811-12OR: 109
14/1

Now 18 starts over fences without recording a win, never threatening to end that streak at Roscommon (2m5f, good) earlier this month. Hard to make case for.

Figures of 1332 over fences since mid-summer, latest when rallying well after being outplaced at Kelso (2m5½f, good to firm) off a mark of 112. Entitled to go well again with new cheekpieces on, having run sound race over timber at Clonmel recently.

Bounced back to form when winning similar contest at Ballinrobe (2m7f, soft to heavy) last month. Raised 5lb for his troubles.

1011-7OR: 104
8/1

Battle-hardened chaser who landed his second victory over fences in 34 starts in a Tramore 2m contest off a 4lb lower mark in August. Well held on soft-ground at Galway latest, may go better here.

Veteran who is without a win since 2015. Still capable of being competitive over both hurdles and fences from this sort of mark, but probably wise to look elsewhere for the winner after recent Clonmel effort.

Lightly-raced maiden, shown some appetite for this game in chase starts at Tramore (2m6f, good) and Sligo (2m5f, good) so far this autumn, albeit he has room for improvement with his jumping.

Runner-up at Killarney in August over 2m4f (good) on previous chase start off a mark of 102, has also been running consistently over timber since mid-summer. In the mix again.

Now 12-years-old, began life for new handler by scoring at Wexford (3m1f, good) in June off a mark of 82, has run four poor races since over similar trips and doesn't make significant appeal down in journey.

Teenager, won a 2m6f Tramore handicap chase in August, tends to go well there. Has changed yards since, rated 4lb higher now and market might reveal more on expectations.

6/1

Gallant veteran, just 3-46 over fences, but did show the fire still burns with front-running second at Galway last month. Allowed a handy time there, not one for maximum faith.

Betting

Forecast

Neddyvaughan (11/4), Oighear Dubh (4/1), Tomcoole Lad (6/1), Double Portrait (8/1), Bellgrove (8/1), Hitdroadjack (8/1), Old Supporter (12/1), Better B Quick (14/1), My Hometown (14/1), Coolmill (20/1)

Verdict

OIGHEAR DUBH has been in consistent form over fences since mid-summer and ran well over hurdles at Clonmel this month. He sports first-time cheekpieces here and, 3lb lower than his Kelso second over fences last month, is fancied to have a big say. The veteran Tomcoole Lad was allowed to dictate when winning at Galway last month and may not be afforded that now while Ballinrobe winner Double Portrait is another to consider. Neddyvaughan should also throw his hat in the ring back over fences.
