5/1

Won with ease at Kilbeggan back in May off a 7lb lower mark. Nowhere near as good the last twice and now has questions to answer giving weight away here.

Completely out of form last term and pulled up on seasonal debut at Ballinrobe last month. First time cheekpieces didn't bring about much improvement last time. Mark is falling but needs to do more.

Distance winner but the veteran is now without a win over the larger obstacles in six starts since putting his head in front at Clomel last June. Tough ask.

Winner of a Punchestown handicap chase last month off a 7lb lower mark and beaten since. Game sort but may start to struggle off current mark.

Won a novice chase with ease at Down Royal 44 days ago. That should have given him a real confidence boost and should be the type to move forward now. Leading player once more.

Nothing of any note in three hurdle/chase starts since March. Out of sorts recently and this looks a tough ask.

Looked in need of the run on return at Roscommon last month well beaten a very long way. Is capable off this sort of mark so a market check is very much needed.

Unexposed chaser who won as easily as she liked at Wexford last month. Smacked with a 9lb rise for that win but has plenty of scope for improvement and leading contender once more.

Not shown a great deal over fences so far. Fairly decent hurdler though and makes chase handicap debut off a workable mark. Market check needed.

Shown improved form of late and ran well when third at Downpatrick three weeks ago. Type to keep on improving and has sound each-way claims.

Cheekpieces return today but needs to do much more than he has been showing of late. 19-race maiden over the larger obstacles and readily passed over.

Form over fences has not matched that of what he did over hurdles. Starts life in handicaps over fences off workable mark but needs to do plenty more.

Betting

Forecast

Snugsborough Benny (5/2), Net D'Ecosse (5/1), Jack Slade (5/1), Miss Sassie (7/1), Top Of The Town (8/1), Sea Light (9/1), Shanpallas (9/1), Supreme Vinnie (10/1), Ballyegan Hero (12/1), Bosco Di Alco (12/1), Aranhill Chief (14/1), Phil The Flyer (16/1), Surf Instructor (20/1), The Gatechecker (20/1), Inis Meain (25/1)

Verdict

You can make a case for plenty of these. Top Of The Town could show more now and is respected. Bosco Di Alco is getting the hang of things over fences and could go well. Clear preference here is for MISS SASSIE who won with loads in hand last time and can take this despite her 9lb rise.
  1. Miss Sassie
  2. Top Of The Town
  3. Bosco Di Alco
