14/1

Promising second at Ballinrobe (2m6f, good) in a seven runner contest last time out. Races off a 1lb higher mark and of interest back down in trip.

Back to form when finishing third over an extended 1m4f at Down Royal (good-to-firm) recently. Blinkers worn for the first time that day are absent on his return to hurdles.

Winner of both starts since joining this yard. Latest success came on good-to-yielding ground at Galway at the weekend and he looks likely to prove hard to beat under a penalty.

Successful over 2m on good ground here last month. Struggled on softer ground at Galway subsequently and interesting back on a sound surface.

Returning from a break when finishing fifth over fences at Down Royal (2m, good) in May. Returning from a further break and worth a check in the market.

Finished a close second at Fairyhouse (2m4f, soft-to-heavy) on debut for this yard in April. Fell the following month and best efforts have come on ground much softer than is forecast for this event.

Decent effort in finishing third in a 2m handicap hurdle here last month. This looks more competitive however and he is vulnerable to less exposed rivals.

Struggled in the main over hurdles last year and regressed since returning to the Flat this year. Wears cheekpieces for the first time and market support would be interesting back over obstacles.

Betting

Forecast

Castlehume (1/1), Pass The Ball (7/2), Global Fert (13/2), Presenting Mahler (8/1), Fearachain (14/1), Mr Boss Man (16/1), Gentleman Duke (20/1), Creeping Ivy (20/1), Lambs Lane (20/1), Black Benny (33/1), Bitview Colin (33/1)

Verdict

CASTLEHUME can complete an August double by taking this handicap hurdle contest. The Galway winner has the trip and ground in his favour and can see off Pass The Ball who is bidding to complete a hat-trick. Third place can go the way of Gentleman Duke who has a top jockey in the saddle on this occasion.
