511-10OR:
14/1

Flemensfirth gelding out of a Be My Native mare. Half-brother to the likes of Tidal Bay, Imperial Commander and Kimberlite Candy. Not seen since finishing 42L adrift of the winner of a Limerick maiden hurdle in December.

Plenty to like about his second of 14 running Falk to ¾L in a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle last month. Likable type who should be in the mix here.

Nine-race maiden hurdler, well held in three starts this term and well below-par form looks set to continue in this company.

511-8OR: 94

Never a factor in four career starts to date and first time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

511-8OR:
100/1

Well beaten and no impression in a couple of dismal spins to date and requires a chunk of improvement to land a blow here.

511-8OR:

Last of ten, tailed off beaten 110L in a Downpatrick bumper when last seen in May. Hard to fancy on hurdling debut.

411-8OR:

Too keen on second bumper start failing to build on the promise shown on debut at Sligo in July. Improvement expected here.

10/1

Has been generally inconsistent in a number of starts since May but showed plenty of promise in a Tramore 2m maiden hurdle last month. Improvement needed once again.

A couple of poor bumper starts in the spring can be dismissed as the Vinnie Roe gelding makes his hurdling debut here. Market to be informative.

411-4OR: BF
25/1

Fourth of 13 at 100/1 in a Tramore contest before disappointing as beaten favourite at Bellewstown last month. Unlikely to play a part in the finish here.

411-4OR:
33/1

Not disgraced on debut in a Tramore 2m maiden hurdle last month on good ground. Looks a progressive type and worth a market check.

511-1OR:

Distance winner of a 2m½f bumper at the Galway festival last month. Market likely to be the best guide on hurdling introduction here.

611-1OR: 92
16/1

Remains a maiden after 14 hurdle runs but hinted there was light at the end of the tunnel when finishing second of 15 beaten 1¼L in a Tramore maiden hurdle last month. Needs to be a little more consistent before consideration.

511-1OR:
8/1

Fairly useful in the point-to-point ranks and not disgraced in a trio of competitive maiden hurdles recently. Plenty of scope for improvement in this company and worth as market check.

Betting

Forecast

Court Maid (5/2), Whatsafellatodo (9/2), Vinnie The Hoddie (5/1), Its All A Lark (8/1), Just A Boy (9/1), Knock On Steel (10/1), The Reaping Race (14/1), Famous Day (16/1), Caveat Emptor (20/1), Sir Tivo (25/1), Beale Beach (25/1), Stubborn Logic (33/1), Frankly All Talk (40/1), Disco Musik (100/1)

Verdict

Winner of a competitive bumper at the Galway festival last month, Court Maid and the expected to improve, Just A Boy with the trainer/jockey combination of Gordon Elliott and Davy Russell in his favour, can make their presence felt here in this maiden hurdle. The pair may have to settle for the minor places as the improving WHATSAFELLATODO is taken to land the spoils here following his second behind the useful Falak last month.
  1. Whatsafellatodo
  2. Court Maid
