511-7OR:

Point-to-point winner hasn't achieved a lot in four starts over timber and looks one to avoid in betting for now.

Wexford bumper winner, took fifth of 16 in novice hurdle at Listowel (2m, good) on hurdles bow 19 days ago and open to progress.

Sulamani mare whose dam was a 1m6f-2m winner. Maiden pointer, finished third in that sphere earlier in the month so no fitness worries here.

Has shown ability in a couple of bumpers already, longer trip should help now hurdling for the first time and represents top trainer/jockey team.

Mountain High mare. Sister to modest 2m2f hurdle winner Ciankyle. Not the most likely of winners on paper ahead of racecourse bow.

Beat just one rival home in soft-ground bumper at Cork in April on debut under rules. Upped in trip for hurdles bow and liable to need more experience.

A maiden after 33 starts in both codes and her better efforts have come on AW. Hard to construct much of a case for her here reverting to hurdling.

Made her debut in a Listed bumper at Limerick, but soundly beaten there, and similar story in a maiden hurdles at Kilbeggan and Punchestown last year. Off 388 days and has changed hands since.

Produced best effort to date in Clonmel maiden hurdle last month over 2m½f but took a backwards step since in a bumper at the same track on good ground. Needs to up game to be involved at business end.

Multiple point-to-point winner, sported a hood (retained) when making hurdles bow at Downpatrick last weekend. Was already beaten when losing ground after a late stumble.

Beat only one of 15 rivals home on hurdling bow recently at Clonmel. Likely can do better in time but probably best watched in the short term.

Showed more in first-time cheekpieces when third of 13 in novice hurdle at Wexford over this trip recently. Will be of interest should she build on that and gets champion jockey for company now.

9/2

Dual point-to-point winner, was going along well (early on) when slipping at Downpatrick recently, needs more than has been shown thus far and potentially going to offer more when handicapped.

611-7OR:
6/1

Has shown promise in four starts over timber, including over this trip, though a niggling suspicion that might be at his best with some juice in the ground. Place claims on most recent effort.

Just the two starts behind her under rules and hasn't cut much ice, returns from an eight-month absence tackling hurdles for the first time.

Good effort (fifth of 14) in 2m5f Tramore novice event three weeks ago, likely going to improve on that showing before too long.

Daughter of Tikkanen purchased for €2,800 as a three-year-old in August 2014. Full-sister to the useful Boreham Bill. Must improve on two runs to date (Second Reserve).

Verdict

Bumper winner AGUSTA GOLD let favourite backers down at a short price recently at Killarney on her hurdles bow. She made some jumping errors there but will have learned plenty and should be able to step up on the run now meeting a short trip. Holy Motivation represents a lofty trainer/jockey team embarking on her career over timber and can be given a chance along with Sorrel Sue, who improved last time, and Yeats Mardy, who showed up well at Tramore earlier in the month.
