511-12OR:
100/1

Lightly raced maiden who has been well beaten on all four career starts to date. Looks a long-term prospect.

511-12OR:
40/1

May improve on debut start over the larger obstacles in a Galway beginners contest last month when sixth of 12 beaten 26L.

Last RunWatch last race
3
511-12OR:
9/2

Beaten a nose on handicap debut at Navan in March before a disappointing run at Punchestown over hurdles when last seen in May. Worth a market check on debut over fences.

511-12OR:
100/1

Gelding by Kingsalsa out of a Passing Sale mare, not shown enough in any of his three hurdle starts so far to warrant support here on debut over fences.

911-12OR:
66/1

Nothing of note in three dismal displays over fences since june. Likely to struggle here dropping in trip.

611-12OR:
25/1

120-rated hurdler Who won a Tipperary handicap hurdle in May. Market likely to reveal expectations on chasing introduction.

511-12OR:

Pushed along before three out on chasing debut at Kilbeggan when last seen in April. Needs to improve significantly here.

611-12OR:
13/8

Progressive through the early months of the season, taking a 2m4f soft ground Leopardstown handicap hurdle by ¾L in December 2017. Likely to be a warm order on chasing bow here.

Last RunWatch last race

811-12OR:
16/1

127-rated handicap hurdler who has not been disgraced in three starts over the summer. One to consider on first start over fences.

1011-12OR: CD
16/1

Winner of three of his five starts here over hurdles and always gives his all either on the Flat or over timber. Place claims.

611-12OR:

Will have disappointed leading connections when beaten over hurdles recently. Needs to settle better in races but a leading contender on chasing debut here.

611-12OR:

Never a factor in a number of horrid performances since February including when refusing at the last on chasing introduction in March.

1111-12OR:

Not seen on the track for over four years before finishing seventh of eight at Roscommon in August. Others preferred.

33/1

Filly was game to win Clonmel maiden in November on third start over hurdles. Well adrift of the winner on chasing introduction at Galway last month. Looks vulnerable in this company.

611-5OR:
33/1

Highly tried at Listed and Graded level since the turn of the year but faces tough opposition on his second start over the larger obstacles.

711-12OR:

First Reserve: Largely modest form in a number of point-to-point starts and unlikely to play a part in the finish on chasing debut here.

Betting

Forecast

Voix Du Reve (13/8), Mind's Eye (13/8), Dis Donc (9/2), Indian Monsoon (6/1), Portmore Lough (14/1), Stormey (16/1), Top Othe Ra (16/1), Mon Lino (20/1), Golden Jewel (25/1), Minnies Secret (33/1), Manger Et Trotter (33/1), Timmie Roe (33/1), Punches Cross (33/1), Clash Of D Titans (40/1), Fruits Of Glory (66/1), It Has To Be (66/1), Golden Sunset (66/1), Well Tom (100/1), Where's Me Jumper (100/1), Drole D'Artiste (100/1), Around The Block (100/1)

Verdict

With those with experience over the larger obstacles looking bereft of any ability it may be worth siding with the likes of the 141-rated hurdler VOIX DE REVE to land the spoils on debut over fences from fellow debutante, Mind's Eye from the Henry De Bromhead yard and the Noel Meade-trained Dis Donc. Game and gutsy veteran Top Othe Ra makes his chasing debut here and is not without chance.
