511-7OR:
40/1

A 29-race Flat maiden, sent off 100/1 on hurdles bow at Galway in August (2m½f, good to yielding) and came home a long way off the leader (28L). Improvement needed.

Best efforts on the Flat have come on the AW at Dundalk, proving less effective on turf. Well held in a 2m Tramore maiden in August on sole previous try over timber.

511-7OR:
4/1

Has finished second in all three starts in maiden hurdles so far, latest at Navan (2m, good to firm) 12 days ago having gone off favourite. Likely going to break duck sooner rather than later.

511-7OR:
100/1

Slight improvement on second start over timber at Kilbeggan in June, had won on the Flat in Britain for Hughie Morrison, but must improve back from a break.

511-7OR:
1/1

Famous Name gelding, cost €25,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to two winners and dam a half-sister to Group 3 winner Best Fouad and Listed winner Rawyaan. Won on his only Flat start in October for previous connections. Looks interesting.

511-7OR:
25/1

Placed on the Flat on the continent and ran well when finishing third over an extended 1m5f at Ballinrobe on debut for this yard before finishing down the field at the Galway Festival. Any market move should be noted.

511-7OR:
14/1

0-4 over hurdles but much-improved when runner-up at Roscommon (2m, good) in June, has to be considered on that showing and race-fit coming here from Flat run at Dundalk.

511-7OR:
3/1

Winner of two bumpers at Sligo and Listowel early in the summer, drops back to 2m for this hurdling bow and likely has plenty to say for himself.

511-7OR:
66/1

Regressing 62-rated handicapper on the Flat and an 11-race maiden in that sphere, unable to land a blow earlier in the week on hurdling bow at Roscommon.

511-7OR:
14/1

Modest 78-rated handicapper on the Flat winning one of his eight starts on the level. Picked up place money (third) on hurdles bow at Wexford (2m, good to yielding) last month.

511-0OR:
150/1

Filly by Arcadio out of a Eurobus mare. Half-sister to winners The Game Changer and Flying Angel. Beat only one rival home on debut at Listowel last month and seems best watched for now.

Betting

Forecast

Panther Soul (1/1), The Red Menace (3/1), Hyperdrive (4/1), Tenth Amendment (14/1), Winston Wolfe (14/1), Misty Mountain (16/1), Party Playboy (25/1), Da Vinci Rock (25/1), Challow (40/1), Getgo (66/1), Uno Momento (66/1), King Of Scotland (100/1), Low Web (150/1)

Verdict

HYPERDRIVE looks just about the most appealing on the early betting. Jessica Harrington's runner settled for second at Navan last time behind a useful rival in a big field and has potential to go well again. Flat winner Panther Soul is an obvious danger starting life with Willie Mullins while The Red Menace is already 2-2 in bumpers and can go well if handling the obstacle and a drop in distance.
