511-12OR: C
11/4

Point-to-point winner on soft ground in March last year and off the mark at the second attempt for this yard when winning a bumper over 2m3f on good ground here last month. One for the shortlist on hurdling debut.

511-12OR: C
6/1

Ran well to finish runner-up over C&D on good ground in June. Failed to replicate that form in two subsequent starts and a return to this venue (also won a bumper here) may see him return to form.

66/1

Unraced son of Double Eclipse purchased for €3,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to the useful Captain Von Trappe and worth a check in the market on debut.

611-4OR:
20/1

Held on all three starts over hurdles including on good ground at Punchestown in June. More needed if he's to take this contest.

711-4OR:
66/1

Placed in a couple of bumpers for Willie Mullins in 2016 and 2017. Struggled on debut for this yard in a maiden hurdle at Bellewstown (good-to-firm) last month and wears a tongue tie for the first time.

411-1OR:
4/7

Finished a close third in a 1m6f bumper at Argentan (good-to-soft) on sole start in France last October. Joined a top yard and looks likely to play a leading role on hurdling debut.

Betting

Forecast

Eclat Des Mottes (4/7), Present In Court (11/4), Turbo (6/1), Orleefa (10/1), Sonowyouno (20/1), Feagreen Native (66/1), West Burma (66/1)

Verdict

ECLAT DES MOTTES is taken to make a winning debut over hurdles following a good run on his sole start in bumpers in France. The selection represents a leading stable and can see off Present In Court who can finish runner-up on his first start over hurdles. Third place can go the way of the unraced Feagreen Native who is a half-brother to a useful performer.
