5/2

Been slightly disappointing on a couple of starts on the flat lately. Best of his hurdles form would certainly see him in the picture here and be in the mix.

Fairly consistent hurdler. Ran right up to his best when winning novice hurdle at Listowel (2m, good) last month. Player once again with a similar effort.

8/1

Finished seventh of 14 in a handicap at Wexford when last seen two weeks ago. Should be cherry ripe now and every chance of being in the mix.

Not entirely sure all was well when finishing last of 14 in a handicap at Wexford two weeks ago. Needs to bounce right back to his best in here.

Been running well of late in novice chases. Reverts back to hurdles here with the blinkers fitted for the first time. Market should prove useful .

Betting

Forecast

Black Key (2/1), St Lawrence Gap (5/2), One In All In (4/1), Imperial Way (5/1), My Direction (8/1), Afatcat (12/1), Double Speak (25/1)

Verdict

You can make a case for most of these in a tight little race. Black Key is going the right way and is certainly respected. My Direction could improve on the back of a fair effort in a handicap last time. Slight preference is for ONE IN ALL IN who has improved over hurdles of late and can continue his progress with a win here.
