911-12OR: 109
33/1

Lightly raced gelding who was having his first run for over 18-months when finishing ninth of 17 beaten 26L on stable debut. Plenty more needed in this group.

One from two over hurdles but has not been seen since finishing 18L adrift of the winner of a 2m4f chase at Kilbeggan in September last year. Improvement needed on return to timber.

Won a hurdle race in testing conditions at Down Royal almost a year ago but hasn't looked like adding to his tally in five chases for a new connections. Needs to improve significantly.

Third of nine when chasing latest but his second of 13 beaten ½L in a Bellewstown 3m handicap hurdle last month puts him right in the mix here for leading trainer/jockey combination.

Distance winner of a Kilbeggan handicap hurdle 12-months ago off a 10lb lower mark. Second of nine at Limerick last month but handicapper raises him again.

C&D winner here in June on good ground in a handicap hurdle off a 5lb lower mark. Clearly in grand form right now and a leading player here with notable jockey booking.

911-9OR: 106D

Winner over hurdles and the larger obstacles last month failing to win for a third time when finishing 13L adrift of the winner of a 3m Limerick handicap hurdle. Place claims with adept claimer in the plate.

911-7OR: 104
50/1

Winner of four of his 21 starts over hurdles but with the last win coming in November 2015 off a 3lb higher mark the gelding appears to be regressing of late suffering heavy defeats since May.

not much to shout about in a number of desolate displays in the last 18-months including a couple of crushing defeats since May. Hard to place any faith in.

Solid and gutsy gelding who deserves a change of luck following a run of three runner-up positions in handicap hurdles since June. Entitled to make the shortlist here.

9/1

Modest 102-rated handicap hurdler for Suzy Smith two years ago and remains a 24-race maiden over timber, though his recent head defeat at Kilbeggan puts him in the mix.

711-2OR: 99D
25/1

This year's point-to-point form, including one victory, amounts to little but confirms a preference for a sound surface as proved by finishing third of nine on good ground at Limerick last month. Open to plenty of improvement.

611-1OR: 98BFD
9/1

Distance winner who was beaten favourite last month in a Kilbeggan handicap hurdle over 3m1f on good ground when finishing a disappointing fourth of nine beaten 2½L. Worth noting in the betting.

Beaten favourite when disappointing at Tipperary in May over 3m. Defeat was attributed to a wayward shoe so is deserving of consideration based on previous effort at Punchestown.

Nothing to note in the latter stages of last year and below par form continued at Ballinrobe last month. Out of sorts and this looks a tough ask.

60L defeat at Wexford apart the gelding deserves respect following a couple of solid displays at Punchestown and Downpatrick in May. Can make a bold bid in this company.

Second Reserve: Got off the mark at the sixth time of asking in a Tipperary handicap hurdle last month over this trip beating 19 rivals by over 2L. Likely to run well once again.

Forecast

Floramar (4/1), Goodnightngodbless (6/1), Persian Wind (15/2), Ourmanmassini (9/1), About You (9/1), Running In Heels (10/1), Crown Of Thorns (10/1), Rueben James (11/1), Arch Stanton (12/1), Canny Tom (14/1), Carole Rose (14/1), Tyrrell's Succes (16/1), Whatever It Takes (16/1), Citizen Al (20/1), Batchelors Walk (25/1), Sir Ector (25/1), The Brig (25/1), Odit (33/1), Freedom Statue (33/1), Redclue (50/1), From Eden (66/1)

Verdict

The form of FLORAMAR win here over C&D in June appears to working out well following the win of the runner-up that day, Lizzies Champ, winning on the final day of the Galway festival on Sunday. The booking of jockey, Barry Geraghty can only add to the chances of the gelding here. The selection may have to see off the attentions of Ourmanmassini, Goodnightngodbless and Persian Wind, while About You and Carole Rose can go well at bigger prices.
