511-7OR: 97
11/4

Well held in two maiden hurdle starts last month but can build on those efforts to improve in this company.

511-7OR:
66/1

Modest six-race mare on the Flat. Others look more significantly open to improvement for first hurdling start.

511-7OR:
7/1

Arakan mare who cost £12,500 as a three-year-old. Modest point-to-point starts since March and first time tongue-tie could have a positive effect on debut under rules.

511-7OR:
8/15

Plenty to like about her promising run here over C&D last month finishing third of 12 beaten 4L behind Maple Lawn. Entitled to make the shortlist.

50/1

Beaten over 35L on her three previous starts since May including two heavy defeats over hurdles. May find a couple too good here.

411-1OR:
20/1

Kept on one pace after the 2f marker on debut at Roscommon last month eventually finishing ninth of 18 beaten 12L. Hard to construct much of a case for the filly here.

411-1OR:
33/1

Well beaten 20L on only point-to-point start the filly has completed. Hard to fancy until showing hints of ability in forthcoming contests.

411-1OR: 89
20/1

Has failed to start shorter than 66/1 in three maiden hurdle starts last month and unlikely to play a part in the finish here.

411-1OR:
16/1

Sixth foal who is closely related to Champion Court and Court Duty. Yard one from nine this season and best watched debut.

Betting

Forecast

Isle Of Destiny (8/15), Aasleagh Dawn (11/4), Inishbel (7/1), Orleefa (16/1), La Belle De Paris (20/1), Delightful Dame (20/1), Miss Lanefox (25/1), Derecho Storm (25/1), I'm On Snap (33/1), Bobbie The Dazzler (50/1), Danville Girl (66/1)

Verdict

With most of the field a mixture of debutantes and out of form sorts it may be better to side with the improvement of the Gordon Elliott-trained ISLE OF DESTINY who finished third of 12 beaten 4L behind Maple Lawn in a maiden hurdle here last month. The fifth in the race, Katoptris and eighth place Presentingprincess have both come out and won. Gavin Cromwell's Aasleagh Dawn and hurdling newcomer, Inishbel, can give the selection the most to think about.
