20/1

One win from 11 hurdle starts and will possibly need the run on return following a two-year break.

Poor 127-rated chaser not seen over a hurdle since finishing fifth of seven beaten 7½L in a Thurles contest in March 2017. Plenty to prove on hurdling return.

Got off the mark over hurdles at the ninth time of asking in a Ballinrobe maiden over 2m½f in May. Beaten since in a couple of handicaps but not easily dismissed.

711-12OR: D
11/4

Third of 24 at Fairyhouse in January and won a Bellewstown maiden hurdle on Saturday beating 15 rivals a neck from Paris Texas over 2m½f. Quickly turned out and capable of having his say again.

7/4

C&D winner here last month ridden clear late on to win by a comfortable 5½L. Beaten since at Bellewstown over inadequate trip but big claims here with conditions to suit.

12/1

One from 12 over timber but had been solid and consistent in a number of promising starts last term. May need the run on seasonal return.

510-13OR:
100/1

Poor form in three point-to-point starts failing to finish in a couple of spins over 3m. Best avoided on rules debut and first start for over 12-months.

Betting

Forecast

Count Simon (7/4), Political Policy (11/4), Niven (7/2), Midnight Escape (8/1), Tranquil Magic (12/1), Fearachain (20/1), Nellys Robin (100/1)

Verdict

C&D winner COUNT SIMON can land the opener here for leading trainer/jockey combination, Gordon Elliott and Davy Russell taking advantage of the possible early pace in the race from Tranquil Magic. The four-year-old was beaten earlier in the month in a competitive looking contest at Bellewstown recently but this event looks easier with conditions to suit. The Noel Meade-trained Niven can fight for the minor honours with last time out winner, Political Policy.
