1011-2OR: 149D
14/1

Last spotted running fair race in the Grand Annual at Cheltenham in March, though hasn't won since collecting that prize in 2017. Can't be ruled out if stripping fit enough.

Useful horse on his day but failed to complete over fences the last twice including at the Cheltenham Festival in March. Tailed off over hurdles at Tipperary this month.

More than useful chaser on his day, with 7-26 record, has been asked some tough questions since joining this yard from Willie Mullins but didn't make any inroads at Punchestown in May when given a more straightforward task.

Didn't get home in the Irish National at Fairyhouse then well-beaten last of nine behind Un De Sceaux in Boylesports Champion Chase at Punchestown over this trip. Big task again.

Winner at Fairyhouse in April but the handicapper caught up with him after that, likely playing for minor honours here.

Won three times from seven attempts as a novice over fences in Britain last year for Dan Skelton, fit from recent outings on the Flat having joined this yard. Capable of further improvement in this discipline.

C&D last winner last summer. Much the best of efforts since came when close second at Punchestown last month and interesting player if building on that run.

Betting

Forecast

Azzuri (2/1), Bel Ami De Sivola (9/4), Ballyoisin (5/2), Our Dougal (7/2), Tell Us More (10/1), Devils Bride (12/1), Don't Touch It (12/1), Rock The World (14/1), Rightville Boy (33/1)

Verdict

The progressive BALLYOISIN has been imperious in his two most recent starts and earns the vote to win this race for the second year running, despite conceding weight in all directions. Former C&D scorer Our Dougal was back on song last time out and can get involved on that evidence while Azzuri has some decent novice form in Britain over fences and is primed fit after three Flat runs for his new handler. Rock The World and Bel Ami De Sivola will have a chance on their best form.
