR:
20/1

Stayed on well to assert close home in March before finishing fifth of 10 beaten 31L in a Ballinrobe beginners chase last month. Looks up against it here.

511-10OR: 109
4/1

Well held in three chase starts to date despite the flattering finishing positions. Plenty of work to do based on what he has shown so far.

Last RunWatch last race

511-10OR:
33/1

Generally disappointing 99-rated hurdler who can be expected to struggle on chasing debut here and looks a longer-term prospect.

Last RunWatch last race

611-5OR:
66/1

Modest hurdler who failed to finish in two point-to-point starts last term and very little to be positive about on chasing debut.

Betting

Forecast

Caliption (7/2), An'ball (7/2), Jefferson Davis (4/1), Big Bad Brian (5/1), Cloudy Morning (8/1), Cote Tete (9/1), Kilbrew Gold (10/1), Rossmore's Pride (20/1), Kalamkan (33/1), Drummullagh Rocky (33/1), Ashbourne Allstar (66/1)

Verdict

With plenty of those with chase experience out of form it may pay to follow chasing debutantes' with the Gordon Elliott-trained CALIPTION taken to get off the mark on stable debut. Modest hurdling performers An'ball, the Denis Hogan-trained Big Bad Brian and another Gigginstown House Stud runner Cote Tete can fight for the minor honours.
