Improved on return from a break when finishing 1L third over 3m1f at Kilbeggan (good) in June. Not as good next time at Tipperary and point to prove now back down in distance.

Consistent performer, finished a good second at Roscommon in June before a disappointing display at Cork on fast ground since. Entitled to each-way claims here on form.

Well beaten and generally disappointing in two maiden hurdle starts in April and again on good ground at Listowel over 2m in June. With a good trainer and reverts to handicaps now. Worth a betting check.

Back to form from out of the blue in June at Uttoxeter over 2m4f having been given plenty to do but finding well from pressure. Since run fair third at Cartmel and races from an 8lb lower mark back in this country.

Won a heavy-ground handicap at Limerick over similar trip in December (rated 87) but went backwards in three starts over timber in early 2018 and must bounce back in first outing since March.

Placed at Fairyhouse on heavy ground back in February. Pulled up subsequently however and making his handicap debut on his first start since finishing well beaten over hurdles at Tipperary in May.

Hasn't finished within hailing distance in four starts over timber so far, all in maiden company, steps up in trip for handicap bow and must find marked improvement.

Modest 49-rated handicapper on the Flat and no impact in three maiden hurdles so far, latest a 63L defeat at Cork (2m3f, soft to heavy) in April. Makes handicap debut in this sphere.

Generally a disappointing sort who needs a big turnaround in fortunes to play a role in this, easily beaten over 2m at Down Royal in May.

Went close with career-best at Wexford (2m, good) early last month in finishing close second. Not as good since at Limerick but cannot be crossed off with confidence. Hood added.

Minor improvement in fourth maiden hurdle when stepped up to 2m2½f at Downpatrick last time, though still finished 20L adrift. Up again in trip for handicap bow and plenty more needed.

Tailed off on all four starts under rules and showed little ability for previous connections, similar tale on bow for this trainer last month at Limerick over 2m6f on good to firm. May be fitter now, but still an uphill task.

Lightly-raced nine-year-old has had his problems but going the right way in four start over timber this season, making the frame recently at Roscommon (3m, good) and Ballinrobe (2m6f, good). Could have a race like this in him, down in trip.

Will have disappointed immediate connections in a number of desolate displays over hurdles since May and unlikely to play a part in the finish here following another poor show at Roscommon last month.

Remains a maiden after 22 attempts under rules, well held last month at Wexford and Cork and likely the famine goes on again.

Point-to-point winner but still a maiden after 23 starts under Rules. His better efforts have largely come on softer ground and others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Joly Maker (7/2), Bomber Jackson (5/1), Time Is Time (7/1), Celtic Monarch (8/1), I'm Serious (8/1), Loch Luatha (10/1), The Ballyboys (10/1), Ardview Boy (14/1), Global Tour (16/1), The Rebel Knight (16/1), Aunt Eileen (16/1), The Brig (16/1), See Double You (16/1), Backintheboom (20/1), La Belle De Paris (20/1), Make Up Your Mind (25/1), Pegi Browne (28/1), Fly De Megaudais (28/1), Gimli's Oscar (33/1)

Verdict

Not a contest to be getting heavily involved with seemingly but a chance is given to TIME IS TIME, who has shaped with more promise recently at Roscommon and Ballinrobe. He's lightly-raced for his age and, on those efforts, is well worth trying again over a short distance in his current mood. Joly Maker went close at Wexford last month and could bounce back from a less inspiring effort since if the hood has an effect. Celtic Monarch, a winner at Uttoxeter in June, has run well since in England and gets in here on a workable mark while the handicap debutant The Rebel Knight is worth a market check and could improve.
