Distance winner of a Down Royal maiden hurdle back in March getting off the mark over timber at the 17th time of asking. Rates a leading contender here.

Three wins from 16 hurdle starts and has shown decent form this season finishing runner-up on two occasions at Clonmel and Wexford in May. One to consider in this company.

8/1

Winner of two of his four hurdle starts this term including a ¾L defeat of St Lawrence Gap last month. Life more difficult off new mark but very much a leading player here.

811-3OR: 116CD
7/1

Won over both hurdles and fences during the last calendar year including a win over C&D in April off a 1lb lower mark. Worth considering if forgiving last run at the Galway festival earlier this month.

511-1OR: 114
40/1

Winner over hurdles in France but will have disappointed connections in a couple of dismal displays since last month for new yard. First-time hood unlikely to improve the mare.

12/1

Winner of two of her 12 spins over hurdles the most recent coming in a 2m Limerick handicap on soft ground in October off a 6lb lower mark. Each way chances if forgiving last tough ask at the Galway festival earlier this month.

Has produced a number of laboured runs for connections since last month and it is hard to see him making any significant impact here.

4/1

Comes here on a hat-trick of wins following a couple of victory's at Downpatrick last month. Racing off a 7lb higher mark than first win the gelding is not ruled out here.

410-1OR: 105CD
7/4

Busy gelding who found a contest at the Galway festival last month one question too many but the C&D winner has conditions to suit here and could take some stopping in current form.

8/1

C&D winner in June beating nine rivals off a 3lb lower mark. Beaten since but dangerous if building on victory here.

Betting

Forecast

Ingleby Mackenzie (7/4), Touchedbyanangel (4/1), Icario (11/2), Just Get Cracking (7/1), Icelip (8/1), One In All In (8/1), Drakaina (12/1), Touch Of Gold (16/1), Russellstown (20/1), Mr Picotee (25/1), Shakadame (40/1)

Verdict

Distance winner and potential improver ICARIO can add to his maiden hurdle win at Down Royal in March here by landing the spoils from the top of the weights. Distance winner Mr Picotee, C&D winner Just Get Cracking and last time out winner Touchedbyanangel can hit the frame. Ingleby Mackenzie and One In All In should not be easily dismissed.
