711-12OR: D
40/1

Useful 116-rated handicap hurdler, made belated chasing bow at Roscommon this month and had made some progress before coming to grief at three out. Best watched for now.

611-12OR:
2/1

121-rated hurdler, shown real promise in two starts over fences so far, including runner-up at Listowel (2m1f, yielding to soft) last month. Of interest here for in-form stable.

711-12OR: 125D
6/1

Likely to be popular in the betting but the gelding appears to have had plenty of chances to get off the mark over the larger obstacles and is likely to bump in to at least 'one' again.

611-12OR: D
9/10

Graded winner over hurdles at this trip and rated 140 in that sphere. One to note for Gigginstown and Gordon Elliott on return to action tackling fences for the first time.

611-12OR:
16/1

Fair over hurdles, set pace on chase bow at Down Royal in May (2m3½f, good) but made errors and unable to last home (third). Has scope for doing better over these obstacles back from summer break.

Betting

Forecast

Hardline (9/10), Arvico Bleu (2/1), Capital Force (6/1), Speaker Connolly (12/1), Stowaway Forever (16/1), All's Quiet (40/1)

Verdict

The opener may well go to Gigginstown but their duo are hard to separate. Hardline was the pick of these over hurdles and returns to action with Gordon Elliott's string firing. He's a graded winner over timber and much respected but ARVICO BLEU might get his measure. Henry De Bromhead's charge wasn't beaten far on chase bow at Listowel and the winner has given that form a boost. He can go one better. The selections stablemate Capital Force cannot be dismissed with any certainty.
