Point-to-point winner, landed a bumper here in February (2m, soft) on rules bow, not as good two further outings but likely sort now returning to start jumps career.

Gelding by Robin De Pres out of a Un Desperado mare. Half-brother to Petit Robin. Unimpressive both starts over timber so far, plenty to work on.

Travelled with more purpose at Downpatrick (2m5½f, good) recently in maiden hurdle, before flailing late on. Not beyond the realms there will be more to come down to 2m.

Runner-up in Killarney bumper in May (beaten 14L but clear of the remainder). Returns to start hurdling career with yard in good tune, one to pay attention to.

Half-brother to winners Weslike (2m6f chase) & Direct Exit (bumper); dam pulled up six starts in Irish points. Tailed off at Clonmel in 2m1f good-ground maiden hurdle on debut this month.

A half-brother to useful hurdler/smart chaser Runswick Royal, he was picked up for €50,000 by connections. 66/1, never a threat and pulled up on hurdles bow at Ballinrobe in May, off since.

Salutino gelding. Dam lightly raced in points. Pulled up in a point-to-point on debut in the spring, returns for rules bow and likely to benefit from this experience.

Gelding by Doyen out of a Fruits Of Love mare. Cost €33,000 as a three-year-old and half-brother to Kumbeshwar. Needs to improve on maiden hurdle efforts at Listowel and Roscommon so far.

A €16,000 Shantou gelding. Dam, maiden on Flat and half-sister to smart hurdler Border Castle. Worth a market check on debut.

Oscar filly out of a Gildoran mare. Half-sister to the likes of Big Zeb and Rock On Ruby. Trailed home last of 17 on debut in Listowel bumper last month. Improvement needed going jumping.

Unconvincing in bumpers and beaten 34L on hurdles bow at Downpatrick (2m2½f, good) recently, must improve markedly to get competitive.

Betting

Forecast

Sometime Soon (2/5), Jan Maat (11/4), The Shunter (7/1), Ishyaboi (10/1), Just A Boy (10/1), Tournois (14/1), Klassy Kay (33/1), Shantou Warrior (33/1), Beltrame (50/1), Our Seamus (50/1), A Dos No Bueno (66/1), An Droichead Gorm (66/1), Paddy Melia (66/1), Kates Jewel (66/1), Jaydoubleyoucee (66/1)

Verdict

A race won 12-months ago by the ill-fated Fayonagh, trainer Gordon Elliott now aims hurdling newcomer SOMETIME SOON at the prize. He won a bumper on soft going here in February and, while not as good in two more starts, the point-to-point winner was always liable to be best seen once jumping. Jan Maat and The Shunter also make some appeal on hurdles bow while both Tournoi and Ishyaboi could improve their hurdling lots for this drop in distance and worth considering.
