511-12OR: C
3/1
Won a bumper at the second time of asking over 2m1½f last month on good ground. Another bold show likely on hurdling debut with yard having a decent strike-rate at this meeting.

Well beaten in a bumper and on maiden hurdle debut at Listowel earlier this month. Looks a long-term prospect.

611-4OR:
50/1
Solid and consistent in the point-to-point field but beaten a total of 91L in two career hunter chase starts last month. Well out of his depth in this company.

511-4OR:
3/1
Maiden for Ed Walker on the Flat and well beaten on maiden hurdle debut finishing fifth of 18 when injuring left fore in a Killarney maiden hurdle back in May last year. Sure to be fit enough to do himself justice on return.

511-4OR:
50/1
Last of 18 on maiden hurdle debut earlier this month and first time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

6/4
Defied long-odds here last month when finishing second of 15 beaten 9L in a maiden hurdle over 2m3f. Goes well here and acts on the ground, entitled to make the shortlist here.

Beaten favourite here last month in a 2m1½f bumper finishing 27L adrift of the winner Turbo. Improvement expected though on second maiden hurdle start.

Well beaten on maiden hurdle debut at Killarney last month when finishing 15th of 16 and unlikely to play a part in the finish here.

410-13OR:

Modest in the point-to-point ranks and difficult to see where the improvement is going to come from in first-time cheekpieces.

510-11OR:

Daughter of Kalanisi and a full-sister to four time point-to-point winner Kalastar. 25L adrift of the winner on maiden hurdle debut at Sligo last month and very little to be positive about here.

Betting

Forecast

Ravenhill (6/4), Turbo (3/1), Easy Gold (3/1), Tipp Toe (6/1), Amicus Abu (25/1), Pegase Amour (25/1), Streets Of London (33/1), As Sweet As Tea (33/1), Flatist (50/1), Captain Cook (50/1), Casamicciola (66/1)

Verdict

RAVENHILL is taken to out-point the returning from injury Easy Gold here. The Gordon Elliott charge in good form following a promising second of 15 here last month, while the Willie Mullins-trained gelding finished fifth of 18 when injuring left fore in a Killarney maiden hurdle back in May last year and can be expected to be fit enough to do himself justice on return. Turbo from a yard that goes well at this meeting can fill third place.
