812-1OR: 92D
5/1

Landed second hurdle win of his career in a Wexford handicap hurdle, ridden to lead at the last keeping on well under pressure to beat 13 rivals on Friday. 6lb penalty off-set by claimer and another bold show looks likely.

Got off the mark at the 14th time of asking on Saturday in a Bellewstown handicap hurdle over 2m4f leading from three out keeping on well to win by 2¾L. Carries a 6lb penalty and drop back in trip has to be a concern.

Four race maiden hurdler rated 104 last term for previous handler Micky Hammond. Well beaten and no impression in four dour displays on the Flat for new connections and difficult to make a case for back over timber.

Solid and consistent in two starts this season including a win over C&D last month beating 15 rivals by a commanding 8L on good ground. Entitled to make the shortlist despite 9lb hike in the weights.

Has failed to build on a promising run at Down Royal in May when third of 20 beaten 2¾L in a handicap hurdle over 2m on good ground. Beaten over further on her last two outings but of interest back at this trip.

Generally, well held in three hurdle starts since May but stable in fine form at the moment with four winners from their last 12 runners. Market likely to be the best guide.

Inconsistent form in four starts since May and needs to show significant improvement to play a role in this company.

Possibly needed the run on stable debut when fourth of seven beaten 22L in a Kilbeggan beginners chase last month. Worth a market check reverting back to hurdling on second start for yard.

Winner of six of his 24 point-to-point starts but remains a 12-race maiden under rules and has not jumped a hurdle in public since June 2011. Hard to fancy.

21-race maiden who has failed to finish two of his six starts over hurdles. Likely to find one or two in better form here.

Will have disappointed immediate connections in a number of desolate displays over hurdles since May and unlikely to play a part in the finish here.

Put a number of below-par performances behind him when finishing third of 14 beaten 7¼L behind the winner Naturally Blonde at Wexford on Friday. Possible place claims from a similar mark.

Well held in a number of heavy defeats since March over hurdles and first-time blinkers unlikely to provide the necessary improvement needed here.

Sole hurdle win in 35 starts came in a Sligo contest in August 2015 off a similar mark for previous handler. Likely to need the run here being off the track for over two years.

Eight-race maiden hurdler who is yet to hit the frame. Not seen since being pulled-up at Galway in October and is readily opposable here.

Forecast

Mister Butler (5/2), Naturally Blond (5/1), Rathnaleen Girl (13/2), Realta Dawn (7/1), Perfect Leader (7/1), Like A Diamond (8/1), Ciankyle (8/1), Feeling The Love (14/1), Follow The Moon (22/1), Trendsetter (25/1), Coherent (25/1), Eusebius (25/1), Vocal Heir (25/1), Aimee Kate (25/1), Lizzies Way (25/1), Baby Bellini (33/1), Whisky Galore (33/1), Presenting Court (33/1), Lady Germany (33/1), Fly De Megaudais (50/1), Whatdoes Jack Say (50/1)

Verdict

The 6lb penalty shouldn't be much of a disadvantage to NATURALLY BLONDE with the his 7lb claimer in the saddle to follow-up his gallant win at Wexford recently. Ciankyle, C&D winner last month beating 15 rivals by a commanding 8L on good ground and last time out winner of a Bellewstown handicap hurdle Mister Butler can give the selection the most to think about here.
