511-12OR: 108
8/15

Appears to be improving with every start finishing fourth of 16 beaten 2½L in a Limerick maiden hurdle earlier this month. One to consider on recent displays.

811-12OR: 80
20/1

Has failed to hit the frame in 16 starts under Rules. Seventh of 14 well beaten 29L on seasonal bow in a Wexford handicap hurdle last month and others preferred.

711-12OR:
20/1

Beaten and well down the field in three dour maiden hurdle starts to date including a 172L defeat at Navan in March. Likely to struggle here.

611-5OR: 86
12/1

Well held in three maiden hurdle starts to date and first time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

611-5OR:
25/1

Appears here in first-time cheekpieces which are unlikely to encourage any improvement on a couple of disappointing maiden hurdle starts since May.

511-5OR:
4/1

Pushed along before two out on hurdling debut when beaten 17L in a Gowran Park last month. Place claims for top trainer/jockey combination.

511-5OR:
50/1

Nothing of note in a number of horrid maiden hurdle displays in her career including on sole start this season when 15th of 17 last month at Gowran Park. First-time cheekpieces unlikely to spark any improvement.

611-5OR: 86

Has shown relatively little in three career maiden hurdle starts and has yet to be sent off lower than 50/1. Others hold stronger profiles.

10-race maiden hurdler who, despite finishing positions has been well held on all three starts this season. May find this another tough assignment.

Betting

Forecast

Cheap And Cheerful (8/15), Holy Motivation (4/1), Superefficient (8/1), Absentee (12/1), Diggin Deep (20/1), Onthewayback (20/1), Go Complain (25/1), Randall's Aoibhinn (25/1), Noreaway (50/1)

Verdict

The J P McManus-owned CHEAP AND CHEERFUL can continue his improvement here by taking this contest. The Shirocco gelding can make a bold bid here following up on an eye-catching fourth of 16 beaten 2½L in a Limerick maiden hurdle earlier this month. Leading trainer/jockey combination Gordon Elliott and Davy Russell have a live chance with potential improver Holy Motivation and the daughter of Kalanisi can take advantage of any shortcomings from the selection.
