2/1

Off the mark at the seventh time of asking when winning here over 2m1½L last month off a 8lb lower mark. Each way claims from new mark.

9/2

Modest 60-rated handicapper on the Flat who was last seen over hurdles in an Uttoxeter handicap in February finishing last of seven. Plenty to prove at this level.

Nothing of note in six hurdle starts to date and unlikely to play a part in the finish in this company.

611-5OR: 88
9/1

Well held in four maiden hurdles and on handicap debut when last seen finishing 34L adrift of the winner of a Thurles contest in March. Form doesn't warrant support.

911-3OR: 86

Poor form in a series of dismal performances last term and hard to construct much of a case for the gelding on seasonal debut.

Found on the AW at Dundalk towards the end of last year and has failed to finish in the top eight in four career hurdle spins to date. Looks opposable on return.

611-2OR: 85

23-race maiden well held on stable debut in May in a 7f Curragh handicap. No impression in four hurdle starts to date and difficult to see any light at the end of the tunnel just yet.

8/1

Distance winner who has won two of his 23 hurdle starts. Most recent win came in May in a Limerick handicap chase. Could be of interest back on winning mark.

10-race maiden hurdler and well held on most recent starts. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Has produced a number of laboured runs recently and has plenty to prove in this contest with ground conditions a major concern.

Wellb beaten and no impression finishing over 20L behind the winner in each of his last three handicap hurdle starts. Looks up against it here.

Forecast

Verdict

TOUCHEDBYANANGEL can continue winning ways here after getting off the mark at the seventh time of asking when winning here over 2m1½L last month. Chase winner in May, Grey Mountain Mist and the Gordon Elliott-trained Make My Heart Fly both act on the ground and can go well here for each way backers with conditions to suit.
