8/1

Lightly raced with a win in four hurdle starts but suffered an 83L defeat on racecourse comeback at Ballinrobe in May. Others preferred.

Plenty to take from his two most recent starts in a couple of maiden hurdles over 2m despite being beaten favourite last time out at Kilbeggan. Step up in trip may suit.

Scorpion gelding out of an Old Vic mare. Cost €7,000 as a three-year-old, half-sister to Might Bite and Tell Us More. Market likely to be best guide on debut.

Arcadio gelding out of a Law Society mare. Cost €16,000 as a three-year-old. Half-brother to multiple winner The Game Changer. Pulled-up on sole point-to-point start in May 2016 and best watched here.

Well held and not a great deal to get excited about in two career runs in May including a heavy defeat in a Limerick maiden hurdle when never a factor.

Gelding by Darsi out of a Supreme Leader mare. cost €1,500 as a three-year-old. Half-brother to the Dan Skelton-trained Sir Mangan. Looks a long-term prospect.

Will have disappointed connections in a number of career defeats including two dismal performances this term at Ballinrobe and more recently in a Punchestown maiden hurdle well beaten 23L. Tough task ahead again.

Promising point-to-point form was followed up with a second of 24 beaten 2¼L in a Punchestown maiden hurdle over a similar trip last month. A repeat of that form puts the gelding in the mix here.

Eased when beaten over 3f out in a Punchestown bumper when last seen in May. Hard to fancy on hurdling debut.

Pulled up and finished last of 11 in a Fairyhouse bumper the second of two career starts to date. Last seen in April 2017 and a watching brief is recommended here.

Failed to quicken over 2f out on the good ground in a Punchestown bumper last month. Expected to be primed on hurdling debut for leading yard.

No improvement noted in either of his two bumper starts at Ballinrobe and Punchestown since May, well held on both occasions.

710-11OR:

Poor in two point-to-point starts last year and no hint of any ability in a couple of innocuous displays under rules since May including a 39L defeat in a Kilbeggan novice hurdle last month. Hard to fancy.

610-11OR:

Mistake at the first, detached by half-way and eventually pulled up when tailed off on hurdling debut in a Cork maiden when last seen in April. Looks a tall order on second start.

Daughter of Mountain High out of a Turtle Island mare. Well held 14L behind the winner on sole point-to-point start last month and unlikely to trouble the judge on rules debut.

Beaten a total of 211L in four starts under rules in bumpers and maiden hurdles since April. Will require a chunk of improvement to play a role here.

Betting

Forecast

Santiago de Cuba (5/6), Gigiplan Two Seven (5/2), Licklighter (8/1), Speirling (14/1), Gaillimh Abu (25/1), Serious Ego (25/1), Poor Auld Jess (28/1), Rosserk Abbey (50/1), Ballycanew (50/1), Added Time (50/1), Minstrel Song (66/1), Ask Dee (66/1), Shimmer And Shine (100/1), Berkeley Byron (100/1), Liscananaun Lady (100/1), Darsi's Jewel (100/1)

Verdict

The recent form of the J P McManus-owned SANTIAGO DE CUBA may prove a little too strong for rivals here following solid display at Punchestown and Kilbeggan when second of 13 beaten 3½L recently. The Gordon Elliott-trained Serious Ego is likely to be primed for his hurdling debut and along with potential improver Gigiplan Two Seven can hit the frame in the opener.
