511-12OR:
50/1

Fairly modest Flat maiden, makes jumps bow here on debut for new yard and sports a tongue tie. Has to improve to figure at the business end.

Maiden, faller on hurdles bow at Wexford (20f, good) in May, beaten at the time. Gets a first-time tongue strap now.

Finished a creditable third of 16 in novice hurdle at Bellewstown over similar trip/ground just six days ago and entitled to competitive in this event.

611-12OR:
40/1

Just the two starts over timber for previous handler, failed to cut much ice. Both runs were on testing ground however. Back from a short break with new yard and must improve.

811-12OR:
66/1

Well beaten in a bumper last November and it was a similar story on hurdling debut at Tramore (2m5f, good) last month before an unseat at Tipperary eight days ago.

511-12OR:

Just the one starts, finishing no better than midfield in 24-runner novice hurdle (2m4f, good) at Punchestown last month, watching brief here.

511-12OR:
20/1

Finished ninth of 20 in novice hurdle at Tipperary (2m4f, good) on jumps bow earlier this month. Drops in trip and may build on that run.

611-12OR:
20/1

Sold for 145,000 gns in October 2015 after promising start on the Flat for Andrew Balding, long absence to overcome and changed hands for a fraction of the price to join this yard. First time over jumps.

511-12OR:
8/1

Not shown a great deal in three bumpers and two maiden hurdles so far. No improvement on debut for this top yard at Down Royal in May, market check now returned to hurdling given connections.

Last RunWatch last race

511-12OR:
8/11

Finished second of 10 in novice hurdle at Downpatrick (2m5½f, good) on hurdles bow last month having previously won a bumper at the same track. Down in trip, sets the standard.

Last RunWatch last race

511-12OR:
14/1

Four-time winner on the Flat for Kevin Ryan in England, with a peak rating of 98. Returns from an absence, sports array of new headgear and makes jumps bow for new yard. One to keep a close eye on.

Last RunWatch last race

511-12OR:
100/1

Beneficial gelding, makes some appeal on pedigree, pulled up in sole point-to-point start for previous handler. New yard, possibly best watched for now.

Last RunWatch last race
15
125/1

Poor record in point-to-points and bumpers, failed to enhance that when unseating rider at the first in 2m Kilbeggan maiden hurdle 18 days ago. Hard to make a case for.

Last RunWatch last race

511-5OR:
50/1

Improved nominally on second start over timber at Down Royal (2m½f, good) last month, though still managed to beat only two of nine rivals home. More required.

611-5OR: D
20/1

Tramore bumper winner on good ground in August 2016. Jumping errors evident in both starts over timber, a year apart. Has benefit of recent run, though not much else to be positive about.

Last RunWatch last race

511-5OR:
100/1

Beaten out of sight in maiden hurdles at Thurles and Clonmel in the autumn and off since. Has generous amount of improvement to find now meeting this better surface.

511-5OR:
50/1

Pulled up on hurdling bow on heavy ground in February but put in an improved effort when 35L seventh at Killarney (2m1f, yielding) last time. Market support would be interesting here.

Last RunWatch last race

511-5OR:
100/1

Sent off 100/1 and beat only one of 13 rivals home last month at Wexford, major surprise should she play a leading role in this contest.

511-5OR:

Scorpion mare. Dam placed in bumper/maiden hurdler. Likely to have limited aspirations on debut. Market may reveal more.

Forecast

Turbo (8/11), Bensachuine (7/2), Texie Rexie (8/1), Weekend Offender (14/1), Howth Summit (20/1), Frazel Express (20/1), Make It Up (20/1), Great Cleni (33/1), Cesar Du Gouet (40/1), Dunloe Lady (50/1), Slieve Coillte (50/1), Aegeus (50/1), Ballinlina Boy (66/1), Dennehys Pride (66/1), That'sthatdev (66/1), Whatsafellatodo (100/1), Glamorous Gold (100/1), Viempa (100/1), Zita's Way (100/1), Turnpike Thunder (100/1), Choice Of Diamonds (125/1)

Verdict

TURBO was a bumper winner at Downpatrick and made an encouraging start over hurdles (second) there last month. He looks to hold strong claims of going one better in this line-up dropped to the minimum trip. Weekend Offender had plenty of ability on the Flat and will surely win races over timber if transferring it to this discipline. Texie Rexie is worth monitoring in the betting for Gordon Elliott and could be an improver while Slieve Coillte is another that would be noted if attracting any money.
