611-12OR:
66/1

Winner of three races on the Flat in France but struggled since joining this yard and probably best watched with a tongue tie worn for the first time.

1/8

Point-to-point winner broke his maiden under Rules when winning a 2m3f bumper at Downpatrick (good) in June. Step up in trip should suit and likely to prove hard to beat on hurdling debut.

511-4OR:
9/1

Improved markedly on sole start in 2017 when finishing 19L fourth in a Ballinrobe (good) bumper recently. Interesting stepping up in distance on hurdles debut.

611-4OR:
40/1

Raced prominently but ultimately finished well beaten in a Ballinrobe (good) bumper on debut last month. Probably best watched on first start over hurdles.

510-11OR:
8/1

Good efforts in finishing fourth in two maiden hurdles so far. First of those came over 3m at Wexford (good) in June and she is likely to run her race once more.

510-11OR:
25/1

Running well prior to falling on hurdling debut at Cork (3m, heavy) in January. Not run to that level of form in two subsequent starts but better ground forecast here may see her in a better light.

510-11OR:
40/1

Held in two point-to-points and has failed to figure in three starts under Rules. Well beaten in a Galway bumper recently and others hold stronger claims.

Betting

Forecast

Stay Humble (1/8), Eimear (8/1), Mujadel (9/1), Esthers Marvel (25/1), Huckleberry Hill (40/1), Niamh's Oscar (40/1), Olive D'haguenet (66/1)

Verdict

STAY HUMBLE can make a winning hurdling debut by taking this staying maiden contest. The selection has run to a good level in bumpers so far and can get the better of Eimear who ran well in a similar race to this on her penultimate outing. Mujadel finish third following a good run in a bumper last time.
  1. Stay Humble
  2. Eimear
  3. Mujadel
