25/1

Winner at Tramore over hurdles in June but two lesser efforts since then and hard to know what to expect here still 3lb higher than last win.

4/1

112-rated chaser who has been running well over the larger obstacles of late. Without a win from four starts over hurdles and difficult to see any improvement here.

5/2

Won here on her latest visit when landing a handicap hurdle over 3m on good ground earlier this month winning her third race over timber. Another bold show likely despite 7lb rise.

20/1

Sole success in 19 starts came in a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle on good ground in September 2016. Point-to-point winner recently but really needs to up his game here.

33/1

Winner of a point-to-point in May before being well held in a Tipperary maiden hurdle earlier this month over 2m4f on good ground. Market likely to be the best guide here.

27-race maiden, 15 of them over hurdles. In capable hands but will need to raise overall performance to play a role here.

711-1OR: 91
25/1

Slight promise in a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle last month finishing sixth of 14 beaten 12L before returning to disappoint in a Wexford contest earlier this month. Hard to fancy on latest evidence.

Improved on previous starts when meeting trouble in running to eventually finish third of 12 beaten 4½L here over 3m earlier this month. Needs to improve again but shortlisted.

9/4

Backed in to 7/2f from an opening show of 8/1 in a Down Royal handicap hurdle last month eventually finishing second of 16 beaten 3¾L over 2m4f following a series of poor displays since March. One to note in the market.

Got off the mark on the ninth time of asking over hurdles last month in a Kilbeggan handicap holding on well in the closing stages to win by ¾L. Another bold show looks on the cards.

Tailed off on all four starts and showed little ability for previous connections. Watching brief for now on stable debut.

Betting

Forecast

Viking Hoard (9/4), Mill Quest (5/2), Matin D'Anjou (4/1), Wee Tiger (11/2), Directional (12/1), Theatre World (14/1), Oighear Dubh (20/1), Famous Day (25/1), Knockraha Boss (25/1), Coolfighter (25/1), Make Up Your Mind (28/1), Cousin Pascal (33/1), Brogine (33/1)

Verdict

The step up in trip may have been the reason VIKING HOARD improved on his previous starts since March and connections step the gelding up in trip once again. The four-year-old was also well-backed before the race indicating a big run was on the cards. The former Jim Culloty-trained Matin D'anjou makes his stable debut here under Patrick Mullins and can make his presence felt here along with the in form Mill Quest, winner here earlier this month.
  1. Viking Hoard
  2. Matin D'Anjou
  3. Mill Quest
