Would possibly won more impressively if not for pecking on landing in a Kilbeggan handicap hurdle earlier this month consequently winning by 1½L. Plenty in favour here venturing in to novice company.

Stayed on well to win a Wexford maiden hurdle earlier this month over 2m. Enters calculations here braving novice company for the first time.

9/4

Showed improvement on a disappointing debut in December when finishing third of 15 in a maiden hurdle here before another bold show at Tramore earlier this month finishing second of 15 beaten 4L. Likable type who should be in the mix.

Six-race maiden hurdler who has been well held in two starts since April including a 6L defeat when fifth of 11 at Tramore earlier this month. Place claims at best here.

Without a win in four hurdle starts including a 12L defeat on handicap debut in a Ballinrobe contest over 2m½f. Opposable on overall performances.

Nothing of any note in two maiden hurdle starts last month well held at Punchestown and Ballinrobe. Form doesn't warrant support here.

Modest hurdler who was second of three at Sligo last month and has been well beaten since. Hard to construct much of a case for the filly here.

Has appeared the gelding has been waiting for the move in to handicap company running two solid races last month including a win at Wexford over 2m on good ground. Looks a progressive type and shortlisted here.

Betting

Forecast

Count Simon (9/4), Ballybrowney Jack (7/2), Statistical (9/2), Golden Poet (6/1), I've Got Rhythm (8/1), Try Again (14/1), Mary Sun (14/1), Duke's Girl (25/1)

Verdict

COUNT SIMON can add to his bold show at Tramore earlier this month finishing second of 15 beaten 4L on good ground and land the spoils here with impressive Wexford victor Ballybrowney Jack set to continue his improvement in this contest. The Denis Hogan-trained Golden Poet and the Gigginstown House Stud-owned Statistical can battle for the minors.
  1. Count Simon
