611-12OR: D
25/1

Just the one win over hurdles, from 11 starts, and has not shaped particularly well in two recent starts in that sphere. Goes chasing for the first time, market should reveal more.

511-12OR: C
9/1

Hurdles winner over 2m5f at Tramore in August, didn't shape badly on chase bow here 2m1f a fortnight ago (beaten just over 3L in fourth) and this longer trip could bring extra with that experience behind him.

511-12OR:
3/1

Good start over fences at Ballinrobe (2m7f, good to yielding) in August, flopped next time at Kilbeggan but more like it when second at Sligo (2m5f, good) recently. Cheekpieces added here and strong claims on form.

711-12OR:
25/1

3-24 record over hurdles, latest win over 2m4f at Limerick in July. Couple of poor efforts thereafter however, and well held a fortnight ago on the AW at Dundalk. Makes chasing debut here.

511-12OR:
7/2

Just a fair hurdler, jumping not always fluent on chase bow last month at Listowel in 2m6f soft-ground novice heat. Gets champion jockey on his back now, yard runs three in this.

511-12OR:
12/1

Modest hurdler rated 105 over timber. Appeared to be well out of his depth on chasing bow at Listowel last month behind Le Richebourg and looks least likely of three for the yard here.

611-12OR: C
6/1

Poor form when switching to handicap hurdles but could be a different proposition on chasing debut here. Market likely to reveal expectations on first outing in this sphere.

511-5OR:
33/1

Well beaten in a Listed bumper at Limerick and similar tale in hurdles starts either side of a six-month layoff. Possibly needed comeback run at Kilbeggan last month, will be jumping fences for the first time now.

410-10OR:
5/2

Runner-up on chase debut here (2m1f, good) a fortnight ago, jumping well in the main and just being worn down by the winner late on. Up in trip and one worth considering now.

Betting

Forecast

Moonball (5/2), Ballybrowney Jack (3/1), Border Control (7/2), Touch Base (6/1), Famous Day (8/1), Ashjan (9/1), Punches Cross (12/1), All Good Things (25/1), Black Label (25/1), Alice Johnston (33/1)

Verdict

Joseph O'Brien has a big say here, with three runners, and his BALLYBROWNEY JACK earns the nod after two positive efforts in three starts over fences. He was runner-up last time at Sligo behind an experienced rival and looks the pick of the yard's three with a repeat of that effort. Stablemate Border Control, with the champion jockey booked, is not discounted after a fair start at Listowel over fences while Moonball showed more than enough on debut here (second) to merit consideration upped in journey.
