611-8OR: 116D
11/4

Comes here on the back of two very impressive wins at Kilbeggan and Listowel this month. 13lb higher than first win but likely to improve again.

3/1

Solid and consistent finishing positions since May including a well deserved win at Downpatrick last month over this trip off a 4lb lower mark. Another bold show looks likely.

Plenty to like about his second of 16 beaten 1¾L in a Roscommon maiden hurdle in July but is generally inconsistent and difficult to trust. Worth a market check on first start for yard.

2/1

Will be popular in the market from leading yard and following a head win in a Limerick maiden hurdle when last seen in July. Up in trip and a leading player.

Failed to build on a fine run at Sligo in May with a couple of heavy defeats since. Needs to improve to have a say here.

Beaten a little over 2L over a similar trip in May but well beaten in a couple of drab displays either side of the run. Others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Irish Lass (2/1), Brex Drago (11/4), Paris Texas (3/1), Stacks Mountain (4/1), First Class Ticket (14/1), Licklighter (18/1), Im Waiting (25/1)

Verdict

The recent form of BREX DRAGO is hard to resist and the in form six-year-old can continue his improvement here at the expense of the Willie Mullins-trained Irish Lass, who return from a two month break and the J P McManus-owned Paris Texas who got off the mark at the eighth time of asking at Downpatrick last month.
