1
611-12OR:
50/1

Poor form in a couple of beginners starts to date and first time tongue-tie unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

511-12OR:
16/1

Four-race 116-rated maiden hurdler for Warren Greatrex. Only recently registered with new connections so difficult to gauge how much work has gone in to chasing debut.

Last RunWatch last race

611-12OR:
66/1

Well beaten in a couple of hunter chase start before only getting as far as the third in a Tipperary contest when last seen in May. Worth a market check.

811-12OR:
33/1

Winner of a Limerick hurdle over two years ago but has recently seen on the Flat as a modestly 61-rated handicapper. Well beaten on chasing introduction and appears well short of what is expected here.

511-12OR:
33/1

Blundered and unseated at the ninth on chasing debut at the Galway festival last month before a tired fall at the last at Ballinrobe recently. Hard to see him getting competitive in this company.

711-12OR:
25/1

Leading owner appears to have been extremely patient with this seven-year-old as he was last seen winning a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle over three years ago. Market likely to be the best guide here on interesting return.

Last RunWatch last race
7
611-12OR:
11/10

Promising novice hurdler who failed to fulfill expectations when pulling up and beaten 69L in a couple of contests at the start of the year. Expected to be fully chase-prepped for debut and worth a market check beforehand.

Last RunWatch last race

611-12OR:
80/1

Never a factor in a number of horrid performances since February including when refusing at the last on chasing introduction in March. First time tongue-tie doubtful to bring about the required amount of progress needed to play a role here.

711-12OR: 138
5/4

The promise hurdling career of two years ago failed to materialise with trainer-Alan King with chasing now very firmly on the agenda for new yard. Improvement on first run expected and leading player here.

Last RunWatch last race
10
511-5OR:
50/1

Well beaten and no impression in three hurdle starts and on chasing bow last month at Tramore. First time cheekpieces inconceivable to produce the required amount of development needed to play a role here.

611-5OR:
8/1

Filly was game to win Clonmel maiden in November on third start over hurdles before bombing out finishing last of 15 at Fairyhouse when last seen in April.

911-5OR:
66/1

Modest 68-rated hurdler winner of one of his 17 starts over timber and possibly best avoided on chasing graduation.

Betting

Forecast

Sympa Des Flos (11/10), Winter Escape (5/4), Manger Et Trotter (8/1), Clash Of D Titans (16/1), Portmore Lough (25/1), Hudson's Bay (33/1), Nikodam (33/1), Ballybrowney Walk (50/1), Bishops Quarter (50/1), Shantelle (66/1), Gotaway (66/1), Well Tom (80/1)

Verdict

The J P McManus owned WINTER ESCAPE appears to be the best of these despite the form of the race where the gelding finished second of 15 at the festival here, not working out. The Willie Mullins-trained six-year-old Sympa Des Flos could prove the biggest danger here while Manger Et Trotter can grab a place with Clash Of The Titans the potential dark horse of the race.
  1. Winter Escape
  2. Sympa Des Flos
  3. Clash Of D Titans
