611-12OR: D
11/4

121-rated hurdler and ran with promise on chasing debut before making a mistake two out which put paid to any chance he may have had. Could go well if jumping fluently.

611-12OR:
20/1

Modest 109-rated maiden hurdler who faces a tough introduction to chasing on debut here. Market to reveal expectations for the Getaway gelding.

711-12OR: C
6/1

Course winner that has also won over the trip. Sixth of 15 beaten 13L on chasing debut at the Galway festival and can be expected to improve for the baptism of fire there.

611-12OR:
66/1

Poor 93-rated maiden hurdler and first time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role on chasing debut.

511-12OR: D
4/5

145-rated hurdler and sets the standard here on chasing debut for leading owner and yard who have been hitting the bar at this meeting so far.

611-12OR:
11/1

Useful hurdler who will be worth a market check on chasing introduction here for a yard yet to get in to gear at this meeting.

511-12OR:
33/1

Modest hurdler rated 105 over timber. Appears to be well out of his depth here on chasing bow in this company.

511-12OR:
25/1

Beaten 40L on third chase start behind Abbey Magic in a Kilbeggan beginners contest last month. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.

Betting

Forecast

Le Richebourg (4/5), Arvico Bleu (11/4), Capital Force (5/1), Carrig Cathal (6/1), Poker Party (11/1), Buck A Trend (20/1), Successor (25/1), Punches Cross (33/1), Vinciaettis (50/1), Cloudybackwest (66/1)

Verdict

A clear round of jumping should see the Future Champions Novice hurdle runner-up behind Whiskey Sour, LE RICHEBOURG see off some average looking rivals here with the nearest rated pair over hurdles to the selection Capital Force and Carrig Cathal not exactly embracing the chasing discipline as of yet. Biggest danger could come form the Henry De Bromhead six-year-old Avirco Bleu who can improve for promising chasing introduction at Killarney recently.
