611-12OR:

Easy winner on sole point-to-point outing, then fifth of 10 in bumper at Tipperary (2m2f, good to soft) in May on rules bow. Should have future over jumps.

13/8

Second 2017 Cheltenham Festival Bumper and followed up with Listed win at Limerick. Finished ninth in Supreme Novices' Hurdle before falling when still in contention in Grade 1 at Punchestown in April. Disappointing at Galway since, has ability.

Well held in two bumper starts for trainer-Olly Murphy and has failed to impress in three starts since going hurdling with this yard, has improvement to locate.

One of the more experienced but therefore exposed runners here. Others look to be more progressive types after another fair effort at Galway last month.

11/10

Fair bumper performer who hasn't far away at all on hurdling debut at Fairyhouse in November. Took a heavy fall a month later at Leopardstown having gone off strong favourite and duly put away by the champion trainer. Respected on return.

Picked up current connections for £60,000 after finishing runner-up in maiden on point debut in the spring. In excellent hands and has positive jockey booking for this rules debut.

Stowaway gelding. Dam an above average hurdler, winner at 2m-2m4f over hurdles/chase. Worth a second look on debut.

511-12OR:
33/1

Useful Flat winner for Eve Johnson Houghton, rated 90, but has failed to show much in pair of starts over timber so far, including when strong in the market at Cork in January. Clearly too soon to dismiss, jumping needs to improve.

511-12OR:

Couple of fairly promising efforts so far in bumpers, switches attention to jumps now and is worth a glance in the betting.

Betting

Forecast

Quick Grabim (11/10), Debuchet (13/8), Bakmaj (6/1), Spyglass Hill (12/1), Only Whispers (14/1), Toulson (33/1), Pass Hymn (33/1), Strong Current (50/1), Whatsyourstatus (66/1), Crimson Chief (66/1), Owl Creek Bridge (66/1), Dunkereen (66/1), Native Place (100/1)

Verdict

Debuchet was disappointing last month at Galway but he sets the standard just the same and a drop in trip might be the answer for him. That said, stablemate QUICK GRABIM has plenty potential of his own and has been given plenty time to get over last season's mishap at Leopardstown. His jumping will be more assured now, likely, and he could make a successful return. Spyglass Hill is a notable newcomer for Henry De Bromhead while useful bumper performer Bakmaj also has plenty scope for improvement.
