712-1OR: 121D
7/2

Winner of one of his 12 chases and well held in three starts this year. One to note in the betting now back on a winning mark.

7/1

Plenty to like about his seasonal reappearance when staying on under hands and heels to finish fifth of 14 in a Clonmel beginner contest last month. Looks a progressive type and shortlisted here.

1010-11OR: 103D
12/1

Distance winner who has badly been out of form for some time including three heavy defeats over the larger obstacles since April. Plenty more needed.

25/1

Hurdling latest but well behind in a number of disappointing beginners chases' since March. Hard to fancy on evidence to hand. First-time cheekpieces unlikely to make much difference.

33/1

Finished eighth of 14 beaten 46L in May, his first completion over fences in four attempts. Hard to place any faith in.

6/1

Beaten favourite on seasonal return in a Tramore handicap chase last month finishing a disappointing seventh of 16 beaten 25L behind Model Cloud. Worth a note in the betting once again.

Generally well held in three seasonal handicap chase starts. Well below-par form looks set to continue here.

Close fourth at Kilbeggan around this time last year but recent efforts lacking and he looks an unlikely winner in this company.

Trainer has brought the son of Beneficial back bouncing with a hurdle second at Ballinrobe before winning a Downpatrick handicap chase last month. 8lb rise unlikely to stop the gelding in this company.

109-10OR: 88
33/1

Has failed to finish three of his last five starts over fences and requires a chunk of improvement to play a role here.

Betting

Forecast

Fairymount Boy (6/4), Lake Takapuna (7/2), Das Mooser (6/1), Bendanella (7/1), Bellgrove (12/1), Hard Bought (25/1), Sierra Law (25/1), Burning Issues (33/1), Jonathan Wild (33/1), House Limit (50/1)

Verdict

Trainer Michael Hourigan has FAIRYMOUNT BOY in fine form at the moment and it appears it will take a lot more than an 8lb rise in the weights to stop the improving nine-year-old on his way to landing the prize here. Last time out beaten favourite, Das Mooser in first time tongue-tie and Lake Takapuna on stable debut can battle for the minors.
  1. Fairymount Boy
