10/1

Fair hurdler, won final two starts last year, and has the stamina for this trip. Held in two starts at Wexford and Cork this term and remains 7lb above previous winning mark.

Three-time hurdles winner after joining this handler in 2016, but has raced sparingly since then and mostly been laboured efforts. Blinkers added this time but plenty to prove having been pulled up at Downpatrick last month.

Three-time hurdles winner, ran fair race at Limerick (2m, good) latest. Not certain to want this trip, but worth paying attention to in betting just the same.

Mare won at Sligo in May over similar trip on good to yielding ground, twice held since at Wexford and Cork from this increased mark and needs to pull out a bit more it seems.

12/1

Maiden, some promise show this year over fences on testing ground but failed to build on that recently at Tipperary (2m4f, good) back over timber and doesn't appeal here despite being eased a couple of pounds.

610-6OR: 96
16/1

Maiden after 17 starts under rules, beaten 24L in C&D maiden hurdle and in May and fared worse in handicap at Tramore last month. Uphill task on form.

59-12OR: 82
11/8

Much improved effort in winning 10-runner handicap hurdle at Limerick (2m2f, good) just five days ago, penalised for that success but interesting to see if it can be built upon.

3/1

Much-improved in previous two starts, money was down at Down Royal (2m4f, good) last month but could only take second, similar effort in third over 2m6f at Limerick five days ago off this mark. Needs considering.

Lightly-raced maiden under rules, doesn't boast any sort of form that warrants selection here off a 204-day absence.

Betting

Forecast

Epsilon Indi (11/8), Viking Hoard (3/1), Humm Baby (6/1), Antimatter (10/1), Veneziano Springs (12/1), My Direction (12/1), Iusetaluvheronce (16/1), Linger (25/1), Tungsten Kid (50/1)

Verdict

Epsilon Indi did things well enough at Limerick on Sunday and was clearly expected to go well by the market. He was though given a soft enough lead and, while respected, could be vulnerable under a 6lb penalty if things play out different now. VIKING HOARD is another that has produced improved form of late and Charles Byrnes' seems sure to notch a win somewhere soon after good runs at Down Royal and Limerick. My Direction and Antimatter are considered for place purposes.
  1. Viking Hoard
  2. Epsilon Indi
  3. My Direction
