112-rated chaser when in the care of Jim Culloty who won on second start for new connections in a 2m4f Wexford chase last month off a 4lb lower mark. Rates a leading contender.

711-7OR: 101D
16/1

Winner of a 2m4f Tipperary handicap chase off a 6lb lower mark last month on good ground beating 15 rivals ½L. Won over this trip when hurdling and one to consider.

711-7OR: 116D
5/1

Distance winner of a Clonmel beginners chase on good ground in June beating 13 rivals ½L. Beaten since over hurdles but worth a market check back over fences.

911-3OR:
28/1

Eight-race maiden including six defeats over hurdles. Formerly with Alan King the gelding is having his fourth start for his current yard and possibly best watched on chasing bow.

611-3OR:
16/1

Seven-race maiden including four defeats over hurdles. 103-rated hurdler can go well on chasing debut but may find one or two sharper.

911-3OR: 105D
12/1

Useful 117-rated hurdler who is without a win in 13 starts over the larger obstacles. Last seen over fences 12-months ago and unlikely to play a part in the finish here.

811-3OR: D
6/1

Distance winner of a Wexford novice hurdle in 2016 following on from another win over the trip at Punchestown. Third of 14 beaten 1½L in a 2m Clonmel chase in June and likely to improve on second start over fences here.

711-3OR: D
5/1

Distance winner of a Cork maiden hurdle in May 2017. Well held in two chasing starts to date but is not easily dismissed if in better shape than last run at Tipperary.

811-3OR: D
20/1

Not fluent on chasing debut in a Kilbeggan beginners contest over 2m4f on soft ground finishing ninth of 14 well beaten 34 before only getting as far as the second at Clonmel in June. Market to be informative.

Betting

Forecast

Matin D'Anjou (11/10), Venezia (5/1), Special Diamond (5/1), Magna Cartor (6/1), Dawerann (12/1), Cesar Du Gouet (16/1), Oighear Dubh (16/1), The Brassmoulder (20/1), Bettatogether (28/1)

Verdict

MATIN D'ANJOU can get back to the form that saw him win a 2m4f Wexford chase last month following a tough ask at the Galway festival recently. The Robbie McNamara-trained six-year-old can see off the attentions of last time out winner, Oighear Dubh, distance winner Venezia and potential improver Dawerann.
